I stayed at Bamboo Hideway with my two sons and daughter in law and although the place itself is nice the problem really is that it is run by a couple almost single handedly so both myself and the boys felt that we were almost imposing on them by being there. It really felt like you were invited guests in their home and as a result it was a bit awkward asking them for anything, and even impossible at times. One evening my bathroom door had been locked and when I went to look for them to open it at 9pm (ish) the bar was closed up and they were no where to be found so I basically had no use of the bathroom all night and had to use the loo in the bar area. Also they lock the fridges at night in the bar area so once they head of to bed, that's it and although I didn't want to party all night I would have enjoyed the facility to be able to order a drink later than 9pm!!
Another thing is that it is located very much off the beaten track and so please allow the cost of hiring motorbikes to use to get about as it is no where near a beach or even a small shop. The roads are pretty unmade so I actually did fall off my bike which made the trip even less attractive!!
The couple themselves who run it are lovely people but I think it really would only be suitable for anyone who wants to go and hide away or meditate for a few days as thats pretty much all you could do there.
