A week at Casa Bambora in Tamarindo, Costa Rica was our introduction to this popular, vibrant surf town.
A rutted roller coaster of a road brought us up to Casa Bambora. (All of the roads are rutted at this time of year from the rainy season we would soon discover)
Once there, we were met by the owner, Joe, a California surfer, who relocated here 25 years ago. He helped unstoppable our room and we quickly adjusted to vacation mode.
Casa Bambora is on top of a hill with a tremendous view of the sunset over the Pacific and a path leads you down the hill and into town in 10-15 minutes.
The room we were in was extremely large with a comfortable bed and spacious full kitchen and private bath with hot water. There was a safe in the room. The air conditioning worked great and the hammock on the wraparound deck was relaxing.
The pool was refreshing and we enjoyed it daily.
Joe was a great host. There to ask questions but left you to enjoy your privacy.
Will certainly return

“Excellant!!”

Had an awesome time in Tamarindo staying at Casa Bambora !! Would highly recommend to anyone! Only concern was the walk down to the town was difficult and then uphill back but was rectified by renting a car! If you have any physical limitations a car rental is a good idea. The view from the lookout was incredible ! We really enjoyed cooking and grilling our meals in the outdoor kitchen and the pool was definitely appreciated on those 35-38 celsius days!

“It deserved the 2014 Tripadvisor Excellence Award”

We had four couples in our group, each occupying a room. We were very pleased with the rooms, the pool, security, and of course the owner, Joey. The pictures on trip advisor does not give this place justice. It is so beautifully landscaped and kept very clean. The ocean views are excellent from most of the rooms and rooftop where we all watched the sunset daily. We were picked up and dropped off at the airport by arranged transportation which went very smoothly. Joey advised us on the best tours to go on and arranged them for us. He is very knowledgeable in all the local hotspots, restaurants, the Saturday market, grocery stores, taxi's...everything. I could not have stayed at a better place, just on the edge of town but yet close enough to all the things everyone wanted to do. I want to thank Joey for making our vacation the best! I would stay here again without question.

Liked best: The group area for hanging out.
Liked least: The path to town would not be good for older or disabled folks but a taxi is just $4.00.

Yes it is up a hill and a bit of a hike to get back to from the beach, but hey, how else do you get a killer view? The overall build quality and furnishings of this place is excellent. Joey the owner really pays attention to detail and it shows. Has a stove, fridge and dishes to allow home cooking. Good flat screen tv, really quality bed and bedding, great tile bathroom. In fact there's tile everywhere. I had to find another place for the last 2 days in Tamarindo and they were awful compared to Casa Bambora.

“Fantastic AGAIN!”

We rented the third floor studio for a second time this year. The accommodations were great, just as last time, and the owner Joey has made additional renovations and is keeping the property superb. He assisted with fishing and restaurant reservations and we had everything one would need; wifi, flatscreen television, stove, coffeemaker, large refrigerator, wrap around porch with beautiful views of the ocean and a roof deck. Also a nice swimming pool, hammocks, outdoor kitchen, and shower. Short walk to town and its a fantastic place to visit. Can't wait to go again and will definitely recommend to family and friends.
