My wife and I and our two perritos were extremely fortunate to stumble across this establishment! We have been traveling throughout much of Costa Rica for the last 5 years and with great difficulty have recently declared Tamarindo to be our favorite town to call "home". In that time we have stayed in many hotels, casitas, condos and private residencies. For us this property is now THE ONE TO BEAT. It is even more beautiful than the online pictures with 360 degree views of the entire region from the observation deck and ocean views from most of the property. The location is super quiet and private. Sitting by the pool was so tranquil that many times we skipped the beach. Joe the owner is a wonderful neighbor and it was a pleasure living with him and his "family" for the month we were there. It was a prefect place for our 2 small dogs because it is completely fenced in and secure. Also, our dogs were more than tolerated and were treated as family. The grounds are super meticulously maintained by Joe and Pablo. The rooms are more than adequate in size for our needs and extremely well taken care of. We stayed in the 1st floor studio but all the rooms are comparable with the exception of the honeymoon suite being substantially larger. Everything functioned as it should have for the entirety of our stay and the cleanliness of everything exceeded our expectations. The location to Tamarindo center is less than 10 minutes walk by way of the fabulous nature trail but there is shopping, restaurants and even the local gym that are just a few minutes walk away. I was almost selfishly tempted not to write this review because I don't want too many people to find out about this place but it is so deserving of great reviews that I had no choice. If you do decide on Casa Bambora I hope your stay will be as wonderful as ours was!!!
