The accomodation claims to be luxurious but it is not, more like below average. Especially for that price. Even the best suite has mold on its walls, clearly visible dark spots. Overall impression is weary and used. We do agree most parts about the quality of the rooms with the

Response from CatherineBambu, Owner at Bambú Country House Holiday Studios
Responded 26 Dec 2018
We have no record of anyone of a name similar to this, or with a Berlin connection, staying at Bambú in May or at any other time during 2018. Anyone reading this please be aware of how effective poor reviews can be in damaging a business and consider the motivations of the writer. Instead please read the majority of other reviews.

Wow!! Where do we start? The location and views were exquisite. It is remote and only slightly rustic due to location. The grounds were well kept. The pool was crystal clear and blue. Our host was very responsive and always available. The open courtyard and community spaces

I have waited a while since returning from our holiday to write this because I needed time to reflect & calm down, & be level headed whilst writing. However, I find myself every bit as disappointed as when we first returned home. Alarm bells began to ring before the holiday when

This is actually my second rewritten response to this horrible review. You have no idea how as an owner of a business, one takes these reviews very personally. Readers will note that this is the first bad review we’ve had for years. After a few days of mulling it over, I realise that this is a personal attack, designed to damage our business. Despite several red herrings in the review in order to disguise her identity, we know who the author is. She has actually stayed twice and had hoped to come back next year. Of course her returning is now unthinkable. We have been in touch by email and she is devastated that she can never come back. Although she mentions Susanne in her review, Susanne was actually in the UK for the duration of this woman’s second stay at Bambú. I think she was personally affronted that Susanne was not here. She had also clearly hoped that I would spend much more of my time socialising and chatting with her and the other guests - but I cannot do that – this is my home and my life and my job. I don’t doubt that there was a cobweb in the lamp and some tiny patch of grubbiness in a corner of the room, however there is no way that the room hygiene was anything like she implies. Our cleaning woman, Marivi, is excellent – she cleans and preps each suite between guests for approx. 1¼ hours and Susanne or I always go in for a quality check, which usually takes about 15 minutes. This review is full of untruths and says more about the guest than it says about Bambú. I would love to make some personal comments about her, but I guess that wouldn’t be professional in a public forum – but if anyone reading this review would like to know more about the context in which it was written and the person who wrote it then please contact me (Catherine) directly. I repeat – almost every word said in this review is untrue – it is an attempt to hurt us (me, Catherine, especially) and damage our business.

Visited Bambu August 16th 2018 for a week on a solo week. Nervous going away on your own as I haven't had to do it for many years but so glad I did. A beautiful place you don't need to go out as long as your with a good bunch of customers. Lucky for me I met 8 fantastic women 9

Just back from an amazing solo week at Bambu Country House in Andalusia Spain for Women - my 4th trip! Was absolutely wonderful. Lovely, charming, fun, friendly women. The place is secluded with stunning mountain views all around nestled in Spanish avocado and mango groves

Only two of the seven apartments are up steps. The rest are all ground floor. No lift that I saw unless it was well hidden.
