First off, I loved the room. It was clean and modern and had huge glass windows with amazing views. The no door on the bathroom thing was kind of weird but even my teenage daughter was finally ok using it if everyone promised "not to look." The pool was fun and they had a couple of pool toys everyone could play with which was nice. The breakfast offered was pretty good and the restaurant food was good, though excessively priced. It is a very hilly property which might not work for some people.

This is not a beachfront hotel. You have to walk down some steep stairs, across the main road and down a rocky hill to get to the beach. It wasn't too bad of a walk but the beach has no amenities. Sometimes there is a guy there renting out boogie boards and chairs with umbrellas but the are no bathrooms at all which was difficult because we had been sick for several days.

I read that there was supposed to be good snorkeling here but the water was either too rough or too murky to go snorkeling, even though we tried several times.

There are a couple of cool restaurants around the town within walking distance but again those are either uphill or by taxi.

The hotel has it's own taxi and the employees are incredibly helpful. It's a beautiful view and Samara is only 15 minutes away and $10 by taxi. You can hear monkeys and see birds too.

We are pleased to read you liked our rooms and the food, but are sorry to hear about the problems at the beach and the snorkeling. We have addressed this with the team to ensure we improve on this.

Greetings,

By far our best hotel in Costa Rica. Nammbu is a 10m or so drive away from the nearest town so is a lovely place to relax.
The rooms are spacious, ultra-modern and have large balconies (if you have a corner room you will get a double balcony). The bathrooms 5* with double sinks and mirrors, and a huge shower
They are a touch 'style over function' as there were no wardrobes, just a hanging rail (in the bathroom?), plugs were not close to mirrors and a few other minor points which were niggles rather than complaints.
The infinity pool and surrounding area has lovely views over the beach but limited shade.
Drinks and food, both in the restaurant (lovely views from the balconies) and from the bar area around the pool were delicious, and there was a cocktail hour every evening where you could have 2 for 1 in a tasteful way!
Staff without exception couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
I would highly recommend

Room Tip: Corner rooms have larger/double balconies and pool views

The hotel is new in the zone, about 3 years old.
The food I tried was delicious. The room was quite confortable, with a great view to the ocean, probably the best one of the hotel.
Staff is friendly, willing to help you at any moment.

Room Tip: Rooms 405 and 407 have the best view

We enjoyed our stay at Nammbu. Helpful staff. Nice accommodations with large rooms. We were surprised it had been open 2 years. Seemed a little bit unfinished. The pool and view are outstanding. The drinks by the pool were great and relaxing. The restaurant was very good for both dinner and breakfast.
