“Great, family friendly, relaxed hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

We just spent a very relaxing weekend at Hotel Bambu and really enjoyed it. It is set in wonderful and extensive gardens with loads of hummingbirds, birds and butterflies. The children loved the pool and had plenty of space to run around playing. The rooms were clean and tidy, with good bathrooms and powerful showers. The food was really good too - we were a bit worried having read a couple of other reviews from a few years ago that it wansnt very good, but we ate and drank very well. the menu is not extensive, but we had the steak, chicken, home made burgers and pizzas and they were all delicious. A lovely and well priced get away, thank you Miguel and crew!!

Comfortable rooms with good food and good service. The coffee is outstanding. Don't forget to being some home. Beautiful well kept grounds and views. Picture perfect. Wonderful stay. Looking forward to another visit in 2014. Bring your own hair dryer.

On May 25th 2013 our daughter got married to a wonderful young man from Santiago Atitlán at the Bambú. It was a total success! The owner, José, and all his wonderful employees worked tirelessly to make a day to remember forever. The beautiful gardens were at their best and during the preparations the day before we had great support from the staff and owner. The wedding was an all day event, ceremony in the morning followed by lunch and wedding cake for 250 people, a break in the afternoon -it took place during the rainy season so we were concerned about the weather- and in the evening a beautiful party for 125 people with great appetizers, drinks and music followed by a very good dinner, more music and dancing. We really asked too much from Bambú, at the beginning it was to be a much smaller wedding and it kept getting bigger and bigger. Bambú responded and met our needs as the great pros they are.The service was fabulous, the rooms impeccable, the showers great. An experience we'll never forget!

I had lunch here after finding my own hotel disappointing and toured the property. Nice private bungalows that are airy and bright, in a quite area away from the pueblo. Great pool, lukewarm, as in all of Atitlan. The restaurant had nice food and great service - thanks to the servers for the Spanish practice. It's a great property, I'd give it a chance. There is a well-regarded Spanish school nearby and everything a 5Q tuk-tuk ride away, regardless. There are lower priced rooms in a hotel structure near the bungalows which also looked very nice and a triplex-casita nearer the pool. All looked clean and bright.

Room Tip: The bungalow closest to the lake has the best view and, once the restaurant closes, is likely the qu...

The situation is fantastic-right on the lake with gorgeous views. Great for a stroll around the beautiful grounds or for just hanging out watching birds. The suites are comfortable and spacious-ours was far more than we needed and the food is plentiful and tasty. The owners also arranged trips to volcano and a walking tour of Santiago with a local guide who was great.

Highly recommended

We thought we had arrived in Paradise when we stayed at the Bambu. Though it is a few minute tuk tuk ride from the heart of town, it is utterly gorgeous, located at the mouth of the harbor in an exquisite setting that is made for R&R. The rooms are large and clean and offer private outdoor balconies. Lunch on the balcony of the restaurant is better than dinner. The location can either be a plus or a minus, depending on your preference for being close to the center of town or a bit outside in your own paradise.

We arrived at Bambu after a terrible experience at Posada, where the inhospitable owner refused to serve us for no reason at all. It only took a few minutes at Bambu for that to feel like ancient history. The staff were so friendly, and the food was delicious. We spent a couple of wonderful hours enjoying our lunch by the lake, and I hope to return many times in the future.
