I spent a week at Bambu from 31 Oct 2011 and was very glad I had picked this one from my impulsive Google search! My first solo holiday, having only recently started to 'come out', so I was a little apprehensive as to what to expect. Catherine was great during the booking process, with follow up advice about the holiday and was also available during the week I was there with suggestions and tips. My accommodation was excellent with everything I needed (except a hair dryer), clean and very comfortable. On the first night, we had an impromptu tour of each other's rooms and I would have been happy to stay in any of them. I was lucky with the weather with it being end of season, having 4 days of hot sun, chilling out beside the pool making friends and sharing experiences. The pool was great but, as you would expect in November, very cold! The walk into the nearby village is about 20 mins down an uneven road/track, mainly downhill going, so obviously mostly uphill coming back - not recommended if you are getting shopping or having a few beers! On the two days that it was wet (thunderstorms), we had a trip into Malaga and to the caves at Nerja, with Catherine as our taxi.
If you are looking for a holiday where you just want to chill out and make new friends, this is certainly the one. I will definitely be going back.
