After our bus arrives from Orono we decided to get lunch close to the bus terminal. Check to TripAdvisor and hotel El Bambu restaurant looked fine. Food was good. Girlfriend had nice fish Casado. I did not like my eggplant lasagna.. way too cheesy for me

We stayed here for two nights, in a family room [2 adults 2 children 8 and 5] as we were doing some rafting. The town has little else to offer but this hotel is lovely. We arrived at night and the street side was a little off putting but once inside it was just lovely. The rooms are basic but clean and fabulous showers. The walkways internally are beautiful, clean and really good fun! The staff were great; friendly, welcoming and helpful. They provided clean, dry towels for the pool which they happily replaced on request. The pool is heavenly, great size, great depth and beautifully clean.

Our room was spacious, but had a couple of issues. The door onto the balcony wouldn't lock and the bath had cracks in it and leaked. We used the laundry service and our clothes were returned still dirty - they said housekeeping must have forgotten! The rest of the hotel was fine though. The pool was decent and the food at both breakfast and on a night was pretty good as they seemed to be very few other places close by to eat.

The localization is very good. Food is very bad and that's why I give 4 stars instead of 5. The should really improve it, it is better to go to a Soda and have traditional food at a much cheaper price. The highlight was definitely the tour with Angel, a very passionate and knowledgeable person who showed us many animals. We managed to see a velvet snake!!! Thanks Angel for making our stop in Sarapiqui worth it.

I loved this hotel! The staff were super kind and very help even with my 20 kids. they had towels ready for us, they had meals on time and they cleaned the rooms in expectation of us. The staff or great they were able to help set up activities and made the stay amazing. The pool was in the middle of the hotel and there is a fun walk way set up. The location is in the center of town and is easy to get around in.
