It's mid October and I feel like I am at the start of Summer, with perfect hot weather - sun bathing and outdoor swimming friendly. I've stayed at Bambu before but this is my first time as a solo traveller. I knew it would be the perfect spot to flex my solo travelling muscles though, as the warm welcome from... More

We booked the studio apartment with private balcony/patio. It was lovely and light. The outer door has mesh on to keep the bugs out, as does the window so during the day you could get a nice breeze coming thro without unwanted guests flying around. The huge bed is v comfortable - we have a king size water bed at... More

I went on a solo week, where most people tend to be travelling on their own. It's a wonderful and rural location, with bambu trees and ripe avocados and mangos lining the small lane up to Bambu. There are breath taking views of the mountains and nearby villages during the day and the stars at night. I stayed in one... More

This was my first solo travelling experience, and it was the best thing I've done in a long time. Bambu itself is secluded and charming, with a variety of rooms and practical features to make the stay comfortable. e.g. honesty bar, freezer full of ice, bbq and huge communal table. I was in a room right next to the pool... More

This was my first visit to Bambu and I will definitely be going back. After a nightmare flight I arrived to be met by Catherine who took the time to make me feel welcome despite it being after 3am on a Sunday morning! Both Catherine and Suzanne were very welcoming and obviously go out of their way to make sure... More

Bambú is a beautiful complex in rural Andalusia for women only. My partner and I had a wonderful week-long stay recently, enjoying ourselves immensely. The complex was a little hard to find, and as we arrived late it was too dark to read the instructions. However, the owners are so accommodating and will either help you find your way or... More

This was our first visit to this part of Spain and as it was our honeymoon we decided to give Bambu a try. It is a renovated farm house at the top of a steep dirt track/road surrounded by fruit farms. The views are wonderful, green rolling hills and mountains. We had the top room with the balcony and although... More

Bambu is a marvelous resort in the beautiful countryside of Spain. The views are gorgeous, the rooms are immaculate, the host was welcoming and the guests were friendly. I instantly felt right at home. This is a special place that should not be missed and on every woman's itinerary.
