        Nice hotel close to the beach. We were very happy with our stay here. Hannah and staff were very pleasant and helpful. We had breakfasts and dinners in the restaurant, and the food was delicious, and the portions generous every time. The walk to beautiful Playa Grande Beach was very short. We would definitely stay here again!

            Warm, Friendly and Tropical!Let me start by saying that I am an air conditioned hotel room kind of traveler! My husband found Flor y Bambu on line and thought "glamping" sounded like such fun! I reluctantly agreed. Our teenage son was all for it! Well, I needlessly worried about being too warm sleeping in a tent. The breeze ...
