This hotel has been part of the community here in Canoa for over 20 years and do amazing things for the town before and after the earthquake. Life continues on here with WiFi and the regular menu when most hotels are not up to service again. Come see! Rooms as cheap as $10 and camping available. Bring in a bag... More

We stayed here a few years ago and wanted to visit Canoa again after the earthquake. Re-opened recently, we stayed in the same second-floor cabaña with sea- and river view. The meal we had in the restaurant was very good and Joost a nice host!

This is probably the nicest place left on the beach after the earthquake. I'm really picky about cleanliness and a nice shower at a hotel, and this place made the cut. The owner was very kind and friendly. We definitely enjoyed our stay.

We jumped ship to Hotel Bambu after one night at Amalur and incredibly glad we did. Our room above the river was wonderfully quiet and we saw amazing bird life just sitting on the veranda in the morning & evening. Breakfast was really good there & the daily dinner special was fantastic value & great quality. Our room was kept... More

I just saw Yost and his wife in a video. The hotel is closed lots of damage. They have been preparing meals outdoors for the rescue workers. My husband is still in Canoa. Today they had aftershocks of 6.8. I will go to Canoa in July to help with rebuilding and keep you informed about the Hotel situation.

We stayed here for a week and loved it. The place is super laid back and everyone there is great. All the food and drinks and the general atmosphere was just what we were hoping for. The only negatives would be these: - every once in a great while there would be an odd odor that wafted over from the... More
