After a long day at the beach we decided on entertainment right outside our door. Bamboo has a great setting. Tiki torches, canopies in a garden setting with a huge screen showing surf videos. We attended the fire dancer show for free. Not too bad.

If you decide to eat here, do yourself a favor and do not order a pizza. No fresh ingredients are used and overal it tasted like a microwave pizza from the supermarket.
