This is a great spot, hotel location and beach are excellent, the let down is the food quality and more specifically the wine, I had to pay one of the bar tenders to bring in wine form the city as there are no local options. All in all, I would go again and be prepared with my own wine....futhermore, tip...

Just got back from the Riu Bambu. We had an amazing family vacation with a few hiccups. The grounds are absolutely beautiful as well as the beach ... Stunning!!! The food was very good, although they need to figure out a better system to booking A la Carte restaurants. This you had to be in line for 6:30am at least,...

My vacation was more than what I had expected. Such a relaxing time with silence when needed and party time when needed. The resort is so big to where you don't have to leave to find fun things to do (unless of course if you are going on an excursion). I would totally reccomend this place to families with small...

Travelled to Punta Cana for the 3rd time (My boyfriends 1st time) at the end of February 2013. We picked the Riu Bambu as it was in our limited/last minute budget for a beach vacation. As my boyfriend had never travelled to any island before, I had suggested Punta Cana as the beaches are beyond beautiful. We chose the Riu...

We recently took advantage of the 5 apple square deal in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We were assigned to the RIU BAMBU and were quite pleased with this resort. The Apple Rep (Petra) is the most informative Rep we have dealt with on our many vacations. They have added another pool in the last 5 years which is very nice...

This is our fifth RIU we have stayed at so we were thrilled when we found out that this was our hotel on the Apple square deal. We were a little disappointed to say the least. To be fair, unlike other reviewers our rooms were spotless, we did not get sick, and overall treated very well. It's just not the...

I stayed at Riu Bambu from March 4th to the 11th with 7 friends, an entire group of 16 people. It has been by far my best vacation ever taken. The food was delicious! Always delicious breakfasts and lunches at either mama Juana or the gigantic buffet! You name it, they have it! We went to the Italian restaurant, the...

“Possibly closer to the activities centre so long they don't mind the music. But the walk to the rooms are a great pleasant experience.”

“You can have a laugh at the main lively pool or choose to relax near a quieter pool.”

“Ask the front desk to let you see several rooms before you pick one. The closer you get to the Lobby, the noiser.”
