We traveled here february 27th to march 5 2012.we paid 1050 dollars pp for this trip. the only complaint i have is the food. I have a friend who also traveled the same time as we did that stayed at the ocean blue who payed 1750 pp. the food at our place was beautifully presented, but we feasted on the cheapest of cheap food. i ate many salads because that was about all i could get down. pasta , which was served at lunch and dinner was over cooked and swollen, one night for dinner there was supposed to be filet mignon with bacon served, never saw it. one night lamb was supposed to be served, never saw that. only served bacon for breakfast twice in the week. mashed potatoes was an everyday option at breakfast. we ordered a pizza 3 days into our trip and it was the best thing we had all week. could not, would not of been able to eat the food one more day. meanwhile my friend at ocean blue feasted on grilled lobster, carving stations with ham and roastbeef. they also had acces to food 24 hours a day. we were told we had 24 access to food, i guess we did. i slept through dinner one night and woke up at 11 30 p.m. ventured out to find something to eat. the only option there was, was small sandwhiches with one thin slice of lunch meat and a tomatoe inside of a plastic to go box. they also had a piece of fruit in a to go box. all of this was stacked in a cooler. meanwhile my friend at ocean blue was able to order food from a menu 24 /7. food is awful at the riu bambu, i guess u really do get what u pay for
