I read a lot of reviews of this Hotel before my vacation and I was getting really worried because of the many poor reviews from people who went recently. I went to Riu Bambu from July 15th to July 22nd and I've decided that anyone who gives this place a bad review is just being nitpicky (and that's coming from... More

Where do I start......? Pool- not very big and crowded. Kids everywhere. No one enforced the adult pool with the swim up bar. I kept getting splashed and pool (pee water) kept getting in my drink. Horrible Beach- absolutely beautiful, however, sea weed is a huge issue. My opinion, find a resort on the Caribbean side. This resort is on... More

Stayed at Riu Palace Los Cabos 5 times and I guess we are spoiled. Check in was smooth. Upgraded to deluxe room for king bed and free WiFi in room. Room was just as photos showed. Room clean with flower petals scattered around also towel sculptures. AC worked great room always cool. Had one day where it was high humidity,... More

This place truly has potential but sadly my stay wasn't one that I would like to relive. First off the biggest room for a family of 5 was a room with two beds and a pull out, not big at all. I usually need one firm pillow to sleep but needed 4. The pillows are the definition of flat! The... More

The staff were amazing! Helpful, fun, entertaining and made us feel very welcome and i still speak to some of them now! Rooms were a perfect size but could do with being a bit cleaner in the shower. Food was nice and fresh. Would definitely return.

The staff at the Riu ClubHotel were very helpful, and friendly. We used 8 rooms at the site, and one of them had bugs early in the stay. The guests were moved to a luxury room and no further sightings were found. The restaurants all had pretty much the same food for lunch, no matter where you chose to eat.... More

The best things about this property are all about the Dominican people that work so hard to make our stay enjoyable...The things that aren't so good are 1. the beach..even thought there are palm trees all over the beach which give good shade and the abundance of chairs the water is unswimmable...seaweed! I read about it on other reviews and... More

It was very relaxing and I enjoyed the vacation a lot. I didn't indulge in the evening dining selection because you had to make reservations in the morning. I just preferred to eat at the buffet during my stay, which was very good. I went scuba diving there and it was beautiful. I prefer smaller venues and with the ability... More
