I have travelled across Europe, The Caribbean & The USA on many occassions. I have seen my fair share of amazing hotels and crap ones.. When I saw the reviews of this hotel I was extremely concerned. The flight from Manchester was straight forward I wasnt impressed with some of the air hostess staff but just slept as much as... More

Recently came back from Riu Bambu with a few of my friends and we had such a good time. I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews but it turned out to be the opposite! I recommend getting the deluxe rooms for they are newer rooms and better beds. My room didn't have any musty smell however another... More

We have just returned from our 2 week stay at Riu Bambu, which on the whole we throughly enjoyed. I was surprised to find optics in our room as we only had a standard room, it was cleaned everyday & everyone was very friendly & polite. Beautiful beach, 4 restaurants, the Italian was our favourite. Recommend the Outback Safari &... More

Myself and my partner have recently returned from a 2 week holiday at this hotel. Check in was quick and efficient and we was given all necessary information in an envelope to read at our leisure. We found all the staff polite and friendly. We stayed in a standard room which was clean and ready on arrival. Only criticism about... More

Visited early April this year. My husband had misgivings because of a few negative reviews. Our experience was very positive. Staff was cordial and helpful. Variety of food. To eat at different restaurants, one has to get in line to make the reservation, but several nights and restaurants can be reserved at the same time. Abundance of palm trees and... More

SO DISSAPOINTED. I read some bad reviews but thought we would try RIU Bambu. he property is alright. Not much to see but cute. They allow the small kids to swim in the adult area pools, even around the swim-up bar there are small kids splashing water in your face. Everyone we spoke to at the resort agreed on 2... More

Got back from Riu Sunday. Best I can say is that rooms were clean, but very small. Motel rooms were thin boxes. Could hear all noises. Bar tenders would ignore you for minutes while waiting on new customers. Smoking allowed everywhere except enclosed restaurants. Nothing like thinking you will eat breakfast and listen to the ocean and feel the breeze... More
