Stayed in Riu Bambu August 2015. As a family of 6 (kids aged 8 - 15) we were initially squeezed into 2 standard rooms which was totally inadequate. Standard rooms are OK for a couple and 1 small child but not suitable for 3 people otherwise - whatever they try to say. 'Family' room was ok for 2 adults and... More

We just returned to Toronto last night from our 8 night vacation with family. There were 9 of us travelling in total and the resort staff did an amazing job accommodating us at every encounter. Check-in was so fast and easy as everything was prepared for us in advance, our luggage was carried to our rooms right away as well.... More

Travelled to Punta Cana in August 2015. After reading some of the reviews I was very nervous about our visit to the Riu Bambu but can honestly say please don't listen to the moaners, its obvious some people wouldn't be satisfied wherever they were staying. . The airport is one of the most organised I have traveled through, by the... More

Housekeeping did an exceptional job in keeping room spotlessly clean, all servers were pleasant, food was good and restaurant staff were constantly on the go. Reception desk - extremely rude and confrontational....should be retrained in all aspects of customer experience and satisfaction. Sunwing rep - Ricky...did not show up on time and did not relay reliable flight information; we ended... More

Originally was supposed to stay at Naiboa, got upgraded to Bambu. Stayed Friday to Monday. Had such a good experience, we stayed an extra day. Rooms were sufficient. Stocked with water, soda, and liquor. No internet, which is expected. Living in DR, internet is terrible and expensive. Then again, I am on vacation, what the hell do I need internet.... More

All the staff were very friendly. Specially Ariel was super nice. We enjoyed our stay. We loved having the beach so close. The beach is beautiful. The rooms were ok, not luxurious, but clean. The two beds were too small. We asked for an extra bed and they were very kind and provided one for us. I had a very... More

Most miserable people on the earth all work here! Pools are dangerous! When my son had an accident on broken tiles in pool it was reported and nothing was done the next 10 days we were there. Air con doesn't work and didn't try to fix, rooms smelt of fags and mould. On 2 separate occasions in 2 different rooms... More

Just got back from the Riu Bambu this past Saturday August 15th. This hotel is on a property with other Riu hotels, in comparison with the other hotels, the Riu Bambu is mediocre. Still had a good time at this resort, food was decent from what we were expecting. As for the A La Cartes, the Mexican was the best,... More

I believe I have quite high standards but that I'm also realistic, and I honestly can't understand some of the negative reviews I've seen of this place. I visited in July/August with my 18 year old daughter and we had a lovely time. To summarise: Check-in - this was quick, easy and well organised. We were given a welcome drink... More
