The value of a 7 day all inclusive visit to the Dominican Republic with a direct flight from Nashville for $800 cannot be denied. We booked with Vacation express and flew Sun Wing air. Great for young couples and inexperienced travelers on a budget. NOT for anyone else. WHAT TO EXPECT: HOTEL -rooms are small with 2 double beds pushed... More

Stayed at the Riu Bambu for a week and had a great time. Ok so it's nothing majorly special but what do you expect?? The hotel doesn't claim to be 5* so if that's what your looking for this isn't the place for you. Upon check in we managed to upgrade our rooms by giving the receptionist a tip. She... More

Lovely hotel, lovely food and very friendly staff. I see a lot of reviews complaining that the staff don't speak much English! I have a tip for you, try learning a little Spanish. Our room was always kept clean and our fridge was always properly stocked with drinks. The grounds are fantastically well kept the gardeners work hard to keep... More

The Riu Bambu is a beautiful place, in a great location with the beach right on your doorstep. We stayed here for the first time in 2012 and had the time of our lives, it was our first visit to the Dom Rep and it didn't disappoint in anyway. However, we noticed from visiting this year (29th April-15th May) the... More

Although it was a while back we stayed at this amazing hotel I will never forgot how lovely it was. We had a room right on the beach to the left of the pool bar. It was perfect and was like being in paradise. The buffet restaurants were ok and after a few days did repeat but the option to... More

Lovely hotel which offers all the facilities you would expect from a Riu. We decided to upgrade and stay in a Deluxe Double Room which I can honestly say was worth the money for the extra comfort, additional space provided even on the balcony, free WiFi and an overall fresher appearance - especially when we we're spending 10 nights there....

The DR is beautiful as was the lobby, beach area and pools of the Riu Bambu. Drinks were runny and not the frosty delight you expect. From our initial check-in through our delivery back to the Punta Cana Airport, all of the staff had their hand out for gratituties. Food was inconsistent and each of the ladies in our party... More
