My family has traveled on a vacation about twice per year. I feel I can give an honest review of the Riu Bambu. My teenaged daughter and I traveled there june/july 2015 fora little get away. When we booked this spot in March it was rated 5 star. We expected 5 star. What we discovered was far less. Rooms- very... More

I went here in the first week of June with 2 friends. The resort is great really clean and big. We had a room which was just a short walk from the bar, reception and swimming pool. We had been told that some rooms could be around a 10-15 min walk so I think we were really lucky. The room... More

I booked this hotel for our honeymoon as it was classified as a 5* on the first choice website. However, this rating is incorrect and should be amended. The hotel might wish to call themselves a 5* but the state of the rooms, poor customer service (unless you were generous with tips), dirty pool and food which i wouldn't even... More

Did not have any noise or disruptions. Air conditioner ok, mainly used ceiling fan. Only recd. new towels 3 times during our 7... More

We booked this hotel because of the kids club. The lady at the kids club was super friendly, except she did not pay attention to the kids. She will stay at the gate talking to someone while kids are in the swimming pool right behind her. Our 3 year old son walked out of the place and she did not... More

Visited here back in 2013 and can't wait to return. This hotel certainly has the wow factor, along with pretty much every place along the beach here. Stayed for two weeks and had a fabulous time, rooms are a big size, beds are huge and a mini bar is a nice welcome :-) John&Jackie

Went to the Bambu for the first time and found the staff (as usual in the Dominican) very helpful and friendly. The hotel is kept very clean and the rooms are cleaned daily. I went there with my 42 year old daughter and grown-up grandson and his partner. This was their first time in the Dominican Republic were this is... More

This is the fifth time we have visited this Hotel in six years and if anything it is getting better and better. The quality and choice of food is second to none. Public areas are always clean and well maintained, both the garden areas and the beach. Staff are so friendly and willing to help in any way. Our A/C... More
