My 5 star review comes from the understanding that this is a 3-4 star resort hotel and I got exactly what I wanted (and more) out of this vacation. This review is coming from a 28yo M traveling with his significant other. We used Apple Vacations (who uses Amstar in Punta Cana) which was a great choice! Arrival: The airport... More

We celebrated our honeymoon with a ten night stay at the beginning of May. We were drawn to the hotel by the fantastic price we found with Thomson. £800 for ten nights all inclusive was too good to turn down. We received a positive welcome to the hotel by the reception staff and the check-in process was quick and efficient.... More

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at this hotel from 23rd April to 6th May 2015. We had excellent weather with, as far as I am aware, no rain at all during our stay. The temperature was between 29 and 32 degrees Celsius, during the day and between 23 and 27 at night. After a long tiring flight from... More

Amazing place to stay, was there for two weeks, the staff are amazing the best service, they couldn't do more for us. The bar staff were always in a good mood, always up for a laugh. Special mention to Cristian, and the staff at mamajuana's both evening time and at breakfast! The entertainment team are fab! They work incredibly hard... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from Punta Cana. We stayed at the Riu Bambu in one of their very nice deluxe rooms. Check-in was a bit of a mess - they seemed pretty unorganized; they told us to leave our bags in the lobby and some one would bring them up to the room later on. We started... More

We have just returned from 2 absolutely fantastic weeks at this Hotel, from the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome, and special. The staff are very friendly and very helpful, and although Spanish is the local language, the majority of staff speak English ( schoolboy Spanish did help.) In the Hotel there are 6 restaurants, so finding... More

The main issue we found in this hotel is the awful customer services from the front desk to almost the entire staff . The fact that we were here seemed to be a inconvince to them, which made the atmosphere bleak. On a positive note the beach is beautiful, sea warm where we spent most of our time relaxing. Food...

My wife Lynda, friends Carol and Steve arrived here on April 16 2015. We left on 30th April and have never laughed so much in our lives. What a fantastic holiday. Thomson reps. Sharron and Judy were five star plus. Best welcome meeting we have had. So much useful information delivered in a fun way. Make sure you leave lots... More
