Just got back (last week) from two lovely weeks at the Riu Bambu,
Looking on the positives the building and grounds are immaculate and are a credit to the hard work the staff obviously put in.
The beach is one of the nicest I have ever seen, soft powdery sand and the occasional butterfly fluttering down wind.
The sea is the Carib-Lantic as Punta Cana is on the point where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic so during the time we where there it was quite choppy on some days and not really safe to swim in.
The food in the hotel was ok, having now stayed at two other Riu’s it was not as good as the other ones but by no means was it bad, there was always something to eat and a good selection, the Asian restaurant was especially nice.
There was some building work quite close to our accommodation but this did not impact on the holiday and did not make much noise
No gripes or moans all in all it was a excellent value for money holiday
