My wife and I were at the Riu Bambu from 21st April-5th May, 2005. I kept an eye on the reviews before we left and was a little concerned about some of the negatives. It turned out that we did not experience anything negative what so ever at the Riu Bambu.
The food was great, the pool was beautiful, the beach spectacular, the workers were friendly and attentive. Drinks were fantastic and if they don't put enough liquor in your drink they just bring the bottle over and pour til you say stop (alto). The rooms are absolutely immaculate, bordering sterile. I also never spoke to anybody who was having any health/stomach problems and only saw 1 cockroach the whole week.
Remember that unless you are a Dominican you are in a foreign country and it will not be like home. We have stayed at other RIU hotels and they are all great, the Bambu and ALL the staff make for a perfect holiday.
