The whole family had lots of fun and activities to take part, in and around the resort. We had a great relaxing time in a Sun soaked island resort with great facilities and wonderful service and mouth- watering variety of food. Several restaurants on site to choose from. Clean beaches with the ability to walk over to other hotels on...

I did notice that the cups in our room were not cleaned or replaced, but just turned back upside down and placed on the tray (very disconcerting after...

The location of this resort is fantastic! The beach is beautiful and if you need shade there are plenty of palm trees! The staff throughout was very kind and friendly. This is our 3rd trip back to Bambu. It is not the fanciest or must updated resort, but it certainly serves a purpose of getting away from the cold Ohio...

“Possibly closer to the activities centre so long they don't mind the music. But the walk to the rooms are a great pleasant experience.”

“You can have a laugh at the main lively pool or choose to relax near a quieter pool.”

“I had and old fashion room but it was much closer to a restaurant and main part of the hotel! Choose room on the top floor.”

“Ask the front desk to let you see several rooms before you pick one. The closer you get to the Lobby, the noiser.”
