It is shame that TUI has this hotel in it's offer. But I think that nowadays TUI is like this hotel:(( this is max 3 stars egyptian level hotel, and only tourists who are used to this standard can recomended this hotel. Food is exectly the same every day and this mainly american style: fat and bad. In "a la... More

Went here on a girls vacation and fell in love with the staff as well as with the resort. The main pool is absolutely gorgeous and the staff were always friendly and playing tricks on us! Had a blast and would definitely go again! In comparison to the other Riu resorts in the area, it's classified as the "lower end"... More

We hand an absolute blast. RIU Bambu was a great stay for us. Food was good, room was good, pool was fun, bars were nice, beach was awesome, it was an all around good time for us. We really don't understand the "food is bad" or "hotel is ugly" type comments. Maybe some people expect everything to be the Ritz-Carlton,... More

1. No top shelf liquors. some local brand made in DR. When I spent money I expect at least something half way decent. 2. Staff are friendly but huge communication problem. Can't speak English. 3. Food pretty much is very bad. Same things different day. Dine in places are not any better not much choices to choose from. 4. No... More

We had a wonderful time at the riu Bambu. Kids club was great. They picked kids up from 10:15-12 and from 3-5. Every night at 8 was the kids show which was the same each night but they loved going. They did have a fashion show one night which was really cute and they had a beach party another night.... More

The property looks good, and the beach views are awesome. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean (and cleaned well everyday). Also, the options for entrainment were plentiful. However, the beach was hardly cleaned (or raked for debris and seaweed). Also our room featured a Super King bed-- which was actually two full sized beds pushed together--funny but not ideal...

A friend & I stayed here last year.....I was extremely disappointed with the room. Very small, 2 queen beds that were pushed together....not ideal. There was no wait staff around the pools or the beach...as we were there, they were changing out the pipes in the building we were in and it was very disgusting. I don't think I'll go... More

Riu Bambu is one of 5 Riu hotels grouped together as one complex. Of the 5 hotels, this has to be the worst - it was very noisy and the staff were nowhere near as good as at other Riu hotels. The bar staff were painfully slow and were more interested in their own conversations or even counting out their... More

Just came back a day ago from our vacation at the Bambu... it was not the best nor was it the worse. Rooms I was told when booking with my agent that the room was for 5 persons. Which was perfect since 3 adults and 2 kids went. When we got there we found out the room hardly fit us... More
