Just returned from Riu Bambu. My wife were there for a week. Had a wonderful time. The facility was clean and staff was very friendly! The first room we checked into smelled from mold (we are both allergic to mold) and the staff gave us keys to another room to check. Second room was wonderful. Rooms were clean, however the... More

I stayed at Riu Bambu for 6 days in September 2012 for a family reunion. It was my fourth vacation travel at Dominican Republic and this was the worst experience ever. First of all, the reservation through riu webpage is mediocre. When the confirmation page appears, there is an error message and the next day, I received an email that... More

My family and i stayed at the Riu Bambu for three weeks in August 2012, we found the hotel very clean, the staff all very friendly and the service and food fantastic. The food does get a bit repetitive, but I expected that staying for 3 weeks, but it was always fresh and tasty. The 3 specialist restaurants were ok,... More

When I go to a resort, regardless of the rating, I expect some level of service. The service in the restaurants at best, poor. At both the buffets, as well a the sit down restaurants, there were a ton of wait staff milling around. At no time did they ask if you wanted something to drink until they noticed you... More
