Had a very good first week felt invisible at times if you tip you get service. 2nd week spring breakers arrived 600 of them mostly under 21 not old enough for alcohol at home but at riu bambu they had a ball! No one was looking out for them. They took over the hotel and the bar pool. Shots from 9am thru to oblivion . They were loud brash drunk falling into the pool banging their heads falling over and the staff still gave them more alcohol the animation team seemed to encourage them the security watched as they too drank and walked away this was so uncomfortable. We went with Thomson and reported it to the rep who said they had much right to enjoy the facilities as everyone else so uncomfortable to watch. In the end we got moved to the punta Cana palace which was very nice the day we left Bambu a spring breaker died jumping in the pool as he hit his head jumping into the pool in shallow water - so upsetting to hear the riu bambu should be utterly ashamed allowing this to get so out of hand when we were all complaining they should have acted sooner - awful place pay more and go elsewhere.
