Lovely place with fabulous beaches that stretch for miles. Weather very good until last couple of days then rain and cloud but hey ho in the tropics what do you expect. Rooms are all spread out over quite a large area so make sure to ask for one near to reception if you have mobility problems. Our room had supposedly...

Rius never disappoint. 25 min bus ride to resort, beautiful beach front property. Entertainment crew was great! AJ was our favourite, very welcoming and fun. We had a deluxe room which was great, just near the construction that is going on. Beach was beautiful and main pool was always a great time. Would definitely go back!

Traveled on Feb 3rd with Sunwing with a group of 23 for my daughter's wedding on Feb 7th. My wife and I had stayed there before as had my daughter. We loved it then and loved it this time too! This resort lacks for nothing and is, of course, right on the best beach in The Caribbean. Even if your...

The rooms are clean, and the maid service is superb. The grounds are spotless. Entertainment is very good and the beach is beautiful. We will be going back again next year and staying at the same hotel. We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary.

I have been to a few Rui properties over the past few years and find they are slightly over rated for the price they charge. the Bambu is a resort in the middle of other Rui properties - the sister resort that Bambu visitors are permitted to use is about a 5 minute walk away - careful going through the...

This was my first time to the Dominican Republic, this resort was bigger, better and all around greater than I could have ever imagined. The pools were nice, the swim up bar was really neat and the bar tenders were great. The beach was fantastic, you could walk for miles in either direction and it was beautiful. The food at...

Riu is what you make it !!! Me and my wife loved our time here and are very grateful for the trip... everyone's negative reviews have to do with first world problems.... stop being so needy and so delicate... if you don't like it spend an extra 3 grand and stay somewhere else. The resort staff was all so friendly...

My husband and I booked this trip with Apple Vacations. This resort was part of the 5-square deal, where you pay the discounted rate with airfare and resort fee bundled and then you find out at your departure airport which resort you will be residing at for the next seven days. For us, it was the RIU Bambu. [Being that...

To start my review I just want to preface that I have stayed at several 5 star all inclusive hotels and I like to think that generally my husband and I are not that picky. When I read these reviews, I like to read the poor ones to see if the cons are all issues that don't bother me. I'll...
