Stayed at this hotel 6-20th April. Our first impression of the hotel was a poor check in, no welcome drink and trying to find a porter to take our luggage to our room was difficult. Room was clean and a fair size with comfortable beds and pillows, bathroom poor standard but a nice shower with loads of hot water. The...

This was my second visit to Riu Bambu and it was just as great as I remembered it. My husband, son and myself really had a wonderful time. The staff, bartenders, waiters, housekeeping and entertainment were the best. I was even surprised with a wonderful souvenir given to me by the Riu for signing up with the Riu Class. The...

My husband and I booked a square deal through Apple Vacations- a guaranteed 5 apple hotel, but we would not find out which hotel until our arrival at the airport. We knew it would be sort of a risk, but it was what we could afford and decided no matter what we would make it great. An honest review of...

My husband and I just returned from a week at the Riu Bambu. We had a FANTASTIC time. While we agree with some of the negative comments on here (details below), we also realize that you can't expect perfection at this price. THE ROOM--we stayed in a deluxe room. It was clean and the bed was nice and huge. Some...

Just returned from 8 days at the Riu Bambu. My son and I had a great time. Our deluxe room was very nice and clean. Our building was one of the newer ones and while the furthest from the beach (5314), was still less than a 5 minute walk. We found the staff to be very friendly at all times....

The first thing that jumps out at you at this hotel is the beach, beautifully, white sands stretch out as far as the eye can see and if you like walking you can for a long while. The rooms are a good size and are kept very clean , the whole hotel is very clean and well kept. The staff...

We had a wonderful vacation at the Riu Bambu. We had a deluxe room - very modern, clean and had everything we needed. Food at the Colonial restaurant and Mama Juana restaurant was delicious. Pools were great; beach was absolutely beautiful! The staff was constantly cleaning and grooming the grounds. Staff was very friendly and tried to get you whatever...

My family of five (3 kids -- 14, 10, 8) just returned from a week at the Bambu. Let me start by saying that many of the complaints in the negative reviews about this place are true. The rooms are a bit outdated. Our family room consisted of a "king" bed that was really 2 twin beds pushed together and...

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Bambu from May 19-26th in a regular room. I'm very surprised at the many negative comments! This was one of the best resorts I have stayed at and also the least expensive that we have paid! For the price we paid, I would go back in a heartbeat. People, let's be realistic...
