Travelled with my husband and two 10 year olds between February 24 and March 3rd. I was a bit concerned about going as I had read some of the negative comments on here, but was pleased with the resort. Here are my honest impressions: Resort: Check in was quick and organized.

Food - Not a big selection but their is something for everyone. I really did enjoy the omelette station for breakfast, they were delicious!!

but the rest is average. We did have a wonderful time on the beach. Room was average size but the bathroom was small. We couldn't open the door without hitting the toilet. The food choices in the cafeteria never really changed and there is no where else to eat breakfast or lunch. And the food quality was average at best....

We booked an Apple Vacations 5 Apple Square Deal and the Riu Bambu is the resort chosen for us. We were at the Riu Bambu Feb 18-25. The beach at this resort is one of the best in this area. As we walked the beach in either direction some resorts had their chairs so close together you could not put...

We traveled to Riu Bambu in January 2013 for a short birthday trip. We have never been to the Dominican Republic before and booking with Riu appealed to us because of the large compound style resort with five separate Riu's together with it's own shopping, casino and night club. The 24 hour medical available was also a plus. We had...

My boyfriend and I just recently got back from our trip to Punta Cana at the Riu Bambu. We stayed from Feb 19-26. We chose a resort that was advertised as a FIVE STAR.

“Possibly closer to the activities centre so long they don't mind the music. But the walk to the rooms are a great pleasant experience.”
