I went to the Riu Bambu with my mom and my best friend in November 2012. When we arrived it was late in the afternoon and we had a chance to walk around the grounds and check out the pool and bar area which we thought was clean, and fun, and we loved the amount of beach chairs near the...

My wife and I visited the Punta Cana region recently (Jan 2013). Our stay at the Riu Bambu was very enjoyable. Our room was very nice and we appreciated the beach area. The all-inclusive nature of the resort made our week memorable. We would definitely return to this hotel.
