We recently returned from a 10-night stay at RIU Bambu and found it to be very nice. We have stayed at RIU resorts in Jamaica and Playa del Carmen and this was very much the same. Our room was newer and we had free wifi but was next to the service drive so it was very noisy with traffic. The...

My fiance and I went to the Bambu in 2010. This was our first trip at an all inclusive hotel. Since then we have travelled to several other places and so now I feel is the perfect time to write about our experience. We absolutely loved the hotel when we stayed there. The resort was smaller in scale than some...

We arrived Jan 12 for a one week stay. As stated in other reviews, the best part is the beach. We were assigned to building 50. It is a three story building close to the edge of the property near the road, (Bus and Truck noise with the slider open) and the Palace Macao. It is a 5-10 minute walk...

we left for our trip on Jan 7 -14. We were lucky cause we got one of the rooms in the new buildings (built 1 month prior) however we heard a lot of complaints from visitors regarding the older rooms. The food was nothing to run home and tell mom about. If you were not up at 7 am to...

Beautiful part of a very long beach. Lazy stuff, except animators, who are working hard for all the days and evenings. Food is average, rooms not as clean and comfortable as you wish them to be. You can use free WIFI at the lobby but the speed is very low. Watch out for the bartenders - they do drinks in...

I would like to start off by saying that I wouldn't really give this resort a two star, it would actually be a 2.5 star that I would kindly bestow on this disappointment. This was actually the most cost efficient resort that I found at the time, and I thought that Quality went along with the Rui name, and I...

“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.”
