While there are some renovations going on in the resort, they did not affect us at all. Actually it had an advantage that the resort built for about 650 rooms had only about 500 used. So with the resort being "full" there was always enough space in the restaurants and on the beach, no towel shortage, lots of places in...

The room doesn't clean including the bath smell very bad. Staff not friendly, most of them, they just want tips they don't enjoy what they're doing. For staying 7 days, including flight don't pay more then 1000USD.

I vacationed here beginning of March 2017 with friends and we really enjoyed our stay here, none of us had any major complaints. This was a girls' vacation and we shared rooms (2 per room). The rooms where furnished with 2 double beds which were right snug beside each other so you must be comfortable with who you are sharing...

Had the pleasure of spending 2 wonderful weeks at Riu Bambu with a group of 21 people! I have to say and acknowledge the very high standard of this place. The staff were incredibly helpful and caring in every area! Upon arrival we got checked in very fast. Had to change one of the rooms closer to the front and...

I just came back from a family vacation with my parents, my husband and my 2 nieces (10 and 12 years old). We booked this hotel because the price was right for all the amenities it offers. The ClubHotel Riu Bambu certainly qualifies as a 5-star for the quantity of amenities/services but severely lacks in the quality department. Everything is...

Lots of renovation going on, and there were little nitpicky things that weren't perfect, but all in all a great stay and a terrific value. Best of all was the beach. We always had plenty of room to spread out, which was not the case at many of the more expensive resorts we walked past every day. We could always...

After reading the reviews I was a little scared, but after a week there i'm not sure why all the negative reviews. We took a family vacation with our girls ages 13 and 11 there for the first time. It's a really nice resort for the money you pay. The resort itself is very clean. The workers are nice and...
