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.

I'm sad to say that I came home with bed bug bites! The beach was full of seaweed, which is to be expected but why...
