Cool property I was just at, a little throwback feel. Kinda felt old, but still had the presence of a quality hotel. The Bambu is apart of 4 other resorts, stayed at The Riu Naiboa in 2015. The Naibao has better rooms, matter of fact. Naibao's rooms are pretty comparable to the new Riu Republica's rooms. (That's where the comparisons...

This hotel is one of four Riu hotels aligned along the beach at Bavaro, Punta Cana. The clientele at the Bambu seems predominantly, if not exclusively, the all inclusive package holiday tourist. It was nice to have a mix of American, Canadian, English, Spanish, Dutch, German and Eastern European guests rather than just one dominant nationality. When I first arrived...

We visited RIU Bambu from March 12th to March 18th. We loved our time here and can't wait to return. We were in a Jr. Suite (107), which was located steps away from the pools, beach, restaurants and Reception. Reception is the center point for everything. We swam in the ocean everyday, with no worries. It's beautiful! No need for...

Excellent resort, first resort I'm planning on returning too! Food is the best I've had and some food taste better then I can get back in Canada. Drinks are really good and strong so it don't take much to get drunk but are very tasty. Wifi is available in almost every common area and if you want wifi in your...

We have been at this resort in January this year, and it was absolutely lovely to be there for 2 weeks. All the staff friendly and there for you, for anything you needed. We had a great time being there and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a warm and nice holiday.

Excellent holiday at the Riu Bambu. My partner and I had a well needed relaxing week at the Bambu. Room 3210 was lovely, clean, functional and beds so comfortable. Mini bar and optics were a very nice added extra. Exceptional service from all the staff. Always happy to help with big smiles too. Beach was absolutely stunning with palm trees...
