This resort is probably 2.5-3 star depending on the room you get. If you get an older run down room you will enjoy the gigantic cockroaches and the caved in mattresses, but you'll be better off in a newer room but they are far by the back road. Anyways because of the horrific food this is barely a 3 star...

We have just returned from the Riu Bambu and can honestly say this is definitely not a 4* let alone a 5* (more like a 3*). We stayed in Morocco at a Riu last year which was 4* and it was sooooo much better in so many ways. The Bambu seems confused on to who it is catering for: 18-30...
