The rooms are a little outdated and have an odour to them! A friends safe in their room was broken into and money stolen. . . . don't leave valuables in! Thompson/Fist Choice Reps. . ....

Stayed at Riu Bambu for two nights. Definitely not a good hotel. Rooms are nice and the stocked bar is a plus. Had a really bad experience with the food, and also with the staff being disrespectful to me and my friends. Wrote a letter to management with specific details of the issues we ran into, and a month later...

Okay, this is an extreamely short 10 year review. I stayed at the Malou in 2003, before it was absorbed by the Tiano. The Tiano is now their newest palace. I stayed at the Naiboa in 2005 and 2009.
