Let me start this review by saying, I am not a world traveler. I have been to Punta Cana 3 times. I have stayed in different resorts so that I can "see it all". Overall the resort is OK. I was a bit disappointed in a few things. Let's start with check in. Fanastic. Went smooth and they understood it...

Overall this was a great trip. The resort is fine but starting to show its age. The room was clean but definitely not up to a four or five star standard. And was not the family room we thought we were getting. Beds were comfortable but my 12 year old son had to sleep on a pullout all week. Fortunately...

Flash and Rudy and Julio made this hotel worthwhile. The country adventure trip was a great day and a realistic look into Dominican life. The swim with the stingray tour was a bit exaggerated in the details but worth the price as a do once event. Chano the guide was fantastic. All service providers here are warm, helpful and knowledgable....

Family of 6 stayed at Riu Bambu, Punta Cana March 1-8. I have traveled to Jamaica and Dominican Republic multiple times a year for the past 10 years. The majority of the time I stay at a Riu property and have never been disapointed until this trip. I will rethink my choice of resort in the future because of this...

As mentioned in other reviews the pool isn't large but honestly there was plenty of room. The people that stayed there were all friendly so if you're interested in meeting new people and making some friends this is the place to go. The pool being smaller made it that much easier to meet people. We were sharing the tables in...

This was my first all inclusive trip so I don't have anything to compare to... however, the resort was clean, the staff was ultra nice and helpful, the service was spot on, and the beach was close (didn't have to walk very far or take a tram). I went with two other friends, we all shared a room and it...

When we arrived at the Riu Bambu on February 18, 2012, we were told that we didn't have a room. They had overbooked approximately 19 rooms. I was shocked as I'd never heard of such a thing happening. We travel every winter to Mexico, Jamaica, and this year to the Dominican Republic. We were told that they were going to...

Our stay here was our 7th in the Dominican but the first to this resort. Our airport pick up went surprisingly smoothly.
