We stayed at Riu Bambu in July 2011, we had been to Mexico in April with Riu, so decided to try another one. We had a lovely time and met some lovely people. The hotel wasn't as good as the one in Mexico, but was still very nice. The staff were very friendly and good fun especically Kathy she always...

We have just returned from the Riu Bambo, Dominican Republic relaxed and chilled. It had been 5 years since we were last on the Island, albeit the North end, and 3 years since we had stayed in a Riu. Im pleased to report that the Riu high standards still remain although allot of the staff gave the impression that they...

Read many reviews before going here and found most to be inacurate. The hotel was clean and the food was not fancy but good. I took my 17 year old nicece here for spring break in April 2012. The hotel was full of families with various ages of children. We ate at the main restaurant every night while we were...

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. I stayed at the Bambu in 2011. I will be going back next year for my 25th. wedding anniversary. Let's just...

We are a family of 5 who stayed April 1-8th, 2012. It was our first time traveling with our 7 month old, so we were very hesitant based on other reviews of the resort. Our check in and transfer from the airport was quick, easy, smooth and they had a welcome drink ready and waiting. Bell boy took our luggage...

Riu Bambu: The first question that you may want me to answer is: Would you go back again? the answer is a definite YES! One has to remember that 5 star, when it comes to an all-inclusive is probably a solid 4 star in North America (but there are many more amenities to take into consideration). The rooms: Although I...

We went on a charter flight so no layover which was great, transportation to the hotel, everything all inclusive.

I had a fine time here, the food was good except for the steakhouse, the beer was okay but it wasnt Presidente it is Brahma. The entertainers were fun and friendly especially "blue genie". Rooms were clean but the beds are horrible old and hard. It wasn't a Ritz but it was worth what i paid.
