We held my daughters wedding here it was absolutely first class. The main benefit was we had a holiday for two weeks all inclusive as well as a wedding at a fraction of the cost in UK. The hotel is set in Paradise with a tree lined beach and shoreline. The hotel is spotless, comfortable and offers exemplary service. The...

Just returned from 2 week holiday - it was brilliant. Food to suit everyone and lots of it. Beer might not be the best but definately drinkable. Staff could not be more helpful and pleasant. If you get a chance to go on 'The jungle trip' with George of the Jungle its well worth it. It was educational, fun and...

Food was good, service was incredible...made friends with majority of the staff. Rooms were clean, beach was beautiful...area was nice, club pacha I believe was fun as well...went with my dad last month, going with my best friend in August for my birthday to the exact same hotel. Definitely worth going back to! :-)

The Riu Bambu was perfect. A stones through to the best beach I've seen. Not totally keen on the pools as too small for number of people however they are busy building a new one by the looks of it. Bedrooms were spotless - thanks Delli! Food was good, the reservations are well worth getting up for - Italian best...

Stayed here from 14th-28th June, and thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The grounds are clean as are the rooms; pretty basic but everything needed. Mini bar stocked twice daily, but more if you just ask. Staff work hard all day, every day, one negative is that some bar staff do favour Spanish speakers over other Nationalities. Food is good, not excellent,...
