Rooms were okay, Pools were clean, played vollyball in the water every day. Resturant was clean but food a little bit repetitive (although there was somthing for eveyone). Beaches were amazing with many water sports...

I just returned from the Riu Bambu yesterday after booking a quick four day long weekend trip and I am so happy that I wasn't there more then 3 nights.

When we booked our tickets for this trip we were under the assumption that it was a 5 star. Needless to say when we arrived we found it wasn't. There are no rooms on the beach. We were hungry because no food is offered even on the 5-6 hour flight so we went to the one restaurant that was open...

The all inclusive package was great, even with some optics and soft drinks in our room. The location was beautiful, too. The only downside was sometimes there were traders in the lobby who would try to make...
