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. The food was good but not great, some was too unusual to eat but there are many standard items to choose from. The staff could not be friendlier, the atmosphere is great, the views are stunning, everyone is out to have...

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.

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago but thought I would give you a heads up. No matter what the bad reviews say, this is the best 5 star for the price we've ever been to. Lot of Europeans and very little locals on the resort. Hey, my parents were European and they were picky so that's a...

We just returned from a Mon - Fri vacation at Riu Bambu in Punta Cana( Apr 7, 2012). This was our first international trip with our daughters (15 & 17). Our travel agent recommended this property. The beach, the Caribbean view, and the grounds are simply beautiful. Having walked the beachfront past the Iberostar<?> resort in one direction (South) and...

We just got back from the Riu Bambu and only have one minor complaint. Same food at the buffet every day!!! We were there with an 8 year old and a 3 year old. We were in building 20 which was close to everything. Just far enough that the noise from the shows at night didn't bother us. The staff...

The guests were approximately 70% European, I guess due to the fact that there were non-stop flights from Russia and Germany. You will see a lot of men wearing Speedos and women wearing nothing on top (although many probably should have!) The beach and the weather there can't be beat, not too hot and not too cold. We had no...

Nice hotel-the rooms where ok-always clean, food was good, entertainment was ok-animation team-Blue Genie was great. Our Sunwing rep.-flash was great-always remembered who we were all week and very informative. The Bambu has one of the nicest spots on this beach, rooms are centered around all activities-easy to get around. Pillows are flat as pancakes but I would return to...

Ok...so I use the reviews on tripadvisor quite frequently to assess a hotel. When you read a review, you have to understand from what perspective it was written. So here is my perspective- I am pretty well traveled and I am used to staying in a variety of locations from 5 star resorts and hotels down to hostels. I traveled...
