I read the mixed reviews prior to our holiday at the Riu Bambu and we went there with an open mind. We simply couldn't fault anything. Our room was just a couple of blocks away from the main areas and was always kept so clean by the friendly maids. We had a fantastic easy check in - didn't have to...

Riu Bambu--Punta Cana---April 2013. 14 Wonderful women away for a weeks vacation to celebrate a 50th birthday. We arrived at the resort and were welcomed with a fruity drink, some beautiful weather and a fairly painless check in. Rooms were not ready so our bags were set aside and we were actually taken straight to the buffet for some lunch....

I am here now. Many areas are sub-par, and I'm not super picky. Food and the a la cartes are a let down. Biggest fail is the fact that the disco is closed. When we spoke to management and our sunwing rep, we were told they were bringing in a Dj to play after the show, so we could dance....

My husband and I did a square deal through apple vacations and thought how could you possibly go wrong with a 5star resort...you can and we now know this for future trips.

We stayed in Bambu for 10 nights in Deluxe room and enjoyed every minute of our vacations. This was our 5th visit to Punta Cana, but the first to RIU Bambu (several years ago we stayed in Palace Macao).
