Along with a few pros about this resort, there are unfortunately more cons. I traveled to Punta Cana for the first time with friends and family. There were seven people in our party, five of which have never been on a tropical all-inclusive vacation before. Upon entering the Riu Bambu resort, everything seemed in place. Beautiful lobby, great Caribbean feel,...

This resort was very nice, the rooms clean and the staff friendly. The down side was that many on the staff didnt speak english so sometimes it was a challenge to communicate. Drinks were watered down and often had ask for alcohol to be put in drinks. Prenty to do to keep busy on the resort and enjoyed the entertainment...

My girlfriend and I had a 2 week Easter break here March/April 2013. We chose Riu because we'd stayed in a Riu resort in Cancún, Mexico last year and loved it. Although the resort is not at the same level as the one in Cancún, it still had all the Riu features we've come to expect. The hotel has a...
