Riu Bambu All Inclusive

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The service was horrible. Staff was an attending, disrespectful, and not at all accommodating. I am fluent in Spanish, so I was able to communicate with them, but I would start out talking to them in English and get nowhere, because their English is nonexistent in most of the cases. The food was not very impressive either. There are plenty of restaurants, but if you didn’t go to dinner right at 6 PM, you would have to wait for hours at a time, do to amount of people there. There was also no resort credit, as the reservation had promised. Very disappointing trip.

We did not like the food in any of the restaurants. We liked our room but didn’t have WiFi for 5 of the eight days we were there. The room phone did not work for seven of the eight days and could not communicate with our friends. We will not stay at this property again.

A highly recommended, because its a beautiful place with amazing sunset!

Everything is perfect!! Very nice people!! Food entertainment everything is nice i am this hotel tree times

This was my first time to Punta Cana and i loved every minute of it. This resort is beautiful and ALL THE STAFF was amazing. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel or the staff. If you want to vacation with your family this is the place to go

Hotel is a bit old but it has everything you need for a pleasant stay. Beach front hotel, great food and very welcoming staff.

The rooms smelled of mildew. The first ground floor room we were provided with had a strong mold smell, enough for us to have breathing trouble within the first 15 minutes. We were provided with another room on the third floor which had a very faint mildew odor but it was much better than the first room.

Staff there was amazing! The resort was never dirty and if needed anything staff was accommodating. The rooms could use a little updates but your never really in there but to sleep. They definitely keep you entertained there!

Customer service and staff was great!!, plenty of activities to do and plenty of food, we love everything

Everything was fine, but different from other resorts you have to pay for your drinks in the disco.

Near to the beach, nice pools, excellent food and shows

I believe that the RIU is the best bang for your buck. This place was amazing for bringing the family for a week getaway.

Staff was great! Loved their service second riu never disappointing

staff is rude, no one speaks english, or even attempts to help you with anything. just a terrible staff overall. just seemed like no one cared about anything and just going through the motions. would never stay there again. just terrible stay.

It was nice, however the hotel needs some updates

I had 3 rooms: Nice staff but towels smelled aweful like mildew, had to tell staff 2 days in row to change the smelly towels back into any of our rooms... Had to involve the supervisor.. Was fine up until last day... Towels smelled AGAIN.. Beds are very hard. Bar pool was disgusting! JUST AWEFUL.. we went with 80 friends. We did go in the pool the first few days.. But by end of week the pool was warm, dsicolored and disgusting things were floating.. This went on most of the last few days.. At that point we went to the beach. Sad because we really could have had a good experience.

Nice hotel excellent staff.First time in Punta Cana on vacation . I definitely would recommend this place .
