Hotel Riu Bambu All Inclusive, Punta Cana
Good3.0 / 5
All-inclusive resort below par
The quality of the food and drinks was below standard for an all-inclusive resort, especially at the so-called specialty restaurants ( Mexican, Italian and Asian). The drinks in the room were all local Dominican brand and most of us who drank more than one of those got a headache. The fitness room was actually part of the resort next to Riu Bambu and at least 15 minutes walk. While the beach and sand were excellent and it was in the high 70s and low 80s when we went from Dec. 30 to Jan. 6th, the daily evening entertainment was not of a high enough quality that anyone would pay for if it was not included in the all all-inclusive price. Besides the announcements were mostly in Spanish and so loud that even when they spoke a few words in English, it was hard to understand what they were saying due to poor sound clarity. The clothes we sent for washing for their laundry service took 48 hours instead of 24 hours at most hotels. The Wifi service was spotty, worked well but its strength kept going up and down like a yo-yo. Overall certainly below par and I would not recommend it.

Better places to stay in dr than this one.
I have stayed in many resorts, in Dominican Republic. The service in this one , Riu bambu, was poor . My rooms a/c did not work , blew around the hot air... Called 2x. Was serviced 2x. Still did not work. When called a third time, no one came. In fact , when I called front desk , I was hung up on, so I gave up. The beach is beautiful, the food was good, but not excellent ,... There are better places to stay in the hotel zone of arena gorda. I will not return here.

Great family getaway
Our family had a fantastic time on our 7 night stay at the Riu Bambu, and overall felt it was a great value. The beach and the buffet were very good. We were pleased with the service and the activities as well. The evening entertainment was not the greatest I've seen, and sometimes the quality and strength of the drinks from the bar was not great. But again, overall, we were very happy with the Bambu and would recommend it to others.
