Staff was very helpfull

Posted Nov 16, 2014
The staff are very nice, and very helpfull. Most staff speak english spanish and french so that was nice to know. The food in the buffet is great , ranging from pizza to seafood and all types of fruits and drinks. This hotel is more for family and young adults to have fun. Out of all the Hotel Riu this one is where the fun is at. Also the pool and the beach are literaly 20 steps away. Drinks are very good , you dont have to tip, buy if someone is giving you good service , hey why not reward someone for there hardwork. Overall i will be coming back here and booking over and over.

Ok hotel

Posted Nov 9, 2014
The service was great , very nice people but the food was terrible, I had to go out of the resort and buy food when I had all-inclusive. The same food outside the resort taste way better than inside resort. I spent money on food when the resort is all inclusive, that really sucks.

Horrible hotel - dirty & outdated

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything - facilities, food, service, cleanliness.
Riu Bambu hotel in Punta Cana was terrible. The hotel was very dirty, the facilities were old, the room was outdate with terrible mattress, the food was horrible. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. We checked out of this hotel on the next morning and moved to another hotel.

DISAPPOINTED VACATION

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: N/A
Cons: N/A
Location: N/A
Our stay at the RIU BAMBU was disappointing. First we entered our rooms to find it hot and insects on the floor, furniture and walls. The beds were very uncomfortable and the air conditioning never cooled off the room. The room also had a certain stench of mold that never went away., ALL had some sort of stomach and digestive issue due to the food and/or water, which lasted for days upon our return home. We asked numerous times to the staff if the water was filtered and they all said it was. The English communication from the staff was poor. We thought the food and cocktails tasted terrible. We again were disappointed with our visit to the RIU BAMBU. We will not be returning or recommending this hotel. We feel that we wasted our hard earned money on this once in a lifetime vacation.
