We just got back from Riu Bambu (12th March - 27th March) It was a lovely hotel but too many people, no adult pool kids were everywhere. If you want to relax you got a bit of peace on the beach for a couple of hour. I like to relax round a pool but it was very busy and noisy...

We just returned from the Bambu (March 23-30) and we had an amazing time! I would give a 5 plus star for the Beach alone, but food was hit or miss (3 star quality) so I averaged it to a 4...People who come here to expect a complete 5 star hotel would be thrilled with the beach, but probably not...

Very disappointed with the Riu Bambu. The rooms weren't nice at all. They have two full beds pushed together making one large bed that was very uncomfortable. The entertainment was disappointing as well. The buffet food wasn't good. The restaurants were good but in order to make a reservation for that evening you have to walk down to the lobby...

Myself and my boyfriend just returned from 7 days at the Riu Bambu and we loved it. We did some research before booking anything and again and again this resort seemed like the place to go.

Overall, a good hotel for an all-inclusive family beach vacation for the Christmas season. However, it failed to qualify for any star rating, as it featured an unbelievable fault. The reason I say this is that both the main restaurant and the specialty served fake wine, possibly produced out of concentrate mixed in utility quality water. Totally undrinkable and generally...
