You’ll spend your days sipping cocktails at swim-up bars and sunbathing on the beach when you stay at the ClubHotel Riu Bambu.
Although the ClubHotel Riu Bambu is in a popular part of Punta Cana’s coast, it’s shrouded in 46,000 square metres of tropical gardens, so it feels pretty private.
There’s a beach right on the doorstep of this hotel. And not just any beach. The name of Arena Gorda translates as ‘fat sand’ and it’s a kilometre long.

New Years break
We went to the Riu bambu for the new year, we had a wonderful time, the room was clean and was made up each day nice to have the fridge with soft drinks and beer in and the optics with rum and vodka in if you wanted it replenished every other day. We had no faults with the restaurants we tried them all, the three we liked the best were the large Buffett with waiter service and table cloths with a large variety of food to choose from the others were the Asian and the Italian these did get busy early on. The bars were well attended with staff so not long to wait. The beach was really nice with lots of sun loungers free to use.More
We went to the bambu begining of december there was 5 of us age range 48-67.we worried about the reviews on here but need not have we all had a brill time the food was great the staff very friendly the entertainment works hard you can have a fun time in the swim up bar or there are quieter pools to relax round.the beach is wonderful and the staff come down with trays of drinks free if you dont want to walk 2 mins back to one of the bars,the only problem we found was no cash machine on the site which we think they could do with.the trips are brilliant we will be coing back again this year .the free wifi was goodMore
Great Winter Holiday Resort
The whole family had lots of fun and activities to take part, in and around the resort. We had a great relaxing time in a Sun soaked island resort with great facilities and wonderful service and mouth- watering variety of food. Several restaurants on site to choose from. Clean beaches with the ability to walk over to other hotels on the campus to experience their ambience and comforts including food t some of thee Restaurants. All rooms had working A/C units as well. New Year activities were a laugh.More
Great hotel but 4 out of 8 of us ill
The hotel is beautiful, the beaches were gorgeous...the rooms were clean (more on this later)...food was decent, lacked variety though. Out of the 8 travellers, 4 were very ill with gastro issues. I did notice that the cups in our room were not cleaned or replaced, but just turned back upside down and placed on the tray (very disconcerting after my little one was ill the night before). Spoke to some others on the plane and heard some other travellers were sick as well. Not sure if it was the hotel issues or a gastro flu, but made for a tense vacation!More
I loved every minute of this holiday! I went with my sister and her young son and our friend and her young son. I have just returned home and i can honestly say even though my purse was stolen (i think by a guest), our view was a construction site, there was no coffee provided in your room, and our rep managed to mess up our transfer to the airport; which meant we missed our original return flight which in effect caused work related problems back home, i still loved the actual place. The hotel was very clean, some rooms were older than others, therefore some rooms had modern designs others more tradition mahogany types, mesh doors on balcony torn and a little awkward but still the service, hospitality, poolside and evening entertainment, variety of amazing food and drinks made up for everything. The beach is so beautiful and i definitely plan to return. This hotel is great for friends, families and couples. I must stress how excellent the entertainment is the team do a superb job!More
