Take it easy on a beachside sunlounger or get your heart racing with watersports – the choice is yours at the Riu Bambu. The hotel’s also got three pools winding through its grounds – including one with a swim-up bar – and a kids’ splash pool with mini waterslides. Inside, meanwhile, the whole place has been given a recent nip-tuck, including the bedrooms. What it means is you've now got swish new furniture and bigger TVs. And as for location, you're just a ten-minute walk to Caribbean Street.

Poor Customer Service
Service staff seems to prefer saying "no" rather than accommodating guests. My room's ground patio door was unlocked 3 days in a row and once our entry door open from cleaning! The male staff flirts heavily making it uncomfortable. Pool closes at 6pm and the towel men will reprimand you if you dont return them by 5:30. Cuisine poor, Room subpar. The beach was the nicest part.More

I guess you can't compare apples with stars....
We booked the 5 Apple Square Deal and were told we were guaranteed a resort that was 5-apples(their version of 5-stars)- well I guess you get what you pay for...this was 3 stars at best! Everything was just mediocre except for the pools and beach and luckily the weather! Who ever heard of a 5-star resort only having one kind of beer and that was draught light beer ! Service was lacking - had to stop at desk every day to request extra towels and to restock the beer - which they were out of for two days - and then it was rationed 2 at a time! Food was average - everything tasted the same...only good meal of the day was breakfast. Steak house and Italian restaurant were just slightly better. Room was clean, but outdated with bedspread as thin as the sheets and no blanket available. Room had 2 double beds pushed together. Staff was not friendly or helpful, except for few exceptions...I would not recommend this to anyone unless price was their only criteria.More

Came back February 2014 from a two week stay, Awesome holiday great value money, we could not fault any of the hotel. Food was outstanding, must try the steak house and the Italian restaurant. Main restaurant had a great selection of food and if your a fish lover you will not be disappointed. Room was modern and kept clean every day by the maids to a very high standard, I would recommend to get a king size suit as the standard rooms are quite dated. Entertainment was good but finished quite early 12pm. if you wanted to go on late the bar, and disco was open till late as you wanted. Only one complaint on the whole holiday would be the entertainment team manager JACKSON, he was only socailable and friendly to single young sexy woman. Any one else he would not even say hi or even crack a smile :(More

Fun glad we tried it!
We had a wonderful time as we always do on vacation. We just felt that we stayed at better resorts where the people are more friendlier towards you. We loved the Mexican restaurant. Def try mamajuana its their drink! The best part about this trip is we made some wonderful friends and our friend proposed which was pretty awesome. All in all as cheap as a trip this was it was well worth the money and I spent my birthday on a beach. The beach massages are to die for! You will be happy.More

Nice Resort for the Price
First thing, check-in was a breeze. The room was clean and the food was fair at the buffet. They seemed to have a bacon shortage for a few days at breakfast. Don't know why. The ala carte restaurant for steak was the best of the 3 we tried. The drinks were ok. Sometimes strong and sometimes it seemed like they were holding back on the booze. It depended on the bartender and how much you tipped. Our group always tips so most of the bartenders see that and mix your drinks with better booze. Unfortunately, they seemed to be short on wait staff. You could relax around the pool all day and never have a person ask you, if you wanted a drink. Same with the restaurants. Rarely did a waiter get you a table and then get you your coffee. We had 6 people in our group and we normally had to find our own table and then someone would eventually get you coffee. We've stayed at other RIU's and had better service. The beach was very nice with soft sand and the ocean wasn't really cold. The pool at the swim-up bar was nice, but a little deep for carrying a drink around. To be safe, once you got your drink, you headed for the side of the pool, where it wasn't as deep, and talked with your friends and finished your drink. All in all this is a nice resort with well kept grounds, decent food, a courteous staff, and not so bad drinks. Not one of the best we've stayed at, but not one of the worst, also. Worth the money we paid for a square deal with Apple.More
