The ClubHotel Riu Bambu has three outdoor pools and a kids’ splash spot. There are seven restaurants to weigh up, and bars which range from poolside numbers to evening entertainment venues. Tennis and volleyball courts share the sports mantle with a multi-use pitch, and there are tonnes of watersports to pick from on the beach. Spa treatments are on the cards courtesy of the neighbouring Riu Palace Bavaro.
