What's to Love

Part of the Riu Punta Cana complex, guests enjoy an unbelievable amount of variety through exchange privileges with the sister resorts at most restaurants and bars in the complex.

 

What We'd Change

All of the gift shops at the resort are a bit expensive. So pack extra batteries for the camera, sunscreen and other essentials to save your pennies for the spa.

 

Why You Should Go

Riu Bambu is a Dominican Republic fun factory. It's a big, exciting, kid-friendly complex with plenty of places to chill out by yourself when needed, too.

Hotel Description

Riu Bambu in Punta Cana: Choose Your Own All-Inclusive Adventure

Pack a bag and jet-set your way to the all-inclusive, bungalow-style resort Riu Bambu in Punta Cana. Set on the luminous shores of Punta Cana's Arena Gordo Beach, Riu Bambu is a laid-back Punta Cana charmer, perfect for families, singles and couples alike. This resort is home to Riu's "Service with Heart" mantra, brought to life by the fantastic staff at Eternal Spa. This full-service spa, complete with a beauty salon and a hairstylist, offers an array of original relaxation treatments designed to make every day aches a distant memory.

Planted soundly on the legendary palm tree-shaded sands and clear waters of Arena Gordo Beach, the resort gives guests plenty of picturesque space on the soft sands to lie back and enjoy the view. Dedicated pool-dwellers find their solace at one of two pools at Riu Bambu, including one with a swim-up bar, an adjoining Jacuzzi and a children's pool. Complimentary sun loungers, towels and parasols are available on the vast sun terrace.

And since evenly toasting both sides is bound to work up an appetite, the dedicated chefs at the resort's restaurants are always cooking up something fresh at any one of four restaurants. From the classic American buffet at Colonial to the poolside grilled steak at Mama Juanas, guests have no excuse when it comes to finding fuel to party day and night. And speaking of the nights, we recommend a cocktail at the 24-hour Sports Bar, or on La Plaza's elegant terrace.

Rest and relaxation await in your Junior Suite, which boasts a separate living room, an endless mini bar and liquor dispenser and a private terrace or balcony. And sleep you should, because tomorrow's list of activities could include a serious contest of table tennis or volleyball, a night game of tennis on one of the two floodlit courts, a game of water polo or a complimentary sailing expedition. Enjoy those sweet dreams of another day in paradise!
