There was nothing enjoyable abput this resort. Infact it was the worst hotel ive ever been to. From the beginning the staff would not help us with anything including getting all our suitcases up to the srcond floor. The minibar was supposed to be freshed every day and was not done once while we were there even aftwr i asked everyday. The room was absolutely filthy. There was black mold all over the room. My friend and i both came home, we left 3 days early because we both got bronchitis from the mold. On top of that there was an infestation of bugs in our rooms. I was bitten so bad i had to see another dr when i got home to be treated for that. The food was inedible and there was no room service at all as advertised.

I loved the staff who were all very welcoming with the exception of the Spa receptionist whose at the front lobby, very rude and obnoxious; I actually cancelled 2 massages her attitude was horrendous. You really need to have someone who wants to be there to and has people skills, not everyone is meant to work with customers. Just awful! She was rude, incompetent, with no manners.

The beach sand and location are great! For the bargain price we paid, we were happy with most everything. The Palm Beach restaurant is the only one you have to get a ticket for to enter and they were not there an hour before like they were suppose to be. From talking to others who stayed elsewhere, this hotel does not have drink service like a higher-end hotel does. You have to go to the bars to get your own drinks everywhere. Overall, enjoyed the parties, shoes, food, location and beach.

The food was very plain, and 3 out of 5 people traveling us got sick with bathroom issues for at least 5 days. Avoid fruits and vegetables. The evening dining does not take reservations, lots of buffets.

Dear Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. As it is one of our priorities to ensure that we give an outstanding service and provide an enjoyable experience to all of our guests, we are truly sorry we did not fully live up to the standards you expected and that our cuisine did not reach your taste and you think you had contracted some stomach issues during your stay. We will share your comments for the consideration of the appropriate department as we really hope that perhaps you will give us another chance to host you soon again. We wish you all the best, Hotel Riu Bambu Online Reputation Manager
