• 600m to Caribbean Street

You’re toe-to-toe with one of the Dominican Republic’s trademark scoops of butterscotch sand. Gangly palms poke up between the gardens and the shoreline, and the watersports offering is on the money.

Pools

There are five pools at this hotel. They’re not your run of the mill pools either. Two have got a swim-up bar with in-water tables and stools.

Food & Drink

In addition to the main buffet restaurant, this hotel flaunts six speciality eateries.

This place has an Italian eatery with a speciality pizza menu, plus there are a further two restaurants - the Kulinarium, and a Spanish themed one.

Entertainment

You can watch a show every day when you stay at this hotel. The hotel has a lively atmosphere and the line-up is loaded with tribute shows and folk performances.

The hotel’s nightclub is a 5-minute walk away from the hotel, entry is included, but drinks are a little extra. The dance floor is surrounded by podiums.

Sports & Activities

The sea is the setting for loads of the hotel’s activities. There’s a reef not far from the shore and a shipwreck, which make for great snorkelling.

Facility Overview

The Riu Bambu packs in seven restaurants, six bars, five pools, and two dipping spots for kids. There's lots of after-dinner entertainment to get your hands on, too – the nightclub's the star of the show.

Practise your serve on one of the tennis courts, there are four courts in the resort, and one court in the hotel, or start small with a few rounds on the table tennis table. The RiuLand kids’ club puts on colouring, TV time and team games.

Health & Beauty

You can hop across to the Renova Spa at the nearby Riu Palace Bavaro for a treatment*, and there's a steam bath.

The gym’s kitted out with cardio and weights machines.
