RIU MAMBO VERY VERY VERY EXCELLENT. We stayed at the Hotel Riu Mambo from 15th June - 29th June 2008. It was the best holiday I have had yet by far. Everything about it was perfect (Apart from having to come back home!!!!) HOTEL The hotel is definitely worth it's 4* in my opinion probably more. Out of the 3 Riu hotels there my favorite one was …
... with a side of vegetables. I split my half of a half with the two cats who charmed their way into joining us for dinner. One appeared to be the resident cat who spotted us as a likely mark as soon as we arrived. He strolled over and hoped into my lap as soon as we were seated. I set him down when the chicken was served and he politely (mostly) waited to be served every other bite. The ...

About 25 people staying/connected with Extreme went to Bliss to celebrate Steve's birthday. Steve is Canadian and works in the diamond mine industry. Also in attendance was Chris, a British marine engineer for one of the worlds largest private yachts. Dinner conversation was ...
... of the coolest parts was seeing a cocoa pod picked right from the tree. Hopefully the picture (credit to Ms. Alex Hall) helps in the description, but after the cocoa pod is opened, there are cocoa beans that are covered in a white coating. The white coating can be eaten and is very sweet. Inside the white part is the cocoa bean (which is very bitter) and is roasted to make chocolate. So we finished our tour and ate dinner with the community.

... Lazy Susan. The waiter and all the other wait staff were composed of Dominicans rather than family members of the restaurant owners. That was different. After attempts to write down our orders on separate checks identified by our names, the waiter told us the cook couldn't handle names on the food orders and so he had to come back out and assign us all numbers. It was hilarious. I ordered Chopsuey de res "Beef Chopsuey." Others ordered sweet and sour chicken, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews ClubHotel Riu Mambo Puerto Plata
Great Food Great Service Great Trip !!
arrived home January 21 / 03 from the best vacation we can remember, everything was 125 %from the roomservice to the hotel staff to the always entertaining animation team we had a ball. The food was first class, no fear of bad water all the water used in their kitchen was purified as was the bottled water in the mini fridge in the room, the beach was great and it's a real bonus being able to travel at will between the three amazing facilities ( Mambo, Merengue,and the Bachatta ). Call us crazy but now we're saving to go back next year only this time with our four kids, they're going to love it too! Thank You Carlson Wagonlit Travel for all your assistance and thanks to Skyservice Airlines for delivering us all comfortably and safely.
We have travelled extensively, written reviews and have had the pleasure (and pain) of a number of other "all inclusive" resorts and nothing has compared to the RIU Mambo (Merengue and Bachata for that matter as you have access to them as well. Anway we spent the week of Jan 26th at the Mambo. Everything was first rate. Food, restaurants, service, staff, beach, room everyting. No complaints at all. We would recommend this to our closests friends and relatives.Happy (and cold) in Ontario

On reccomendation from our daughter, after having her honeymoon at the Mambo in November 2001. We booked up a holiday with my daughter and husband for June this year 2002. The holiday was so fantastic we came straight home and rebooked to go back in November 2002. This holiday cannot be faulted in anyway.
Loved and would go back

Hello everyone, my husband and I just returned from our second honeymoon to Riu Mambo in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic (Aug 5-12, 2002) along with 4 of our friends - and we had a GREAT time!
I got married in this hotel last year and it was perfect. You hear all these bad reports but we couldn't fault it. If your an easy going person then this is a wonderful place to get married. You just need to remember that everything is so much more relaxed and that's how you need to be, It's your wedding so enjoy every moment.
The place was great the people were wonderful, we had about 9 people come with us and no-one could fault this hotel at all.
My husband is a fussy eater but there was such a good choice of good food that even he ate loads.
I highly recomend this hotel as somewhere to go. The only downfall i could find was having to listen too the birdy song every night, wow what a fault. Perfect.
