This is what Caribbean commercials are made off

... we headed to Laguna Gri Gri, for a boat ride through a lagoon and into a Caribbean cove. We saw lush tropical wildlife, swam up to a cave, fed some fish. I felt like a mermaid. I'm not sure what else to say about that. We just jumped off the side of the boat and swam in the crystal clear water surrounded by immense beauty.

We arrived at la Playa Grande, and had lunch on the beach. The coconut drinks were delicious, and the beach was nothing short of postcard ...

Our last day of service

A travel blog entry by smitherland


I'm so tired today that I cAn barely write. After a week filled with back to back work and extra excursions, it all culminated today. Beginning last night we were all admitting to feeling like we missed home, it's comforts, and were weary, uncomfortable, tired, or maybe a bit sick from/ of some aspect of our trip. For me it was a few things. The difficulty in communicating with my family was tough. The inconvenience of the internet and desire to fully experience the trip ...

Rural Work Retreat

... water for the community.

We arrived on Friday and got assigned to a temporary host family that we would stay with for the weekend. After getting settled, we made the 10 minute hike to our work-site that was situated, essentially, in the middle of the woods. Or jungle. Someone help me here...when does the woods become the jungle? I think it was just the woods. The peace corps volunteers showed us a natural watershed from the mountain that was depositing a ...

... into letting us stay out until 2, so the evening starting off on a positive note. The whole time we were at the bar I was having a blast. Every time we go out, someone normally gets completely wasted and can’t handle their alcohol, but last night was different. Ellen and I split 3 fish bowls, which is a lot of alcohol, but I felt good all night and woke up feeling well rested for a change. I’ve pretty much done absolutely nothing all day ...

Voyage to the North

... wear white - including the guests. In Western culture, we would never normally wear white, as it would take away from the bride, but the standard here is to wear white to weddings - which I did not, as white is a very dangerous colour for many of you know, I am extremely accident-prone! Also as per Dominican tradition, the wedding itself was no more than 10 minutes long, and it was so windy that no one could hear what was being said in the ...

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.

First Rate


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

Excellent hotel and staff


i have been 2 the riu mambo twice once in 2001 and i went in may 2002 i was there for my birthday and we had a great time it must be good as i am going back for 3rd time this

Riu Mambo Resort


January 19, 2003

Nice hotel, very average food


I went to the Riu Mambo from January 1 to 8, 2002.

Simply the best


I have been there January 2000. It was great. if I could, I would go there immediately again. Especially the animation-team and the great choice of meals is worth to go there again. CU Mambo

Simply the Best


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


i went to the rio mambo last christmas. I was with my parents( i am only 12) There is so much to do and fun for all the family. we stayed for 2 weeks and would have loved to stay longer. i would strongly recommend it. the food is fab and the workers are to. the kids will love it and to get then out of you hands there is a kids club. i hope this was helpful!

The Riu Mambo is Fun and Relaxing!!


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.
