Amazing stay at RIU Jambo
RIU Jambo is a terrific hotel and all inclusive resort. It is a physically beautiful place. The staff is great. Check in was easy wit the pre-check in process. The room was modern and very comfortable. We were given an early check in which was greatly appreciated. The food was excellent for all meals. The beach is perfect and one of the few that is not impacted by the wide tidal range on the island. It is an hour and one half from the airport but well worth the trip. Cab fare was not bad . There was nice entertainment and dancing. The clientele was very international and interesting to meet. Even enjoyed the water aerobics program daily to work off some of the food.

Nice
The place is maravellous, Nice view, room clean and modern. The beach is really something. Very good buffet. Nice activities. Poor service at reception since very very very slow. However, you can feel that it is an island of confort in the mids of dire poverty. Outside, even the road in front of the hotel is in terrible condition.

Nice hotel as it’s new. You can only use the specialty restaurants, three of them once per week for each restaurant and that’s if you can manage to book them.
