I was worried about the transportation picking us up at RIU BAMBU HOTEL. The driver of the van said he could not get past security gate to pick us up. We almost missed our ride but were able to get transportation to the front gate after informing the front desk of our situation. The driver of the van was able to take us to the charter bus. The charter bus took us to the boating dock. The speedboat to the swimming pool was great. The Swimming pool was cold but once you got a couple drinks from the open bar it was nice. The water is beautiful and very blue. Then took the boat to Saona Island where they prepared a Buffett lunch that had, BBQ chicken thighs, fresh fish, spaghetti in a light tomato sauce, fresh fruit, and an open bar. The food was fantastic. Plenty of chairs were set up for tanning. Lots of great places to take pictures. Best part of the excursion is transferring from the speedboat to the party boat. Open bar and plenty of space to lounge or dance! Highly Recommend!!!!!!!

A trip on a speed boat, very fun and safe. A hearty and very good meal on the beach. A longer rest time for swimming, relaxing and exploring the island would have been appreciable given the long return. Having already visited the island of Saona there was a lack of local merchants' stalls. Perhaps it was on another side of the island... A return by catamaran, very sexy dances by the female crew which could "shock" the youngest and the oldest (lol). Kind and available staff who take you.

Out of the few excursions we did whilst visiting Punta Cana - this was by far the best. Very well organised and really friendly tour guides. Everything planned really well and plenty of time to enjoy the island and the surrounding areas. We were lucky enough to see the turtles swimming in the mangroves too which was great!

Very nice trip with amazing party on the boat, open bar and very good food. Soana Island is so beautiful and we really enjoyed. We also saw star fish and stingray

The first boat we were on didn’t have any songs on it. They should have some music, everyone’s there to enjoy and not just sit and watch
