First of all, this Riu is rated a 5 to 4.5 star depending on the travel site you visit. I personally think it should be rated no higher than a 3.5. The beach is a huge factor for my husband and I, and its not much of a beach, palm trees and fruit trees all around the beach area, so... More

I'll make this simple. Room: fairly clean, beds not comfortable; fridge stocked everyday with water bottles, beer, and pepsi. Food: we got sick every night after eating; a lot of vegetarian options, limited lactose free options, food similar everyday not a huge variety; we got sick and stuck to rice and veggies. Pool: pools are big and clean; takes at... More

While this resort is nice I had a bad experience with a theft from my room. An item I had purchased was removed from my room by the maid. The resort management could care less and the same with head office. They implied that I was lying to them about it. If I was out to scam a resort I... More

No room service made it difficult to find food late in the evening. The food in the main restaurant was so repetitive and bland. We couldnt get reservations at any of the restaurants. I read the reviews and tried to get reservations on the day we arrived. The main dining room was very difficult to find a seat. Remember in... More

We stayed from Feb. 19-26. The hotel and grounds were very clean. The food was very good. All the people who worked there were very friendly. Our toilet was leaking half way through the week and we called reception and someone came within 20 mins to fix it. We booked a taxi and had our own tour guide take us... More

Just returned and enjoyed my break away from the snow and cold. My daughter and I flew out of Halifax and met my sister and sister in law who flew from Toronto. I had emailed the hotel to arrange for rooms close to each other and on the second floor. We did get rooms a few doors away from each... More

My fiance and I visited this hotel from February 20th-24th. We went there expecting a 3-star hotel for the price they were charging. We didn't go expecting 5-stars and we didn't get 5-stars. Beware of what you eat: For starters, I got food poisoning mid-trip. I believe it was from the cold salmon that they were serving near the salad... More
