We stayed at the Riu Bambu & as such we were permitted access to the Naiboa. For a change we decided to eat luch there on a few occasions. We found the restaurant very clean. The staff were friendly & the food was both good & plentiful. There is a large pool & plenty of space around it. The bar... More

I'm only writing this to maybe help someone thinking of going here to look else where. First thing the food was terrible, they serve the same thing everyday. Which would be fine if the... More

If I would compare it with several 4* hotels in Mexico, this would be at the bottom of the list. Before departure a friend of mine called the hotel and was told from the reception that we can stay at Naiboa and enjoy the privileges of another Riu 5* as many other hotels offers. Very disappointing when I found out... More

I stayed at the Riu Naiboa with Campus Vacations on Spring Break! We had an amazing time! The staff was friendly and did their best to accommodate us! When researching the trip, I read a ton of reviews about the Beach Bar, and it did not disappoint! Beach is beautiful, Ocean is refreshing, and the bar is perfectly located with... More

I'm from Dominican Republic so I know what "All Inclusive" means, having to pay to get into the Disco and to get drinks that is not "All Inclusive", being told that there is an Snack Bar open 24hrs just to...

So to sum up my experience, I was happy my girlfriend didn't get stolen. The maids absolutely stole every nice belonging my friends and I had shoes, speakers, wallets, watches, Cologne... It was terrible. The food was so bad I was very fortunate I took protein bars or I would have starved. Pizza is cheese on bread no sauce, burgers... More

My best friend and I (17 & 18 years old) visited this resort summer of 2014. The experience was absolutely terrible. The food was decent, about a 7 out of 10, however there was no 24 hour food area so after a night of drinking when you're absolutely starving at 1am there was no options seeing as the buffet closes...
