Hottest rooms in the planet mean 90% of the time your ac wil be on, who cares about mother nature, huh ? The rooms look bad, the balcony is nice, but the glass door is rusted and the closing mechanism didn't work, power outlets are always behind furniture or a bed, the one in the bathroom was so poorly mounted...

This is a good place if you want to party, drink, and eat a lot! They have all you can eat and all you can drink all day long. The service in my opinion was great and the staff very good. The only thing I didnt like was that it was far from many towns, and historical areas

I had read many reviews about this resort before departing, so I was prepared to expect the worst. So I was pleasantly surprised when I experienced a fun vacation! The workers at the front desk were always helpful and smiling. The Animation (Entertainment) Team provided a lot of entertainment throughout the day, which was mostly at the pool area, as... More

Hotel was in renewal in my stay, a lot of noises all around, the food was not great. Upgraded to Riu Palace Macau, but with more expenses. I belive now the hotel can be better but anyway i stayed in Punta Cana in Bahia Principe and i prefer over Riu. Better rooms and animation!

I've been at Punta Cana by September 2009 in the extinct Riu Taino. I'm writing this review to recommend everybody a trip to Punta Cana and Riu resort would be a good option. Of course if you stay at the Palace or Macao you will have more privileges than by Bambu or Naiboa, but it will depend on your budget.... More

I went to this hotel in June with my Mother. We booked the hotel trough Arke (TUI). I was really surprised! The hotel is very good, especially for the price you pay. Good food, friendly staff, extra service, animation, good hygiene. I really loved my stay there!

So I just got back from my trip. It was 4 of us ages 48, 28, 18, & 18. We all enjoyed ourselves. Let me start by saying if Riu Naiboa got rid of their entertainment team, I would never return. The entertainment was fantastic. A++. They involved the guest and truly are huge assets to the resort. Make sure... More
