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

I have an extreme intolerance to gluten and dairy which made me very nervous to travel to a location where English isn't the language. On the first night the kitchen manager introduced me to Yokander, and from that point on I was in great hands. Yokander was able to show me what I could eat at each meal (I don't... More

The hotel is neat and has good facilities but it is quite small compared to other hotels around. Good food but the buffet becomes repetitive after a couple meals, it is a standard all inclusive but it might be worth paying a bit more and staying in one of the other Riu hotels next to it The shows however are...
