We stayed at the Riu Naiboa from the 21st of June 2014 to the 6th of July, as you might see we are half way through the holiday and I thought I should let everyone know that who is thinking of staying at this hotel, we stayed at the hotel 7 years ago for our honeymoon and it was excellent,... 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...

If you're expecting first class top notch everything because this is a hotel under the Riu chain - DONT! The hotel was nice, food was nice although slightly repetitive, as with any all inclusive buffet. Everything is simple and standard - but clean and nice. Lovely location and setting, staff are very friendly and helpful and couldnt do enough for... More

This is the oldest thus bottom end of the Riu complex of punta cana but the beach makes up for all its shortcomings which to be honest really did not effect our stay. Im not... More

Nice hotel, not new, rooms even luxury ones aren't bespoke, service is very "light" too. Visitors are only couples and families, mainly French people, Canadian, locals and Russians. Swiming pool With bar is not so clean too I saw more than I expected inside)) BUT food, drinks and sand is the best I ever saw, includind luxury Baly hotels.

I have stayed at a number of all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean and this one is by far a combination of every flaw that could possibly ever exist with a resort. I traveled with a group of friends and was not in charge of planning the trip. We booked through a AAA travel agent who originally informed us... More
