The worst experience ever. The rooms were so dirty - dust, hand prints and stains were not cleaned in months. Few hairs inside the fridge. It looks like they only change the sheets between the check ins. Furnishings are dated. I changed my 1st room, but same story with the second, except add a strong dumpster/swap smell from the balcony... More

Stayed at the Naiboa for 10 days and had a great time. My review is based on my experience at the resort and not the airline, travel operator, airport experience etc. The weather was great, the food was very good, the service excellent and so was the entertainment. We were able to stay experience the Riu Palace Macao and the... More

Good cleaning of the room, good animation, nice swimming pool and location near the beach. Breakfast is great, lunch and dinner is repetitive but still ok. The mamajuanda steakhouse was not really great, neither was the italian. We paid 870 per person for 7 nights in september and thought it was ok. If you want better food go to riu... More

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

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
