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...

we stayed here between 3/17 & 3/24/15 with our 15 & 18 year old daughters. The food was ok at best and they were not very good at keeping the buffet stocked up, do not bother with booking reservations at the "fine" dinning cafe all 4 of us had stomach issues after eating there. If you like to be asleep... More

After reading the reviews before traveling to this hotel, I was very apprehensive of what to expect. I ended up having a great vacation at this hotel with no major complaints! The staff was very accommodating and check-in was a breeze. We arrived before check-in time but front staff gave us a room at 11:30AM. Food was great, no complaints.... More

The staff at Riu Naiboa were the best I have experienced and made the visit extremely enjoyable. I really did not like the rooms as the bed was very uncomfortable, the phone did not work and we had issues with our safe. The food was very bland and we could not get reservations for the Italian restaurant as it was... More

The place was nothing fancy. While they had decent rooms, there is nothing 4 start about the place. The food was mediocre, except the chefs were nice and would allow us to personalize some of the food. Staff was friendly, except there was sometimes a communication barrier. My biggest complaint is the internet. The internet was terrible. You get free... More

I brought family members on a trip to enjoy the Dominican we knew. Low and behold it was an inexpensive trip - but buyer beware!! Some say you get what you pay for but we got less than what we paid for! Almost surprised it was RIO...... My hat's off to the RIU Palace. It made out trip worth going... More

We ended up staying at the Riu Naiboa absolutely by chance, we were looking for a good holiday, long haul, without paying through the nose for it! We were in the travel agent and the lady helping us offered us a week here, for the dates we wanted, for an absolute bargain price. We just jumped right in and booked... More

To start, we are not the type to moan about nothing & have experienced many different `star rated` hotels in many different countries. Grounds are nice & well kept. Pool is okay, however area for sun loungers is not big enough to accommodate everyone when at full capacity. Beach is nice, however not quite as beautiful as I had hoped,... More

Stayed here with my friends for a weekend getaway, quick, simple and cheap. Hotel all inclusive, average service, lots of food, and a good pool. When we stayed there was a group of baseball kids so we hang out most of the time at the beach which is 10 minutes walking distance or at hotel next door pool which is... More
