First of all, I have to say that when reading negative comments about this hotel like food/outdated decor/European smokers I feel I have to say that this is untrue. And yes, I believe I can do this, simply because I stayed at this resort for almost a month; and I have seen many happy faces around who came to enjoy... More

My husband and I just got back from our Christmas vacation during the week of December 17th and I probably would never go back to Punta Cana again. Negative - -My husband and I were disappointed when we stepped into our room. It had older furnishing and a very musty smell that only got worse each day (it smelled of... More

The biggest asset of this hotel is... beach! Yes, it hasn't got it, but you need to walk just 200 meters to be on nice, sandy beach. Rooms are bit old, but bed in our room was good, so we slept well. So Plus! Plus: cabinet with alcohols in your room. Plus: good crew in pool bar (Buda Bar) are... More

This hotel is in a good location in a green area. The lobby is spacious and clean and staff is helpful. The rooms are big, clean and all have a nice balcony, either overlooking the resort or swimmingpool. At night there's entertainment around the swimming pool area which can be noisy. So we suggest to take room on the street... More

My wife and I stayed at the Riu Naiboa from Dec 25th til Jan 1st. Let me say that we are the biggest advocate of the Riu hotels as we just love them and recommend them to all our friends or other folks travelling. But, I have to admit that this Riu, is not really a true Riu or its... More

I just got back from a week over Christmas with my two children - 9 and 12 years old. We had a really good time and I would recommend this resort, but I will not go back myself for one reason. There were a lot of Europeans at the resort and they smoked everywhere! They smoked in the restaurant (even... More

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
