Riu Review. Emerald Bay

My review is posted. Fantastic holiday. Loved the area.

Anyone see the two cute Weiner Dogs on the beach. Just south of the Riu? Getting buried in sand sculpture? So cute.

NO waiting for elevators at all !!!! Hard to believe what some people complain about..

Not really JoLee. They hang around here (Though usually pretty far off shore) until March and April.

Ha! I thought the same thing about the milk/cream thing. And when people complain about their TV converter. Sheesh.

32 days! I'm loving the good reviews.

The rooms look beautiful but NO cream????

The only way to get real milk or real cream is to ask for leche fresca or crema fresca. Those little tubs with the peel off lids are usually crema substituto which is just a tub of chemicals, as is the powdered stuff.

Anyway, I'm very impressed by the appearance of the rooms at the Riu.
