Probably a silly question about RIU

I'm heading to RIU Guanacaste at the end of July. I've been to one all inclusive before in Jamaica but am certainly not an expert in traveling so here is my question: does Riu offer an area to wash clothing? I'm just curious because we will be staying there for over a week and I think I would rather spend an hour doing laundry then having to try and cram all those pieces on clothing in one suitcase!

They will do the laundry for you...of course for a fee...I really do not remember seeing any laundry machines or any area to wash clothes as you said..

You may find areas to wash clothes in some of the smaller, less expensive hotels but at an upscale resort like the RIU, why would they when they can get a little more money out of you by doing your laundry for you.

And not a silly question at all for an inexperienced traveler. Ask at the hotel and you may be able to find a local lady who will do your laundry for you and cheaper than the RIU.

Wash it out in sink/bath and hang it on balcony to dry!
