We went here in January 2011, hotel was nice and i like the set out, all the little apartments, i prefer this to a huge tower block.
Everywhere is clean as always at Riu hotels, the pool area is great and the beach is really nice, private to so no hasslers!! loved the kayaks and water sports ( awesome)
Entertainemtnwas great also, my girlfriend won Ms Mambo - not sure if thats good or bad when you see what they have to do! we still have the bottle of rum she won though! :)
The food was good, my mum got ill but we did drink a lot, when you got a rum and coke, it literally was rum, with a dash of coke, which was great on a night.
Would definately go back in the future, want to go elsewhere first though, we actually walked around the other 2 sister hotels and thought this was the nicest, and cheapest, best beach, restaraunt and pool.
One bad point, dont go on sea fishing trip :p
