The staff stopped just short of spitting on us! Got sick on the "wine/drinks". Food was terrible. My girl friend & I requested 2 beds, & were told they don't have anything but kingsize. The upgraded room was nice enough, but no connection to the internet as paid for. The entertainment staff behaved sexually inappropriately by touching & saying inappropriate things to women. If you wanted anything, you were asked for a tip, and if you did not tip, you did not get. I have traveled all over the world and never been treated so poorly as at this resort. It was rated a 5 start by Apple Vacations. I would not even give it a 2.5. So disapointing. They clearly do not like Americans. Could not even get a blanket in the room when I was sick & running fever. It was a scary situation with 2 women traveling alone. I will never recommend D.R., Riu Resorts, or Apple Vactions to my friends who travel .
