Beware the tiny casino off the side of the bar has a game called super keno or super roulette. It is a scam, you will think your going to win because you will get close to the 100 points you need to win the jackpot relatively quickly but you will not win and you will lose a lot of money. I did. I lost $2500 and if I had more I would have lost more...yea, I got sucked in. This hotel knows of this and allows this for that reason I will not ever use a riu again. You may say, well it's your fault, and yes your right but for the hotel to knowingly allowing a game such as this is not right. The food at the hotel is ok but not great for sure. The people and service is great! The diving is poor. If your going anyway, take the atv tour that stops at the beach and where they make cigars and coffee.
Do not gamble in the Dominican Republic it is not regulated and if you think odds are not in your favor in the states, well guess what.
I've always liked Riu hotels but I'm done. They're not ethical and there are many others to choose from.
