We stayed at the Riu March 8 to 22 2013. We had a fantastic time. The people really make this resort. Everyone from the bar tenders, food staff, cleaning staff, restaurant staff to the entertainment staff had the same goal in mind, to make sure I felt welcome and had a great time. The entertainment staff are second to none. The nightly shows were the best I've seen at any resort. You couldn't walk anywhere without getting a hello or being drawn into the fun and activities. We saw the staff that worked with the kids on the resort and were out standing. The food was great at the smorg. We travelled with 10 other people and everyone found something they liked to eat every meal. Grounds staff keep the place spotless. The location of the beach brought seaweed up but the staff did their absolute best to keep the place spotless. A note for travelers, I got suckered twice, do not exchange you money at the airport and do not buy booze at the "Duty Free Stores in town" The airport gave us an exchange rate of 77.8 to 1 and the front desk of the hotel gave us 92 to 1. I bought a bottle of 12 year old Appletons Rum for $35.00 at a "Duty Free Store" same bottle at the Appletons Estate Tour was $37.50. But at the Airport it was $24.00.
