Just got back from staying at the Riu from May 18 (Wed) till May 23 (Mon) with my wife and two young daughters (ages 5 and 18 months). Check-in was quick as we arrived there 3 pm on a Wed afternoon. We stayed on the 14th floor in an odd-numbered room so this meant having a view of the pool and the beach. We were high up (the next floor up is the penthouse floor) so we couldn't really hear the noise coming from the pool as described in previous posts. Our room was close to the elevators so during the night while sleeping you will hear them running if you're a light sleeper. The room was decent, no problems at all. The buffet had lots of choices - I enjoyed the grilled squid for lunch. The staff was very nice esp. Chante at the front desk. There are no kids activities at the hotel but my kids had a fun time at the beach, pool, and Atlantis next door where they have a Discovery Day Camp (not free). We also went to the Blue Lagoon Island for "Dolphin Encounters" and my older one is still talking about how much fun she had there. The ages of the people staying at the Riu were mixed: some elderly, others with kids (which we got acquainted with), married couples, group of ladies on a "girls only vacation", and even a class of high school senior students and their chaperones. All in all, we all had a great time and would definitely return for another stay.
