Our vacation was March 11th 2010 to March 18th 2010.,. This is the 4th time we have stayed at a Riu. The first 3 were in Mexico, Playa Del Carmen.. the Palace being the BEST. I would rate this the third in line. The food for breakfast was great, lunch OK, and Dinner was OK at the 3 specialties. But only at the Steak house did you finally get to be served, and relax. Otherwise it is serve yourself. We had no trouble with Theft, but heard of some. The beach is dark and not very appealing . The Pool is Wonderful, new, and set up very well. . No drink service, by waiters, only get it yourself, but they are friendly. the liquor is not by far of any quality. One Beer served and the drinks lack alot. This can be a wonderful resort. We were without our luggage for 30 hours, and I quess this happens alot. Would like to visit in the future, but not for some years, as they are suppose to build a Palace Riu next to this one, and that service should be 5 star. Loved Costa Rica, loved our tour guides. the trip are always a long day. but worth it. Go and enjoy the country. From Wisconsin travelers. :))
