So where to start.... positives: great room service, always stocked water cooler and drinks. Never needed any attention. Great steak house. Good portions. Etc. great beach. Negatives: Awful food choice. No bacon at breakfast!!! Towards the end all I ate was bread and cheese. So tired of the same sweaty bland greasy choices. Pool areas were too small. Way too...

outside of the food, this was a good spot to come to. The pool bar is beautiful, the bar and maid service is very good, the beach is awesome, and the nightlife is very good on the resort. The animation staff on this resort was very entertaining and the lounge entertainment at night was very good.

Rius never disappoint. 25 min bus ride to resort, beautiful beach front property. Entertainment crew was great! AJ was our favourite, very welcoming and fun. We had a deluxe room which was great, just near the construction that is going on. Beach was beautiful and main pool was always a great time. Would definitely go back!
