    Does the RIU management stand by their statement that they do not know how crooked the casino is? Regardless of whether or not the casino is leased to the operators, does RIU stand by their guests to protect them from cheating beyond comprehension? Knowing NOW, will the RIU management inform guests NOT to visit the casino? Read the reviews specific to the casino located INSIDE the hotel. Not a safe situation.

    Hi our rep advised us to give the casino a miss but Riu has nothing to do with the casino so i dont think they will guarantee anything.

    Hi thanks for your review it sounds great and we are looking forward to our holiday there in may. We have a concern regarding the weather - whilst you were there we noticed on our app on our computer that the weather was terrible - rain, rain and more rain every day, yesterday indicated lightening and again today rain. However all the reviews mention spending time by the pool etc. Was the weather nice whilst you were there I hope it's just a glitch on our app. Many thanks again.
