3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just a regular hotel, too much noise, no air conditioning in social areas, just one pool, regular international food, nothing special. Reception not really very friendly. Internet just in social áreas, if you want in your room you have to pay a fee. We stay there for just 5 days.

Unlike all the other rius on the same location, naiboa is cute and relaxing if you are looking for a quiet vacation, a few hours of animation in the pool area, no swim up bar, no kid club, and some night entertainment, then this is the place for you. If you're looking for more of a party atmosphere, I would... More

Myself and 3 girlfriends all booked Riu Naiboa from July 12-July 17th. We had an amazing time!! I am writing this review for the people who are reading the reviews on the resort and panicking that they chose a crappy one (that was me) or hesitant to book this resort. Yes, this is not a 5 star resort, however it... More

We stayed at the Riu Naiboa in May for 11 nights. The hotel is set back from the beach but the walk down Caribbean street is lovely. Our room was lovely and the mini bar and fridge were well stocked. the pool area is lovely though the pool could probably do with a bit of a paint, none the less... More

Just want to thank the stuff for the pleasure during my family vacation. The food was always good, recommend "chocolate", fruits, meat and sweets. The standart rooms are basic. If you want better, you always can ask to change at the reception. It's possible to change the next day. Understand the stuff and wait a night. Do not avoid the... More

The hotel is just ok. I would give it only 3 stars. The territory is pretty small, as well as swimming pool. You have to take pretty long walk to the beach. The food is average. We would not come back again.

The resort was nice. Staff was wonderful. Food was different, caters more to European type of food. Beach was a little walk from the resort, however the shops to get to the beach make it worth while. Plenty of excursions that can be bought from lobby. Stayed on first floor and was able to get wi-fi the whole time I... More

Me and partner stayed in the Riu Naiboa Hotel for 2 weeks for the first time in the Dom Rep. This hotel is more a 3 star than 4 star has a basic room, facilities. Although this didn't bother me or my partner as we got a very good price so didn't expect a luxury in the hotel. The service... More

Me and my girlfriend went for 2 weeks, on arrival the check in was smooth and fast, offered a glass off something alcoholic and on our way. The room was pretty basic but we didn't mind that, we had everything we needed so that was fine. The food was the biggest disappointment, it really gave us bad stomach ache. Breakfast... More
