We had a wonderful time!!! Girls Only Vacation. The staff is amazing and very accommodating. First, I read the Reviews and Forums on Trip Advisor(S/O to Joleen). We emailed our request seven days before arriving. On travel day, we exchanged some cash for Pesos at the airport. We passed the sharks(sales people) and got a taxi(Benz Van) for 360 pesos....

Nice hotel, staff friendly and hotel kept very clean. Downside can get very noisy in so if your after a quiet break forget it. Full of Canadians and Americans who seem to get louder and louder as the day goes on. Pools nice but not enough umbrellas and people still putting their towels out in the morning. Food became a...

Only okay and certainly not a 5*. Give it a 3.5. Based on everywhere else we have stayed in resorts (including other Riu), this one ranked pretty far down. I likely wouldn't even have written a review except it was passed off as a 5* and doesn't come close. With exaggeration it is a 4* and then add in fixtures...

We enjoyed our week stay at this hotel. The beach was beautiful. Beach chairs seemed plentiful. The entertainment staff did a great job. We enjoyed most of the shows. There was also music in the lobby and a vocal group in the evenings. The buffet restaurant was good. Sir George was the best sit down restaurant although Flamingos is by...

This hotel at Christmas was absolutely over loaded with people, plus the serious noise from the enormous stage central below our suite was seriously over bearing of the same loud never ending entertainment, once this closed down around midnight the nightclub below kicked into place to go onto 3 or 4 am in the morning, with serious noise arising from...
