We have just spent 10 days at this very nice hotel. From the very quick check-in to all of the meals and the entertainment the staff were helpful and always chatty and polite- with one exception which I will come back to later. Big shout for Winston in the sports bar, as well as Cleveland for his card trick, and... More

Just came back from 2 weeks here, one of the best holidays i have ever had! Such a lovely place, great hotel and great staff I have made this review very honest and quite critical so that people can make their own decision on it. Check in - quick and fairly easy, you get the option to take your own... More

So lets start with the BAD: The beach was full of ants. The water isn't the bluest in the Caribbean. The food was ok, all buffets style, no 24hr cook to order places. No snacks in the room. No room service. NO ELEVATORS to get room. Stone-Age TV's, Rooms were cheap looking, bed was hard af. Casino had nothing to... More

I picked this hotel (last year) due to the stellar reviews, and I have to say they were all on point. My girlfriends and I had a blast here -- the pool activities were fun (especially the dance lessons), nightly shows were amazing with some of the most talented people I have ever seen (e.g., they pulled off a Michael...

Just came back from the Riu , doesn't deserve poor reviews, the hotel is very nice, always being cleaned, food / always at hand, main buffet restuarant does get a bit repetitive though but the food is still good. Most of the staff are really helpful and nice and try and help in any way they can. The rooms are... More

These are the facts of this hotel firstly the staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you, the beach is man made but that won't stop anyone enjoying it or seeing fish in the water we saw a sting ray about 2 feet from shore. This is where the jerk chicken is served and like so many before this... More

I was disappointed with this hotel. First stay at a RIU so can't compare it to others. Room was small, the 2 supposedly queen size beds were pushed together with just one headboard which was very strange. There were two of us in a room and we only got a towel each per day. There was soap and shampoo provided... More
