The pool games are a...

At first we were very weary about heading here for vacation with friends and family. Read the TA reviews every day before departing and read some very negative comments which made us worried. Here's my response to those comments.....IGNORE THEM TOTALLY!!! Grant it, this location is not a 5 star resort so if you're looking for that you might as...

We booked our vacation via MLT Delta Vacations. They did an excellent job! Hats off to Robin V., Teresa, Cynthia, and Valerie. We arrived early and envelopes with our room keys, wrist bands and info were ready! Most of the rooms were ready to occupy, a few people had to wait-so everybody had lunch, time to check out the resort,...

The resort has no elevators & u have to be traveling with at least 20 bags for the bellboys to help you. The 3 a la carte restaurants were always booked out. The bathrooms are not conveniently located. The cuisine is ok, I ha an octopus salad at dinner one of the night. However they have an awesome entertainment crew....

My boyfriend and I came here to attend Sumfest. We were looking for comfort, good food and great proximity to the event. The Riu provided us with all three. The food was fantastic, particularly on the weekdays and the room, while nothing to write home about, was suitable for its purpose. There are small bugs in the room as others...
