I went down there with a friend as she stayed at several RIU. And was told they are all wonderful. There was many things that was great. The food, The A La Cartes, Beach, Staff were all wonderful. There was no face clothes in the room. We just had soap. I was never in a 5 star Hotel that limited your wifi by lobby to 90 minutes. That's not in spurts. You logon and only do 1 minute you are screwed. You get no more unless you buy it. My friend said she noticed all the women who worked at the bar's never smiled and never said thank you for the tip. As we were leaving we were talking with some other travellers who said they had cockroaches in there room. When went to front, they said we will spray your room. They said no and told they wanted another room. There was lots of kids as it seemed to be for every 2 people there was 1 kid. They did keep up with the cleaning. The maids did take along time to clean 1 floor, but they did a good job. The worst part of the trip was the beds. They were like sleeping on the floor and flat pillows to go with it. When complained they ignored us and would not do anything about it. We were usually up at 4am from painful backs. So if you like hard hard beds this place is for you. This was my 7th time to Punta Cana and I will go back, But not here. Some people really liked it, But a few I talked to also thought the star rating was very generous, and should not be a 5.
