I went to the Riu with my girlfriend and we had a great time. Listed below are my Pros and Cons;
We always could find a chair on the beach (Could be the season, less people?)
A reef really close off the beach (Bring mask and snorkel)
Drinks aren't watered down
Pool was really nice with a swim-up bar
Entertainment was lacking: I'm not that young but the soft slow mellow sounds of the 70's after dinner, just put me to sleep. However on one night they had a beach party and that was really great.
-Bring US dollars to tip staff. It helps get you better service and honestly the people there deserve it.
a) I tipped the person who made me Omlettes every morning
b) Tipped the servers at all meals
c) Tipped the bartenders
d) Tipped Taxi and Bus drivers
-Check out the Reef by the Adult Beach (Bring mask and snorkel)
-Do take some trips away from the hotel. Use the Taxi drivers, it's better than the tour, because you don't have to wait for everyone to get on the bus.
-Bring your own insulated drink cups.
