We were at the Riu February 5th -12th We had another successful trip. This resort was extremely clean the staff was friendly and worked very hard to keep the resort clean. There where several pools plus a swim up bar. The rooms were nice and clean and the bathroom was spacious. Our bar fridge was always stocked. The food at the buffets were always full and very tasty. We did the Asian,Italian and the Mexican restaurant they were all very good we enjoyed all three of them. There where lots of variety and tasty drinks at the resort. We went to Mr. Lionsos restaurant down the beach the food was excellent,we got to sample tequila as well. Very friendly staff. The evening entertainment at the riu was good. The beach is beautiful we walked it everyday. Anyone who is looking for excursions try the whale watching we saw lots of whales and dolphins as well. It was the highlight of our trip. The other one we did was the veraneando adventure zipline tour there's 12 ziplines plus you get a dinner and a tequila tour..we had a blast. We got the zipline tour thru Chris the waiter who works at Mr Lionsos restaurant which is at the end of the beach. Please make sure you tip the staff they work very hard.. All in all I highly recommend this resort I hope to go back again sometime. There was 8 in our group and we all had a blast.
