Riu I love you ... Beautiful beach, loved the sound of the roaring waves and the soft white sand. We stayed April 19 - May 3 Grounds are immaculate, rooms are well maintained by the maids and service was probably the best I have ever had. Upon arrival we were greeted with drinks and a red carnation, room keys, towel cards and huge smiles from all staff. We were assigned a room on the 14th floor and because I have a fear of heights, asked for something a little lower, we were given keys to 2 rooms to decide which one we liked and we selected room 518 which was so awesome as you could see the pools and the ocean. Bar staff were hard working and always tried to tend to people in order, most people don't give tips but they sure appreciated when you did. Excursions were well organized by Johny and Juan and a lot of fun. David, security at the front of the hotel was friendly and got to know us and we got to know him and what he did on his day off. Victor the waiter was overly friendly and made you feel special. All in all staff were amazing. Food was in abundance with lots of variety, we ate at all the restaurants including Roy's seafood and Ponchos on the beach which of course were not all inclusive but oh so good. Most everyone finds something to complain about so I guess I will as well .... Or maybe not ... I love you Riu!
