We stayed at the Riu from Jan.21 to the 28th. Check in was very organised. We all had welcome drinks. Our room was ready when we arrived. We asked for extra pillows.They were delivered in 5 minutes. Another time we had a problem with our safe ( my screw up ). They were there right away.
The staff was very friendly. They seemed to be cleaning all the time.
Pool temperature was comparable to the day temperature.
Weather was great(80 degrees)
Beach was great for walking on.Beautiful view
Every room is ocean view.
We made it to two specialty a la cartes. Mexican was good but the Italian was anything but good. It was buffet style ; not as advertised. We (all four of us) walked to the buffet. There did not seem to be much Italian there.
One day we walked down the beach and ate at Mr. Lionsas.It was great food at a great price. ( I sure hope I got the name right )
All and all ; It was a great place to stay. It was very enjoyable. We met some really nice people there.
As a footnote ; My wife and I went down to save chairs at 9am on Saturday morning and we were the first ones there.
We would definitely recommend this resort to anybody.There is some minor things ; but none the less; a great holiday
