I have always liked the RIU hotel brand and have many times chosen to stay with them. This time was no exception and did not disappoint. The hotel is a twist on modern with slim lines and contemporary furnishings and appointments, not necessarily my taste, but the rooms are well-appointed, with great views, superior customer service and stunningly beautiful and well maintained grounds. I read a few reviews about the music at the show being too loud. When they gave us a room on that side of the hotel, I was a bit concerned at first. However, we were right above it on the 8th floor and it was totally fine and not too loud. We actually were able to stand on our balcony and watch the show from our room. The show wasn’t the best but they also offer a luau out on the beach that is phenomenal. The food at the buffet, totally not my taste, but the specialty restaurants were outstanding. We were offered a villa, however, the views weren't as nice as the tower views and when I do travel to tropical destinations, I am there partially for the view. Overall, this was like any of my other RIU stays: Very Good!
