This was a great place to vacation. We had a family of 5 and enjoyed our time there. The service was absolutely great. They go out of your way to make your stay enjoyable. The wifi wasn't that great as it dropped off every night and you had to log on again. The food was OK as well. There are plenty of chairs on the beach and lots to do. This hotel is also the closest to the town. We stayed in a room close to the pool and beach on the first floor. The room was pretty decent. We had two rooms. There are plenty of activities and the nightly shows are pretty fun. You can go to any of the other 4 Riu hotels nearby and enjoy their facilities as well. We did go on several tours but MAKE sure you purchase the tours from your tour company, NOT at the airport or on the street. It is timeshare pitch or a scam. Also BRING lots of singles because they dont exchange currency there so that you can tip the great service. The best restaurants we thought were Chili's and the Brazilian place. You have to make reservations early so do it when you get there. They fill up fast.
