My friend and I enjoyed this resort. It was perfect for the Quick End of Summer Vaca we were hoping to have. The Room was decent, the beach was fantastic, the pool was great. The location was great for excursions. The restaurants were good. The japanses restaurant Entrees were great but the appetizers, and sushi weren't that great. The lobby bar and sports bar are the best places to get a drink. Every drink we got at any other bar, tasted like tequila...Water, Vodka, beer..EVERYTHING tasted of tequila. The best part of our trip has been SueMe ("Swimee) at the lobby bar at nights. She is fantastic, energetic, Speaks great English and made our nights!! She definately deserves praise. The bar could use a higher end selection of vodkas and flavored vodkas. Even if we have to pay extra for it. All of the tile in this place is extremely slick so be careful. The rooms could use a few more towels. The housekeeping took all of ours and we had to call three times over 2 hours to finally get towels. Also, while you can use the other Riu Resorts close by, you cannot enjoy Dinner at them as part of the package. This was not disclosed prior to our visit. All in all this is a decent value and I'd recommend it to friends who want an easy inexpensive trip.
