Stayed here July 2-9 2014 with my two teen girls and 9 year old son. As mentioned many times before this hotel is cleaned 24/7. The food at the buffets was beyond our expectations. From all the fresh juices in the morning to the chocolate fondue and marshmallows at the end of the day.
Plenty of entertainment and games around the pool. I thought it was a good sign the hotel manager was to be seen around the lobby in the evenings...accessible management means someone cares. Cappachinos in the sports bar when I woke at 6:00 am or earlier. Jumping waves in the ocean on a safe feeling beach was great. Cruised though the next door Riu once but felt we made the right choice. I asked for extra pillows and we were given 8 more, so lounging around in the hottest part of the day was no propblem on the firm beds. I do wish there had been a better play area/activitiesfor my 9 year old. The kids club is geared to the wee ones. The target shooting for 12 and older....other than that I would highly recommend this hotel to families. It's grand, without beefing snooty.
