We have just returned from 2 weeks in Puerto Rico staying at this hotel.
When we first entered the Riosol, i was a bit disappointed by the reception area as i thought it looked tired looking. But on closer inspection its not as bad as i thought. I just think the silver chairs with yellow cushions is not the right colour for the area.
We arrived in the evening and were allowed to eat at the buffet as it was still on. Plentiful food wise, but just really depends on what you like personally. Breakfast was always good but the evening buffet was a bit hit and miss. BBQ night was anything but, English night was awful and i ate nothing that night and there were a couple of other nights that weren't great either, but in general i did enjoy a majority of the evening food. The ladies who worked clearing the tables were always very pleasant but the same could not be said for the men. I particulary didn't like the main 2 men who worked in the bar. I don't know if it was because we weren't spainsih or because we were british that they weren't very curtious and I hated going to the bar to ask for anything. For this reason alone, they very rarely got a tip.
Our room was on level 3. Clean and basis. Never had any cockroaches like other people have mentioned. The only thing that passed though was cats. Now i am not a cat lover but to be fair, they never hung about and i ended up quite liking the black one lol.
Our housekeeper was lovely, very pleasant and always tidied our room on the days requested. She was well worth the couple of euro that we tipped her everyday. It was like giving her a bar of gold. The job they do, plus climbing up and down those stairs is not easy, so i would recommend tipping in this case.
Just a couple of things that i really didn't like and they were the lack of air con and charges for the telvision.
In general the Riosol was a comfortable place to stay. The reception staff were always helpful, especially the dark haired lady. We felt safe there and that always makes for a good holiday.
Will definately return to Puerto Rico as we loved it.
