My Mom and I do girls beach weekend every year and we always stay at all inclusive resorts. We knew what to expect and we were blown away! Last year we stayed at the Allegro Papagayo Resort and compared to this one it was a dump! The Riu was new and clean! There were 2 breakfast and lunch buffets, a dinner buffet plus 3 restaurants! There was no lack of food or alcohol! We stayed at the pool and lounged all day long, enjoying our cocktails! The bed was a little hard, but that is typical at these places.
The only complaint is htat since it is so far from everything, it is hard to get to! We did not make transportation arrangements prior to our trip. The Red Cab from the airport was $60, but it was private. The hotel shuttle back to the airport was only $50. I recommend making arrangements in advance, even if it is a little more expensive. It is worth the piece of mind!More
