We enjoyed our visit. All staff was very friendly and helpful and work very hard. Grounds were kept very tidy, spills and trash were cleaned up quickly. Buffet selection and restaurant options were impressive and food was good. Really enjoyed the street tacos by the pool. Name-brand booze available in-room and upon request at bars. Disappointed the pools close early and there is no hot tub. Hope all those plastic cups are getting reused/recycled. Will visit again!

Loved the property. Staff food and drinks were excellent. The only thing I would have changed just a little is the bars do you close at midnight. Maybe just stay up in an hour or two longer.

Stayed for 5 days. The room was ok. It had a moldy smell. The bathroom had no privacy. The food was not very good. The staff was very friendly. I will not return to a Riu property.
