Check in and check out were quick. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Food was great especially the poolside BBQ. Activities were fun and massage was good. The grounds were neat and clean. Room darkening shades were great and the room was quiet at night. The minibar was convenient and was kept stocked. The shower head was great. I would have liked somewhere to hang my towel in the shower. Variety of restaurants and excursions was good. Drinks were great and not watered down. There were higher shelf liquor choices available and included in the all inclusive. The nightly entertained could use an overhaul as the singers were awful at lip-synching. We were shocked that they didn't know the words to Tina Turner and Michael Jackson!!! The lobby housekeeping staff needs to be told not to sweep around the feet of guests!! All in all, the stay was awesome! I would definitely go back and recommend to family and friends.

The hotel was recently renovated in October 2017. It was so nice and the new pools were awesome. My only critiques are that the double bed room we reserved had the beds pushed together as one large bed and there was no ventilation in the bathroom. With 3 people showering, it got a little steamy in the room because of that. Every staff member we came in contact with was very nice and the entertainment team was so much fun. They are really good at their jobs.

Conditions there were horrible staff would not accommodate us when we asked them to. When we had a complaint, staff couldn’t handle it. Didn’t help us. You can’t make reservations at the restaurants do you have to wait one hour in line. This still doesn’t guarantee you a spot. This is a very lower class place and I would never go to a Riu hotel.

Was expecting a great experience.

First, the hotel lobby was always warm and muggy, my room would only be a muggy cool during the day,and cool at night,my room phone and safe didn't work only sometime's, the only thing that was good there was the pool bar,the beach,and the buffet, the other restaurant's was okay, but you had to wait in line for 45minutes if you wanted something other than buffet, I have been to other RIU hotels and they was absolutely great,but this one,very disappointed.

Great location and pool

The beach and pools were the best parts. The room was great with a view. Some wear and tear. Daily refills on the all you can drink booze, beer and bottled water in the room. The staff was mostly great and helpful and friendly. Coffee bar in the lobby was nice to have. I wish they had another bar though...pool bar closed at 7pm and then there is only the 24 hr bar that's in a very dark and boring room. Not the tropical getaway bar anyone is looking for. The shows in there were nice . The "DANCE PARTY" was a dj in the corner that put pre recorded music on for 45 minutes. After 7 I would go to Atlantis next door but , of course then you have to pay for drinks. After reading the reviews before we went I see where the problems is with the sit down restaurants and I wouldn't bother. The buffet is nice and available all day and until 10pm. So at the restautants, No reservations allowed, they stand in line for an hour it looked like. 2 sittings but you still might not get in. We got in one time when there was room after the 2nd sitting at the Japanese restaurant and we were walking by. Dark, boring, no music and the waiter sucked. Food never came and we went to the buffet. Lesson learned. What is a shame is that even though the locals here work hard to make it nice there, the local cab drivers you will deal with are scumbags that just want to jip you. Alway negotiate BEFORE you get in. The numbers are all over... not regulated or metered.

Rooms were clean and were kept stocked with drinks and alcohol. Buffet was great. But, disappointed with other on site restaurants. No reservations taken. You have to line up an hour before opening and hope you get seated. We waited an hour at the steak restaurant only to be sent away due to full capacity. You could get rid of the less popular restaurants, like the Indian. And, add more popular, such as Italian.
