The hotel was ok , the lobby smells like smoke that is coming from the casino , the casino stinks from smoke it was BAD!! The grounds and the pool is nice and clean and so is the beach. The food in the hotel restaurants was average at best.

The staff was not as friendly as some of the other Riu's we had stayed at. They were not helpful when you had questions or if a situation occured. That was very disappointing. They did not go that extra mile to make you feel welcomed. The rooms are very dated and could definitely use an update. The food ifor breakfast and lunch were okay. You do get sick of the same old food for 7 days. The specialty restaurants were very good and you left stuffed. The alcohol was all from the island so beware there is not any top shelf liquor and they have 2 choices for beer Balashi or Chill. There is not a gift shop in the hotel so if you forget anything or are looking to shop you jave to go to the Riu next door which is an adults only and they will not allow any one under 18 into that hotel. On a positive note the entertainment for most nights were very good. The beach was beautiful and clean. The water was turquoise and clear.
