Amazing Resort!
Wow! Amazing resort. Looking forward to returning for a longer stay! One suggestion: control the animals near the dining areas. Thanks!

Very good 8.0
Nice beach and location.
This complex is made of multiple small buildings with no Elevator available. Expect to walk long distances from lobby to your room. We get locked in our room for long time until Maintenance fix the locK and We experienced the same issue twice. In comparison with previous Riu properties this one is the most austere one interns of service and food options. On the other hand the beach is fantastic and the hotel is close to playa attractions.

I loved everything about the hotel. The staff super friendly, humble and attentive I have no negative feed back but I would have to say this (it’s a good idea, I did it) get $100 dollars in singles so you can tip the workers I stood 3 nights and I tip 2 to 3 dollars to everyone I had 30 dollars left and I gave it to my favorite bartender. You will learn that some just live off tip no wage another thing don’t buy off the beach I got ripped I paid almost 20 bucks for a cheap water case and when I go to a store it was 3 dollars So worth it loved the hotel super friendly

We were there the beginning of July during the Pandemic. The hotel staff was consistently making sure everything was clean and sanitized to keep us all safe. Every member of the staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful! The drinks and food were amazing, the housekeeping was excellent and the resort was beautiful! We will definitely be back!

Good 6.0
It was an overall ok experience. Our restroom had a water-leak two days in a row. We came into our room to find water running from the restroom to the room door. Our room key reader did not work we were issued another set of keys and the same thing occurred. At no time were we offered another room or any accommodations.
