Bring a Gas Mask to this hotel!!! its awful
I was looking forward to staying at a RIU establishment. Beware that this hotel is nothing like the resorts you may be used to on islands such as Jamaica. As soon as you walk into the hotel you are hit with the strongest scent of mildew!!! At first we thought it was just the lobby- but unfortunately when we got off the elevator on the 24th floor to our room- we were slapped with the awful pungent scent again. It smells as if millions of gallons of water were poured onto layers of carpet and just displayed throughout the hotel. Once inside the rooms the same scent hit us. I believe the hotel is aware because we asked for some spray in the bathroom and the worker came in and sprayed it directly on the floor! We told her we just needed it for the air. The breakfast buffet which was included in our stay was AMAZING!! I ate so much great food. I also had the Panamanian buffet dinner one night. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. However I came home and have been having the worst allergies and sinus issues. I know they are due to the overpowering sent of what we believe to be mold and mildew. That scent caused us to wake up in the middle of the night coughing and with stuffy noses. As beautiful as the lobby is and that good breakfast buffet- I could never recommend this hotel to anyone.
