Our family holiday for 2 adults and 3 children aged 11, 9 & 4 was a success, the check in process at this hotel is effortless you don't even have to sign anything. The general impression of this hotel is good, clean tidy and friendly staff. However we were a bit disappointed that the rooms advertised on the internet brochure...

Last fall my husband and I stayed at a Riu in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and the experience was great. We thought it a no brainer to try one in the DR. It was horrid. We were lucky to get a newly decorated room at the very back of the "resort". I think my biggest gripe is the food. It was...
