Stayed at this hotel from 21st - 29th May 2007 with my boyfriend. Went being very open minded after reading previous reviews, even took own bedding as one review suggested. The way I see it is, expect the worse and everything good that happens is a bonus, totally unneccesary. We had a lovely holiday. First of all we paid extra...

It was my second travel to Punta Cana! The first time (three years ago) I stay in Fiesta Beach now Palladium and that was really a 5 stars (4 stars)! Now I am completely disappointed, the food was always the same day after day. There was no animation on the beach, and I never heard merengue music or dance! Some...

This my second time to the Dominician Republic but my first time to Punta Cana. I had read the reviews on the Riu Taino before I left. I was not really sure what to except but the hotel totally exceeded my expectations. The rooms were clean, the only thing that was questionable was the ceiling in the shower. The food...

Ok, so i know it has been 2 years since i stayed there, but it was so inexpensive and we loved it. The reason this Riu is inexpensive is because you have to walk down the streen of shops to get to the beach which is probably about 2 city blocks...so worth it. Even if you stay at the Palace...

Although I would not consider this as a 5 star hotel as publicized. You get what you pay for. This is a good place if you like drinks, as a Peruvian I am too spoiled with food as we have a great variety. The food is a little bit greasy for my taste but is a bufftet so you can't...
