Dates of stay 19March - 24March. I've worked in the hotel/restaurant industry in America for over 20 years - I think that is important to note because I really like to look at hotels from a management standpoint. If you are a woman planning on a girls only trip, I would not go to this country. I would only plan...

I've stayed at the Riu three times, this was my fourth. I read the bad reviews. I knew there were places with better reviews. I chose riu because I've always been happy there. First- yes, it's a bit dated and in need of renovation. That's ok. Second, there are 5 riu's in a row here, we were under the impression...

Loved the resort. All inclusive and beautiful beaches. Staff was excellent and sun was bright. Went in Feb and had a blast. Would highly recommend this resort. Only one draw back was limited internet. And brush up on your Spanish

The room was very nice. The only bad feature was there are no door chains for extra security. Anyone with a key could just walk into your room. The dead bolt would not stop them. Overall, the place was very nice. Many places to eat at. Food was just average.

Me and five of my friends recently stayed here for our spring break trip. This hotel needs a major face lift. Our room had mold all in it which I thought was a health hazard. There was mold all in the shower so I never really felt clean afterwards. The service and entertainment was excellent though. The staff here do...

Room: Very clean and spacious. We had a corner balcony, which allowed a two-directional view, which was nice. The room was also stocked (and re-stocked daily) with 4 types of liquor (Vodka, Gin, and we assume-- rum and whiskey), beer, bottled water, soda, and mixers. This was part of the all-inclusive deal, so there was no charge for using the...
