Wonderful! We spent 2 weeks in a junior suite with a fabulous view of the pool and beach from the tenth floor. Air conditioned :) !!! Room very clean and comfortable but needs a bit of updating/deep cleaning in places with minibar facility and liquor optics. Staff could not be more helpful especially the pool (Jorge) and restaurant staff. Excellent...

2nd time we have been here. First time was magical,hence the reason for returning only after 18 months. But not all as good a second time around. Firstly no double rooms available when we got here after 10 hour flight (we did book a double room at time of booking) Put in a twin room for 24 hours so we...

I love Riu family if resorts. This resort I believe is one of their newest locations. The amenities are top notch with all beautiful suites. We did go at the end of the hurricane season so beware of the rain. It came every day. The entertainment staff is excellent. The food is great. You Can visit other resorts and take...

Check in is at 3:00, however they had a room available which was fantastic as we wanted to freshen up and get in our bathing suits. The room was fairly...

This was our third stay here, and we had another wonderful time. The property is beautiful, and they keep it immaculately clean. I can't say enough good things about the staff! When I called the front desk to ask for anything, it was taken care of right away (usually extra towels), and everyone there is so friendly and helpful! When...

Our visit was from 5/13/17 to 5/20/17. We stayed in the adult villas which is worth the extra money for the relative peace from children and the proximity of the bathrooms to the pool and beach. There are no public bathrooms by the beach or pool area so you need to use the ones in your hotel room. The rooms...

This resort was by far the BEST we went to in the last 8 years. We are a group of 14 people and we didn't have any complaints. Food was GREAT, drinks were good,resort was very clean.
