Nice hotel, staff friendly and hotel kept very clean. Downside can get very noisy in so if your after a quiet break forget it. Full of Canadians and Americans who seem to get louder and louder as the day goes on. Pools nice but not enough umbrellas and people still putting their towels out in the morning. Food became a...

Only okay and certainly not a 5*. Give it a 3.5. Based on everywhere else we have stayed in resorts (including other Riu), this one ranked pretty far down. I likely wouldn't even have written a review except it was passed off as a 5* and doesn't come close. With exaggeration it is a 4* and then add in fixtures...

We enjoyed our week stay at this hotel. The beach was beautiful. Beach chairs seemed plentiful. The entertainment staff did a great job. We enjoyed most of the shows. There was also music in the lobby and a vocal group in the evenings. The buffet restaurant was good. Sir George was the best sit down restaurant although Flamingos is by...

This hotel at Christmas was absolutely over loaded with people, plus the serious noise from the enormous stage central below our suite was seriously over bearing of the same loud never ending entertainment, once this closed down around midnight the nightclub below kicked into place to go onto 3 or 4 am in the morning, with serious noise arising from...

Went over the Christmas / New Year period 2016 / 2017, had a great time, we had a room with a fantastic view of the ocean (4020). Service was second to none, all the staff work so hard and make such an effort. Traveled with my husband and 3 year old son. One of the most child friendly resorts we...

We went during that crazy time after Christmas so they were at full capacity and that was not ideal. I think all of Canada and all of Manchester, England came in on a tour. The food was good, loads of options. If you want to eat in one of the restaurants get in line at 6:00pm to ensure getting in...
