    Excellent Vacation

    From the moment we stepped into the lobby, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless and had the look of being recently refreshed. Food was always fresh and tasty. We are looking forward to returning next year.

    4th stay

    We have stayed at this resort in 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023, We have already booked for 2024! We absolutely love it and have never been disappointed in the customer service, amenities or restaurants. The ONLY negatives we experienced are related to comfort. The furniture leaves us longing for home because the mattresses are too firm and the sofa couch is very uncomfortable to sit on. Won't stop us from coming every year though!!

    The worst hotel I’ve been to

    This hotel is 2 star max, not 5! The room, halls, elevators smell bleach. Everything in the hotel is super old. Restaurants smell like cheap canteens in the 90ies. Many super drunk people. There was this girl in the elevator that was literally falling. I travel a lot and I’ve never left a hotel like this before but I just couldn’t stay in Riu. So I went to reception 10 minutes after checking in and told them I was leaving. I specifically asked them several times if they would issue a refund. They said yes, but they also told me to send a message via email. I asked to talk to a manager who wasn’t helpful at all and also told me to send an email and explain what happened. I left the hotel on Thursday and sent the email that same day. Today is Monday. They haven’t respond to my email, they charged me for the whole stay and also charged a no-show fee on top. This hotel is a scam and I’m disputing the charges through my bank

    Birthday Getaway

    From the time of arrival everyone was great and friendly. The food was amazing the entire time, I thoroughly enjoyed the buffet and the fresh seafood options. I have no complaints whatsoever, everything I wanted or needed was on the resort.
