    We enjoyed our trip to Las Americas! Food and drinks were great, bartenders and wait staff were very friendly, and never had an issue with finding a chair at the beach! My only complaint is that we were locked out of our room twice because of the battery of the keypad. Maintenance came a said they fixed it, but then we were locked out the next day. Waisted nearly an hour of each of our last two days waiting outside of our room for maintenance.

    I am not usually a person who likes to post reviews but for the amount we paid for this hotel, we expected better quality and service. 1. Employee staff: Employees here didn’t look happy and looked mad. Most of the employees were rude. We had an incident where we tried to swim in the shallow water and got yelled by the lifeguard telling us we are not allowed to swim due to weather even though it was clear. The othering hotels close by had no issued letting their guess swim. We also had a rude employee who refuses to give us any towels because she said it was going to rain which did it make any sense. 2. Safety: someone broke to our room and took our credit card and cash. We reported to their security which was a joke because they did not know how to handle and didn’t even how to speak English. Why would they hire a security who doesn’t know how to speak English. Plus their security did not have any law enforcement experience just someone they hired from the streets. 3. Rooms: everything was broken like toilet did not work, showers didn’t have hot water, sliding door for the patio did not work. We changed room 3 times and stil had issues. 4. Cleanliness: the hotel looks run down, paint falling off,cracks on wall and stains on the bed and choices. Hotel smelled like rotten fish. 5. Food: think of gas station food , that’s what it taste like. We reported these issues to the management of this hotel and I also sent an e-mail to complaints@riu.com but no response either. I Do not recommend this hotel! Stay away!
