TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Fabulous stay at a beautiful resort!
Tamara E, Winnipeg, Canada

Resort was a lot smaller than we thought but it was BEAUTIFUL!!! Check in was smooth, room was clean and spacious complete with mini fridge and safe.The staff were always smiling and willing to help! The buffet restaurant always had plenty of choices for meals so we never went hungry. Super easy to book a la carte restaurants! We tried Krystal, which was amazing and the Steakhouse which was good but not spectacular! There were always plenty of chairs available at the pool and beach although shaded spots were at a premium. The nightly entertainment sounded great although we didn't actually go down to the theater but sat on our balcony to listen.The front desk can exchange Canadian for Pesos but not USD. The only complaint about our stay was that our room seemed to get cleaned at all hours of the day which was not always convenient. More>

Excellent

This is the best hotel ever staff was amazing with or without tipping. Food was incredible drinks were great. Very clean no fear of water or getting sick. Would go back over and over again. No real complaints just need more bathrooms by pool area and a light on the deck so u can read at night. Loved it other wise going in Aug 2016 again. More>

Memorable holiday

Myself and my fiancée stayed here for two weeks over Xmas period and loved the place. We have stayed in a few Riu hotels through the years and again standards were very high. Our room was lovely with fantastic sea view and was cleaned thoroughly daily by great polite staff. The staff and service was second to none and food in all the restaurants was of a very high standard with our favourite a la carte being Krystal fusion but they were all great. The Xmas eve champagne reception and evening meal blew our minds with massive choice of lobster and various other fresh seafood options along with meats and fresh vegetables (no room left for desserts.) Only downside was the sun lounger situation where at pool and beach folk were reserving loungers and not using them (my pet hate)........ Other Riu hotels I've stayed at had rule that if you weren't on lounger at 8am towels are removed and it worked. All in all had a wonderful holiday and would certainly come back here. "Thanks for the wonderful holiday" More>

I said I'd never go back again

Well I said that, but I did. Got a last minute deal with Apple Vacations I could not refuse. We still have the same problems I addressed four years ago. No eating areas or restrooms by the pool or beach. I will never go back again. More>

Very Nice!

I generally do not post reviews but because I read many reviews of this hotel that scared me, I felt the need to do so. Two negatives (but not deal breakers): Beach is not really walkable due to pebbles, etc. and lack of outdoor restrooms. Adding a restroom near the beach would be a real plus!! The hotel and grounds are impeccably kept. The food was good - a wide variety at the Buffet. Our favorite meal was at the Japanese restaurant. Excellent sushi and steak entrée!! Bar service was always prompt and Andres was our favorite bartender!! Staff was nice, friendly and efficient. So, all I can say is many people must only be able to see the negatives and not the positives. A beautiful resort and a wonderful vacation! More>
