Beautiful hotel with friendly staff

This was our families 1st time doing an all inclusive so we don't have much to compare it to but it was pretty cool! We have a family of 2 adults, 2 teens and a 10 year old and we all loved it! The main buffet was very good, so much food!! Some things were a little cold but if you went back they would make new. My favorite was the theme restaurant, Bamboo. Lots of great sushi, shrimp and rice. There were drink carts everywhere around the pool, we were never thirsty! They would even bring drinks to you if you asked the staff members walking around. The staff everywhere at the resort were very helpful and always had a smile on their face. Make sure to bring enough one dollar bills or get enough small pesos to tip, as we tipped the maid, waiters and bartenders daily. The pools are very spacious, we loved the pool volleyball. Our only complaint with the pools were the temperatures, the one we never went in because it was a "Canadian" pool so it was freezing. The other could have been a bit warmer too, especially with the cooler temperatures we had when we were there. There were always enough chairs to sit on but if you want one in the sun and right next to the pool you have to reserve it right away in the morning. They have many activities through out the day. Ping pong, volleyball and bingo, poolside. Also they had water aerobics and Zumba which was fun. The nightly activities were not as plentiful. The main show on the stage would start at 9 every night so there was nothing to do from when we ate at 6 until that started since the sun had already set. Maybe they could have more indoor games set up. The beach was beautiful! It was nice that they had ropes to block off the vendors from coming up to the hotel. The vendors were all very nice though, I had my hair braided and I got a henna tattoo for a good price. We tried to rent out the boogie boards a couple different days but they only had 2 of them. They weren't very strict on the time people used them so they were never back when they were supposed to be. When we did finally get to use one of them we found out it was more of a kick board than a boogie board. I think the hotel could upgrade to bigger ones and have more than 2. Overall, we loved the Riu and will definitely come back in the future! Maybe closer to March/April when the temperatures are a little warmer!

fun, safe , warm.

we stayed again feb 7th till feb 21st 2017. room 1122. this resort is very clean, inside and out. the staff work very hard. the food is fresh, hot and re-stocked all the time.the staff do a great job for all meals, they work hard. the staff seem to be happy and smile each and every day. The front desk is a great help to guests if you call or go to the desk. our cleaner Brandon did a great job for our stay. entertainment crew are fun. I did miss the air gun game. the swim up bar is fun. so happy that there are no kids. the beach is great for walking. it gets cooler at night so bring a jacket. the ocean is cool.

Just spent a week with 16 friends and we had a wonderful time. Check in was fast and our rooms were all ready when we arrived. All rooms had an amazing ocean views. We were on the 17th floor. Never had to wait to long for the elevators like some of the reviews have said. The pools were very nice. The pool bar was a lot of fun got crazy at times but what pool bar doesn't. If you didn't like that type of atmosphere there were plenty of other pools to go to. The pool bars bartenders were very fast at getting you what you wanted. Sorry I didn't get names and I cant remember any of them. The food was very repetitive and could use a little more specialty restaurants. I didn't starve but got sick of the buffet atmosphere. There is a great restaurant that is orange just a few walking distance on the beech that was amazing and very cheap to eat. Highly recommend it. We ate there 3 times. The most fun place to hang out is the lobby bar. Jose and Marcos were the most amazing bartenders I have ever met. Jose never let your drink be empty. His personality was out of this world. When SD walked in Marcos and Jose always remembered what all 16 of us drank. Kudos to both of them. They made our evenings fun.

One of the best Resort's we have been to in any country

Room was very clean, modern and quite spacious. Staff were great. Bar tender Pueblo was awesome. Food was good. Beautiful place. We have been to many country's and Resorts. This is one of the best. The only bad thing I could say about the place is they pack the hotel with locals on the weekends. That made for long lineups and no beach/pool chairs available. Staff took care of them first and that was annoying but it was only on weekends. Other than that everything was excellent. Would absolutely recommend.

The hotel was very nice,food was good & somewhat of a variety,however there is nothing around it. The only store was an OXXO (7-Eleven). Very dry & dusty with no grass ,no shops,nothing of interest unless you choose to lay in the sun & drink all day.The hotel also doesn't take American money or exchange it so for a 2.00 charge to our room I had to charge it on my credit card with a 3% charge from the card company. A sign saying they only accept pesos would have been appreciated.
