Loved the beach.

Fun resort lots of activities, super friendly staff. Problem with hot water, first few days we took cold showers. And on the last day the water system shut down completely. The rooms are nice and a good size. Stocked bar in the room was welcomed.

Almost Up to the High Standards for Riu Hotels

Bavaro meets many of the Riu standards. It had beautifully maintained grounds with palms, grass, and fountains everywhere. The inside was hotel stylish and everything gets cleaned constantly. It's right on the ocean with plenty of chairs in sun and shade. There are actually 4 Riu hotels next to each other so the beach chairs go on for almost a mile. The nightly shows are entertaining. If you want quiet time around the pool, inquire after the VIP rooms which have a separate quiet pool without the music, exercise class and other hoopla. Even with the regular pool, you can move further back where it is quieter. What didn't measure up was the food. The Riu Las Americas in Cancun has outstanding food in every category and restaurant. This Riu had a choice of at least 80 items at the buffet but too much had been on the steam table for too long. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't Riu quality.

Excellent stay

We just finished a 7 day stay here, traveling with a group of 3 couples. The hotel did a fabulous job of keeping our rooms together, and provided top notch service. Whenever we had a problem with our rooms, it was addressed promptly (for example, the rain showers weren’t working In two of the rooms but they were fixed by The end of the day). The food was incredible, freshly prepared and a wide array of options. No one in our party lacked for options. The service by the pool was quick and we were never without a drink. Absolutely beautiful grounds, the staff was always seen working to keep them clean and maintained. I would recommend staying here. As for the seaweed complaints, of course there was seaweed on the beach, you’re on the ocean. However, it was never an issue and didn’t detract for the turquoise blue waters or serenity of an ocean breeze. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

Beautiful destination, friendly staff

Really nice all inclusive for a quick couples getaway. Right on the beach, with everything right there. Staff were always helpful, willing to accommodate, and wanting to make sure your stay is pleasant. The Riu Fun and Fit Teams always had some activities they were trying to get people to join. Although we didn’t join, it was fun to watch (really enjoyed the nightly children’s programming; kids are so funny!). Had a great room with a beautiful view of both the property and the ocean! Now to the nit-picking: FYI pool closes at 6pm nightly (bummer if you were looking for a romantic moonlight swim), food was either a hit or miss (don’t recommend too many red meat dishes as many were “over cooked”), expect to be solicited at the pool, on the beach, or even walking through the property during the day selling everything from boating or spa packages to jewelry and pictures with exotic animals. In our room you had to let the shower run for a good 10 minutes prior to getting warm water, so plan ahead. Didn’t get the mini fridge or liquor bottles in the room filled every other day as advertised, although property is all inclusive so we could have asked or just go down the the bar for a drink. Overall would certainly go back again at this location or try one of their other options.

Amazing!

It was a pleasantly comfortable experience. I was very happy throughout the entirety of my trip. The rooms were clean and it was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I could not have asked for better service. I would recommend everyone I know to come here.
