Only visit if you are a heavy smoker
CourtneyEckhoff, Crown Point, Indiana

I was torn between a 2 & a 3 for this resort. We are well traveled, and are very laid back people. So, please keep that in mind: Good things: The staff is lovely! Everybody was very kind, friendly, and helpful. The resort is modern and kept very clean. Our room location was in the main building in the second floor. We had no issues with noise. The activities were very fun and there was something to do all day, even on the rainy days! The drinks were great and food was pretty good as well:-) Not so good: 1-The rude European smokers! There were more ash treys then trash cans at this resort. They definitely cater to the smoking crowd, I got a very bad headache one day because it seemed those people were all over the place, at breakfast, the beach, EVEN IN THE POOL!!!! I have no idea why those people are SO unbelievably rude, but they will blow their nasty smoke right at you without a care in the world. Who smokes while eating? The resort is so pretty and modern, but the smokers gave it such a low class and trashy feel. This was a trip that I won, so it didn't run my vacation, but if I paid my own money- I would have been VERY upset. Why should I pay my own money just to have nasty smoke blown in my face causing bad headaches? 2- (minor) the fridge in the room never worked 3 - it was very rainy, and you could smell the septic system at times when walking down the hallway on the way to the room All in all, we had a nice trip. The beach was just beautiful! It is very nice for a short stay, and if you are a smoker. Non-Smokers - don't waste your money here. More>

Not equivalent to a 5 star

Rated a 5 star resort but they don't even have comforters in the bedroom, how is that possible? Management was rude and wifi was only good in the lobby. Did I mention I got trapped in the elevator twice, doors wouldn't open. No out of service sign on the elevator even though employees were aware of the problem. More>

My friends and I spent four great days at the Riu Bavaro. We had the best time! The food was excellent, The rooms were spacious and clean. What sets this resort apart from the other places I have been is the service.The workers went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, happy and entertaining. From Luis at reception, Gabriel who carried our bags, and so many others whose names elude me right now. Our favorite was Karina our server at the buffet during dinner. She made us feel so welcome we sat in her section every night!! We also chose the same servers for breakfast , as they were very nice as well.The ladies of the Renova Spa were also excellent. My masseuse Dulce made sure we were comfortable and relieved any apprehensions. Spa day was awesome. The entertainment at night was fun and lively. It was enjoyed by all ages. The pool and beach areas were clean not overcrowded. The poolside attendants made us feel pampered. A great time was had by all. We are still reliving it now that we are back to our everyday lives.

The resort was beautiful. The rooms were spacious, clean & the rain shower was awesome. The staff were all great. Pool bar was fun. Staff were attentive, lots of smiles & good service. Buffet was large. Fusion & Italian restaurants were a nice change. No complaints. Only raves. The beach was big & beautiful. More>

Fantastic vacation!

I went on vacation by myself to this fantastic all inclusive destination. My room was spacious, nice balcony and well appointed. Was supposed to have a king bed but was really two smaller beds put together. Not really a problem since I was by myself but king bed as expected would have been better. Delicious food in all restaurants except the steakhouse. Enjoyed nightly entertainment--especially with the group of new friends I met the first night. Property and beach were beautiful and staff very friendly and helpful. Surprised with fresh fruit and Champaign left in my room on my birthday--nice touch! l in Highly recommend this hotel. More>
