Beautiful, relaxing resort with excellent service! We've staying in the resort as well as the villas and highly recommend both. It's great to have beach access along the entire property and having multiple pools allows you to participate in pool, party games or simply relax and enjoy the views.

Brilliant !!!

Stayed for 2 weeks from the 24th June with my wife and daughter . Had a really good time, couldn't fault the food , drink or entertainment ( some of the reps shows were a bit cheesy but you had a laugh ) Did an Ocean Safari jet ski tour which was really good and of course Coco Bongo . Had a really good time Will be back !

Amazing Resort & Service

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and 5 days in May of 2018. The resort is superb and the staff and service was out of this world. We will be going back in 2019. The food is amazing and the pools and beach are great. Thank you Riu for a great vacation!!!

Very nice but not excellent family vacation

This is a very nice resort. The reason it is not 5 star is because it is not an excellent resort. 5 star resorts don't miss things. Everything is exceptional. Here everything is very good but not exceptional. Pros: pools are fun moderate amount of activities food at the buffet and restaurants was very good most staff was quite friendly Cons: the beds are horribly small. They are listed as double but probably closer to a single. One thing I learned from another reviewer was to ask them to put 2 beds together. We did this day 3 and it made it much better. Check in was horrible. It took a good 45 minutes from the time we stepped in line until we received our keys. Way too long. Mini fridge was supposed to be stocked every day. Ours wasn't restocked until the third day. Not a huge deal, but again this kind of thing doesn't slip past a 5 star resort. All in all it was a very good trip. The entertainment staff is pretty good, always having fun. I have been at other resorts where there are a lot more planned activities. That makes the days more fun when there are choices of things to do. It was the same schedule here every day. Diego, the bartender in the lobby is amazing. Snorkeling near the pier was pretty good. We saw some lobsters and a barracuda. In general the food was really good, although by the 4th day you could tell they were recycling left overs. This makes me feel old just saying this, but the entertainment shows are too late. They start at 9:45. After all day playing volleyball, darts, snorkeling and whatever I am relaxing in the room by 9:45. 9:00 would be better. I would go back, but for those of you that haven't been here know that it is a good, fun place but not the lap of luxury, catering to your needs kind of resort.

A good family all inclusive resort

Good resort all in all. Good buffets with various food, and multiple restaurants, nice riu people with good customer service. Towels are sometimes dirty even if you just got them. Rooms are kinda small for a family of 4 Various activities around the pool
