My spouse and I spent one night during the Independence Days celebrations, hoping for quiet, peace, and relaxation. Our room was spacious with a separate living area, and exceptionally effective soundproofing. The rain shower was fantastic! The breakfast buffet was amazing with more variety than any of the other hotels we have stayed at. The pool area was nice, albeit crowded with children since we stayed during a national holiday. Staff members were pleasant, polite, and professional. We will definitely be back!
I was in this hotel with my family for 3 days. Reasonable price, delicious breakfast where you can eat your fill. Unfortunately I didn't manage to jump from the pool. I can recommend the hotel to anyone
A good business hotel in the middle of the city
The hotel was fine; I particularly enjoyed the breakfast. There was a refrigerator in the room but not a microwave, which I needed. After much arguing -- and even involving my employer -- the hotel provided it. Be aware that the tap water at the hotel is not potable, as a sign above the sink warns. I bought bottled water water at a nearby supermarket.
Good Hotel for Business/Pleasure
Stayed at the RIU for a business trip. Great central and safe location. American style hotel with great amenities. Saw many families staying at hotel as well. Rooms had great views and good size with sitting area. Poolside restaurant is good. Jose at the pool side restaurant provided excellent customer service. Definitely recommend for any traveler.
Best place to stay. It’s above my expectations.i recommend this place to stay and hopefully one day will come back and stay there. They are very friendly and clean and well organized except their elevators which had more load on and sometimes stuck
