    Not perfect.

    Hotel showing its age,have been traveling to DM for 30 years and this hotel is not outstanding,has had a refurb at some point but now over due for another...Most staff very good but a few seem to want to be somewhere else..a dollar tip here and there make a big difference to the treatment you get,,,,my biggest problem was the biting insects,in 30 years never had so many bites on our legs even after repellent sprays and wipe,I think the problem is the strip of sunken land between the pool and the hotel,it is covered in old coconuts sold around the pool by the gardeners and then thrown into the bushes,they fill up with rain and make a perfect breeding ground for the biting little so and so's ....did see spraying going on but still lots of flying insects around 15 mins after the smoke cleared,.....Pool very good,nice that the bar was not in the pool like some hotels we have been to,lots of signs around to tell you whats not allowed but no one takes any notice such as no ball games,no inflatables no food in the pool plus no saving beds.

    Great girls holiday!

    I have just returned from a 2 week holiday with my friend and loved every second! The hotel was clean and the rooms cleaned daily. Our cleaner left different flower arrangements daily. The pool area was clean and there were always sunbeds which was a bonus! The staff were really friendly and couldn't do any more. Would definitely reccomend the pool parties which are included in the all inclusive. I would definitely reccomend this hotel. Ignore the bad reviews some people complain over anything!

    I could/can’t understand how this hotel is either 1* or 5*;intellect I checked out the people writing the reviews the bad reviews are from people that just moan moan moan. Check them out. After just returning my only complaint is with TUI,NOT THE HOTEL.Yes of course there is mosquitos ,but ‘this is the nicest hotel of the lot surrounded by jungle and surrounded with banana and mango and coconut trees of course you are going to find insects in 2 weeks I got 4 bits,but I wore Mozilla bracelets and used Mozilla wipes.the other hotels are on the sea front where there’s a breeze to keep them away,or is it the blasting music they have🤪The hotel manager and Mercedes,Blueand the reception staff are Great.However tui not there to meet on arrival 0/10, Hotel 10/10. Gin on optic would have been nice in the room...

    Awful place

    I visited here in September 2017 , the beach is the only lovely place to be with a beautiful walk on the way passing through a strip of little shops either side. The food was dreadful with flies all over it , the same slop for evening meal as you had for lunch , no choice of restaurants just the one main place, people smoking all around you with no designated areas for smoking, the pool area is very noisy, there was a terrible smell in the mornings, thank goodness for the beach or my trip would have been ruined. Never again would I book to stay in this hotel.

    Nice family vacation at Riu Naiboa

    We were a familyof 30 people that visited July 19th to 26th. This is one of 5 Riu resorts (Maco, Bambu, Bavaro, Palace) located in the complex. Check in was pretty quick and we were off to our rooms in no time. This a smaller resort and was good for us as we had 15 kids and was easy to keep an eye on them. The food was nice although a bit repetitive but then again you always get something new to try everyday. Shoutnout to Santo at the main buffet, Georgeo at the lobby bar and Diana at the snack bar by the beach. They always serve us with a smile. We took the opportunity to visit the other Riu resorts and they are amazing and we already planning to return to Riu Bavaro later this year. The Riu pool parties is a must we enjoyed ourselves. If you want an excursion just see Carlos from Sruba and you will get a great deal. We did the snorkeling and swimming at the natural pool. Overall this is a nice small hotel for families to enjoy. The only complain is people smoking everywhere although there are kids around and the rooms been in need of some refreshing. That's the only reason why I give it a 4 star. If management can designate an area for smokers and non smokers it will be much appreciated for all.
