    Honeymoon

    We had a great trip to the RIU in Punta Cana. The properry is beautiful and the people are great. We had gteat service the entire time we where here. Our waiter Sandy was fantastic he helped us out and made us feel welcome. The property is vety clean and well kept. The only issue is the seaweed at the beach which they have no control over but there is a lot of it. We will be xoming back and signing up for thiwr rewards program. I highly recommend thia hotel.

    Sandy, FUN Sandy!

    Sandy was fabulous! Our first morning here he greeted us at the breakfast buffet with hugs and promised he’d take care of us for the week and he has kept his promise. This evening he greeted us at the dinner buffet as well...and always with a hug. This guy made our experience here even better with his above and beyond service! Thanks Sandy.
