I went to other Riu Hotels (Jamaica, Riviera Maya) before, and I picked a Riu because their food is usually good. I was disappointed. The most I give it is a 3 star hotel tops. I travelled with my two children. The room smelled very bad, I could breath in the mold. Even the drapery and lamps had mold all...

Our tour guide Anthony on the bus ride to and from the airport was very friendly and knowledgeable and believe I asked him a lot of questions. It was a great first impression. On arrival to the hotel, they had an...

Just got back from an 8 day stay at this resort. It set in a beautiful mountainous landscape! There is lots of space to walk/run along the paths or long beach. The staff were friendly and ready to help you. The rooms were clean, stocked with alcohol and beverages, and spacious. The pool area and nice and had many different...

We are currently in the hotel. Easier to mention bad things: cockroaches in the room; beach sunbeds crap, old, not enough; food is just bad, same and same, plus not eatable. Very average hotel, but at least cheap

We stayed here March 11-17th. Came on a Sunwing flight. It sucks that u now have to pay for the "gourmet " food but that's the norm now . lol It took about 45 minutes to get to the resort with one stop at another Resort. Welcome drink with a crazy check in system. Separate desk with 3-4 people to...

Nice resort but not a 5 star. The food was good. The beds were hard and one of our rooms air did not work. We asked to have it looked at twice and it was not fixed. The other room never had any shampoo left in it. Went to the steak house to get coffee and was told no coffee...
