Although I would not consider this as a 5 star hotel as publicized. You get what you pay for. This is a good place if you like drinks, as a Peruvian I am too spoiled with food as we have a great variety. The food is a little bit greasy for my taste but is a bufftet so you can't...

Wanting to experience a tropical vacation for the first time, I chose the DR. Looking at the glossy brochures and charming little two-story bungalows in bright pastels, we chose Riu Taino. Overall, the experience was positive. What worked: The perfect weather. The big room in the quaint bungalow-sprinkled path of coconut trees. The amazingly friendly staff. The staff sing and...

Riu Taino is labelled as a 5 star hotel here in Europe. What is it that I didn't think it was worth five stars? Simple, here are the...

It's green and lush, just beautiful. The beach- is like paradise. The white sand and torquise waters. I've never been to a beach more beautiful. There...

We have been to Punta Cana before. So, we thought we'd try another resort there. When we arrived there we were taken to our two rooms. The door to our daughters room was already wide open. Shortly after settling in our daughters found a cockroach or other "big" species running around the room. We went to the front desk and...

The Riu Naiboa is definitely not a high-class hotel. But it does have what we needed--clean, quiet, balcony and a beautiful beach--a short walk away. Beds--were indeed hard, but I still slept like a baby. One night there were noisy people next door. The ret of the week we didn't hear a soul even though it was a busy week....
