My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary in Punta Cana from July 29 - Aug 5 2006. The hotel Riu Naiboa was ok, but wish we would have spent a little more for one of the other Riu's. The staff are exceptional. They are extremely friendly and trying to please. The animation staff are so outgoing and are hell...

We just returned home from a 6-day trip to the Riu Taino. This is our second time staying at a Riu All-Inclusive hotel (the first time was for our Honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.) Riu has a complex of six hotels in Punta Cana which provide accommodations for every budget. Ours was definitely the "budget" experience and if you...

Went to the Riu Naiboa in early July 2006 for 2 weeks. myself and my husband took our 3 children who are aged 20, 18 and 8.

The hotel is very clean and well looked after, the staff make an amazing effort with presentation. Every Thursday there is a Caribbean party at Caribbean street, the staff put up cocktail bars mad of wood and banana leaves - they build these from scratch every week! They make beautiful sculptures from food in the restaurants and the selection of...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Riu Naiboa for the first week in June. The weather was great (hot, but in the shade breezy and perfect!), the food was wonderful with many choices, and the staff was excellent! We had a standard room, which had a double bed and nice view of lush palms. The mini bar is included...

This is the perfect hotel if you are on a budget and don’t seem to mind staying in a simple room but with the same excellent service you would get at Taino and Bambu. If you expect a luxurious room then this is not the hotel for you. The food, service and entertainment is the same (excellent) as the other...

My husband and I (both in our 30s) went to this hotel after finding a great deal online ($99/room, all inclusive). We stayed for 5 days. We found it to be clean (a little smelly from the cleaning detergents though) and the hotel was very responsive to our needs. The first room they gave us had an air conditioner that...
