We stayed at Riu Taino from April 14-21 2006. The weather was amazing!! We went with 6 people ages 24-35. The staff was very nice and always presented a smile and "Ola" with each passing by. The food was diverse however by day 4 a bit repeatitive. A HUGE downfall to the restaurant is assigned eating times. One group eats...

This is my 3rd trip to Punta Cana. The Riu Naiboa is a beautiful resort, and you never have to leave the compound. It's safer to stay on the grounds. The food at lunch and dinner could be better, but the staff, pool and beach are out of this world. The breakfasts are outstanding. The most beautiful beach I've ever...

Just returned from the Naiboa April 6-13 with our 3 kids. We have usually gone to a 5 star so we weren't sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The food is what you expect at these hotels, there is something for everyone, even fussy kids. We all ate and drank everything and none of us became sick at...

Went to RIU Naiboa with a friend for March Break. The beach was absolutely lovely and the weather was gorgeous. The room was fine - not glamorous but everything we needed. The food was good - I can say I never went hungry. If you want food from home then stay home. You have to remember you are on a...

We have just returned from a week at the Riu Naiboa. It was our honeymoon and we had a fab time. The hotel was lovely and the staff were great.
