Prior to leaving for our trip, we read several negative reviews about this hotel, the staff and the food. I dont know where these people stayed or what accomodations they are used to, but this resort was wonderful! Although it was not the most luxurious place I've ever stayed, it was really nice. The hotel staff were great and pleased...

We stayed at the Riu Taino from Feb 6- Feb 13 this month. We flew out of Minneapolis on Ryan International Airlines. Great flight, have some cash handy- they sold breakfast sandwiches or burritos for $5 each. Liquor will cost you extra also, but we just packed a few personal size shooters of rum and vodka and added them into...

We went to the Riu Naiboa from Feb4-11. Six of us in our group, 2 of which have never traveled before. The 4 of us who has been to the Domm. Rep. before knew what to expect. To keep it short and simple, the Naiboa is your standard 4* hotel with above average service and good buffet resturants (didn't try...

This review will not be about Riu Naiboa. Although I was suppose to stay at this hotel, they overbooked and upon my arrival informed me so. As you could imagine I was dissappointed and annoyed; however, they said they would like to have me stay at the Majestic Colonial for the night and handed me a voucher good for a...

I was very impressed with the Riu Naiboa overall. A friend of mine and myself booked it as part of an all inclusive deal online. I feel for the great price we paid to go for 5 days, we got so much more than we paid for. The rooms are nothing special and the beds a bit hard, but my...

We just returned from a 7 night stay at Riu Taino and loved our experience. We have been to another resort in Punta Cana twice which was rated a six gold apple and this resort far exceeded our prior experience(s). We loved the cabana style rooms and the immense privacy offered by them as compared with the hotel style of...

Stayed at the RIU Naiboa at the end of Jan 06. Was a great place...the food, drink, pool, staff and entertainment were fanatastic! Everyone there made that extra effort to make sure you had fun and enjoyed yourself! Set 5mins back from the beach gave the shelter and a bit more peace but you could also eat and use the...

Spent a week with friends (1/31-2/7) at the Punta Cana Riu complex. Had a great time! In walking about 7 miles of Bavaro Beach, I didn't find a resort that had a better beach with either more sandy beach area or nicer palm trees. It is a beautiful location. I stayed at Naiboa, while my friends were at Bambu. I...

We booked the Riu Taino for our January vacation back in November and because of the reviews we felt pretty confident that we would like it....and we did. The rooms were decent (nothing fancy by any means). The pool was decent, and the beach was beautiful. The food was great (with the exeption of the Steakhouse's uncooked meats...hopefully a bad...
