I just got back from Riu Naiboa & had a wonderful time!! The staff was very friendly & helpful with everything from small requests (more water in our fridge) to handling bookings (3 rounds of golf for 6 people). As Canadians, we are treated MUCH, MUCH better than the other guests (mostly Russian & German). $20 in tips spread out over the week to various bar tenders went a VERY long way. PLUS, as long as you smile & try to speak some Spanish (no matter how bad) the staff appreciates the effort. I read earlier that they were under renovations; well, renos are now complete & the place looks great (better than 3-star). The food was wonderful, nobody in our group had any issues, rooms were comfortable & clean.
I'd recomend this resort to anyone looking for a basic vacation, where the staff treats you like friends opposed to guests
