We were staying at the Riu from sept 03-sept 10. Yes. We were there during the earthquake. And i really cannot understand all the people giving bad reviews about the sunwing rep or the hotel itself. Hey people wake up it is called an ACT OF GOD. The earthquake happened at 8:45 AM, and we were on a coach bus at 6:30 PM, going to another all inclusive. You cannot understand how many time they need to relocate more than 300 clients. It is a big logistic thing, they need to call every hotel to see if frist of all they have the availability to accomodate more than 75 rooms. After, they need to make sure that they send their clients to a secure hotel. I think that 10 hours to do that is really good. You sunwing/signature rep did an awesome job, it was great. And... For all the stuck up people who think that those rep did not what to take care of them... Just imagine what YOU would do if you were at their place... I would have ran to my car and go home the fast as I can to make sure nothing happened to my family. If you are telling me that is not what you would've do, let me tell you that you are selfish.
