Very nice resort for the money. Food was great with large selection. Service friendly. Beautiful beach and pools except that pools were a little small and too many people. A lobster night would have been nice. Champagne was available in the bars but not in the restaurants. ??? Would recommend to others and will stay at other Riu's in future.

Shopping hint

San Juan mall is nice but a little expensive. Bus ride to Higuey is a great sightseeing trip using the local bus for about six US Dollars roundtrip but recommend not traveling alone and you might have to get a little forceful to keep guides from bothering you with their offers. Ask police or some of the larger store owners for directions if needed. Don't trust locals on the streets.

Punta Cana 2004

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 22, 2014
The hotel location is wonderful, but unfortunately there were a few things that need to be improved. 1. The staff in the front desk are not well informed about basic info, and many times they are not capable to answer your questions and help you efficiently. They have a very informal approach. 2. The rooms were very simple which is not a problem, but the furniture and linings have to be replaced, are way too old. 3. The food at the Mexican restaurant was terrible and the buffet needs more variety. My family and me spent six days and we ate the same food every single morning. The stuff in the Colonial dinning room were not always cordial and polite as we expected. 4. The beach area needs more shade! It is very hot .There are not enough palm trees to hide from the sun.

The Perfect Weekend Get Away

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
The staff at the hotel was so nice! The food was excellent for my taste! Our room had old furniture but we didn't mind since we only used it mainly for sleeping and showering! You can upgrade to a nicer room for more money! But this hotel has more activities than any other hotel around! Overall it's a great place!!

First of all, the hotel was not bad, we did have a good time, beach was perfect, pools were kind of small for too many people. Activities were not good, so do not even bother (archery, darts, etc..) stick with the beach activities (not that good either but better) Rooms are way too small, the mini bar was almost empty, (2 pepsi, 1 seven up and 2 beers) and they only refill every 2 days.. So imagine we were a party of 4.. I had to give a 10 dollar tip to have it filled. Beds are small and the mattress was way too soft. IMPORTANT. WIFI is only free at the lobby but only 90 minutes per day and the time counts from when you log in the first time, so if you log in the morning the time ends after 90 minutes even if you only use it 5 minutes. The pools (all of them) close at 6:00pm (sun still up). You have to make appointment for the restaurant (a la carte) at 7:00 am (the previous day) or you wont get a space.

fantastic family getaway

Would recommend Wed, Apr 23, 2014
Travelled with my family - 2 adult children and a 16 year old, my husband and myself. We had never experienced an all inclusive vacation or travelled outside of the US. We read the reviews prior and went in with an open mind We had the time of our lives. The beach had to be the most beautiful I have ever seen. The staff was all very friendly and accommodating. The food was pretty good, mostly buffet type food. We ate at three of the four specialty restaurants that required reservations. The Steak House, the Mexican and the Japanese Our favorite was the steak house' Mama Juana it is the only one that was not a buffet and we were waited on. The rooms were okay, We didn't spend much time in them so style etc wasn't important to us. The beds were very firm and the pillows flat, We only did one excursion, snorkeling , It was a great day and one I would highly recommend . You do not have to snorkel to participate. As the rest of the family entered the water with there snorkels and fins I sat back and enjoyed the view as well as some rum and cokes. We then proceeded on to the bath ..were we all went into the water and enjoyed some more rum and cokes and snacks. The nightly entertainment was enjoyable my only problem was the language barrier. It was all mostly in Spanish but you had no problem following along.

Money saver

I would suggest that you bring your own sun screen and aloe , We did not as I did not want to check a bag and the cost of one bottle of sunscreen was close to $30.00 also if you like snacks for the beach I would bring those as well as again to purchase these in the store is very expensive and most are not provided at any of the buffets. You are not supposed to take food out of the restaurants with the exception of the sports bar which is open 24 hours a day but really only has a cooler full of hamburgers and hot dogs for you to microwave and some fruit.

The entertainment is hilarious. The pool parties were good. The Disco plays good music. Besides that it's an average hotel. The food is ok. The steak at the steakhouse was the only really good food.
