The Staff are wonderful and friendly. Definitely recommend to all family and friends.

Nice

The property itself is nice but that staff were not friendly at all I would recommend this place to anyone.

The property itself is clean. However, the food was not that good, the food at the accrual restaurants was terrible. I was there for 7 days and enjoyed one good show. There is no entertainment throughout the day. There are themed parties but you have to take a bus to one of the sister Riu hotels and there are no kids allowed. There’s also no daycare to leave the kids. The nights that there are themed parties there’s no entertainment at night. So my family and I found ourselves going back to our rooms very early. This was my first time staying at a Riu and I will never return.

The room had no air conditioning, the phone didn’t work, no clean towels were given. Saw roaches in 2 different areas in the resort. Not enough activity and the music was lousy. The front desk didn’t help much either.

Great hotel. I would stay there again. Great staff, clean room, excellent food, great help with the tours and loved the activities at the pool.

Amazing

Good

I’ve been to D.R multiple times to different resorts and nothing like this one. Every single staff member was excellent, very attentive, took care of our needs and went out of their way to Help with whatever we needed or wanted. Other things we enjoyed was the convenience of everything being walking distance versus other resorts where you have to take trolley carts to get to/from lobby or restaurants. Pool was right off the beach, they had many entertainment day and night, including pool foam parties with live djs. Resort is family friendly, bar in pool. The food was the best food offered compared to others, they actually had Dominican food to offer which was a plus.

Excellent experience

Very good food and staff! Especially the stake restaurant! Enjoyed the beach

Everyone was friendly and up to par

The staff at the breakfast and lunch buffet were so friendly, specially Javier, Rauli and Julio. We had a wonderful time in this resort. The only thing I didn’t like it was the long time we waited on the line for the registration process . We were so tired after a long trip and just wanted to eat something and relax, but the employers at the front desk were very attentive and tried to do their best to their availability.

Nice hotel but definetly needs updating. Staff was great. Edward and Tony in the main restaurant were excellent. They remembered where we liked to sit and what we liked to drink. Hector the bartender was great also. I would stay again at this hotel.

I love the staff and time service. But sadly I got accosted the last night of my stay. It has required stitches and a brain scan. I don’t feel that those I have had close connections had any connections, but it will affect decisions on a future visit. It makes me sad in that overall the staff had been specifically very caring and loving to Every guest.
