I had my birthday weekend it was fun and safe

My pull out bed smells very bad ! when i lay on it . You can tell that it was time for Riu to put it in the trash .

The property, the room and facilities are nice. However, the water is unsafe, there is an overall bad musty smell, in the room's bathroom due to the water, the store and the overall place. The water in the shower smells so bad that you feel like you are showering with sewer water. The beach is too rough and there is no lifeguard on duty. There are too many vendors at the beach that do not let you rest. The pool was green and closed during most of our stay. The restaurants are not too bad but the buffet and snack place are full of flies and birds. The drinks are watery. We got food poisoned the same day we arrived and did not get to enjoy all the restaurants. When checking in, we were approached to "upgrade" to the same kind of room but closer to all the fun if I gave the guy a good tip. The transportation that is offered from and to the airport is all about the tours. They try to get you to buy tours since you arrive at the airport until you confirm your pick up. The trivia night was fun.

Been to Punta Cana 12 times and RIU Republica was my least favorite. Food was low quality and small selection. Service was good. Pool and beach were good.

The upkeep of the rooms were poor. Dirty sheets, no pillows and our keycards had to be replaced numerous times.

I would stay here again.

Beautiful property So much fun

Staff seamed bothered at restaurants when we would ask for anything. Rosie at breakfast was the BEST!! Walls are super thin so you’ll hear your neighbors cough. They never give you face clothes! I just kept saying it’s because of the price. That’s what got me by.

Food was trash

Staff was in general not helpful

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The covid testing or re-entry into the United States was a little challenging but after we figured out what the appropriate steps to take were, that went quite smoothly. Good selection of food and restaurants, very nice beach and pools were cleaned daily

Is a great place to stay for the money. Food is great

There was no room service and after 10:30 PM all restaurants are closed they do not allow you to take food back to your room. So if you get hungry in the middle of the night you have nothing to eat I am diabetic and sometimes need to eat small snacks all throughout the day. The beach was beautiful the restaurant staff was accommodating maid service for the room was OK had to ask for clean washcloths every day.
