Pros: Beautiful resort with great food and drinks.
Cons: Room could have better bedding and a remote for the ceiling fan.
Location: This resort has everything. No need to go anywhere else if you are looking for a relaxation and fun.
This was the first time staying at an all adult inclusive resort. Well worth the money. The resort was well maintained, great food, drinks and entertainment. The pool and beach were beautiful. Did not need to go any where else.

Great location, beautiful propertyPosted Mar 19, 2014
Pros: The staff was very accommodating - super friendly. The location was perfect and the grounds were beautiful. The hotel was really clean.
Cons: Keep their advertisements updated. Map still shows a jacuzzi, but it's gone. Says casino, but it's closed. Says you can go to other resorts, but no
Location: Club was decent late night, but it's not included in the all-inclusive. They advertise things that only happen once every couple of weeks.
We stayed for 4 nights. However, my husband and I are mid-30's with no kids, and we picked this hotel because it was adult only, thinking we wouldn't have to deal with little kids. Unfortunately for us, the majority of the population was over 50, and the entertainment catered to that age group. Pool closed at 6:00 pm. Last entertainment was 11:00. Live music every night, but it was always jazzy, waltzy, subdued. Other hotels of the same chain on the property had different entertainment and different vibes, but you couldn't experience them because the all-inclusive didn't carry from one to the next. Also, they advertise a casino on the property, but it's closed. They advertise that you can use other hotel facilities, but they don't tell you what (you have to ask) and it's actually extremely limited. And, even as it related to the events going on in this hotel - bingo, water aerobics, archery - there is one single board in an obscure area of the hotel that tells you when things are happening. I happened to pass it by accident two days into the trip. So, I think they really need to do a better job of getting people to participate and keeping people informed about what their options are in and around the hotel. I was content to lay around reading and sipping mimosas, so.....

Not overcrowdedPosted Mar 11, 2014
Cons: Expedia has this coupon you can print out for $35 off a massage at the hotel spa, but they will not honor it. Just expect to pay the full price.
Riu is good on everything except nightlife, evening entertainment

Excellent hotel.Posted Jan 12, 2014
We have been to a bunch of rui hotel over the years and this is the best by far. Hotel staff provides very good service. Bartenders and waitstaff were top notch. Loved the lobby bar and their great martinis. Coffee bar was great too. Hotel was booked, but the beach layout was so spacious that we felt as though the hotel wasn't full. Rain showers were awesome after a long day on the beach.

Nice hotel over the beach, the staff was kindPosted Jan 7, 2014
Pros: The location and view. The staff were very kind.
Cons: It need to be improved the smoking areas. I did not like that people can smoke at the pool, pool area and open areas at the hotel.
The experience overall was excellent. The only things to complain about was the smell in the hall (some days), and the smoking areas.
