Riu exceeded my expectations in all aspects. Everything was great-from check in to check out. Safety is their number one priority- guests safety. There are security guards on duty 24/7- main entrance, beach access where locals can easily get an access to Riu property if not monitored. I liked the system when you sign up for a tour and your tourist guide picks you up at the lobby, the security guard gathers the info of your tour (the tour, vehicle plate number, driver’s name/tourist guide name) and that is very crucial. As for the hotel amenities, everything was great- infinity pool, sunset in front of the lobby and pool, food varieties, entertainment, hotel services, and the staff. The staff makes Riu a five star, everyone has a smile on their face, everyone greets you Jambo, everyone offers help, everyone checks in on you, and everyone is friendly. The restaurant manager Randy is awesome. He always makes sure that guests are satisfied and well taken care of. He goes around to check in on his guests. The bartenders, servers esp at promenade, housekeepers especially Rose, lobby staff, Lucy from Ia restaurant, the guards at the beach day and night, and every worker at Riu gained my respect because all of them are exceptionally good. Ty Riu! Will definitely go back. It is worth it. Hakuna Matata😍
