3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Its a good location for diving, the pickup point is only 50 yards away. This was my 5th visit and it seems they are cutting back to save money. The only way to get even the coffee restocked in the room was to call the front desk.They have even cut out the Mexican food at lunch. I am a Riu Diamond Class member, there is supposed to be a welcome gift and a greeting and automatic upgrade in the room, none of that happened. Its a shame because the staff and the location are fine.

This is an awesome property with really beautiful surroundings right on the white sand beach. The room was spacious and very clean. the food was delicious and variety endless. Bar was working around the clock to keep vacationers satisfied, all our requests were granted in superior fashion. Especial thanks to the entertainment stuff working endless hours to keep boredom away and us to be happy. Wonderful job of the front desk as well.
