The property was clean and the staff was very attentive. The nightly entertainment can improve and the dinners all seemed to be on the salty side. Overall a great resort.

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stayed there before and thought it was a good value for my money and liked it so much I returned. The property was renovated since my last stay in 2019. The resort is well maintained. All areas are kept clean. The grounds are beautifully manicured. All the staff is very friendly and welcoming. I liked how they added more pools. I traveled with my daughter. We arrived prior to check in time so our room was not ready. They accommodated us by giving use another room that was ready. They assured me the room was the same in size and accommodations. My issues were with the layout of the room. I don’t think the renovations in the room were thought out well. The toilet is a room by itself without air-conditioning and there is very little space between the wall and the front of the toilet. It would be very difficult for some one over weight to use it. The shower is visible from the bed area. This left little privacy. The only private area was the toilet which barely held one regular sized person. Also, they put a bath tube in the middle between the beds and the sink/shower area. The only way to get to the sink was to go around the tub. This turned out to be a bit annoying. I think this room might have been more appropriate for a couple not a mother and daughter. I was only going to be there a few days. I didn’t ask for another room. I ended up having to leave a day earlier than the checkout day I booked. The RIU company refused to refund the extra day.
