    Good Trip

    Hotel was good but one of the bar pools that we went to everyday started getting nasty like they hadn’t cleaned it in days. Also we were in building 8 and had no hot water the last two days of our stay.

    Great Experience!

    Stay was fantastic! Not sure why some people had negative review's, but I took my 12 year old daughter for her Spring Break and it was really great. There were a lot of college kids partying for their spring break, but we just found our quiet spots as the property is HUGE!

    Nice little get away

    Our second stay here at the Riu. Great trip overall. Loved the water slides. Great location. Bed is a little uncomfortable, no biggie. Super loud w the spring break crowds, however the security was quick to attend to it. Little tip, don’t waste time on the steak place, conversely, the Italian place is the best!
