        Individual guest reviews

        • The beach is really beautiful and five times and this place is great. The bar in the lobby is super slow, one bartender, one waitress and staff could not be more friendly. The bathrooms are clean and overall food is edible and we didn't go hungry.

          All the same fish and not worth the money, the service at the front desk was not good. The room had no ammenities and was not well cleaned we arrived.

        • Best beach in carribean, punta Cana luxury and the Steak House was really nice. First, the lobby was beautiful, service was great and had no language problems, our room was a king suite and was very clean, and comfortable. Coffee was very strong and the waiters were wonderful.

          The pool area was very busy, for a hotel open 6 months, was purely disgusting and the food was not as good as Playa del Carmen. All wines were awful.

        • Great rr on the beach, the balconies offer a nice view of the property and we liked the hotel chain and would like to see others. The price is very reasonable, the lobby is simply beautiful as well and the staff is friendly and very appreciative. The rooms are amazing, efficient bar tenders handing out cold drinks and breakfast is best meal of the day. For us Americans, is a little interesting to see all the topless ladies and guys in speedos, the pool is HOT.

          The drive is not very scenic, the food can NOT be described as inedible.

        • Area was beautiful and a lot of fun, our bus ride was interesting as you get to see much of the depressed countryside. The hotel grounds were great and the Gourmet restaurant was just OK, nothing spectular, and the Steak House. The beach was really amazing and service was good. Our room was nice, the pool was more than adequate and there was a swim up bar, the staff were too friendly and the toilet paper was too soft.

          After reading the reviews on this site i had set my expectations very low and steak place was awful. Beds were very hard was a bit uncomfortable and unfortunately the food was absolutely terrible.

          Breakfast is never ending, lunch is the same and dinner is lovely, as usual, the Americans didn't come across very well.

        • Beautiful beachs, wonderful atmosphere and a little money goes a long way. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous and spacious, the Riu service is excellent. The suites have two balconies and a hot tub, the gourmet restaurant is smaller than others, and is most popular.

          Very nice, untrained staff, after a few minutes in the room we didn't really notice any more and melo makes a mean drink as well.
