Stay at another RIU

We were very disappointed with the front desk service and the lack of communication at this resort. We were promised one type of service And received way less. While staying During our Visit we ending up also staying at 3 different RIU hotels part of our trip which were magnificent and way more upscale, staff friendly, front desk knowledgeable and more to offer. This is definitely a budget RIU nice but if you want to get the full experience stay at one of the other ROU hotels.

I had to pay $40 a tax to the airport because I was not picked up from my hotel. I don't know if there was a misunderstanding for my transportation but I was disappointed that I had to pay to go to the airport when everything was included! At the airport they officer said tha cheap Caribbean should reimburse me ! Now hotel was great the service was nice !!! Wasn't to happy with the food I would give it a 5 1/2 or a 6 .....

This is a 2 star resort at best and not a 4 star resort as advertised. After 2 days, we switched to the RIU Palace Bavaro. You pay extra but it is well worth it.

First family trip

It is a family friendly resort. The staff is kind, friendly, and helpful. However, I probably will not stay there again due to the fact that smoking is allowed at this location. I believe if this is a place where children are staying, smoking should be restricted to certain places. The only place smoking was prohibited was in the dining area. My kids and I can't even enjoy the lobby without people blowing smokes at our faces. The room is nice and clean but our pillows had a stinky smell to them, we had to place towels over them to sleep. Food wasn't what I expected, I was looking forward to some authentic Dominic food but it seem to be Americanized. It seems to have the same choice everyday. Don't get us wrong, we enjoyed ourselves very much at the pool where there always different activities/shows provided for entertainment, the water park was a plus and the beach was beautiful!

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, and the sugar-white sands of Arena Gorda Beach that's shaded by coconut palms? Epic.

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The mind-blowing, stress-smashing treatments at the spa. (Turning into Jello is a definite.)

The liquor dispensers in your room. Every day - or hour - is a party.

RiuLand - the kids' club that has a pool so you can take a much-needed breather. (Was that applause we just heard?)

Snorkeling at a large ship that ran aground where you can see magnificent, colorful fish. The equipment is free.

The resort's tropical gardens where you can wander and marvel at the lush breathtaking flora.

The friendly housekeeping staff - they'll bring you whatever you want.

 

What We'd Change

The resort is set behind a sister Riu resort and not directly on the beach. The walk is short and it takes you along Caribbean Street, the shop-lined promenade.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 19 miles from Punta Cana airport and 31 miles from Higey. Your vacay is about to kick in.

You can try out all the activities and sports of the four sister resorts nearby. Go for it.

Soana Island is well worth the trip. It's a quiet island paradise. A slice of heaven.

Windsurfing and kayaking or if you want a slower pace, grab a pedal boat and glide around.

Altos de Chavon, the "City of Artists" is near and a super fun excursion.

You can ride horses at the Caribbean Cachondeo, or hang with the stingrays at the Marinarium Marine Park.

Check out Caribbean Street - a variety of terrific stores for your shopping addiction.

Water park with slides, tobogans, kids pool, sun terrace and snack bar.

Hotel Description

Riu Naiboa: Your All-Inclusive Beachtastic Vacay is Here

When you first set foot on the soft sands of Arena Gorda, you'll feel the ocean breezes, then it occurs to you: you've got everything you ever wanted in a dreamy beach vacation. But then comes the decisions: should you snorkel and say "hello" to the fish? Grab a drink at the bar? Head to the spa to erase all your workaday worry? Hop on a boat over to delicious, paradise-found Soana Island? All of the above? Flip a coin to see in which order? It's all here. And it's all good. No, make that spectacular.

It's Time to Get Your Riu On.



DINING

The grub is on: the buffet with live, on-the-spot cooking stations will not disappoint (everything's fresh and ready to meet your lips), nor will the scrumptious Italian restaurant (travelers say the salmon is delicious), and let's not forget those delish basics at the poolside snack bar. It's time to chow down, even face plant if want.
