Hoped for better

Being honest, this was an old hotel. Beds hard, food was so-so. The sit down dinner restaurant has the same food as the buffet. The menu never changed at all same every night and day. The food was cold and need more variety. The pool and bartenders at Budas (night shift ) is the best feature. The smoking area was all over the resort ashtrays everywhere on chairs tables pool area and beach. It was disappointing to sit at beach or pool with smoke always in your face.

Good vacation spot.

Airline was great. No complaints in the traveling of the trip. Everybody is eager to help out and make sure you are having the best stay possible. It was great service for sure. Our hotel room was good. Unfortunately the tv, refridgerator, and telephone didn’t work. Not sure if it was due to power issue in the room or what. We made the front desk aware but it wasn’t fixed. I didn’t worry too much about it because we were by the pool or on the beach most of the time anyway. The pool was the best part of the hotel. Meeting new people was great. The staff has events to do by the pool or in the pool pretty much all day. At night they provide a show of dancing and events that was fantastic. The food options were good but after eating the same food a couple days in a row I got bored. Don’t get me wrong having steak pretty much every night was good for me. Overall my vacation was great and I’m a pretty simple person to please. I didn’t need too much. Thank you Riu Naiboa!

Good purchase

Excellent service, excellent entertainments, awesome foods but should have more varieties. Very sweet employeers. Bed quality was terrible, room should have toiletries, iron and fridge should be fill every day. I was told it was going to be filled every 2 days and it was never filled , I also had a water leak in the bathroom ceiling. But other than that it was nice.

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.


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.
