    I usually stay at riu palace but tried this riu. It was very nice, very clean & the service was wonderful. We had breakfast with Jaqui as our server every morning, Abel made us comfortable on the beach, Bryan&Carlos were excellent beach staff. The beach was picture perfect&the water was refreshing. The pool water was actually HOT! Not at all what I expected for the pools. The food was very good. I will go back but it will be in the spring not as hot.

    A real 5 ⭐ hotel

    My husband and I just came back from Riu Latino and we had the most fabulous vacation. There's absolutely no negatives points we can find. From the check in to the check out. When we arrived at 11 am the room was not ready, we went to eat, and in the lobby there's a room with showers and you can change and then go to the pool or beach while your room is getting ready. The beach was awesome no sargassum, white soft sand and always long chair available, the pools, you have the choice of 5 different one, you want to relax / party / play water sports or be entertained by the activity crew you have the choice of the pool. The food was delicious at the buffet and I loved the fact that you had different station like for vegan, gluten free diet, fish, meat, pasta, Asian, mexican, always fresh fruits and vegetables. The rooms are so comfortable, super clean and the maids does a great job. I honestly recommend this hotel. It's without a doubt a real 5 ⭐.

    Terrible food - otherwise decent resort.

    I have been to 3-4 Riu’s excluding this one and this is probably my worst experience at Riu in terms of food. I wish I could say it was “average” at best but that would be a lie. It is awful. The three speciality restaurants are an absolute joke and each one worse than the last. The Japanese is all buffet, and all the rest were part buffet. The only decent meal was breakfast as the omelet's are good. The service at the front desk was also bad. We had a terrible check in (minus receiving a room “upgrade” that we waited hours for) and every time we had a question for the front desk we were met with attitude. When we asked if our room was ready (as it was past 3 pm aka check in time and we had been waiting since 10 am) we were told “it is impossible for us to know” .. huh?? Here’s the good: - waiters and bartenders were always friendly with good service - the resort itself is beautiful and the grounds are well kept and clean. You can tell it’s all brand new - rooms are nice and spacious - pools are great and lots of options for fun/party/quiet areas - drinks are decent (except if your getting wine then you might as well drink vinegar) Thankfully we came in the off season so we got a deal but if I paid full price I would have been very upset. There are better Riu’s out there - I wouldn’t recommend this one unless you’re ok with not eating or enjoying any meals all week.
