    Loved it

    Went for a big family trip, 18 of us and it was great. The hotel is clean and the employees were awesome, always ready to help! The kids program was excellent, my son (6) had a fabulous time with the activities everyday and on stage in the evenings. I will definitely go back to Riu hotels in the future

    Will always come back here

    I’ve just returned from my third trip to this hotel, second solo and I enjoy it more and more every time. This hotel is perfect for all ages due to it’s relaxing vibe with the added bonus of the entertainment team who bring the fun, with the nightlife just a little way down the road. The bartenders will do their very best to learn your name and regular drinks and always make good conversation with you. The food in the restaurant is the only down fall (but i am a fussy eater). I will be returning again once the hotel has been renovated and fully recommend people visit

    Riu-Sunwing-WestJet Vacations plunge you into a headache.

    If you are looking for excellent service, luxury accommodations, delicious foods, relaxation by the sun, being served with dignity and respect Riu Resorts deliver none of these. Don't be hosed by Sunwing-WestJet-Riu vacations packages, you are sure to drown in dismay and dicomfort.

    Avoid this hotel!!!

    Wish I could even give it 0!!!!! Horrible experience!!! Am still at the hotel begging to be transferred to a better hotel with no help!!! Celebrating 5 year anniversary. We started our vacation at couples swept away 10/10 but we wanted to extend as we loved it so much! We saw the reviews here and decided to give this hotel a chance the worst decision ever!!!!! Please what ever you do do not come here. Room had mold smell was changed to another one a bit better still with the smell….. food except for breakfast everything is 2/10 more of a cruise vibe!!! You might as well see more places with a cruise…. Omg people actually pee at the beach here … it smells like pee so you can’t enjoy the beach…. We asked for hotel transfer they would not help … we were told to go back to the place where we booked when contacted they offered 5 different hotels but can’t change during the weekend…. Basically stuck here with no help!!!!!!! What a mess at this point we want to go home what a terrible experience!!!!! Am warning who ever is reading do not go here!!!

    Simply the best

    This hotel was everything you could ask for and more. Very clean and well kept over the whole complex. The staff from cleaners gardeners waiters and managers were all so friendly and helpful, especially Oneil and Ruen at the Welcome lobby bar. Breakfast lunch and evening buffets had every choice of food you could ask for. The only down side was, i wasn’t to impressed with the food at the 3 restaurants ie Steakhose, Luigi and the Kulinarium.
