    Great big resort....Next time not during spring break.

    We really enjoyed this resort. We are a married couple in our 50s. Maybe a little bit to busy with all the spring breakers there but since a big resort, you could get away from them! We were happy to be in building 6 since close to sports bar , 30+ swim pool , lobby and eating places. Suleica was our maid and she did a very good job in cleaning our room! The guy who stocked the frig and booze did a very good job keeping it full. Plenty of water also. They were plenty of places to eat. We enjoyed the morning breakfast buffet every day, Had different choices for lunch time. They had good grilled food down by the beach every day...Mexican food out by all the other eating places later in the day. David and Uriel did a very good job at keeping our drinks filled at the pool , The bartenders down by the beach at the pool were kept very busy with all the spring breakers.. They worked very hard and did a good job. Guatemala and Yahana also did a very good job in the sports bar. We really enjoyed our stay at this resort and will definitely go back!

    Party Resort Extraordinaire

    If I could give this resort 6 stars I would!! Hands down the best resort I have ever been to. As 20 somethings, we especially loved the pool parties in the day! The music was great & the entertainment team was killing it. This is the PERFECT resort for a spring break/girls getaway/couples trip. The bartenders are so friendly & fun, totally welcoming of young-adult guests. They remembered our orders from the first day we arrived!! We’re beach people, so I really loved that there are enough chairs to still snag one mid afternoon! Pool on the other hand... get there at the crack of dawn! The food was amazing, and they did a special meal for New Years Eve complete with a champagne toast. There was a NYE party in the theatre & a lovely firework display over the water just after midnight. I don’t have a single bad thing to say about this resort. The staff, the food, the accommodations, the amenities, the entertainment... it was all on point !!

    Great resort, but not during spring break

    We were there during US spring break and it was very busy! Our room was in building 1 which was away from the noise, and furthest from the beach, but close to the main buffet and main square. The pools were nice, beach was great besides all the vendors trying to sell you stuff. Food was good, buffet had a great selection. The a la carte restaurants were lacking, although the Italian one was food. Most were buffet style and you couldn’t make reservations so there was sometimes a wait, especially for bigger groups. Drinks were excellent and the bar tenders were fabulous. The water slides were fun, and very fast. All piercings & rings are required to come out before going on the slides. The Riu themed parties were fun, lots of people. It’s very loud in the rooms that are located close to the foam party pool area. They had parties 3 times per week. Rooms were nice and clean. They all have a patio or balcony. There is a liquor dispenser in the room along with beer, pop & water in the fridge. The wifi wasn’t great, with 2 of us in the room trying to connect 2 phones and 2 laptops it wouldn’t work. Beautiful grounds and views of lovers beach. We even saw whales one day. It’s a nice 45 minute walk into town along the beach.

    Never go here during the month of March which is spring break for all the US College and Universities

    The resort is huge.... Building 7 is great as its by the nice pool by the beach.... however, spring breakers took over and it was soooo loud, many very obnoxious, some nice kids.... but the Foam pool themed parties.... they would wheel passed out kids in wheelchairs, back to their rooms!!! It's just a huge party! Some of our group had been there before but not in March and it was great they said! The staff work very hard, and they know us "older" clients are bothered by all this noise..... but they needed more control. The first night was ridiculous! all night parties and creaming and banging doors! Drunk kids walking errrr staggering all over the place!
