I am so soured by my bad experience, I refuse to rate any part as good.
I purchased an item for my girlfriend and left it wrapped in tissue paper in a ziplock bag on a table. It disappeared. I contacted housekeeping supervisor and was told it was impossible that it was stolen/thrown away. Not satisfied with that answer I asked to speak to the hotel manager, I'm still waiting. Terrible customer service experience which will cost this chain my business forever.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS A RIU BRAND
The location was good, the pool and beachfront was nice.
This hotel is a standard two star hotel. I had maintenance in my room each day of my stay for a problem, safe repeatedly would not open, A/C would not cut off, toilet backed up. It was just a horrible stay. Some of the food was cold and not labeled so with allergies I could not eat a lot of things. A lot of the staff did not speak even a little English so when you asked a question that just smiled. I spoke to the manager and the best he could do is give me an email to report the issues when I return. I think you get the picture...so needless to say the hotel stay part of my birthday was ruin
Beautiful Vacation - somewhat pricey
The food was excellent, beach was great. Better than baby beach! Room was great but could be a little cleaner. We we're transferred from 6th to 18th floor and it was much better. Amazing view. No kids!
Pool and beach was loud for too long- I think it went from 11am to 6pm... This place was expensive for $600/night. Loved every not of it except the price. Booking the restsurabts was a pain bc the only way you can reserve is waiting in line for 30-45 minutes and you aren't guaranteed and table.
It's really worth it
The room service menu is too short and simple, bathroom could be better
