The RIU is for you!
From the time you arrive outside, enter the enormous, amazing lobby to check in & arrive to your room, the hotel staff is very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are neat, clean & spacious. The pool area is awesome and the food was delicious at the Studio 50 Bar lounge along with some night entertainment. This is a must stay place.

8/10 Very good

Great stay
I experienced a great stay at this Riu hotel. Everyone was very friendly from check-in to the gift shop to the restaurants. Everything was very reasonably priced. Tours and drivers were easily accessible with hotel staff. My only issue was a scheduled 2 hour power outage - I just found it a little uncomfortable to be in my room with no power, phone or water, even if for a short time. I did express my concerns to the front desk. Overall I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
