Great Adult Family Vacation
Beautiful property with a pristine beach...no stones or seaweed on the beach (except after a storm). Fine white sand & warm water - we experienced both calm seas and some pretty intense wave action within 5 days. The food was plentiful and pretty good ... there is something for everyone - carnivores and vegetarians alike. The breakfast buffet was full of fresh fruit and any breakfast food you want. The a la carte restaurants at dinnertime were a nice break from the crowds and the echo of the huge room, but the food was pretty much what you get on the buffet, except cooked to order. The drinks were plentiful and of mixed quality. They were generous with the alcohol but the mixers were uniformly too sweet, which is a bummer for me b/c my go-to drink on vacations like this are frozen mango margaritas or daiquiris, but the mix tasted like popsicles. The wine was very mediocre, but fun to have a mimosa with breakfast! Stick to simpler drinks like gin & tonic or mojitos, which they do really well. The quiet side of the resort (west?) is further from the beach and the action at the pools is tamer (loud music and excitement on the east side), and it is near the water slides which are SOOO fun (closed for maintenance on Wednesdays). The West side buffet is smaller but nice, and the outside eating area is lovely. There are no options for late night food (other than maybe nachos at the bar), so plan accordingly. The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful.

Party Riu
While it was overall clean place, it was busy. If you are looking for a truly relaxing vacation I would look elsewhere. Between all the visitors, music, parties; and shows it’s like a Vegas stay with something always going on. Lots of variety of food but sometimes the quality isn’t always there. Got an upgrade but had to pay the front desk staff a decent tip if I wanted it. The bed was hard and had a couple of rough nights of sleep. Lots of slamming of doors and screaming throughout the night.

Property was fine and was enjoyable. The language barrier was a bit frustrating at times. Most of the staff didn't speak or comprehend english all that well.

So I watched quite a few YouTube videos before booking this hotel and knew that was more of a party resort so that's what I was looking for. The hotel is very big. The rooms are as pictured on YouTube. The rooms are clean. the Mini bar is stocked with soda water and beer. They do have a spigot of 4 types of liquor in the room. There are several pools around the resort. There is one pool in particular that you will see most people gathering at and that is the party pool as they call it. The food was just OK for me. The Japanese and the Italian restaurant were good. You could definitely skip the breakfast the breakfast is not good . I survived off the jerk chicken hut the entire 5 days as that was a guarantee to be good and it was. The rooms are clean but I have to say the hallways and the stairwell could be kept a little bit more clean. There was some trash in the hallways and I did see some vomit. The rooms at night are very hot. The AC was not working. The refrigerator does not get cold. Old. I was definitely hot in the rooms when trying to sleep at night so just be aware of that. The nightly shows are entertaining. The pink party is definitely worth going to. The beach party - good luck trying to get on the beach it was overcrowded when we tried to go. The drinks are definitely a bit water down compared to staying at another another more pristine resort with top shelf liquor.. It is an all inclusive so you get what you pay for with the drinks and foo
