We traveled during increasing COVID 19 restrictions but the hotel was very well maintained. A reduced service was offered and we enjoyed our time at this resort. After returning we tested negative for COVID so I can assume the conditions at RIU are protective to the guests.

Fanatstic hotel, check in was easy. Due to covid check in is 4pm however they had a room available and let us check in at 10am. We were given out all inclusive wrist bands upon arrival. They allocate you times to eat in a 1 hour window due to covid, which is good as it maintains a good social distancing level. Rooms are clean, you are provided pool towels also. 1.5l bottles of water Breakast, lunch, snacks and dinner. Entertainment Pool ammenities. The beach is an 5 min walk down the hill. The hotel doesn't have a shop to buy anything but at the bottom of the road there are shops.
