The beach and weather was amazing. The cleaning staff and the waiters were very sweet and really took care of us. However the front desk was horrible to deal with. It took them almost an hour to do our simple check in. We asked repeatedly throughout our 4 night stay that we wanted a late check out and everytime were told to just ask at 11am on the day of check out. The day of check out they told us we should have asked and paid for late check out sooner even though we were down at the front desk by 9:30am. Dealing with front desk was always draining and tedious the entire trip. We avoided it as much as possible. There are better resorts in this area.

The Japanese restaurant and the breakfast buffet were good. The bathroom in the room needs to be upgraded. It was old and stained. The linen wasn’t white enough, kind of yellowish.

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in November. Here are our pros & cons of the resort: Pros: - Staff is AMAZING! Bartenders and servers were so fantastic. Even though it was busy at the resort we never waited longer than 2 minutes for a drink - Location is great close bars, nightlife, and shopping - Layout of the resort is nice and everything is quickly accessible - Beach is very nice and close to infinity pools Cons: - Food is not good. Breakfast and lunch are especially severely lacking and made us pretty sick. Dinner is ok but still not very good. This is the main reason we would not stay again. I'm not sure how people stay here for 7-10 days and eat the food - Property is a lot older and run down than it looks in the photos, a lot of areas seem to be not well maintained. Having stayed at Riu Dunamar (a newer property) previously, this was a huge downfall we did not expect - Room was just old and run down (but it was clean) - The way the resort stands, the sun is completely blocked around 3pm which isn't the resorts fault, but just something we noticed

This was our 43rd time at Riu Hotels We tried anything you can think of Dreams Ziva Bahia’s Barcleo Catalonia But there’s no comparison to the Riu Hotels I don’t care if you are in Jamaica or Los Cabo’s Mexico It’s just amazing

This was indicated on a few different sites (including their own) that this was a 5-star resort. We’ve stayed at a couple of other 5-stars in Mexico and this was not a 5-star. The drinks were good and the entertainment was decent. The food however caused everyone in our party to get traveller’s diarrhea. This could happen anywhere but one would think less likely at 5-star. They also came in to spray for bugs while we were still in the room. We asked if they could come back when we weren’t there and they said it was government mandated. They also said the spray was non-toxic (lol). I wouldn’t recommend this place if you’re looking for a 5-star experience.
