We had a Junior suite and it was not up to par. It smelled of mildew, there was some mold on the ceiling in the corner over the tub. The tv didn’t work nor were we able to log into Netflix because of connection issues. The maintenance guy came and switched out the tv and it still didn’t work. Only two channels were in English and they were very poor in viewing. The room had so many mosquitoes that me and my husband slept under the covers because we were bitten up so bad. The room was always freezing cold no way to turn down the air. The restaurants were horrible everyday the same thing and it wasn’t good. Staff were not friendly and stares at the people making them uncomfortable. I’ve traveled many places but this trip was by far one of the worst ones.

Recently stayed at the Riu Palace Bavaro with my girlfriend for 4 days Wed-Sunday. On the Friday afternoon we attended the Pink Party located between the 5 resorts. Once the party ended we caught security trying to steal my girlfriends phone. Someone nearby our table grabbed it mistakenly and returned it to security and they told us that they had just given it to them. Upon us asking multiple times they refused and said they had no phones, then the person who turned it in went up to them (visibly annoyed) and spoke Spanish to them. They still refused to give the phone back until my girlfriend exclaimed she would give $100 dollars to anyone who gave her phone back...all of the sudden her phone appeared from behind their area "out of thin air". She grabbed it back and didn't reward them obviously. This entire time I had my phone out calling hers and once we got hers back I proceeded to put my phone back into the back pocket of my backpack, security was around us and watched me do this. Then as we were nearly the last to leave we were all corralled out of a small pathway, being guided and bumped in the crowd with security directly behind, once I returned the room I noticed that they had gone in the back of my bag and taken my phone out. I complained to the front desk two days in a row and all they did was send me the same exact photo of the "lost and found" from the Pink Party meanwhile another event occurred Saturday night which would imply that photo should have changed.
