We stayed at this resort for 1 week during hurricane season after hurricane Fiona had passed and were lucky that the hurricane didn't really do damage to the property, or at least you couldn't really tell. The property needs plenty of fixtures in the rooms. Our room was very outdated, chipped paint. It would of been preferable having the shower & tub enclosed in one space, than everything open space next to the beds which created excessive humidity throughout the whole room when the shower/tub were in use. Having stayed at Riu hotel's in the past in other counties, this one in particular lacked a bit of professionalism from the employees. Many times I did encounter arguments between employees while serving guests. Or speaking in their foreign language (which they should watch out since guest like myself are bilingual and understand) making negative comments about guests giving the resort a bad image. The beach at this resort was beautiful, well taken care of, staff were quick to clean the algee out of the sand and would usually do it in the early morning. The pool was big, pleasurable as well. They had 3 different pool sections, all clean. The property had a Riuland small section for children, it is a bit outdated and needs to be retouched painted. We made use of Splash waterpark. This waterpark is shared with the other Riu properties, its a 5 minute walk from each Riu property. The waterpark also needs to be retouched, seen alot of paint chipped off.

The staff was really amazing, the hotel is beautiful, but it needs some renovations, in my room the mirrors from the bath had black spots on them and the shower wasn't working properly. But i totally recommend the facility.

I have been to several Riu Palace hotels and this one was by far in the worst condition. It was very disappointing for me. The hotel itself and rooms need to be updated. Other than that, the staff is wonderful, the beach is beautiful and the food was average.

I would highly recommend. Lots of activities you can do and good vegetarian options as well. You just have to let chef know and they will make it for you.
