Has anyone else booked the new Riu?

I have booked the Riu Emerald Bay for a week in July for our family of 6.

I am so worried it will not befinished....Have paid a huge down payment so can not cancel....

Anyone else worried?

I'm certain we can believe danelf. The whole building looked UP last November, was looking WELL along by late March, so I would guess any finishing touches now would amount to filling the pool(s), stocking the bars, hiring maids, and dismantling the cement plant on site! :) Those workers will probably move on to the Torrenza Towers soon, no? ...lol...

I'm not worried. I will only book when it opens.

The reports do look good though. Seems better than what happened at Barcelo Cayo Santa Maria(which I booked only when it opened) and much better than the Iberostar Laguna Azul. At least your giving yourself a month leeway.

I can't wait to see it finished! It is our first real 5 Star and it should bring much business to our local economy, year around.

You should not be worried. I am booked for October so I can't wait to hear your report. I booked at Riu Vallarta 5 month after they opened and it was fine.

The price keeps dropping. $829 plus tax from Vancouver. Lets see if it drops more.

Now it's $799 plus tax from Vancouver with ocean view. Cheaper to live at the Riu than at home.
