We stayed at RIU for fourteen days...7 Jan. 21st. Jan
As you can see from my rating I am not bias, but being honest.
The pool was not large enough for the number of people using it, therefor it seemed unclean even though I know the staff were doing maintenance every night(I wouldn't use it).
The food was very good and nobody got sick from it or the booze which IS watered down.
A good thing or there would be a lot of wrecks around by lunch.
The nightly shows were super-- the best we have seen in our 14 years of traveling to DR
The three resorts are wheelchair accesable but a scooter would be better--I know I brought my own!
The staff went the extra mile to make our stay memorable.
My wife says the beach wasn't very good but went every day.
In think having a safe in your room is a good thing BUT I'm not sure you would need one here.
The maids are honest and pleasant.
This is a good resort for the handicapped , only the beach is out of bounds
