We just came back from 2 weeks Oct 1 st .... Hotel is beautiful and is not as big as the other Riu's. it is very modern but very nice and clean.
The 4 a la cartes resturants are disappointing. The presentation of the food and service is great but the food not so good. We went to the buffet. They have everything you can think of and it is so beautifully set up. It is the best buffet we have ever seen. The service is great and even though the staff does not speak great english they will find someone who does and they will get you what you want. The rooms are very nice modern and clean. Nothing to complain about.
The beach is beautiful. They have a gym not very big rather disappointing as this is a new hotel and they have no weights which I found very odd.
Anyway go and see for yourselve and you will not be disappointed.
