We had an absolutely wonderful time. This RIU is a bit older than some that I have stayed in though. They give you and actual key not a key card. You are also given a lock mechanism and a key to the safe. That is also dated. Not a problem though. Everything else was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were very clean and large. We stayed in room 3033 and it was very quiet. We did face the sister resort not the pool, but I didn't care. I was only in my room to sleep and get ready. If you want to see the sites, walk around. Don't complain about the view from the room. The service is excellent also. The do not by any means skimp on drinks. They give you lots of booze and it is every where (room, beach, etc.). We didn't want to be tied to a time for reservations at the restaurant, so we stuck with the buffet and it was very good. There was lots of different variety each night. Manuel was wonderful. Ask for him. You won't regret it. The beach here is extremely clean and the water is warm and refreshing. My husband and I swam in the water for the better part of the day. Don't listen to the negative reviews. Go with an open mind and enjoy your trip. I know we sure did!
