c quaint hotel is the first time I'm in a riu and this is the last-shame on you-firstly riu hotel is infested with fungi, humiditee in rooms with no common sense, this is the first few times I I'm having so, this is a 2 eoiles and not 4, besides they are the suposer demolish the end of the saison.nous have try to make us up but the follow-grader was worse than the rooms . j Bouquer to have five or more pairs of dolars 15000.00 throw a water. I want to say that this is my 14th trips south and I never leave negative comments but this is vrament inaceptable for a 4stars - riu never -

Positive :

The beach is probably the highlight of this hotel. The food a lot of variety, both for lunch and dinner. Themed buffet, entertainment very present. We have access to Riu Bambu and Taino, which provides more choice of pools and restaurant. Pool of Cana, very quiet and calm

Negative :

Rooms in need of renovations, especially bathrooms. Quaint hotel in general but we must own dinner all week at the same time: 18:30 or 20:30, which is a drawback for some people.

Positive :

No.

Negative :

Old hotel, poorly maintained absolutely not worthy to call a Riu and certainly not 4 *. The elevator doors have closed altogether on my wife. The elevators often fell down. There was an unbearable smell of damp in our room. The first room we were offered had not been cleaned properly, the mini bar was empty and there were bottles of liquor started lying around. The coffee machine was still defective. The beach was far away. The staff did not smile despite our generous tips. Repeatedly asked for help to our Sunquest agent on site but could not help us. It would be returned to Montreal after three days. It was not on vacation. y'avait always something. It has not been entitled to all services that was in the description of the hotel when booking, as a server on the beach, hire a parasol, far from the beach, no coffee maker in room. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone

We went with family to this hotel from March 8 to 15, 2009. We got what we asked (quiet room on the 2nd floor). Room with old-fashioned but very clean nice balcony. Mini fridge stocked every 2 days. Safety deposit box included. Buffet very well every day. We could arrive at any time of day at the beach and there were always chairs available. Shows very well. We recommend it!

Positive :

Very beautiful long beach with coconut trees and a permanent breeze refreshed us. The sea water is clean and clear with a nice sandy bottom. On the temperature was ideal for 14 days and ranged between 27 and 30 day and 22 to 25 at night. I liked the accessibility to the two other hotels RIU Taino and Bambu where you can lunch and dine at several locations and snacks are everywhere on the site and access to consumption around the edge of the beach . The construction of a sidewalk along 4 RIU along the beach is a plus and it has safe access for walking on the seaside in the evening. Street vendors on the beach are not harassing and are well controlled by Riu's staff. The pool is clean, large with enough space around. The food is very good and varied fruits vegetables meats desserts etc.. For my part I have found that eating eggs gave me stomach cramps. My wife had no problem digesting and ate what she wanted except the eggs. The beverage dispenser and fridge full of various beverages and the free safety deposit box were well appreciated. The GO and the hotel staff are friendly. The clientele is international, European France Germany Spain, several English-Canadian Quebecois little and almost no Americans.

Negative :

The rooms have a 3/4 bed and 1 single bed. As the single bed is not the same height as the bed 3/4 could not stick them to a bed because we are two. We requested a room with a double bed. The answer is to take a junior suite for an extra $ 40 U.S. per day or be downgraded to a smaller room with double bed at no extra charge or compensation for decommissioning. The fan was noisy and had a high speed gear shift was broken. The lampshades were broken, did not provide air conditioning. Iln'y was no fitted sheet for the bed and we found ourselves in part directly on the mattress if you moved. The mattresses were filthy and veillots with mold around the perimeter of the box spring. This is not acceptable for a 4 *. Although in general there is no noise between midnight and 7:30, a few times it was awakened in the middle of night by customers who do not respect others and sang or made noise in the hallways. The rooms are not soundproof. At the bar, on the day of the year, the hotel ran out of champagne glasses and they took dirty cuts other customers to continue to serve champagne at midnight countdown. In the late evening they only rinse water glasses when they lack the glasses to serve drinks. I must be a bit stingy but I found an inexpensive excursions, ranging from 80 usd to 150 usd each for trips 4 to 8 hours each. The hotel is newly built in 1992 but I think the maintenance is limited to redo the paint. Plusieus chairs for the pool and beach are broken and not replaced which can cause accidents. In fact the concepts of security are not developed in this country. I think the rooms at a 3 * rating. People do not go the a la carte restaurant ITALIANO, saying they prefer the buffet that is better

The reception staff, polite and friendly and some servers registrants tables during meals. Food varied and tasty, good

In 9 1/2 years, the building has greatly faded. The furniture is worn, as in the lobby and in the rooms. The bathroom was old, bath and some chipped tiles patio door that does not close. The lack of smiles from several employees

Positive :

The hotel was very clean. The food was very good at à la carte restaurant and the buffet. There was not a wide variety parcontre. The hosts were very friendly and the staff in general too. We could communicate in French with almost everyone, if not, it was English. The beach was beautiful.

Negative :

The disco was not busy so there was not much atmosphere. We were unable to book Steak House all week trying again. We were the only Quebec on the site as it is a European complex. The pants were mandatory for men at the buffet. In general, these are just details and our stay was great!
