You get what you pay for!
The price we paid was around $100/night/person. The food was good but nothing over the top great. The steakhouse was closed on random nights and had a 2 hour wait one of the nights we tried to go. The habachi place was underwhelming. The buffet was exactly just that. A wide variety of food. The room was very comfortable and clean. The mini bar was restocked every 2 days. The cleaning was thorough every day. The AC and fan made the room very comfortable to sleep in. No discomfort or troubles sleeping. The bars were always staffed with friendly bartenders and never had to wait too long for a drink. The drinks were usually good and strong too. The pools and beach were very relaxing and there always seemed to be some open chairs at one or the other. The RIU pool party was fun and exciting to go at least once. The casino was a huge disappointment. Very small and very intrusive type staff, intrusive might be a poor choice of words but I was followed around asking if I needed anything to drink several times. I wasn’t there longer than 15-20 minutes. Overall had a good stay and was worth the money. I would definitely visit again. I would want to check out the other RIU resorts in the same area next time to switch it up.
