Amazing resort

I can't say anything bad about this resort. The food was amazing! We ate like Kings. The room had a mini bar fully stocked which was great. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were nice and the grounds beautiful. I great place to stay with family.

Good value Riu style!

Nice hotel for couple or family vacations. Nice pool areas and gardens. Wonderful breakfast buffets. Lunch buffet could be better. À La Carte restaurants difficult to go... Always full...
Usual old furniture Riu rooms.
Wonderful pull pubs with drinks made with real fruits!!!
The beach had a ruff sea to enter... We went on March so I don´t know if this happened because of the season...

Notice that in costa Rica you can´t smoke anywhere but in the street, not even in the hotel gardens or in the beach! and this goes for every hotel.

I would return!

Great location

Great location for couples and family friendly. The resort is beautiful. Its right on the beach, which is great. The staff are friendly and also good service. Food is okay, but no room service. The resort offers daily entertainment and also you can book activities from lobby area, which i highly recommend. There is a casino, night club, and small shops on property grounds. The beach area is nice and you can interact with locals which is nice.
