Dont waste your money going to this hotel. I will tell you one thing. the hotel iteslf is beautiful but its too big for the land it is situated on. Furthermore, the sun disappears by 4pm. the pool is freezing. the beach is nonexistent. literally, its all rocks and fake sand. they were actually pumping sand into the other riu next door when we got there. fake sand i tell you! fake beach! the food wasnt the worst i must say but it wasnt delicious either. the drinks werent bad just dont piss off the capitain or else he’ll stop serving you as he did us. horrible hotel. go check out the sheraton for a nice beach at a much better price.
