I have stayed in a number of RUI hotels and this was very typical but not the best. I found the Hotel a little tired, but it was clean and facilities were as expected. I personally found the hotel noisy, especially by the pool bar. Food was plentiful but very samish, we used the alternative restaurants every other day but...

My friend and I visited this resort for four nights back in march. It was such a nice environment! There was a red flags all the days we were there for the beach, and it rained, but we still had so much fun. Marco, a bartender was amazing! The staff tries hard to make sure you have a great time....

Also there is a tipping culture but don't let that put you...

Nice place for the money. Beach was nice. Great scenery. Food was pretty good. Place could use some updating though. Able to use beach and most facilities at other adjacent RIU resorts. Great place if you just want to sit at beach and relax

After reading a lot of negative reviews I was worried about coming here but it was absolutely fine. The hotel is about 40 mins from the airport, check in was a bit manic but quick and our bags arrived within 10 mins. Room was fine and was always clean. Nice big beds. The pool area is fine, plenty of sunbeds...
