We went to the Riu Taino for my brothers wedding from January 13th -20th 2007. I must say the beach was fabulous with lots of beach chairs. The pools, rooms and restaurants were really clean.

Starting off, the hotel staff is great!!! The front desk staff is(especially Julio) wonderful and the cleaning crew was...

We just got back yesterday from the Riu Taino and had read many reviews on this resort prior to going. We had read extremely positive reviews and negative ones.
