After our stay at the Riu Taino we will never again stay at another Riu Resort. The staff was not, and has not been accommodating or helpful. I have been trying to contact someone from there since I got home and have yet to hear back. I will try to break it down for you: We booked a deep sea...

We went to Punta Cana on the spur of the moment Feb 11-18, 2007 after seeing sale prices in our local newspaper. After checking Trip Advisor reviews our expectations were modest and we were pleased that the Riu Taino exceeded our expectations in almost all ways. We were greeted promptly on check in, and 5 minutes later were escorted to...

My Boyfriend and family stayed at the RIU TAINO from February 18th- 25th 2007. Perhaps it is because we had awful weather that we noticed so many problems with this resort. First, our room was falling apart. None of our doors functioned properly, cracked ceilings, and missing handles on almost all drawers. The matress was paper thin and the sheets...

Six of us, aged 48 -55, just returned on 3/3 after a 7-night stay at the Riu Taino. This was our 5th trip to Punta Cana in the last 5 years; each year we try a different resort, either 4-5 Apple, wherever we can get the best deal. I just had to send a review after reading previous reviews of...

I stayed at the Riu Taino on February 20th -27th with my husband, my parents, and my brother and his wife. We had an excellent time at the Dominican. It was the first time I've stayed at a Riu hotel, and I must say it is 'top notch'. Here's my overall review from the flight to the food to the...

Our stay at the Riu Taino was great. Unfortunately the weather was'nt, but really, no one can be at blame for that. I first have to say that the Dominican people deserve so much respect for the hard work all of them put into making our experience the best it could be. I just fell in love with all of...

I just arrived home from the Riu Taino yesterday and had a wonderful time. I'd like to address some of the things I read in past reviews about this hotel. The rooms are a little dated so I wouldn't call this a 5 star but the slightly shabby rooms did not affect my holiday one bit. They are very clean...

My husband, my son and I stayed at the Riu Taino from February 15 to the 22. I was very dissappointed for many reasons. Firstly, after arriving late (we had a late flight) we were dropped off at the Riu Naiboa (next door to the Taino) and had to walk over to the Taino. Once we arrived at the Taino...
