Just returned from Riu Taino, and am surprised that this hotel has a 5 star rating. The rooms are very outdated with thread bare sheets. The food was ok if you can survive on pizza and french fries for a week. They also have hot dogs but we dont like hot dogs and every day there was pasta with left...

We arrived at the Naiboa on November 1st and stayed until the 8th. This is not the first time we stayed at a Riu resort. We stayed at one in Cuba and in Puerto Plata. We love the resorts for the food, service and cleanliness. But out of the three of them this one is on the bottom of our...

What a wonderful relaxing time my husband and I had. We just returned, Nov. 5. Eight nights in heaven! The food was good. The staff were friendly, the beach was glorious! We lay on the beach everyday, swam in the waves. Just a wonderful relaxing time for 2 very stressed over worked 50 year olds. The resort was very clean,...

Hello: Husband and I just back from 8 days at the Riu Taino. I have left a review for the Riu Naiba - we checked out of that hotel and into the Taino. My husband is handicap and with cane so the first property is not on the beach and very hard for anyone with a walking problem. The Taino...

Hello: Husband and I spent 9 days here at the RIU Resort. We checked into the Riu Naiboa and checked right out about an hour later and checked into the hotel IN FRONT of the Naiboa - the Riu Taino. The problem with this hotel is not the property, the price, the staff - the whole compound of RIU is...

We are from the United States and were definetly the minorities, and if you don't speak Spanish then you will have trouble communicating especially with most other tourists. The staff for the most part speaks very good english, and will help you at...

Me (17) and my boyfriend (22) travelled to the Riu Taino on the 31st august. The flight took about 8 hrs 40 from London Gatwick. It was a very tiring day of travelling! The heat when you step off the plane is exasperating. Its like stepping into an oven! We then had to queue for a while to get our...

We booked this vacation through Apple Vacations. I would highly recommend booking through them, as they took very good care of us, and their package prices were very good. The Riu Naiboa is part of the 5 hotel Riu Complex, which is one of the nicest ones in Punta Cana. The other 4 hotels have a beach, but the Naiboa...

We stayed at the Naiboa 8/23 - 8/27. Coming from the US I knew what to expect. I had been in the DR the year before. I made sure I had plenty of water and small bills for tipping. I also hit the ATM before leaving since there are none at the hotels or airport that could be found. Punta...
