My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights in mid-January and really enjoyed it. It's within an easy five minute walk of the beach, and grocery stores and shops (any direction). The staff at the Riu were very kind and helpful. The hotel was quiet, the room was clean and the grounds impeccable. The food (buffet) was good and plentiful. We had half board, so had breakfast and supper. I believe all-inclusive is available. Snacks from the local grocery store or cafes were more than enough to get us through the day. We loved sitting out on the balcony in the late afternoon and evening. We were on the 2nd floor near the middle of the hotel (room 220). It got a little warm in the room mid-morning with the sun but not bad. We could see the (almost) nightly shows from our balcony - not our goal but some were fun to watch, and they were always wrapped up by 10pm or so. We purchased wifi, and though it's technically only available in the lobby we could get online from our room or the balcony without much trouble. The only thing that bothered us at all was the cigarette smoke from time to time - guests are allowed to smoke on their balconies (or if they weren't allowed, they did anyway) and on the grounds. Otherwise, we would be very happy to stay here again.
