Just returned from a week at the Riu Mambo (2/24 - 3/4) and was generally impressed. Positives: 1) Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. No issues with the air conditioning, hot water, or anything else. The friend I traveled with had problems with the toilet, but after alerting the staff, it was fixed right away. Back patio, maid service, mini-bar,...
