My husband and I were at the RIU Taino from December 30th 2006- January 6th 2007. We had an amazing time! I had read about the gardens being so lovely but I hadn't imagined how great they really were. We got to celebrate New Year's there and so they had closed all the A la Carte Restaurants and served lobsters...

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. We have travelled to other islands in the past so we had a good basis to compare this one with. We both would rate this hotel as a absolute average to...

My wife and I stayed at the Riu Taino from Dec. 10th thru the 17th. Let me start off by saying that my wife won the vacation, so we did not pay anything. You gotta love pop-up ads! Ultimately, we did not have a say as to where we were going or staying - the travel agency we won the...

We were there from Dec.7 to 14 ,2006. We were pleasantly surprised since we paid so little through a last minute travel site on the web. Room was a little musty but if you feel the constant humidity it's no surprise. It was always clean and everything worked well. Bed and pillows were hard but we have become accustomed to...

My wife and I returned for our 3rd visit in four years. We did not visit resort last year. The resort has definitely lost its appeal since our last visit. The beach remains the highlite of the resort. The Riu Melao has merged into the Taino, causing staffing and cleanup problems around the pool area. The pool bar needs painted---badly!...
