My wife and I just came back from a week at the resort on 7/29/13. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are well kept and resort is very clean! We attended my friends wedding there and was very impressed with how it all unfolded. Entertainment each night and great pool and beach made it all the better!...

At first we were very weary about heading here for vacation with friends and family. Read the TA reviews every day before departing and read some very negative comments which made us worried.

We booked our vacation via MLT Delta Vacations. They did an excellent job! Hats off to Robin V., Teresa, Cynthia, and Valerie.

The resort has no elevators & u have to be traveling with at least 20 bags for the bellboys to help you. The 3 a la carte restaurants were always booked out.

My boyfriend and I came here to attend Sumfest. We were looking for comfort, good food and great proximity to the event. The Riu provided us with all three.
