Just returned from a 7 day all inclusive vacation at the RIU Bachata, Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. Middle aged couple (47 years old) and two teenagers (17) and (15). We had a fantastic stay, the staff in that resort were amazing and the service around was top notch. We stayed at the yellow building (rooms are from #1501...

The room was OK, although the beds were hard as stone. There are no elevators, we were on the third floor. There was a porter when we arrived but not when we left. It was clean and the maid did a great job. There is 110 power but the charger for my blackberry wouldn't fit the recessed outlets so I...

We travelled with friends and despite of the low mark for the hotel we had a fantastic two week break. My wife and I went to this hotel 13 tears ago and to be honest not a lot has changed, other than it is a lot busier now and the selection of food has got far worse. Rooms were ok...

I went to other Riu Hotels (Jamaica, Riviera Maya) before, and I picked a Riu because their food is usually good. I was disappointed. The most I give it is a 3 star hotel tops. I travelled with my two children. The room smelled very bad, I could breath in the mold. Even the drapery and lamps had mold all...

Firstly I am writing this review from the lobby of the hotel at 8am local time due to torrential rain for the 4 day out of 5 that we have been here - obviously not the hotels fault and they have dealt with the conditions pretty well tbh - the umbrella provided in the room is a god send. The...

I just got back from my vacation on March 17, We went Sunwing from Winnipeg direct which was great. Our tour guide Anthony on the bus ride to and from the airport was very friendly and knowledgeable and believe I asked him a lot of questions. It was a great first impression. On arrival to the hotel, they had an...
