I stayed at this hotel for 14 nights and felt this was not a 5 star hotel as rated by the Riu company. In my opinion it's more like a 3-4 star. The health and safety was appalling I fell twice on wet and slippery tiles and on steps. I was aware of other guests also having falls/ accidents in...

Where to start! My friend had stayed at one of the Riu Palaces down the way and said you could visit all the hotels so I decided to save some money (big mistake through Cheap Carribean.com and booked the Riu Naiboa.).
