First day at the resort and I was already to turn around and fly back home. The room was extremely uncomfortable to sleep in there was no air condition they had that blocked when you tried to turn the air on in the room it would off. We called the front desk and they stated that only the fan portion on the unit will work. My husband and I had to literally sleep with the balcony door open to even catch a breeze to try to get any kind of sleep. Now on to the food. The food was not pleasing at all. There is only one restaurant open and the food is HORRIBLE and the snack bar is no better. You only have a choice of a cheeseburger, hot dog and fries oh then one day they ran out of buns and served us a cheeseburger on white bread. No wet bar in the room it was only supplied with 2 bottle of water and 2 pepsi. If you wanted a drink you would have to walk over by the pool during the day because the bar in the hotel didn't open until 6pm at night. Please invest a little more money and stay at another resort. This one will leave you disappointed

First day here, but already not that good as per previous reviews: 1. There is no rum in mini bar, as it used to be. 2. It is a birthday of my daughter today, several times mentioned it at the reception and in the restraunt, but requested birthday cake (as it is ususaly provided in the hotels) never come. 3. Maybe it will be improved, but now there is nothing to eat. Had just 1 lunch and 1 dinner, but the choice is very poor, the worst comparing even with 3 stars hotels in Egypt.

First time visiting this resort, vert cheap option for those on low budget, however, customer service is something they need to work on. -From front desk trying to argue with my wife just because she let the hand sanitizer drop on the floor to ask personal question that are not involved with their work. - Waitresses and everybody that works in the restaurant ( the only one with the same options for 3 meals a day) starring at my wife like I was not there. - Room service was not requested and they got in to the room while I was taking a shower, I yelled that it was busy and still got into the bath when I was there, I’ve read previous reviews on regards to the towels and We found out that is the same case, towels smelled like they were not clean.

Arriving was probably the easiest check in I have ever dealt with. Keep in mind this is during covid-19, but service was fantastic! We had many good servers and staff. Arias, Franklin, Ulie, Anni and at at the beach bar, Javier. They made the trip. There were many changes made because of covid-19, but we adapted and had a fantastic time. Very few complaints and none of them are major. I wish there was snacks or food available at the beach bar, and I wish the trip down the street didn't involve the business pressuring you into their shops. Bring ear plugs for nights when guests party outside! The food at the buffet is excellent, but it's usually a lot of the same dishes. I tried to create things of my own with what was available. For example making a breakfast bagel sandwich in the morning. But, it's very clean, it's a fantastic place to stay, and for the price you can't beat the location. The staff does a great job of keeping the beach and the hotel in great shape. The manager is very friendly and readily available if you want to talk. Our room was comfortable and the rooms are cleaned daily. They are constantly working to keep things looking nice!!

Can’t recommend this hotel for staying. Riu Naiboa doesn’t deserves 4-stars: - The linen isn’t clean. There’re so much stain on bedding (photo attached). And after 11 nights staying here linen has not been replaced even once. - It seems beach towels are not washed. They are dried and immediately give away to other campers. Photos with stains and another person’s hair on a “new” towel - attached. Flagrantly. Even when I’ve tried to replace it - EACH beach towel has stains. - Room’s bar initially goes with a free water and Pepsi. For 11 days staying either a water or any other drinks hasn’t been checked/added. - Food is average, can’t find it delicious and tasty. Several times sandwiches/sausage/cheese were from yesterday and not fresh. - A mud is partially on a pool’s bottom. Should be cleaned every several weeks. Just FYI: I’ve been in 20+ countries across a globe (America/Europe/Asia).

Dear vladimirterehoff, Thank you for sharing your experience at our Hotel Riu Naiboa. We are very concerned by your comments about cleanliness in your room. Our cleaning team provides room cleaning 7 x per week and linen change every 3 days if not requested otherwise. We would have liked to have been informed about your inconveniences during your stay so our team members could have helped you to enjoy a more pleasant holiday. Regarding the food, we understand that this is one of the most important aspects in an all-inclusive hotel. Therefore it is very disappointing to read that we could not reach your personal taste on this occasion. Again, we are sorry that we were not able to provide you the holiday you were looking for but hope that you will give us another chance to provide you with a more positive experience!
