    We spent 1 week with 4 teenagers (11-13 -15-16). The big waves were a must for everybody. For swimming, watching the kite surfer’s shows ( up to 70 when very windy) and also have a cool breeze when we were chilling on the nice beach. A lot of chairs and shady places . Walking on the beach to do to Cabarete city for shopping or having diner on the beautiful beach was also cool. Cabarete is safe place to walk with friendly dominicans. The resort is small. The rooms could be refresh and the pictures do not reflect the reality. Check in was just ok. More staff could be on the floor when a bus is arriving. Food is good, everybody find something good to eat. The 3 a la carte restaurants were great and we had a good service . Our favorite one was the Italien close to the beach. You can also eat burgers, french fries, onion rings, hot dogs at the snack bar during the day. Theres is only one big bar but perhaps they have two small mobile bars with friendly staff. We went to the gym...without windows and a little bit hot even with air conditionning. Animation is poor. We saw better to other resorts. A cost effective solution for family vacation. PS. Go to the Esso gas station in front of the resort if you want to get more water for your room, two small bottles is not enough for four people. They also have beer and good wine since you do not get any beer in the room. There is also more ambiance there at night than at the discotheque....

    Pleasantly surprised

    Resort staff are absolutely amazing. So helpful. Initially we were placed above the kitchen. We requested another room and were pleasantly surprised by the room on 2400. Main floor, close to resort amenities. Lovely beach, best to swim/jump waves in the morning. Very windy in the afternoon so recommend leave the waves for kite surfers. Buffet was good, lots of variety. Speciality restaurants- Melt was our favourite. The activity team - absolutely amazing. Always engaging with vacationers. Drinks were delicious! Housekeeping- excellent. Front desk staff helpful. Too many staff to name but they all deserve recognition.

    Found it to be a Average all inclusive hotel. Let's start with the Cons: 1) A few small gnats found in bathroom. 2) Housecleaning forgot to leave us towels in the bathroom AND that was with leaving a tip each day for them. 3) Air conditioner was good but LOUD. 4) The room was pretty well updated except the bathroom. Grout missing between tiles and small spot of mold found in corner of shower. 5) The vendors on the beach can get annoying and we speak Spanish. 6) My BIGGEST disappointment was that we were given a simple map of the hotel lay out and that's it. We had no idea what activities were being offered and at what time, If you want to know what was going on that day you would have to physically walk over to the buffet area where ONE television screen would show you activities and time for that day. That's it!!! They may get more participants if we knew what was going on ahead of time. Pros: 1) Food selection was great. The buffet had plenty of selection to choose from and was very clean. 2) The entertainment crew really work hard there as well 3) Plenty of chairs on beach and pools ( and shade from palm trees) but i was told that the hotels was not completely full. Fortunately we are average travelers that feel fine in buffets and not big on the drinking that we rate this hotel as "Just Average". Nothing here blew us away here but it was enough for what we were looking for...sun and relaxation

    We booked this vacation 2 months back with special request upper floor Garden side rooms. On arrival I reminded the front desk. He said don't wary 4011 its upstairs good room, 4011 located end building in a corner Ground floor rundown room. Please speak the Truth. Again I asked the bell man who came to my room, I shows him about the bed why only box spring with out mattress.(please see tripadvisor Posted pictures of the bed). He said he will inform to change the room. I went in person every day to front office to switch room always system down / wow only for me, but New Guest checking in & out with system working. After sleeping on the Box spring 3 rd day I got neck pain & sick / end up at the local medical center and Spa to fix my nick / body. Very Good beach / Humble staff / House keeping staff Excellent workers, but no power can't help to change my bed. Food is OK. Please let one of the manager to sleep on this 4011 bed for a night and send a report How painful ? Hope Management in the future will listen to Customers / Guest Booking request / Treat every one same way European high floors :-) good rooms with Box + mattress, but for me who paid West Jet vacation HIGH Price only mattress ? No fridge no ceiling fan / got bitten by mosquitos each night inside my room. This is not 4. 1/2 * stars hotel I rate may be 2. 5 *. Viva should lean a lots from RIU Hotel management. Restaurant entrance very kind Host Jesica / friendly cooks & waiters.
