Confortable room, confortable bed, nice stay!

I had a good stay at the hotel. I liked the confort of the room, I slept well in a good bed, the staff is very kind. I tried the room service, in 15 minutes I had my order in my room. The ceviche is excellent!The only think I didn't appreciate is the breakfast restaurant. To much people, it is very noisy. The breakfast is very good, there is a lot of choice.

Nice central location, great breakfast.

This is a very nice place with a good pool and great views out the windows. Just sit in the pool and look up at the amazing architecture around. Rooms are large-ish. TV and the internet good. I think you get one bottle of water free. A/C good. The breakfast was the best I've ever had, and I've been to Turkey, land of great breakfasts. I can't think of anything that wasn't good about the place. Service is fine. You can walk to good restaurants. Gaucho is about 6 blocks away.I don't know about service at the pool. I only asked for a towel and got that. We are not the type of travelers that look for a lot of service so I can't comment on that.We asked for extra room keys and got them, no problem.

A Great Hotel

A great hotel with fabulous facilities and very pleasant staff. Ideally located. Room was spacious with king size bed. Fruit plate provide on arrival and complimentary use of other hotel facilities. Highly recommended.

Fine until Saturday night

This place is adequate. Front desk is decent. Breakfast service is underwhelming. Need more staff. Staff at front door is hit and miss. My major complaint would be that on Saturday afternoon/evening there was an event/concert that was completely inappropriate for a hotel like this. It was open to anyone, so there were lots of local kids. Sleazy would describe the scene. There were dancers that looked like they came from the local strip joint. They were gyrating like something out of a rap video. It was nasty and inappropriate. Hard to believe that the management thought this was the right kind of event for a Riu hotel. Wow. People are here to wind down. It basically meant the pool area was off limits. (this is where the concert was held) We were looking forward to relaxing and cooling down after a long hot day but walked into this scene. Gross. Other than that I have no other major issues.

Good hotel, very poor quality of service at the pool!

Rooms are very nice and cleaning staff is very good. Service at the pool and restaurant is very bad! Staff only understands Spanish and orders to forever to process. After 35 minutes I decided to ask where my food was, I was told it was sold out. The neighbouring table came in later and ordered the same. But got there food before.Drinks at the pool are difficult to get. Staff is not paying attention to their guests. They are more interesten in each other. When ordering simple beer they take more than 20 minutes, and you need to remind them.
