The resort is very beautiful and the food is excellent! This was a perfect trip, until someone stole $140 (Pesos and U.S. dollars combined) from the safe in the room. On the first day we created a new pin for the safe and put all of our money in there. We brought it out to count mid-way through the vacation, the money was gone. There were no signs of break in and nothing else of value was taken. We made a report with the resort, but we have not heard anything since (roughly 2 weeks) and all they did was send a security guard (that did not speak english) up to the room, look at the safe and have us sign a paper......no offer of reimbursement. They also blamed us for leaving the safe unlocked because it is "impossible" to get into the safe. If you are staying at this resort I would recommend putting your money in multiple locations and take extra steps to lock or protect your money and possessions. Excellent vacation, but this completely derailed our experience and peace of mind.

Absolutely Incredible!

Pros: The food was delicious and the choices were never ending. Drinks were all top shelf and made perfectly.
Cons: The AC in the room didn't work great, could have been a little better.
Location: Location was excellent, lots of water activities to do and nearby hotels to visit; especially the two other Riu's.
Beautiful hotel, very clean and well kept. The food and drinks were fantastic and the service was great. Beach was awesome, we can't wait to go back as soon as possible!
