The hotel was great...however I was totally screwed by Travelocity. I booked my trip in November for February. Analyzed the cost over a couple of days prior to booking. Then booked for 2. When I checked in they only had me for 1. We had to pay an additional $1,400. When I compared the rate I paid in November for 2, it totally made sense compared to what my friends paid. Totally screwed by Travelocity. And they wouldn’t even help.

Nice staff, quick check in. We did not receive an itinerary of activities like we have at other places, but after several days we found a video display in the lobby with all the activities. Food varied in quality. Didn't like the Italian at all. The Asian restaurant was excellent. You can eat at the other two facilities adjacent (Riu Santa Fe and Baja), but the menus are exactly the same. The buffet was better than most of the specialty restaurants. Cannot swim at this beach, that should be listed in the description. The facility was nicely appointed, but there was broken tiles everywhere. Doesn't give a very good first impression when you walk in the expansive reception area and the expensive marble and granite are cracked and falling out. Lots of space around the various pools with a good amount of loungers and shady spots. The pool drink service is excellent. The east pool is the loud one with all the activities, while the west pool was quiet and relaxing. The beach vendors are kept back behind a rope, so they can't hassle you. The facility is about 3 km from town, beyond easy walking distance. We booked a water taxi tour with the on site vendor (down at beach level near the fitness center), which was $22/person. They give you a nice little tour of the arch and will drop you off at lover's beach. The shuttle back runs regularly, so after the tour we spent time in town and took a later shuttle. Also, their whale tour was excellent. Generally a very good vacation.

This is an excellent property - super luxurious, the food, restaurants and bar ambience is great! Rooms are awesome! And the hotel is soooo clean; I observed the staff cleaning baseboards, ceiling, walls, etc, in addition to all of the other expected cleaning. We had such a wonderful time! The only thing I would suggest as improvements are to have more than one towel stand and to allow dinner reservations.

The infinity pools look out towards Lovers Beach and were very nice. Only suggestion would be if the restaurants would provide better access to menus and daily changes.
