    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    We had to switch rooms 3 times because all rooms smelled like mold. We settled for one that smelled less of mold out of 3. Our phone in room did not work entire stay and we asked for it to be fixed everyday. Was not fixed. There was discrimination when we arrived from the welcoming staff and when we left. All the Caucasian guests were greeted with champagne and their bags were brought into the hotel lobby from outside. When I arrived, the bell man was inside staring at me from inside as I carried my bag up the stairs and into lobby. There were no other guests around me or he was not busy. I was not greeted with a bold beverage and had to lug my suitcase with me to check in desk. Same thing happened when I left. They did not take my bag outside even though he saw me carrying it out the door. When we wanted to eat at the restaurants, we were denied seats when the Caucasian’s after us were given waiting buzzers. 3 couples. When we complained, we reluctantly got a buzzer to wait. There’s much more...WILL NEVER STSY AT A RIU PROPERTY AGAIN!

      The location Great!! Horrible room service. My husband and i missed breakfast and we were told by room service that they cannot make an egg for him and provide a slice of toast. We accepted it was our fault and explained my husband was ill and needed something to eat...and they could not say how long before they could provide a sandwich...the room service manager refused to come to the phone..JUST HORRIBLE....my husband stomach illness got worst....me.. my friends and family will never ever go to any Riu

      This was unlike other riu palace properties(cabo/cancun/costa rica). The cabinets were broken, the double beds were more like twin sized beds , the charging points were broken and overall the property had a very old feel to it. We did ask them to change the room (ocean view)within 15 mins of checking in but they asked us to wait until next day , checkout from the room at 10 am and then new room would be assigned at 3pm. Seemed like a hassle, so we continued to live where we were.
