Loved the atmosphere... staff was incredibly nice and very helpful. The snack bar could have better snacks to offer throughout the day.

Everything is well kept. The Lobby is too plain compared to other Riu's. Missing flowers arrangements...

Riu Republica is a beautiful property; extremely clean, pleasing and beautiful grounds with tropical trees and flowers all around. However, I don't like that things closed so early; for example, I woke up late one day, went down to find coffee & breakfast. The 2 main restaurants were closed. I did get some coffee, but they were prepping for lunch and all that was available was snack type food. The jerk chicken option was supposed to be open 12-6. At least 3 days out of the 5, it was closed prior to 5 PM. Also, the towel & card process; a bit over engineered for towels. One towel at a time, one per day, don't want them laying around, and if you return the towel as expected, then you get your card back and don't get charged $25.00. Towels is part of the business of owning a resort; RIU, please handle your business. On another note, again the resort is CLEAN, which I appreciate! People seem to work very hard.The water is visually BEAUTIFUL. Very powerful waves most days, made it hard to swim. Also, bar in room; suggestion, bring in wine as an option; I don't drink hard liquor and to have to walk a VERY far distance for a glass of wine at a time was ridiculous. Great time though, thanks to the hard workers and the nice smiles.

Poor, cheep decor. Rooms look more like hospital rooms than vacation resort. Beach too crowded with small palm trees. Poor cleanliness. Room phone wasn't working and that was a safety issue for us. We asked many times to fix it with no results. Entartinment people were rude especially girl named Chocolate. We had to wait for clean beach towels every day for hours. Will not go back for sure.

The property has a lot of fun things to do including the water slides and pool parties. The beach was beautiful and had plenty of lounge chairs for us. The property was in good condition and the food was pretty decent
