My husband & I went for a friend's wedding Nov 2010. We did not make the reservations ourself, but we would go back in a second. As a matter of fact we are starting to plan a return visit for next year. We would also like to visit the new Riu in Costa Rica. The staff was very attentive and friendly, starting from the minute we arrived. We were created with smiles and a drink. We where in our room within 20 minutes of arrival. The food was good. Not as spicy as we expected. Ate at the Krystal and the Steak House, both were excellent. The Jerk Shack on the beach is a must for lunch.The beach was amazing and the pool was clean. The room was perfect for the 2 of us. Double sink and fresh towels daily were key. It was a little musty when we first got there but a few sprays of Fabreeze did the trick.Maid service and room service were prompt and courtesy. Bartenders where quick and funny, especially Andrew at the swim up bar. We will miss the frozen drinks and Jamaican Appleton Special rum. The only thing we didn't like about the stay is that wasn't long enough. November is a great time to go. The weather was hot with a breeze and no rain the entire time we were there. Rick's Cafe is a must. Book it through the resort, the coordinated it perfectly. No problem mon!
