Stayed at this resort for 1 week and could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. Everything was great! Very relaxing resort for people who want to relax but have fun too! Staff are exceptional!

The resort is not what you expect for a RIU but is the very reason i would go back! it is low key, intimate and breath taking...if you want the hussle and bussel or the night life, go to the sonata but if you want quite, relax and no fighting to get a drink or beach chair...come here.

This resort was nice but nothing great. I have stayed at many Riu's before and this doesn't compare. It was very unorganized. They lost our reservation for a massage and we had to book 2 days later. We had to pay an extra $120 to have a late check out which is ridiculous ( an extra 4hours in the room)....

Beautiful property. Not a 'Palace" but still beautiful. Upgrade to the Marina Suite, well worth it. I enjoyed the food at the buffet lots of variety. Would go back. The bars do close at midnight but you do have liquor dispensers in your room if you want more alcohol. Lots of variety of drinks too.We were five couples so we...

Let me start off saying that we have stayed at the RIU "Palace" in Punta Cana and it by far exceeded this resort. The resort grounds were well kept and it has beautiful views of Anguilla from across the bay. The resort is definitely isolated so if you are looking for things to do then this is not the place...

We spent a week at the Riu and it was extremely relaxing. The drinks were always flowing and the breakfast buffet is great. We had dinner at the French restaurant and it was fantastic. The fillet at the French restaurant was 10x better than at the steakhouse restaurant. The steakhouse restaurant was the worst meal we had on our trip....
