Not 5 stars. Horrible smell. Horrible people. Horrible cleanliness. The services aren't very good. And the pool is neutral. I stayed here 3 days then I moved to Riu Palace Punta Cana because I didn't like Taino at all. Lots of people moved to Palace too. Teresa, Portugal.

The customer service is what makes this hotel wonderful! The rooms aren't the best (no appliances, small beds, AC not ice cold but cold enough), but where do you spend most of your vacation, in or out of the room? The receptionists are great at what they do, the dining staff make a memorable meal experience, and everyone in general...
