Nice swim up bar but...

I stayed at this hotel for a week in early April 17 with my husband and teenage daughter. Unfortunately for the money we paid I was extremely disappointed. I am comparing this apparently 5 star (it's not) hotel with other similar priced hotels I have stayed in in Europe, Caribbean and middle east countries. The beach is lovely, huge expanse...

Unfortunately the hotel is not 5* as advertised which lets it down as it could be so much better. Rooms: We had a junior suite, room was spacious and clean, furniture a little dated, bed was...

Our maid was great, even did some lovely sculptures for our little boys birthday and put his cards around them. Excellent food, lots of variety and fresh....

Me and hubby had a relaxing week in the sun. The hotel was a typical Riu standard. The variety of food was good and the pool area was lovely. The room was a good standard. Just great to chill and have every need catered for. This is the second time we have stayed on Boa Vista. We honestly just go...
