    Very fun trip! Could be the wrong resort for some.

    I am still rather new to the all inclusive style vacations. This is my 4th resort and brand of hotel and 5th trip. As with the vast majority of places there were things that could have been better but none of that impacted my enjoyment. You get what you pay for and I found this place to be extremely well priced. With very pleasant food choices across the board. My group was aged 35-39 and I would say majority of guests were 25+ Detailed observations and opinions: FOOD: very good. Best overall. Worst buffet was actually breakfast. Worst restaurant was the Asian (100% buffet). That being said none of it was "bad". We went to all restaurants except the steakhouse as there was an hour wait. Saturday night was the only evening there seemed to be a wait anywhere. Literally every resort ive ever read reviews on there's people complaining about the food. I'd like to see them cook for as many people a day as resorts do AND catering to tastes around the globe. The pool food was not bad but was basically hotdog/hamburger/nachos. The queso was absolutely horrendous. BUT OMG THIS RESORT ACTUALLY HAS WONDERFULLY SPICED BUFFET FOOD. POOL/DAYTIME ENTERTAINMENT: This was the most drastic difference I felt from the other resorts I've been to. Saw the most people removed from pool in wheelchairs (and my favorite thing to do at pool is people watch). The lifeguards did seem to quickly respond to dangerous or what they may have deemed excessive behaviors. Sometimes I couldn't figure out who did the naughty thing. Pretty easy to get yourself drinks. I do think that at ANY resort the guests themselves impact the rowdiness of the pool areas. My group designated the pools as calm vibes/party pool/activity pool/sports pool. So there did seem to be a pool to meet most people's expectations party or relaxed environment. Another difference I noticed that that the workers did not really contribute much to getting guests involved compared to other resorts I've been too. But it's easy to figure where and when things were. NIGHT TIME ENTERTAINMENT: very enjoyable. The club/disco is very loud but was a blast. The two night time shows were enjoyable. EMPLOYEES: zero complaints from me. Marlene was an absolute gem at breakfast. And the lunch buffet hosts were also attentive. If you are looking for/require very warm and jovial employees to enhance your trip maybe go elsewhere. Again, this isn't a complaint of mine. But was an observation. Vacations are what you and your group makes them many times. Riu Latino hits all the marks in terms of providing options to make your trip an enjoyable one.

    Graduation party

    This resort is so clean, I loved all the modern decor and the rooms. We had an absolute blast at the swim up bar pool with Caesar and Mr Tako. They were amazing and so much fun!!!! The beach is nice also it is all sand so no need for water shoes like some that I have been to with a lot of rocks. Entertainment was good, the food was good except I wish the steakhouse was enclosed and air conditioned it was super hot and just not comfortable to dine in. The property is beautiful though and the water slides are a blast. I would return to this one!!!

    1week of rest

    Riu hotels always deliver quality and cleanliness,and the Riu Latino was no different. Our stay was restful except when a overstimulated tourist pulled the fire alarm at 1.48 am causing an evacuation of the hotel. It was handled with efficiency and we returned to our rooms within 4 minutes. The employees of this hotel go above and beyond, from the bartenders going around the pools to the waiters in the restaurants. As for the animation team, they were amazing. Our only hiccup was the access to the beach…it is quite a track to get to it, and most times it was choppy. Aside from that Riu Latino delivers all that it says.

    A beautiful resort!

    The resort itself is beautiful! Everyone there was so nice and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The pools and the water slides were so much fun! There are two swim up bars. The drinks were delicious! The food was pretty good. Unfortunately, I did not try any of the restaurants. I ate at the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or some times for lunch or a quick snack, I would eat the grill near the pools. There are two bars inside. The sports bars and the Velvet. All Riu's have a sports bars. I love hanging out at the sports bar. The Velvet was more chill and relaxed. The only cons that I have, was the entertainment, the gift shop and the sports bar snacks. There was not a lot of entertainment at the resort. I really hope in the future, that this resort will have more entertainment. The snacks in the sports bar are horrible, but it was the same way at the Riu in Negril. I did not like the gift shop. The items were very pricey. A beach bag was $60.00, absolutely not! This resort is a further away from clubs, shops and eateries. Other than that, the resort was a nice little vibe.

    I usually stay at riu palace but tried this riu. It was very nice, very clean & the service was wonderful. We had breakfast with Jaqui as our server every morning, Abel made us comfortable on the beach, Bryan&Carlos were excellent beach staff. The beach was picture perfect&the water was refreshing. The pool water was actually HOT! Not at all what I expected for the pools. The food was very good. I will go back but it will be in the spring not as hot.
