    Everything we expected and more

    Breakfast buffet had everything you could ask for, Pepe’s great for lunch, specialty restaurants were very good and had much better wine, and most importantly, the staff was friendly and helpful throughout the entire property. This was our first experience at a RIU, but it will not be our last!
