    Good Stay

    I have stayed at several RIUs in the past and do enjoy this all-inclusive chain. This resort is bigger than most I have stayed in. The rooms are spacious and come with a balcony. The toilet is in a separate room from the sink and shower, which was nice and different than Dream resorts. There are several pools - many of which have swim-up bars, where a party always seems to be happening. Each of the pools seems to have a different theme/crowd. There is a quiet pool if that is your preference. The beach is nice and the water is beautiful. However, the hotel is a pretty far from the beach. You cannot see the beach unless you walk to it. There are about many restaurants at the resort. We found the food at all restaurants to be fine. Keep in mind that even the specialty restaurants are mostly buffet-style. We liked this because we could get in and out more quickly. If you choose, there is always a party going on. There is a nightclub that gets pretty busy. Twice a week, you can take a bus to the huge RIU foam pool party. The gym was pretty good for a resort gym. Staff was friendly and helpful. On the negative side, the resort is HUGE! Our room was nice, but I did not like the location (by the quiet pool). If you stay here, request a room near the restaurants or beach (although I did this and still was assigned a room far away). If you have mobility issues, this may not be the resort for you.

    Anniversary/Vacation

    We had an amazing vacation at the Riu Republica. It was our first trip to the DR so we really had no idea of what to expect and were pretty much sold on the fact that it was an “Adults Only” resort. So we gave it a try. We met so many wonderful people and new friends! We booked our transportation to and from the hotel and airport with the most amazing local lady, Erica Espo. We also booked our excursion to Saona Island through her, which is the most gorgeous piece of earth that I’ve encountered yet. If you’re going to the Dominican Republic, I highly recommend a trip to Saona with Erica! She’s truly fabulous!! She provides lots of information about the Dominican in general and was very informative of our entire excursion. She truly does have her clients best interest at heart. Everyone at the resort treated us like family, decorated our breakfast and dinner tables and room daily once they found out we were celebrating our Anniversary. Sang to us, spoiled us with some of the Best Rum, and the islands iconic drink, Mamajuana. I absolutely love it! Its phenomenal. And also the most delicious coffe I’ve ever had, Spanish Coffee ❤️ Our room was cleaned thoroughly every day that we were there. We never felt unsafe at this resort. We were constantly seeing employees cleaning up rather it be at the restaurants, the bars, the grounds keepers, or cleaning up by the pools consistently. We read in some of the reviews that some people were disappointed with the younger crowds getting a little bit carried away and partying it up in the pool area. But we were never bothered by that because we are on vacation, we love to watch other people having a great time, and if you were really that bothered by any of the crowd and or partying there are plenty of other pools that you can go and relax by if you’re looking for quiet. There truly is something for everyone at this resort. We saw people from the age of 18 to 80. Most restaurants are buffet style, even the specialty restaurants. But it suited us just fine. There were a few dishes they were absolutely extraordinary in our opinion and also a few that were just mediocre. However neither one of us went hungry and we could always find something to eat for every meal that we liked. The jerk chicken hut between the pool And beach area is phenomenal! We had it every day for lunch during our weeks stay. We would absolutely recommend staying at the Riu Republica if you’re traveling to Punta Cana. We will be back, that’s for certain!!

    Best vacation ever

    This was our 3rd vacation at this resort. We stayed in room 3089 and had a lovely view of courtyard , the ocean and beautiful sunsets.The room was always clean and well kept with good sup ply of cold curves. The steak house and buffet offered a wonderful selection of food and drinks. The grounds were groomed and in beautiful condition. There was lots of room at any pools and lots of chairs. The jerk chicken shop was a big hit with good barbecue food. Special mention to Wandy and Gregorie at Coco,s beach bar. Great friendship from great guys. The beach is beautiful although wind and surf. A special mention to our policeman amigo Henry. The staff were all very friendly and helpful from Omayra , Fausto, Isaura and Catherine. Thanks to Junior , Jorge and Persiauo in the buffet. Wonderful vacation.
