  • 2.0.Poor

    Be real

    Will never stay here again...the room was not clean and even when I saw blood on my sheets and asked for new sheets on my last night they never even brought sheets to replace them so I slept on the couch. The room cards never worked and you have to go to the front every time to get new ones. The food was not cooked all the way. I was told that other resorts were better but I thought this looked good but I learned the hard way.

    Went to celebrate my birthday

    I have to say that I have stayed at numerous or are you properties in different parts of the world this was a very very beautiful property plenty of activities or if you just want to relax and chill you can do that as well there’s numerous pools to just take it easy. If you are going for the food then I don’t want you to have any expectations because the food is not that good, the only thing that is good there is the jerk chicken hut which is right on The property near the beach. They do a very good job of preparing the dining halls and different restaurants but just keep your expectations at a low. The price is right for your stay and don’t pay more then 30 for a cab from the airport . Hope you have fun.

    Great resort but.....

    Management had no clue on how to make an Adults Only resort fun for adults...No swim suit contest....no dance contest....no adult fun...they only played Bingo at the pool everyday as if it were a Senior citizen resort.....Pool bar closed at 6pm while the pool was filled with people....People were begging for some fun...and all they offered was Bingo.....Nice resort,rooms and staff...

  • 6.0.Good

    I read so many reviews and I don’t think m anyone accurately described this hotel. First off a lot was shut down because of Covid. That has a large affect on what you can and can’t do at the hotel. No splash park, no swim up bar etc. Next the food was horrible. We tried our best to find the best meal of the day, and I would say it was lunch but all around the food was not enjoyable. The drinks are also not great. All frozen drinks came out of a icee machine. NOTHING was blended . And lastly the staff for the most part was amazing but the cleaning ladies stole money out of my friends purse when my friend went down for breakfast. She was then told that nothing would be done about it.

  • 4.0.Fair

    My stay with Riu Republica was treacherous. It is not a safe hotel for Americans and I would not recommend anyone stay there. The staff was very rude on multiple occasions. Upon arrival, my group of 5 travelers was met with despise from the front desk staff when we asked to simply be in the same vicinity of each other. To make matters worse, one of the members of my group had a very expensive pair of sunglasses stolen from him at the bar in the hotel lobby. When he approached staff about the issue to review the cameras, he was met with lie after lie. Initially, they stated the cameras in place were night vision and would not see it (I know ridiculous). After further questioning, they then stated that we had to come back tomorrow in the morning as the person who has access to the cameras is gone. After becoming frustrated with the staff and management who did not want to help us, we requested the manager and security official. The security manager who would not address our issue for over an hour finally arrived from the back room and stated that there was a "hardware issue" with the cameras and there was nothing that they could do. Her statement verbatim was "This is a public place. We are all adults. There is nothing that we can do. It is not our fault that the cameras do not work. We are not responsible." 0/10 Would not recommend.
