A Riu is a Riu is a Riu. For frequent patrons of this resort chain, it is comforting knowing what you are going to get! This Riu is no exception. Built near the town of Coco Beach, this Riu is built in a horseshoe shape with a large garden spanning its interior. It is set on a very lovely beach and is currently waiting the arrival of its sister property next door; the Riu Palace set to open this November. The restaurants are open and spacious with good buffet food, many specialty restaurants, a game room and a large area for nightly entertainment and shows. The pool area, like always, is central with a swim-up bar, poolside snacks and many chairs and lounges for its guests. At one glance, you see guests playing watersports and enjoying the activities, at another you see laid back and relaxed loungers completely oblivious to the hustle and bustle on the other side. For those who love Rius, or similar all-inclusive properties, you will surely not be dissapointed.
