"We got to the Riu late into the night as we had, had flight issues. We were exhausted. The check in clerk was quick, friendly and got us into our room in less than 10 minutes. Our room was an ocean view, it was smaller, but served us perfectly as you're really only in there to sleep. Our room was clean and the bar was stocked. We tipped the cleaning lady/ladies $5 each morning and our room was immaculate the entire time, complete with towel Swans and towel Flowers, really pretty,nThe resort is exactly what you see in these pictures, it's amazing and really big. nI found the food, okay, Wasn't over the moon, but I was always able to find items I enjoyed eating, you have to remember this is Costa Rica, things WILL be DIFFERENT!nEvery staff member was super friendly and happily served us, especially Fahamar in the Buffet. I found the drinks to be a little weak .... I had drank 7 pina coladas the first day and wasn't even remotely tipsy (not like me), normally I have 2 and I'm dizzy!nThey were always cleaning the whole resort, so it looked immaculate all the time, the beach was beautiful, one negative is there were a lot of sales people on the beach offering excursions .... sometimes I felt pretty bothered.nWe toured Arenal volcano, beautiful and went zip lining which was FANTASTIC! We booked through the Delta Clerk who made everything easy and well priced too! The nighttime entertainment wasn't great, , which seemed to have more excitement going on in the evenings.nI truly feel that the staff made this holiday for us, they were so nice and so appreciative and it was great.nWe booked our shuttles to/from Airport , they were amazing! were our drivers and they were great!out tour guide taught us so much about the country and he was fluent in english so he explained a LOT :)nI would definitely recommend this to friends and plan to return next year.n"

"I read multiple reviews prior to booking this hotel. I chose this one due to being modern and more updated. The hotel was extremely clean upon arrival. People were always cleaning, mopping, etc. Check in was very quick but we were early and had to wait for our room approximately an hour. We did go ahead and have lunch on the property. Our room was clean and stocked well. We do not drink much so we asked to have the beer and seltzer waters removed from our mini fridge. They did it immediately and stocked it with water and cokes. The hotel called us at night to ask if we were pleased and if we needed anything. I was surprised. Everyone was very friendly and polite. Not all the staff were fluent in English but that was ok. Do not waste your time having money converted into Costa Rica currency as they like American money just as well. We had a king room on 5th floor. It was directly over night time entertainment which had I known this, I would have preferred the other side due to the noise at night until 11pm or so. We did not attend all the shows due to pre-booked excursions. The all inclusive part is correct. All drinks and food, they even brought drinks to the pools and ocean. It was nice. I read multiple complaints about the property and beach. Yes, the landscaping is young but they do provide shade for you. The beach is raw, mostly black-brown sand but this did not bother us at all. It is due to the volcanos and will never be blue like a gulf coast which was fine. There are a lot of venders on the beach trying to book your excursions. Many ppl to use venders and were satisfied. I did do a massage on the beach for $35. It was good. The hotel shops and spa is very over priced. Even with a discount coupon. The food was good, esp. breakfast. Lunch was usually repetitive but the dinners varied. The vacation itself was well worth what we paid, more than I expected, and I loved every minute of it. Would love to go back. Will book RIU hotels in the future."

"We came back from Riu Palace Costa Rica yesterday and we did not want to leave Costa Rica at all. We liked this Riu Palace more than Dominican Republic Riu Palace - food is more tasty, hotel is cleaner, view from room on ocean side is breathtaking. Hotel is non smocking - and it is good even though both of us are smokers. There are few spots to in a hotel for smoking and beach is totally public so you will not die. Sand on a beach is darker than in Punta Cana, but you see a lit of colorful fishes once you step in a water - loved it. Wild life is amazing everywhere - just open your eyes and you will find amazing ( sometimes scary) neighbors close to you. Bring everything what you might need, because prices are crazy for everything what you find in stores. Souvenirs price is better on Coco beach or Tamarindo beach. But go to tamarindo instead of Coco. We did Ecoglide Ziplines and it was AWESOM! Tabacon Hot springs is a must for you in Costa Rica. We booked one day tour that combined zipline, visit to view points of vulcan Arenal and Tabacon hot springs - $200, but it was worse it. We want to comeback to do different ziplines and relax in Tabacon."
