rooms are awful
I want to start by saying that the location was beautiful! The staff was extremely friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed the activities staff Shmika did a fantastic job she will be missed. The pool games were very entertaining. The pool and lobby areas are in great shape. I don't understand why the pool closes at 6:00 P.M.??? This is an adults only facility. The food was very good but you do have to get to the steak house early to get in. Now to the room and the reason I can not give this hotel a decent rating. I should have listened to the person who said that the rooms needed to be updated and the mattresses were indeed flipped.The no flip mattress was flipped. We were shown several other available rooms (shocker) and the mattresses were all flipped. I was offered a suite with a king a for a nominal fee and that mattress was flipped too! The front desk woman was new and didn't seem to understand! We flipped one mattress ourselves and the pillow top had been unzipped and removed the mattress was disgustingly stained. The hallways are so MUSTY and MOLDY smelling it made me sick! The bathrooms are in bad shape. There are no fans in the bathrooms either! I happened to be at the pool and was approached by a manager named Claudia. She asked how our stay was I told her about the mattress and she was fully aware of the situation. She informed me that that was the way the Westin had left them! So the hotel is very aware of the problems! I was offered a room with a new mattress. This room had a king size bed which wouldn't work for us as our daughter was traveling with us. A roll away bed was offered but that would have made the room even more cramped and I could only imagine the shape that was in! The alcohol is bottom of the barrel unless you ask for a certain kind and that is very limited and suspect. There is only one beer and it is awful. I will not be returning to this facility!More
Amazing hotel experience
We have had the best time at the hotel. It's clean and rod throughout. The staff are brilliant, very polite, friendly and can't do enough for you. We had a couple of minor issues with the room but everything was sorted within the hour. The food is brilliant a great choice of restaurants. Our favourite was the Krystal restaurant but equally all we're very good. They are popular so you have to queue before they even open but that's not too much trouble. The buffet places are top class. Great selection and variety of food. The bars are always stocked up and they serve premium spirits as well as the local stuff. They make cocktails on order and serve them to you. They also have a little nightclub that's open late. Our favourite bar is the pool bar which is really popular. Swim up and grab your drink and sit in the pool drinking is like heaven. We didn't see much of the evening entertainment but heard it's good. They team put on plenty of activities around the pool in the day which is great. There is a great atmosphere here. Can't fault the hotel and our stay. Would recommend this place More
Perfection in Paradise
Junior suite with partial ocean view on 17th floor. It was incredible. Room was slightly dated but all amenities worked and the staff cleaned twice a day and came anytime we needed towels or something else within 10 minutes. Buffet restaurant was delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Room service was limited but prompt and friendly with fresh food. We stayed 9 total days. The beach location was convenient, the beach staff were friendly and helpful. Awesome boutiques on the lower level. My husband's luggage never arrived (airlines fault) but they had everything we needed and offered hand over foot to help usincluding same day laundry service. Located just a short walk to the tourism center of eagle beach filled with restaurants and shops. We will definitely come back to Riu.More

Absolutely loved our stay at this hotel! The room was great-we were on the top floor! Beautiful view of the most beautiful water I've ever seen! Everything was great! Staff was amazing on every level I would live here if I could!! Can't wait to return âï¸More
We stayed at this Riu Antillas and the Riu Palace before as well. Book at the Riu Palace - The Antillas rooms are old, dated, and a bit musty. The buffet area is very closed in with no views. It was so difficult to make reservations at any of the restaurants when they were empty. I was extremely disappointed. I would only stay at the Palace.More
