“Absolutely amazing resort! Beautiful grounds and very friendly staff. There were plenty of activities on the resort to keep guest entertained and never a dull moment. This has been one of my favorite Riu resorts to stay at.” – Page O. 4/19
“We stayed at RIU Republica in July 2017. It’s new, super clean, and a great place to have fun and relax. It’s the right size — you don’t have to get on golf carts to go around — and it’s adult only so you don’t have to watch out for children. There are multiple pools, and they have thoughtfully arranged things so that one pool is more happening with music and events, while two other pools are more quiet and perfect for relaxing. Staff are friendly and respectful, and always happy to help. The happening pool and one of the quiet pools have bars attached to them — very nice setting to be in the water and still get drinks and chill. Food is great. Three restaurants and one very large self-serve buffet. Food variety is amazing. All in all, a great place to stay, highly recommended.” – Nassar M. 7/17
“Great entertainment staff! They keep you entertained and highly amused with the pool side activities and also with the shows they have at the theatre. Good food and just an all around atmosphere. Highly recommend” – Michael W. 7/17
