Guest reviews for Riu Guanacaste - All Inclusive

Family (1)
5 out of 5
Wir haben in diesem Hotel als Familie ein paar wunderbare Tage erlebt. Die Anlage ist riesig und das Essen war vielseitig und hat uns sehr geschmeckt. Wir waren über Silvester dort und das Personal war sehr fleissig und hat alles gemacht, dass die Gäste zufrieden waren. Es ist unglaublich, was bei so einer grossen Hotelanlage alles funktionieren muss und dass es dabei auch mal das eine oder andere nicht so gut funktioniert, ist normal und muss nicht immer gleich mit negativen Bewertungen beschrieben werden. Die Poolanlage haben wir nicht besucht, weil wir prinzipiell einen Pool mit Poolbar meiden und es uns zu viele Leute hatte. Das Hotel hat leider keinen separaten Pool zum Schwimmen. Die Poolanlage mit Poolbar war sehr voll (spielende Kinder, Erwachsene an der Bar, Aquafit etc.). Umso mehr haben wir den schönen ruhigen Strand beim Hotel genossen und wir wurden nicht von Verkäufern belästigt. Die Badezimmer/WC sollten unbedingt erneuert werden. Unser Zimmer hatte eine Badewanne mit Duschbrause. Wir würden dieses Hotel trotzdem wieder buchen. Pura Vida! Manuela mit Fam.
