Great week in the Tropics

Reviewed 26 october, 2021

The Riu Republica in Punta Cana is a very good property, many swimming pools, reasonable beach, lots of lounge chairs on beach and around the pools. Food is very high quality and portions often a bit too large. I think they should cut back portions 20% so that people leave less on the plate as they are full.

Really good place to stay

Reviewed 25 october, 2021

I was at Riu Republica from Oct 17 to Oct 24 to celebrate my birthday. I had an amazing time in Punta Cana. It is definitely a beautiful place. Housekeepers very attentive and kind. Drinks are not the best one. (Bar inside the theatre is the place where the make the best drinks, but it is a kind of lucky as well) Natural juice only at the breakfast. Food really good in the buffet at breakfast and dinner. Lunch is just ok. As an adult only Resort, they have all that you can look for.. If you like to party and socialize the pool close to the beach it is your place. If you want a time out, just relax and keep it calm, the other side of the hotel, more close to the splash pool will be your place. The only thing that I think that need to improve, it is to have smokers and non-smokers area, as many hotels all around the world. The fact that people smoke everywhere, even in the social areas (theatre, pools, bars, hall, beach) it is pretty inconvenient and annoying. Special thanks to Saulo from the reception! He is the best! 👏🏾👏🏾

I’ve traveled to a lot of RIU hotels and RIU Republica is super nice. Very clean! A little big, but there is plenty to do! All the staff here is amazing, but Sfrailin was AMAZING!!! Made sure we had a great time! We will be back.

Fun Times at Riu Republica

Reviewed 24 october, 2021

This was our second time at the Riu Republica and it did not disappoint!! From our smooth check-in with Christian at the front desk to our ocean view room and seeing our favourite bartender Luis Miguel at the Ola Bar. You see, when we visited in November 2018, Luis Miguel worked pool-side taking drink orders. We hoped he’d still be working there and, sure enough, he was there on our first day, having moved on to bartender at the Ola Bar. He was as friendly and fun as always and we updated our picture together since he’s “all grown up” now! Also need to give a special shout out to Yina at the Ola swim-up bar who treated us very well. Her son had a birthday during the week we were there - Feliz cumpleaños! The food was excellent, the buffet has lots of choices so if you can’t find something, you’re too fussy and should go somewhere you can make your own food. We also ate at the steak house twice, the Italian twice and the Asian. We never went hungry. Our go-to server in the morning for breakfast was Rocky who was always so happy and kept our coffee and mimosas full. The grounds of this resort are so nice, they are constantly working to keep them beautiful. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. Soft, warm sand and very little seaweed. What little seaweed appeared was quickly cleared away. COVID testing was a necessary evil to return home but it is very well organized. A Doctor is on-site every day from 9:00-10:30 to do the testing. A PCR test was $80 US each. When our trip had to end, it was great to have Christian again doing our checkout. Our trip had come full circle! We had an amazing time and won’t hesitate to return. The employees are just lovely. Thanks to Christian, Luis Miguel, Yina, Rocky and many others.

I loved my stay here. The resort the resort is beyond beautiful with so much to do. Sfrailin was amazing he made me feel so comfortable during my stay. You have to ask for him he is so much fun. I will definitely be returning. The food is okay depending on what you get but the jerk chicken is definitely the best thing .
