Nayri ~ Mortongrove, IL

Pool: Very clean and well maintained.
Beach: Beautiful!! Enjoyed it every single day.
Food/Drink: Food was better here than other resorts. Very good!
Entertainment: Compared to other resorts, entertainment seemed to be MIA.
Accommodations: Everything seemed to be new and clean. Very happy with accomidations.
Service: Overall, staff was very rude. Unwilling to help and when they felt like it, spoke a tiny bit of English with certain travlers.Did not get the service that I expected from a 5 star RIU resort. I can see this becoming a big problem for other travelers.I am not one to complain, but I really think something needs to be done about the service.
Overall: Besides the staff and entertainment, we really did enjoy the resort.
