Hi, I'm going in January for the first time to a RIU Hotel, RIU Naiboa, in an All Inclusive regime, however I have a couple of questions.

- Can you exchange money inside the hotel (i.e. from EUR to USD)?

- If you stay in this hotel can you use some facilities in the other RIU hotels in the resort (i.e. pool, bars, shops, etc)? If so, does it has a cost involved?

- They request us a security deposit in credit card or cash, right? How much do they ask us in cash? I do not have a credit card, and I'm travelling from Portugal to Dominican Republic and need to now how much money should I take, as I do not want to withdraw there (to expensive).

- There's a place to get massages there, right? Average price?

Many thanks in advance for your reply!

Patricia Francisco

You can exchange money - but it would only be to Dominican Pesos.

I don't know if this will apply to you, but when we visit the Dominican republic (from the UK), we have to pay 10USD at the airport to enter the country, and 25USD at the airport to exit - these fees may have been included in your flight tickets - so do check your documentation or with your travel agent.

Most of the shops are on 'Dominican Street' and they are accessible to all, and there are others between the Riu Bamabu and Riu Punta Cana beach (also accessible)

As a Niaboa guest - you can only use the facilities of the Niaboa (please check the relevant pages for the hotels at www.riu.com)

we have never had to pay a deposit on check in.

You will only want Tip money, shopping money, and money to pay for trips - In your place I would get USD at home and take them with me. Possibly take some euro notes (size 20 - 50)to change to Pesos at reception in case you run short. NO one can guess how much you'll spend since it's all on extras.

There is (probably) a cash machine (ATM) in reception.

Yes, probably $40 USD - $60 USD - you get a discount if you have a riuclass account (apply at www.riuclass.com)
