Eight ways to keep cool

The resort has a total of eight swimming pools, three of them with swim-up bars and one covering 900 square metres. All the pools are surrounded by sun decks with lounge chairs for guests to enjoy the Caribbean sunshine.

Riu Republica now has 10 restaurants: two buffets for breakfast and dinner; the Italian 'Tarantella'; the Asian 'Kaori'; the steakhouse 'Quisqueya'; two 'Kulinarium' fusion eateries; the Spanish restaurant 'Olé', which serves typical dishes from Spanish culture; a new jerk grill open daily in the pool zone; and the 'Taj Mahal', where guests can enjoy Indian cuisine.

The hotel offers a total of 1,382 rooms, among them eight suites, 12 two-bedroom family rooms, and six rooms that are fully adapted for people with reduced mobility. The other amenities of the Riu Republica include eight bars (one of them open 24 hours a day), a gym, a steam bath, a jacuzzi, and the Renova Spa wellness centre, which has a beauty and hair salon and massage service.
