Riu PalaceRoaches and stained sofa

Hey Travel community. I am seething right now. I just had a girls trip come back from Riu Palace Punta cana who reported that they had to kill roaches and had a stained sofa. Had to move to another room with a slightly stained sofa. Of course this reflects badly on me, what can I do to show good faith! Any suggestions besides a vacation credit for their next booking or a gift card?

El Dorado dining reservations

I have a client going to El Dorado Seaside in a couple of weeks, and she was asking about booking dining reservations before they arrive. I know that most resorts used to not allow that, but have found recently that some (especially Iberostar) are allowing it. Does anyone know about El Dorado Seaside? Thanks!See More

"No.  Most golf courses require a caddy and cart, but the cost is usually less than here in the States.  Drinks will be extra because they will not be on the resort; the golf courses are operated separately.  Jewel Runaway Bay also…"

All inclusive with golf included with no hidden costs

I don't think this exists but just want to make sure. Family of 5 almost booked Beaches Ocho Rios until they saw where there are some costs with the golf (mandatory caddy, golf cart, alcohol). They want family friendly with no hidden golf cost, including alcohol while on the course. Anywhere in Caribbean. Anything exist? Thanks!

"Sheryl, Maybe you mean Cruise 360 in Ft. Lauderdale as that is in Vancouver next week. Cruise World is always in Ft. Lauderdale each November though. It is an awesome show IMHO and we get great speakers there like Geoff Millar and Craig Satterfield! "

Kathy Kocharhook replied to Dawn Celiberti's discussion Zika
"That list is constantly changing as more locations become involved. I would simply refer them to the CDC site and leave it at that.  Otherwise, your posted listings will soon be providing inaccurate information for which you will be responsible."
