    When I stayed at the Riu last year, there was a coffee maker in the room.

    i went onto the riu's site and could not find the answer

    you could call or email them directly and ask?

    imo and speaking only on behalf of me............i need a coffee maker in the room. i need to wake up with the coffee. i do not want to schlep anywhere in an ugly wake up mood and get coffee someplace. i want my coffee almost as soon as my feet hit the floor. i want to be able to use the bathroom after coffee..............................and then begin my day.

    if they do not have coffeemaker in the room
    buy a cheapo $12 one at walmart and bring it with you. pack it carefully out of the box and use bubble wrap and clothing around the carafe.

    Thumbs up Coffee Please

    Although we do have a kitchen with a coffee maker at the Renaissance Ocean Suites, when we go to Las Vegas for some reason they don't have them. My solution, I bought a compact coffee maker with two thermal mugs at the bottom instead of a glass pot. Bring some gourmet coffee, non refrigerated creamers, sugar, some filters, and you are ready to enjoy morning coffee on your deck!

    Enjoy,
    Susan

    I will be taking my own. After staying at the radisson last year they had a coffee maker in the room- there was a filter still in the holder but had so much mold god only knows how long it was sitting like that. Not taking any chances of getting sick either..

    We should've looked at the pricing when we were there, but someone told me last year, they bought a small coffee maker for less than $20 at one of the supermarkets. He then just passed it along to someone as he was leaving...
