The RIU Palace Macao was very nice and the abundant palm trees made the beach wonderful when 1 person wants shade while the other wants sun. The food was delicious (especially the grilled grouper) although the steakhouse was our least favorite restaurant - they overcooked the lobster and my medium rare steak was definitely more medium.

We visited the Riu the first week of June. This was our first trip to the DR but our 10th all inclusive trip. The hotel itself is nice, the beach is wonderful and we had a great check-in. However, the food at this resort is less than desire able. I had the same thing for breakfast everyday. The lunch buffet...

My wife and I stayed here from June 15 to 19. While the place is beautiful, great food, nice rooms, very nice pool/beach, our vacation was marred by a reception agent named Raphael. I was informed that reservations for the specialty restaurants had to be made in advance, and I called the hotel a week ahead and was told I...

I stayed here when I went to the DR for the first time and I have to say it was an ok experience. It is not for young adults who are looking for more to do. The pool bars and most of the activities if any close around 5 or 6 pm. My ocean view room was right above the...

We had our honeymmon here and to be honest I can not find any real fault. The service was second to none and from the moment we arrived we were treated like kings and queens. The staff were professional and curtius. My glass was never empty. The food was out of this world, lots of different meats and fish to...
