I travelled with my boyfriend for 10 days, aged 20 & 24, and we both had a great time, a very relaxing stay. The hotel is nice and perfect for a relaxing holiday, there is not too much to do on a night, especially because when we were there the casino was closed which was disappointing but we got a...

Weve just got back from Riu Macao Palace. We found it to be a lovely clean hotel with good food. We ate at the main buffet restaurant and 3 of the speciality restaurants. For our tastes we preferred the Italian restaurant, but the Japanese and Krystal restaurant were ok, but we could always tind something tastey in the buffet restaurant....

We are just back from a Thomson package to Rui Palace Macao. Flew on the "Dreamliner " 787 . Paid for extra leg room and yes it felt more than Premium Economy on Virgin to Montego Bay. However it seems daft on an aircraft with so few toilets that Thomson Premium are curtained off from Economy! Punto Cana airport transfer...

My husband & I spent a week here and could not have asked for a more relaxing time. The airport is very easy to navigate. We took the advice of other reviewers and paid our entry fee on line which allowed us to bypass a fairly long line. We then found a gentleman to help us with our luggage (we...

We were 4 couples vacationing from March 29-April 5. We decided to travel by taxi from the airport to the resort ($40 per taxi) and were so happy we did, especially when we saw the bus arrive almost 2 hours later than us. As expected, because we checked in so early our rooms were not ready. Although we sent an...

Stayed April 1-5. First time there. Beautiful beach, clean. Calm water, great for swimming. The resort was small, but cozy and nice because of that. Entertainment was interesting, but what I expected. Rooms clean and service overall was good, especially at front desk. Very similar to resorts in Mexico. The drinks are weak and you have to ask for top...

Overall, this resort was great. The beach was lovely and the rooms were very clean. However, there were times that I felt the front desk clerks could have been more helpful. That being said, I would still definitely go back. The food is a bit iffy, we never went hungry but we felt the quality could use improvement. Reservations are...

Having never been to the Dominican before and having read previous reviews I was a little apprehensive. I need not have wasted any time worrying what a fantastic hotel in a most beautiful setting. We were on the third floor so away from any noise at night, not that there appeared to be any. During the day we could hear...

Great Vacation! We were there from March 31st through April 5th. This is an adult only resort, just what we wanted. Rooms were spotless it seems that all the employees of this resort work to make sure that guests have the best vacation ever. Even in the "buffet" restaurant tables were set with white table cloths and nice china. So,...
