We had a wonderful time. Picked same spot at pool everyday therefore we had the same server the whole week. He was awesome! Beach was beautiful. Food was decent. Only issue I had personally was lack of on sight laundry facilities. Clothes get damp and musty smelling very quickly. Other guests were a pleasure to be around except for the...

I was debating between a rating of 3 or 4. I will tell you why it is a 4. Loved the sand, beach and pool. I ate at the buffet the majority of the evennings and the choices were good and the service was incredible. Upgraded the room with ease. Grounds are beautiful and the rooms wait more luxurios that...

Likes: the beach is GORGEOUS. I like the swim up bar. The staff is very friendly (not as friendly as they were at the Colonial Majestic, but still very friendly). Dislikes: The pool is far too small with the amount of people in it. By the end of the day it is like swimming in pee and debris. The food...

Kind of cheating here as I haven't been on my trip yet. I just put a deposit down on a room for my wife and myself. Before I fully committ to the trip, I'd like to hear a bit about the alcohol Im a beer drinker, and am fine with the local flavor, whatever that may be. Any recent travelers...

April 2012 - We spent 2 weeks in the RIU Palace and were happy to find a beautiful beach and clear water. Also the pool is very large compared to the ones in the next resorts. The Palace style is not my type, I prefer the one at the Bavaro Palace, but older people love this style. The food is...

We spent a week here at the suggestion of an employee who is from the Dominican Republic. It was mostly a disappointment. The good things: nice, clean grounds, nice architecture, and a nice beach. Our room was nice; we had the most expensive suite a private outdoor jacuzzi. But otherwise the place was a disappointment. It is simply not on...

After a fair experience with a Riu hotel in Negril, Jamaica and a very bad experience with the Riu Taino I was skeptical about trying another Riu all inclusive hotel again. But due to the fact that a great price offer became available on the web, my wife decided to purchase a 10 day vacation at the Riu Palace Punta...

My wife and I traveled to the Riu Palace Punta Cana in April of 2012 and found that an adjacent Riu was being renovated and they had upgraded everyone from that resort to ours and the others around us. This left the resort tapped to full capacity. I would say that if you are the average person that likes the...

“Rooms on the outer edge are the quietest. Rooms facing the courtyard will hear loud music until 11-12pm every night. Be picky.”
