But served same things everyday , so don't expect a change. Dinners at specialty restaurants .... Well they go from average ( Japanese) to awful (Steakhouse).....the steak at the Japanese was...

We stayed May 27th through June 1st. I have nothing bad to say about this place. I booked an Ocean View Suite and asked for a room on the quiet side. We stayed in Room 0030 and it was awesome and quite. I was really wanting a room off the first floor and they were going to move us to...

We stayed at this hotel the last week of May. They have a very friendly staff and the hotel is super clean. The reception is very helpful and the food is good. There is a wide variety and the fruit selection was amazing. You can't say it was a professional chef's art, but it was good. The french/italian restaurant is...

We normally don't stay at all inclusive hotels, though we were surprised to find what the package offered was quite reasonable. The facility is nicely designed, great pools, easy access from all rooms to all amenities as well as a white sand beach. It appears that it is well managed and certainly well maintained. Service in all areas was top...

It always amazes me what people find to complain about! The Riu Palace is exceptional! We stayed May 18th thru the 25th and absolutely hated to leave. We are in our almost mid 60's and were celebrating our 7th anniversary. I had emailed the hotel a couple of days before our arrival telling them that. They apparently did not get...

The Riu Palace was outstanding. The service was great and the food was excelent. No complaints like another Riu I have been to. They always had someone cleaning and not one dirty spot to see in the hotel. The sunrise in the loby bar area every morning was outstanding and the staff always around to help or get anything you...

Beautiful Resort and setting. I have never been in a cleaner hotel in my life. Only complaint was that a wedding party from Calgary arrived on the same flight as us and were very noisy and abnoxious. The Sunwing pilot threatened to have the plane greeted by police if they didn't settle down. The tiled floors carry the sound quite...
