Having booked a holiday to the Macao months ago, I had been looking closely at the reviews here. After now having arrived back after an amazing 10 night stay, I can honestly say that this was the best holiday we have ever been on and the best hotel we have stayed in. The complaints and bad reviews are not merited...

This was a fabulous hotel. The staff were fantastic and sorted out the few problems we had with our room quickly. They couldn't do enough for us. The food in the main restaurant was 100% on variety, quantity and quality. Themed restaurants were not as good but still worth a visit. I would definitely go back. It was definitely worth...

We recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Riu Palace Macao, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The Macao has been renovated and we thoroughly enjoyed our adults only all-inclusive vacation. Our room was spacious and included a private balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. The walk-in shower was huge and a much needed improvement. The food at the...

First time in Punta Cana and it was great. The hotel is modern and nicely appointed. The RIU macao is the adults only RIU property so it makes it very serene. No screaming kids running around which is fantastic! Perfect place to just relax. It has two great pools- one with a swim up bar. We never had an issue...

There were a mixed age of guests here but I will admit there were a lot of older guests than at other resorts I have been to. That being said, I am in mid 50's. If you are looking for night life this isn't the place to go; however, it was very relaxing and laid back. On both check in...

I am 31 and i traveled with a group of single friends that were ages 26 to 30. This place is mellow and boring. Only Old people should stay at this resort.
