I have never reviewed on TripAdvisor before but after reading Jet Set Scotty's review I felt that I had to hopefully reassure those who may have a holiday booked to this hotel. I believe that my wife and I were at the hotel at that same time as in the earlier review but our recollections were totally different. We have...

I may first start my review by stating that I stayed here for 3 weeks, and could not wait to come home! Never before have I lost so much weight on holiday before. The food was so bad we had to go to local supermarkets to get crisps and SURVIVAL food and so on and go on a 40 minuite...

We had visited this hotel in 2008 and since then it has had a makeover.....and is much much better. We visited in March 2014 this time. The rooms are well decorated and although we had a room overlooking Caribbean Street which wasn't ideal and we were unable to change, even though we were returning guests, it was adequate. The only...

We’ve just returned from the Riu Palace Macao. We made two requests directly to the hotel before arrival, both of which were honoured. The first was a room on the third floor, which was lighter, brighter and quieter than the lower floor rooms, and the second was Soya Milk for Breakfast. The Soya milk was a bit more of a...

What a surprise. I stopped going to Riu hotels some time ago because they were so dark and depressing. This hotel has had a makeover. No more dark furniture and dreary soft furnishings. Replaced by white modern stylist decor. Room was very bright and comfortable. Great bathroom with very large shower. Food was OK. Staff very pleasant and friendly. However,...

This is a smallish hotel on a beautiful palm lined beach. If you like to walk,jog or run this is a perfect beach to do so. The food and service in the hotel is first class with a good variety of restaurants. There is even waiter service on the beach

Just returned May 6,2014 from a fabulous week at this wonderful resort. It was our 5th vacation to Punta Cana, but our first to a Riu.
