Our husband and I had an amazing honeymoon and it was perfect for couples. The beach was beautiful, the staff was kind, friendly and superb! They were attentive and constantly kept our fridge full with exactly what we wanted and would bring us anything we needed. The bathrooms were beautiful and clean and our room was cleaned to perfection. The...

We were here from 14th to 28th February 2014, actually left 1st March as we had a 24 hour delay with Thomson. First impressions of the hotel were very good. On arrival in our room we were called to make sure we were happy with the room. The room did smell of smoke and they sent housekeeping to spray the...

A 33 year old traveling couple that has been here for about twelve hours now. Let me give my first impressions and I'll continue to update as conditions exist. Check in went fairly quickly although the receptionist was a little hard to understand. We were charged exactly what we expected and sent to our room. The room is nice and...

(2/24-3/3, 2014) A well maintained property, a spacious beach with lots of palm trees and beach chairs, perfect weather and a friendly and attentive staff. If we hadn't been to other AI's in the past, I think everything would have been just fine. So, what's not to like? Despite booking last July, and despite emailing a week ahead of our...

A group of 30 of us just returned 3/1/14 from the DR and stayed at the Riu Palace Macao. The scenery was beautiful..the hotel staff was amazing. If you tip a couple dollars at meals and when you get every few rounds of drinks they treat you even better. Our group of professionals usually vacation together every year in Mexico...

Nice friendly welcome upon arrival. The room was very clean. We had a garden view which suited us as we were out all day. The main buffet restaurant was good with so much choice that there was something for everyone. We especially enjoyed the delicious creamy porridge with cinnamon. One bowl of that filled me for the morning. The a...

Recently enjoyed two weeks at this well run hotel. I agree with most of the positive reviews this property receives & doubt that many people would be genuinely disappointed in a holiday here. Rooms were very clean on arrival and were kept that way by the excellent staff. Shower design was a little strange,as the main wall,separating it from the...
