We went as a large group for a friends wedding, overall it was good. some of us were ill (diarrhea problems) so turns you off especially since its a 5* but even trying to be careful what you eat didn't help. Wedding was great. Silly they charged the bride and groom for our dinner when it was a la cart...

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...

My wife and I traveled to the RIU Palace Punta Cana for our honeymoon in April 2012. I read a lot of the reviews before arriving and overall we were very pleased with our stay. We booked one of the suites and our room was one of the best in the place. It was on the 2nd floor and right...

This was our fifth visit to the Riu Palace Punta Cana and we have had great times there but I think the food on our recent visit is not upto the standard it used to be. We found that if you sat in the same section of the restaurant for your stay and had the same staff serving you they...

I just came back from travelling with a group of 23 included my husband and I and I can't think of very many complaints! I will start with the wedding. It was amazing and pretty stress free!

The hotel is beautiful. The staff are all very polite and friendly. The grounds are beautiful also as well as the beach. Be a little cautious of slippery floors if it rains. If you are planning to relax and enjoy some time off work, some drinks and a wide variety of food (ate waaaay too much) and some great scenery,...
