Could scale back the buffet and increase...

A very well run hotel, with an excellent well trained motivated staff. Enormous main buffet, and very good specialty restaurants. Elaborate pool areas. All told a pleasant relaxing week at the Riu Palace.

My husband and I booked this All Inclusive Vacation for our Anniversary. First impressions: Staff was welcoming and offered a cool beverage on arrival. Once we were to the counter to check in is where we felt a little like they might be trying to "take us for a ride" We had booked (via the Internet) a king sized bed...
