Beware of this resort

When we went to check in, they told us that they overbooked and didn't have a room for us. They wanted to move us to a sister family resort. We told them that we booked this hotel because it is an ADULT ONLY resort. They did give us a room in the worst part of the resort. Near a disco that went to 4 AM and the casino where all people leaving were loud and woke us up.There was a alarm that went on and off all night long. The food and staff were very good.

Great vacation

Nice resort for adults only, although the beautiful beach is also access able to guests at adjacent family resorts. In our 60s, my wife & I appreciated the age spread at Riu Palace Macao, skewing more to middle- age & seniors than to slim, toned young people. Young newlyweds may question this choice for a honeymoon, but we enjoyed mixing with all. We met people from all over, including many British & Canadian guests. We learned that many had enjoyed multiple visits to the resort; others said they planned to return, which says a lot for the place! Pools are beautiful & clean, although the bar pool could be a little larger. There were plenty of lounge chairs at the pools & Beach. Rooms are spacious & clean. All the staff were friendly & went out of their way to be helpful. We went to 3 restaurants & really liked the steak place. We never located 1 restaurant & arrived at another only to find it closed! The hotel could do better in communicating this information, along with providing a better map of the resort. The map provided showed 5 resorts, none with details one could read without a magnifier. This was our first booking through Cheap Caribbean, but it was very satisfactory & we will use it again.

Okay resort beautiful beaches

The good was the weather and beach. We really enjoyed the sun and warm weather. The sand on Bavaro beach is wonderful. The resort was okay. Guess we got what we paid for. Room had mildew smell that might be common to the DR. Bed and shower were good. Food selection was pretty bad. Just seemed lot of things they served for food were tasteless or wrong temperature The staff was nice too. We enjoyed getting to know Bermudez at the swim up bar and many other folks there. Crowd staying there mostly Canadian, from cold US states as well as European enjoying the sun. Seemingly many retiree age folks which we didn't mind, but made for somewhat quiet adults only vibe Nice that it's relatively close to the airport. Only other comment was American Airlines made it a disaster getting home cancelling our direct flight. They blamed it on weather but had cancelled it almost 24 hours before the weather came. It made our trip last another day having to connect through Miami to get home.

Very nice time

We had a very nice time at this Resort. The service was good especially around the pool and on the beach. The shows were good too. The room was a little old in that one of our electrical plugs did not work and you had to be sure to hold the handle down when you flush the toilet, but it was extremely clean and very comfortable. The food options were good not quite as good as food we've had in other all inclusive resorts on other Islands, but it was still quite good. One night for supper I had three lobster tails! I would recommend this Resort and would go again.

What's to Love

No reservations needed for any of the restaurants.

The 16-mile stretch of the legendary Arena Gorda Beach that will be your backyard of bliss.

It's an adults-only paradise = no cannonballs or high-pitched squealing at the pool.

The delicious treatments at the spa like anxiety-erasing massages, facials, and body wraps.

Stealing away at the Beach Eden, Soana Island. It's like being marooned, but in a good way.

Free WiFi throughout the rockin' resort. Update your status 'til the sea cows come home.

The handy, dandy liquor dispensers in your room. You can have that hour of happy any time you want.

 

What We'd Change

Drinks at Pacha nightclub are not included in the all inclusive package. But with four other bars offering free beverages, as well as Copacabana Amphitheater, you'll be just fine.

 

Why You Should Go

It's only 19 miles from the airport - that beach vacay you've been craving will be unfolding ASAP.

Three world-class golf courses are nearby. Grab those clubs. Play like you mean it.

Try your hand at water polo or Volleyball. Body boarding or Pedaloes. Get all sporty.

Set your sights on the beautiful sugar fields of Higuey and Altos de Chavon - a picture-worthy day trip.

You can ride horses at the Caribbean Cachondeo, or hang with the stingrays at the Marinarium Marine Park.

Check out Caribbean Street - shop 'til you drop. Then start all over again.
