Best all-inclusive for the money

We have been to a number of all-inclusive resorts and this one is near the top overall. The service is really good. They can't do enough for you. They are well trained. Kudos to the management for this. The entertainment (animation ) was great. Some cynics may say it is a little corny but it was fun and entertaining. The emcee Sheila is hilarious. The grounds are beautiful. The pools are clean. The room was clean and the maid service is excellent. Could the AC been colder? Yes but it was not bad at all. The food is good to very good. Not gourmet but you are not paying for gourmet so it is plentiful and very good. If you want to drink all day and all night you can. I would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful vacation

This was my second visit to this resort and enjoyed it as much as our first several years ago. The beach is second to none. Plenty of loungers to choose. Beach is very clean and didn't see much evidence of sea weed. Probably the nicest beach that I have seen all over the Caribbean. I love the walkway right behind the beach that you can walk to shopping and seeing some of the other Rue resorts. There were some local vendors selling their wares, but they were not pushy and were very respectful. We did purchase some jewelry from a young man named Jonathan and it was fun to dicker for price with him. We were somewhat disappointed with our room. It was very dated and needs a complete overhaul. The screen door leading to the balcony was off the track which made it hard to open and close. The bathroom also needs some new fixtures. We did enjoy the overhead shower. The room was spotlessly cleaned everyday. The food was not nearly as good as I remember. A lot was overcooked and not hot. We tried a lot of the local dishes and it is a mixed bag. We especially enjoyed the varieties of fish and seafood. The salad bar has a huge selection of salads, cheeses and vegetables. . The soups were mostly good. They have a beautiful selection of desserts but it was hard to find anything that we enjoyed. They don't have a lot of flavor to them, they don't seem to have the sweetness that I am use to eating. We found a large selection of tropical fruits from kiwi, mango, pineapple,passion fruit, papaya, etc.at every meal. Yum! The best part of the breakfast buffet are the fruit smoothies. Our favorite was the banana but they are all delicious. We always found something we liked and the variety was almost endless. The very best of of this resort is the amazing staff. From the servers in the restaurants, to the bar staff, to housekeeping, to everyone I came in contact with. They made us feel welcome and they couldn't do enough to make our vacation special.

Great Place

This was our first trip to Punta Cana. We have been to other beach countries and no where compares to Punta Cana. Riu Palace Macao is very beautiful. Clean and quiet. All of the employees are very helpful and interact with clients on a personal level. The beach is absolutely amazing. Walked over a mile to explore other resorts beachfront and none of the other compared to Riu. Keep up the good work We plan on returning again within the next year. Thanks for the relaxing, wonderful vacation.

Best Purchase Deal

I spent hours reviewing all the different All-Inclusive Resorts in Punta Cana, DR. I decided on RIU Palace Macao (adults only) through Cheapcaribbean.com. After reading the comments they had the best. There were a few negative comments but overall great ratings. The weather was great! The hurricane missed us. It rained briefly during the day then cleared up. Some evening after 12:00 am it came down hard & in the morning sunny. The Resort has their landscape crews always maintaining the grounds. The Resort & Beaches were great! They had RIU Resort adjacent to us on both sides that you were allowed to take advantage of. The Rooms were nice. Large walk in shower & full length jacuzzi. Every morning they would restock your refrigerator with beverages. They would come twice a Day, morning - clean your room, clean towels etc.. And in the evening replace your towels that you used earlier that late afternoon & made special towel decorated figures with flowers. There were at least 4 Resturants but enjoyed the Buffet the most. Good variety of foods & selections. Great entertainment throughout the day & evening. Everyone was very polite & courteous. After 11:00pm nice night club, small casino. It’s up to you if you want to be active & have fun or just relax & enjoy the romantic atmosphere, tanning, walk on the beach ... Evening live music in the lounge area & live entertainment shows that were excellent. They had us laughing so hard, we were in tears. We did couple of excursions. (Santo Domingo & EcoSafari) Very Nice! Our group of 6, all had a excellent time. The entertainment managers & his team were excellent.

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.
