Our first time at an all inclusive resort

My sister and I took this trip as a much needed get away. This was our first time out of the country and at an all inclusive resort. We are easy to please, we do not need 5 star service by any means. The Riu is a place we would definitely go back to! It was clean, the staff was always very nice, and it was a good time. We spent most of our time by the ocean but when we did spend a day within the resort by the pool there was always stuff going on! The staff had activities during the day, as well as at night. And when there wasn't planned entertainment the guests provided it! Lots of stuff to do! We are really not picky when it comes to food. The breakfast there was good, a lot to choose from! We only ate lunch one day and that was good too from the buffet. For dinner we only tried two restaurants because those were the two that sounded the best to us; the Italian restaurant and the Steak place. Both were good! If you go to the Italian one, the pizza is some of the best I've had. Once again its nothing special, but for cooking for so many people they did a good job, you certainly won't go hungry. The resort was pretty big so we didn't even get to experience all of it but that's okay, we'd like to come back!

Great purchase

Everything was great but the room. Was told king size bed but it was two separate beds. Two outlets in the room did not work. Ocean view was not really a an ocean view.

Not My First Choice

This hotel is ok, but only if you are looking for a "Spring Break" type atmosphere. People vomited in the pool twice in one week during my stay. Unpleasant to say the least. Daily activities by the pool areal are minimal, and the set up with the "quiet" pool being the largest and closest to the beach is poor planning. Food is ok. One of the largest issues was the room doors are weighted and slam if a person does not hold on to and close them. This happened at all hours of the night and early morning, creating a very difficult sleeping situation. The other issue was I needed water in my room, as it was not left that day and I called in the afternoon to have some brought in. No one came in the 2 hour window prior to my going to dinner, when I arrived back at 11 after the evening show still no water. I called again to have some brought up and there was no one answering the phone at the front desk! Thank god it was not a security issue. The BIGGEST issue we had was at check in - we had a party of 12 and 6 rooms were supposed to be reserved. Apparently one of the party had had a second room put under her name in error instead of under the person is should have been listed with. The front desk manager refused to contact the travel agency to help clear it up and we had to spend over 3 hours working to resolve via phone. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! The general staff however was AMAZING -

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

A palatial retreat where the mixin' and the minglin' is only with adults - no kids or crying babies at this resort.

You're located on Dominican's Macoa Beach - the mind-boggling ocean views go on for days.

Taking the introductory scuba lesson (it happens in the pool) - you'll be ready for the ocean waters in no time.

The pools are spacious - you won't bump into each other - no one wants to be that close (especially if the bathrooms are faraway).

When you're ready for your next cocktail, all you have to do is just swim on over to the bar.

Detoxing in the steam bath at the gym (all those icky work impurities will stream out of your pores).

The whirlpool bath that makes you feel like a jelly fish.

 

What We'd Change

The resort is large, but you really don't feel crowded and the restaurants can accommodate everyone easily and there is plenty of room at the pools.

 

Why You Should Go

So close to the airport you'll land and be at the resort in a flash - you want your vacay to start immediately!

The Mediterranean-style village Altos de Chavon is near - authentic architecture, swoon-worthy boutiques, cafes & more.

Also in Altos de Chavon, check the Amphitheatre for Kandela! - don't miss this Caribbean musical review.

See the lush landscapes at the Punta Cana Ecological Reserve: plants, animals, coral reef, freshwater lagoons & more.

Hone your golf skills and tune up your tennis swing - both are available near the resort.

Hotel Description

Riu Republica (Adults-Only): All-Inclusive Palatial Paradise

Soak up the sun and drench yourself in what will be your everything-you-want reality for the next week - pool/beach time all day, food and drink at your disposal (and you don't have to make it, serve it, clean it), your choice of activities to do (or not to do - remember: this is YOUR week - no schedule, no lists, no kids!)
