Great Birthday trip

I booked this on a whim for my husband’s birthday. We had an amazing time. Very friendly staff. The beach was fantastic the pools were super fun. There were a ton of activities and shows to enjoy. We will absolutely be returning! If you get the opportunity go to the pink party.

4 Palms for the Riu Republica

We were looking for a quick getaway, and figured since we'd never been to the DR, we'd give it a go. Glad we did. Very nice facility, although the bright white rectangular buildings struck me as less than elegant. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Excellent variety of restaurants, there are bars (almost) everywhere, we had no problem finding chairs at either the pools or the beach, and the minibar in our very comfortable room never ran dry. If you're looking for a snack mid-day, avoid the sports bar; it's food area is often a mess, and head for the jerk chicken stand on the beach or the mini-buffet in Quisqueya. The restaurants we tried (buffets, Italian, Indian, steakhouses) are all full or partial buffets, and some of the hot food on the buffets was just lukewarm. Best steaks were hot off the grill in the Italian restaurant. Go figure. Service in the restaurants was spotty; sometimes just bad, but generally very good to excellent. Overall, great value for what we paid; I'd definitely go back.

Good value

It’s exactly what you’re booking. Cheap. The food was awful minus the jerk chicken shack, and the alcohol was cheap and poor quality. You have ability to buy at duty free at airport. Pick up a bottle of your choice you will want it. The sand and water were the most beautiful I have been too. Gorgeous. Everything is very nice and up to date and stunning with the exception of the food, alcohol, and rooms. Beds aren’t very comfortable. Bring a pillow. Price was right and everything else was amazing. 95% of the employees are so nice and accommodating and the service was very good.

Overall great value

Beaches & pools were great. An abundance of pools so never felt crowded. Plenty of chairs on beach & by pools. Clean room daily & the staff was extremely nice. Some of the nicest people we have met. Swim up bars is most pools. I’m a picky eater but there is a variety of choices during normal eating hours. If you need food after 10pm make sure to have your own snacks because their 24 hour snacks are not desirable.

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!) Riu Republica knows exactly how to pamper, so be prepared not to lift a precious finger all week - unless it's to signal your favorite server over for a cocktail refresher - now that's completely required.

We are proud to support the Punta Cana Promise as part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that True Beach Lovers are safe while traveling to one of the top beach destinations in the Dominican Republic. The Punta Cana Promise reaffirms our commitment to a set of security standards in one of the safest spots in the Caribbean.
