Better than ever

This was our first time traveling out of the country I was a little bit concerned not using a travel agent but everything was wonderful. The resort was great, staff was great. Cheap Caribean is the way to go. Great price, great value. We will use you again in the future. Thanks for everything!

Love this place

I stayed at this resort woth my girlfriend in April 2018. We arrived in the evening after 9 pm, so check-in was very quick and the staff appeared to be friendly and helpful. I was concerned that there would be a lot of walking to get to get around the complex, because it's a large resort, but you are never to far way anything on the property. There are a lot of activities and great entertainment to prevent anyone from getting bored. The food was good, but what really surprised me was the number of time they served lobster tail in the main buffet. I would certainly recommend this resort, and look forward to my next stay here.

Totally satisfied with Everything

RIU Republica was absolutely amazing! This is my second time staying at a RIU Property and from my first to now second stay at their properties, l will always look to stay with RIU. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there and it was everything that I expected and so much more. Although it was spring break time it didn’t affect anything at all. The rooms were clean and always tended to and restocked daily. Their were numerous of dining options that satisfied all of our daily pleasures. The entertainment was superb. The beach, pool, slides were always fun and plenty of space for everyone. Whenever made special request they always honored them. I shopped around for months trying to pick the perfect location for us and I’m thrilled that we picked RIU Republica.

Relaxing and Awesome

We had a great time in Punta Cana at the Riu Republica. The rooms and resort grounds were very clean. There were many pools and restaurants and they weren’t crowded. It was very easy to get a chair by the pool and also on the beach. Bar service was quick. The staff were enthusiastic, polite, and helpful. The food was amazing! We highly recommend this resort.

This way to the beach!

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.

It's Time To Get Your Riu On.


The cuisine selections are varied, with a great combo of those tried and true foods you never pass up (think pepperoni pizza, especially around 3 p.m. when you need a hearty, carbysnack) along with made-to-order steak, Italian favorites, Asian cuisine and delectable Dominican tastes. Also, "live" cooking stations where you can order up exactly what you want.
