    Great Resort Wonderful Beach

    The resort was excellent, 5 star. Only issue was the location of our room which we would request to change next time. And the size of the beds. Double beds aren't ample for two people to share. Otherwise a beautiful location, excellent food, wonderful beach. My family would definitely return.

    Excellant Vacation

    The hotel and grounds are exemplary. The beach was beautiful and you can walk forever. I never had a problem getting a chair at the beach or by one of the pools. This is not a party hotel, and by 11:30 pm everything is quiet, which suited me just fine, I was there for the sunshine! The food was okay, there was plenty to choose from, not 5 star but still good. I found that most everyone that worked at this hotel were extremely friendly. I would return.

    Riu Hotel

    Great Hotel, recently referbished. Friendly hotel staff and beautiful beach location. The food and drinks were very good. Not too far from a International Airport so it is easy to get to by airport shuttle.

    Riu Palace Punta Cana

    This place is amazing. Friendliest staff and accomdations are fantastic. If you want to be out with others, there are always activities going on or if you want to be alone, you can choose that as well. The hotel is great with children and activities for them too. It rained for a few days but you cannot manage the weather! Have a fabulous time.

    Excellent holiday at Riu Palace Punta Cana

    This was, another, excellent & vfm stay at a Riu hotel. This property is in keeping with other Palace hotels we’ve enjoyed staying at over the last 15y or so. Rooms were comfortable & spacious, the pools were good & the staff were excellent. Unusually you don’t need to book any of the 5 speciality restaurants & the main restaurant offers the usual great Riu choice of an international buffet with something for everyone
