Excellent stay, RIU standards

Arrived on the opening day dec 2nd, all went well, the property is very nice. My only negative is the same at all RIU's.....the beds. Always hard as a rock, everything else was perfect.

If you shop the RIU complex stores, dont hesitate to offer lower prices...they settled for 50% advertised prices on many items.

Amazing - Fantastic time away!

This hotel was wonderful. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to do anything to meet your needs. The grounds were beautiful and clean. Everywhere you turned there was a staff member cleaning / or available for you. I went on this vacation with my boyfriend and two other couples - we all had a fantastic time - no complaints at all. Do not look any further - this is the place to stay.

Sixth Time In Punta Cana

The RIU Bavaro Palace was the best resort we have stayed at in Punta Cana. The staff is always very friendly and the food was delicious with a very wide variety to choose from. Bavaro beach is the most beautiful beace in the Carribean and provides endless hours of walking on the beach.

Fun Fancy Pants Vacation

Stayed here with two girlfriends for 5 days. We loved it! Got a great value for the jacuzzi room with pool view and had VIP access. Room has a liquor dispenser and a fully stocked mini bar that they checked regularly. Food was better than average and the drinks were great. We even got more rum when we asked! There was plenty to do and the evening shows and dancing were both fun. We felt safe the entire stay. The place is clean and the beach was amazing!!! Just remember, you are on island time!

Get a jacuzzi room or stay in one of the Villlas to get VIP access. Great pool with beds and a swim up bar that doesn't get crowded!
