Amazing Vacation

Very relaxing, couldn't ask for more. Only complaint is because of the humidity, the pillow cases smelled like old laundry.

Great vacation

The entire staff treats you very well and always go out of their way to make sure your stay is as best as possible...the rooms are nice and the food is great. Nightly shows are always entertaining... Great hotel for couples and families.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

A few extra dollars can go a long way. Always buy any outside attractions from a good rep in the hotel lobby. Someone will always try to give you a cheaper price..but the service and experience may not be as good. Ask the front desk clerk who are the best reps to go with.

Great place! Watch the vendors.

Loved the Riu, loved the staff, loved Punta Cana. Didn't love the CD I bought for $15 that was blank. Only negative, so not much to complain about.

Best of the five RIU Resorts in Punta Cana

The RIU Palace Bavaro is a nice hotel. I was disappointed to see the low quality floor tile used throughout the hotel and in the rooms. The grout is very dirty and they used the cheapest gray ceramic tile you could find anywhere. Very disappointing for their high end resort. Rooms are nicely appointed yet seem to lack color and have a bit of a sterile feeling, they have the same tile issues and seem to be older than they are due to poor material choices and upkeep. The room has cracks in the walls, the paint on the majority of the exterior is already in disrepair and looks like they painted it before the stucco cured. The food was okay but not as good as the RIU Guanacaste in Costa Rica. Overall it's the nicest RIU in the location. Excellent beach. Smaller restaurants and limited options. Limited nightly entertainment was disappointing.

Much needed getaway

Great place. The food is good but doesn't have too much seasoning. The floors/tile around the property get very slippery when wet. The staff is amazing...we were able to change rooms per our request when we had trouble sleeping due to noisy neighbors. The property is clean and well kept. The selection of liquor for drinks is great and the drinks are made well. The activities and shows offered are enough to keep you occupied. And the beach is beautiful and relaxing. It is pricey. However, I definitely will return.
