best ever vacation

The beach was the most impressive part of the experience for me. The water was so warm you could spend the whole day in it without having to get out. It is remarkable how effective even a small gratuity is and how much it will improve your stay at an all inclusive. The buffet was so impressive you could eat every meal all week and not have the same thing twice, salmon and shrimp available at three meals a day, the quality of the food was excellent. The staff was helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel and the republica dominicana as a great place to vacation.

great vacation!

Everyone was warm and well coming. The hotel was beautiful. There were lots of things to do, especially sitting on the beautiful beach. I found this very relaxing, just what I needed. I'm not a buffet person, but I can't say enough about the food. We went to one of the restaurants it was good but didn't compare to the buffet. The next morning we canceled our reservations for one of the other restaurants and stayed with the marvelous buffet.

Couple Getaway

Went to Riu Palace for the week with my girlfriend and it was an incredible stay. The resort was very beautiful. The beaches and pool weren't too crowded. The drinks were strong for the most part. The best food, to us, was at the buffet. The restaurants that needed a reservation weren't anything too special and your food options weren't great. The rooms were clean but room service typically took awhile. Overall, a great stay.

The Riu Palace Bavaro is the Place to Stay

The Bavaro staff was excellent. From check-in to check-out, the entire staff, including the clubs, bars, and dining areas, were great. They were very cordial and professional. The only thing that I did not appreciate was finding my closet rummaged through a few times. Besides that, I still give this hotel 5 stars.

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.

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.
