2nd honeymoon

First time out of the country and we loved what this place had to offer. We will be staying in more Riu resorts around the world but this particular one was very rewarding. We will defiantly be back to visit.

Fantastic Summer Vacation!

Would recommend Mon, Aug 3, 2015
This was my seventh time at a RIU resort and the RIU Palace Bavaro is by far the best! From the food to the friendly helpful staff, the entire stay exceeded my expectations. The rooms were comfortable and modern. The bartenders were good! Definitely plan to go back again!

Great Honeymoon Location

Would recommend Thu, Apr 16, 2015
Since the moment of the arrival, despite we got there at 1am in the morning, the hotel staff was very friendly and they gave us right away our suite. We stayed at the suite with the jacuzzi terrace and it was great. The room cleanliness was noticeable giving a very fresh sense. The hotel premises are very beautiful, no need to go to the a la carte restaurants since you can find pretty much everything and very good quality foods at the buffet. In the Calle Caribeña (Caribbean street), you could find a bunch of souvenirs stores that can help you find great stuff you can take home to your relatives. we bargained our way through prices and we could lower approximately 30 prices of the souvenirs. The renova spa is a must, you can definitely feel relaxed an fresh after a session with the very professional personnel they have. There were two down sides in our trip. The first one was there was too many seaweed on the beach, at first we didn't even bother but 3 days latter we started to get a rash of allergies on our skin do to the contact to this seaweed. And the second down side was the transportation from the hotel back to the airport through transportation services (you can buy them at the moment of the reservation), apparently there is a harsh competition between taxi drivers to get the passengers, so when the travel service came and picked us up, other taxi drivers blocked our way out of the hotel (This all occurred in the riu complex premises and the security guards did nothing) and our chauffeur instead of rushing to the lobby area in order to get protection he stayed and did not move the car despite that we insistently told him to move to a safer location. At the end the other taxi drivers left after a huge discussion in which i had to participate in order to calm things down and we got to the airport almost 1hr later. Didn't missed our flights barely. at the end a great experience that had a terrible ending.

Beds were a little too firm, but a good hotel. Everything is reasonably close by and the buffet had a nice variety. Beach is amazing, but there are people walking up and down the beach selling cigars, etc.

Adult family trip

Would recommend Wed, Feb 11, 2015
I travel to D.R. at least once a year. This is a nice hotel shaped like a castle and is a short walk to the beach. The food is better than most all-inclusives although there are other resorts with better food. Pros: Not alot of walking to travel to the beach. Not really harassed as much on the beach for trinkets. Entertainment staff is fun and energetic. Cons: Need more daily activities. Casino is not big at all and most machines were broken. Worth the cab fare to go to he Hard Rock Cafe which has the best casino, even better than the town casino. Food is good although options at nearby Melia is better. I would recommend this hotel. I had a great time with my family and love that everything was close. I traveled with a disabled aunt who was able to commute around the resort with no issue. Some of the other resorts are not as accessible (i.e. Melia)

Great last minute trip

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with my experience at the RIU Palace Bavaro, i booked my stay at the very last minute with very little to choose from i was not expecting much but my experience proved to be nothing but wonderful. The hotel is beautifully situated on a gorgeous beach with plenty of activities or to just relax and soak in the Caribbean sun, the bar pool and regular pool are another great alternative option. Gorgeous property, surrounded by green gardens and palm trees. To the contrary of other reviews, the room was very clean and chic ( air conditioned) and always stocked with water bottles. I stayed in the superior suite looking over the garden with a further ocean view. The food was good, even the pickiest eater would find something to eat. Frankly, i enjoyed the buffet just as much a the a la carte restaurants. The staff was friendly, very attentive around the pool area during the day. I also enjoyed the spa experience, amazing massage very much what i need to unwind. My only complains are:1. for a 4 star hotel, i was surprised to learn that the hotel reception did not have a first aid kid handy. the other was the difficulty communicating with the staff as most did not speak english. Otherwise wonderful experience, you get what you pay for. i have traveled the worlds and stayed at 5 star hotels and some fell short to my stay at the RIU Palace Bavaro, Highly recommend, and i would certainly return. Note*there is other properties owned by the RIU and i was able to check them out but in comparison as they were cheaper were not as nice as the RIU palace.
