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.

New RIU Palace in Punta Cana

We are frequent Caribbean RIU Palace Customers and found this new look quite different. The old wood classical motif is gone and replaced by a modern straight line design. The lobby is a bit much but the room becomes comfortable once you spend a few days. The bath is part of the room but the shower is very large and we just never wanted to leave it. The in-room jetted tub is fun and was filled with bubbles and rose petals our last evening. Nice touch. Food was the typical RIU Palace restaurants but they were a bit more flexible in timing of reservations and service. Entertainment was very good. Veronica stands out and makes every day fun. She is a professional and talented. Ocean - wonderful. No more to say there. Just perfect. 24 hour sports bar very nice. need to pay for pool tables and games but still lots of fun. Late nights, early morning, bottles of Presidente and great coffee and cappuciono. Service and atmosphere of fun are in general excellent.

Beautiful hotel

We loved that the hotel was brand new and the rooms were excellent. The only downside was there wasn't too much in terms of lively entertainment on the hotel grounds. Also, no food available after 10p.m. especially if you want something to eat after you've had a few drinks. The room service menu selection was awful. They might as well not even offer room service. But overall, we had a very relaxing time. I would recommend this hotel.

Good Place

RIU's do a good job, the stafff is very friendly and always helpfull, however we had NO PROBLEMS, we did hear of another couple getting there room double booked, but it was taking care of, I did not care for the 2 twin beds pushed together to make our " king bed" but the rooms were new and nice, my only complaint was honestly the food, it was 4/5 rating, maybe it was because we were there for 6 days, you just get sick of eating, breakfast and lunch were always good 5/5, but dinner, I was sick of the food, and lacked interests the more nights we were there, im confortable with eating most foods, they could of provided more options, I woke up early and made resturant reservations, so you snooze you lose! we had no problems and ate at 3 of the 4, the resturant food was great, each food experience for the most part had excellant service, troubles only came when some staff members spoke no english,that was fustrating but we got by fine, the best part was the bars, lots of drinks, and they will make whatever you want with how much you want,very good, the pools we found 3,were all very clean and nice,and service poolside was good, beach was nice, shows were good each night (they try), the main lobby smells nasty,almost moldy or musty, no other part of the hotel was that that, you had acess to the other RIUs, one had a casino,its no vegas,but it was cute, shops were on the resort expensive but walk down the beach, and there is a ton of shops for cheap, we made transportation through online when we booked,the same guy is in charge of the excursions and any info you need and he was there everyday, that was very helpful, the excursions were awsome,it is scary to leave the resort,but there pretty organized, I would never go off the resort alone, it is scary,no traffic signals,people drive crazy! overall I would go back if I had too, Id only stay at the new one (riu palace bavaro) though,be/c the others are junky compared to them, nice trip,nice hotel, decent food

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

the shops on the resorts are very expensive, walk down the beach to the right, its about a 10 min walk and you will see a ton of cheap shops (on the beach) you can barter at with the people, they even let us take the cigers back to the room without any money be/c they knew we would come back

excellent food, mediocre accomodation

Modern design with tacky raspberry-yellow colors, excellent beach, very attentive and professional staff, excellent food (daily seafood of all kinds from shrimp to lobsters, different meats, fish, salads), local and good international drinks, barmen are very proficient and can mix excellent drinks. The resort is new. If you are not bothered by poor landscaping and boring entertainment, that is the place for you.
