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.

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.

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

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.
