Great last minute trip

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.

Fun Fancy Pants Vacation

Stayed here with two girlfriends for 5 days. We loved it! Got a great value for the jacuzzi room with pool view and had VIP access. Room has a liquor dispenser and a fully stocked mini bar that they checked regularly. Food was better than average and the drinks were great. We even got more rum when we asked! There was plenty to do and the evening shows and dancing were both fun. We felt safe the entire stay. The place is clean and the beach was amazing!!! Just remember, you are on island time!

Get a jacuzzi room or stay in one of the Villlas to get VIP access. Great pool with beds and a swim up bar that doesn't get crowded!

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.

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.
