Great Trip

3rd time guest, loved it! The service is fantastic, the staff is incredible. I was a bit peeved that my room wouldn't be cleaned until about 4pm, but not a big deal bc they made sure that I had enough towels and what not. The beach has A LOT of seaweed in the afternoon, but they make sure to clean as much of it as possible. Entertainment team is the BEST!! Love it! Highly highly recommend Riu Palace Bavaro!

Adult family trip

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)

Happy new year! welcome 2015

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. I love RIU hotels, but this time it was awesome. Being able to experiebce the New Year´s eve buffet was an experience out of this world. Belkin, a waitress at the main restarurant is a 5 star employee. The same goes for Junior, a waiter at the same restaurant and Anthony the VIP pool guy. A family vacation i won´t forget.

The hotel has a very good location, the beach is the best on the shore, animation is great but the beach towels are a bit dirty.

super vacation

it was our first time in RIU. it is super. food is very good and a big variety. a lot of tropical fruits. the only weak point was our transportation from resort to the airport. VIP transportation was an 1 hour late and we almost miss our flight home.

Beautiful Beach

First hotel room had bugs. Hotel manager was not quick to accomodate room relocation. Second room was fine. Staff was ok but I didnt get the feel that they liked Americans. Met some very nice people who were there vacationing. All in all....it was ok.

Wonderful Family Vacation

We had a wonderful time. Everything was very clean, the staff was very friendly, there was plenty of food and there were many activities if you wanted to participate. The entertainment guys - Sexy Coco, Sexy Bobo and Little Miguel were a blast! As a family, we enjoyed the Cafe every evening after dinner. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They really made you feel welcome. The restaurant, cafe and bar staff were also very nice, friendly and helpful. No problem with mosquitoes while on the resort grounds. The only thing I would have improved on was the amount of equipment in the gym. They need more cardio equipment and more variation of free weights. 8 and 11 lbs weights just doesn't work for everyone.

Dining tip: In Hotel

3 tips: If you go to the nightly shows, get there early for a good seat. If you leave the resort for an excursion, use insect repellent before you leave the resort. The seaweed can be annoying...more of it during high tide, less with low tide. Bring hydrocortisone cream as the seaweed can give you a little rash if you handle it too much (my son played with it a little too much)
