Located within the Riu resort complex, Riu Palace Punta Cana All Inclusive towers over Arena Gorda, a pristine stretch of white sand dotted by palm trees. The palatial resort beckons with 612 rooms styled with old-world furniture and earth tones, plus multiple a la carte and buffet restaurants for any occasion.  A kids' club for children ages 4 to 12 entertains with supervised activities so that adults have private time for water sports or a spa treatment.

Dining

24-hour room service sates hunger at any moment, but thanks to the all-inclusive option, many guests sample the many restaurants on the property. Hot and cold buffet items, plus on-the-spot cooking stations are signatures, as are themed dinners three nights a week at Don Manuel. A la carte and reservations-required eateries globe trot from Italy to Japan.

Rooms

Traditional details brim throughout Riu Palace Punta Cana All Inclusive, from crown moldings to dramatic, hand-carved four-poster beds. A palette of espresso, burgundy and beige warms up the rooms, while lounge areas with steps up to the bedroom provide more comfort and space. A collection of 612 rooms caters to groups of all sizes, including families, singles and couples on a romantic getaway. Standard amenities cover hydromassage bathtub, satellite TV and patio or terrace.

Property features

Guests set the pace for leisure time at Riu Palace Punta Cana All Inclusive. A day might begin with an introductory Scuba lesson in the pool or a workout in the gym or four tennis courts. The hotel also keeps kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and snorkeling gear on hand for more adventurous travelers.

 

Parents make the most of supervised kids' activities for tykes ages 4 to 12, and the numerous live music and shows performed daily.

Awesome trip!!

bring sunscreen ($22 at resort)! Great entertainment staff and Buffett staff. Servers at specialty restaurants not as friendly. Pool drink servers were great (tip them!). Nightly shows were great! Food was best at buffet. Definitely try the japanese and Italian, Brazilian ok, didn't like steakhouse. Didn't try the other Krystal one. At the bar order Mamajuana!!!! Rooms ok, musty smelling but good enough. You will not want to be in the room anyways, the grounds are too nice! Beautiful lobby, grounds/gardens, beach. Pool was great but was dirty some mornings. Beach was beautiful but LOTS (aka heaping 3 foot piles) that was later removed w a tractor. Much nicer when removed. If you are looking for excursions, do the soana island one!!!! Bring your own towel and camera. stunning place. Overall a great stay and vacation. Miss it already!!

Annual family vacation

Riu Palace Punta Cana is beautiful. Very well kept and organized. The people where courteous, the food outstanding and the 3 rooms I had where always clean. 3 cons are: 1. No shuttle buses to go around each resort. 2. There was a constant smell of sewer near the pool and along the entrance of Riu Macau. 3. There was always a shortage of pool towels.

Beautifullllll

The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country with lovely people! I had an amazing time and of course Riu made me feel very welcomed! I do wish the property was bit more up kept meaning it can use some maintenance. For example our room had cracks in the walls and could use some new paint. The Riu fun stuff was not as engaged as I seen at other locations. For example, there were no pool games or any activities that promoted group fun while in the pool. The food could also be a little bit more cultural and geared towards your vacation location. For example, I was looking forward to having authentic dominican food and there was a lack thereof. But overall i still enjoyed my stay!
