Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Some areas of the rooms need upgrade and/or up keep maintenance but over it was a great experience.

Food was horrible. No poor air conditioning. The facility is worn down and definitely not worth what we paid for “vip”. Bottom shelf liquor. Room dispensers empty. Bath shower head broken & jacuzzi dirty. Very sad that this deteriorated Resort post deceiving pictures to trap customers. We were truly disappointed

We love everything. This is 5th time when we back to riu palace Bavaro . We love everything we feel there like at home ! All workers people we treat like as family !!! We love them and we wait all year to back

Amazing resort, friendly staff. Safe environment for everyone to enjoy relaxing at and have fun. Tips are much appreciated by the staff members so take a few extra bucks to shed out throughout your stay. I’ll definitely be returning back later this year again with my friends.

We had to call every morning to get hot water to our room...food was very disappointing...a lot of undercooked meats were served

I like everything but specially the food. the employees are very friendly, respecful. I have never been treated like this in my life. I will go back again for sure.

What I liked is that the people that worked there were sooo nice

The property was beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and super attentive. The beach was beautiful and clean. The food was on point as well. We always felt safe as well. If you are on the fence, you should just go. Make sure you have Julio or Mello as your servers in the Monte Cristo! Make sure you throw these guys a few dollars too. They work hard to make sure you don’t need anything!

The bar service inside the room was fair.,,, and the sports bar needs more food variety,

The water park for the kids is awsome. The buffet and the restaurantes are above average, not bad at all.

Do not stay here! This was a complete waste of money. Everything went awful on this trip. They overbooked the hotel. Rooms had no AC and moldy smell. Roaches and insects everywhere. Huge mosquito problem. My family and I stomach issues. Customer service was absolutely terrible. Only positive was the Pool party.

The property overall was nice, the beach was AMAZING! We didn’t like the lack of food choices, the fact that the pool closed at 6pm, and the fact that we were told we could go to ANY Riu for drinks, however when we did we got denied drinks even though we had riu wrist bands on. Lack of food choices was our #1 disappointment.

The property was beautiful! Everything was well groomed and extremely clean. The beach was steps away with an awesome pool and swim-up bar on the way.
