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.

Aaaaasasssssaaaaaaaasaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw

Be carefully with tours operator always lie about the excursions. Daily is the same food The worst is the night show. I thing they acting for free. Previos years ago, they have a real Merengue band there, not any more. Is awful. All the rest is ok. Thank you

Resort was well kept, staff was friendly and always helpful. There was lots of activities and most of all food was excellent.

I absolutely loved this resort!!!! Ingrid, Anthony at the front desk was extremely helpful and friendly!!! I'll be back soon!!!

I enjoyed this place . We will come back here !! good place

Service was above average but thought many areas of the property were just average. On site entertainment group was very good.

Food was a bit lackluster but overall experience was great.

The RIU palace was a horrendous disappointment. Disgruntled staff everywhere. I got dropped off a distance away on day one had to carry my bags all the way in with no lobby service in sight. amenities advertised all lies, changed from room 3 times and the last room still leaking from ceiling, paint chipping off room walls, sick from food several times, night club drinks aren't free you have to pay, snack bar next to club you have to pay, pool party is nowhere near the hotel, white party at a different hotel. The only one bathroom for pool area and its located inside a restaurant "disgusting". This hotel chain is a total false advertisement. To advertise as a world wide hotel I rate this a huge ZERO!!! never again for what I paid. There's not enough money in this world to pay me to stay here ever again. "THE RIU IS A REAL BUST"
