Riu Palace Macao

This hotel is adults only, absolutely spotless clean, good choice of food & restaurants. The staff are friendly & always happy to please. The only down side for me is smoking or vaping anywhere, except in restaurants. The entertainment team work so very hard everyday with always something to do if you wish. The beach is clean. The sea is warm when I visited in October 2019. If you want a relaxing time this is the place to go, as there is nothing to do or see outside the hotel other than pay for excursions.

Exceptional Resort

The room, the Food and the service were all exceptional. A beautiful resort with several hotels on the one property. There were tennis courts, pools and water activities to please all visitors. This was an Adults Only resort and it was our best stay ever in DR. Tremendous variety of food and most were chef prepared quality with exceptionally flavor and very well presented foods. Always there were fresh fruits, a variety of vegetables and meats and fish.

Going Back!

My husband I visited last year - a very long time that we could do an all -inclusive adults only and this resort did not disappoint. We have one son and always picked a family all inclusive so this was a treat for us! We had a great corner view suite that we want again... I hope management is reading and can get us that same room as we just booked again today! What we loved was - the resort is so close to the beach - you have the luxury of being in any of the pools but always a short walk to the beach and ocean! We do love to hang at the pool and take long beach walks - the pools were always clean and the servers happy to serve you anytime. You could join in the activities at the pool or just chill and relax - we never felt any pressure - just enjoy what you want to do.

The food - we were very impressed... we went to the steakhouse 2 nights - because we had a great steak dinner! The Italian was so good also - really had a good red sauce that we enjoyed. The servers everywhere - from breakfast to lunch - alway smiling and remember you if you smile - its always the thing I say to my husband.... Why don't people smile and say thank you --- the servers appreciate is so much as we do - we are on vacation people - be in a good mood - when I see the disgruntled faces - all I think is that is they live all the time! You are on vacation - SMILE and remember how lucky you are to be on VACATION!

We loved the shows - the bars - the people - everything and decided to go back again and booked today - I should of posted last year when we got back..

Riu Palace Macao - Please give us the fab room we had last year - I will email you so we can have a dream vacation again :)

Thank you!
