We are enjoying our 4th stay at this resort and can't say enough good things about it! This one included a milestone (my 60th birthday) and the RPM did not disappoint. Lovely accommodations, great food, a beautiful beach and you will not get better service anywhere else. We'll be back for #5 and beyond!

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Riu Palace Macao

Fantastic adults only resort

Everything you could want from fresh varied food, entertainment and hot weather.

What really makes this resort stand out is the hard working, friendly attentive staff.
Tony and his team went out of their way serving us breakfast and dinner
Always had a table for us ready with our preferred drinks
Virgellio at the pool bar and evenings always made an effort to talk to us and make us laugh
Finally Yilson from the entertainment team was extremely friendly even if we didn’t want to get involved with the activities he would be sure to speak to us.
Roberto at reception was extremely helpful

We visited the riu pool party which was also a lot of fun
We played tennis even though it was too hot.

Beach was beautiful and lots of it and so close.

Swim up pool was fab. We met a lot of friendly guests and staff that really made the stay a lot of fun.

Housekeeping team work extremely hard visiting our room twice a day
Thank you!

All in all a 5star resort that we will definitely be returning too
We had an amazing time and can not wait to go back!

Excellent holiday!

Pros: Great deal and resort was fabulous. Adult only, not overcrowded. Beach went on forever, staff were fun and attentive. Bar service at pool and on beach, activities were fun and plentiful. BINI always had a jokee jokee and infectious laugh. The waiters around the pool were constant and took time to know what you liked.
Food was amazing. Didn't need reservations for any of a la carte venues. The buffet was one of the best! I'm not a buffet person but the resort did an amazing job. So much variety, something for every taste. We liked the buffet over the a la carte and we had our own waiters who were the best. Shout out to Hector and Polanco they went above and beyond. First place I ever noticed so much champagne being served. The entire hotel and grounds were decorated for Christmas. Lights everywhere very festive.
The Italian restaurant Voltare was really delicious. They even had a huge parmegiana cheese wheel which is so delicious. Staff also went above and beyond.
Breakfast was lovely outside on the terrace. Staff again amazing. Always a smile and fist bump and Polanco always had our coffee ready and a memosa for me! Their coffee is the best! Hot hot and then if adding milk it is also hot so the coffee was a pleasure. Also has a swim-up bar.
I think I could go on and on but I will stop! Recommend this resort and we plan to return same time next year to meet up with new friends we met at the resort!

Cons :I forgot my toothbrush and asked if they had any complimentary ones and was told no you have to buy at the market store so I paid $4us for a toothbrush. Not a big deal but I was surprised they didn't have emergency supply.
They are having a crazy seaweed problem. Tons of seaweed is floating on to the beach. The resort was very good at getting rid if it. The resorts further down the beach had way more so we were fortunate. I guess we can blame that on climate change!

Sorry for length of review but there were so many pluses for this resort. I hope you have as much fun a we did.
5 star for sure!

We went in Early December. Rooms were nice and clean, grounds and pool beautiful. No wait at restaurants and food was good. Entire staff so friendly. Special shout out to Gregario in restaurant and Bini at the pool. Shows at night were entertaining and loved being able to walk to Caribbean Street shopping.
