The good: really friendly staff. the beach and pools. Absolutely beautiful. The palm trees, water and service was terrific. Ample chairs at the pools and on the beach. Terrific variety of food in the dining halls at breakfast, lunch and dinner. The night time entertainment was good and we enjoyed sitting outside at night enjoying a drink and the entertainment. The bad: The rooms were nice but our group had some problems with clogged toilets and sinks and maid service showing up at 11 o’clock at night. Kind of odd. The specialty restaurants couldn’t seat a whole lot of people so there were long waits so we only went to one of them and the food quality was kind of poor so we stuck with the buffets. The liquor quality was poor, they obviously specialize in rum drinks and they had one Dominican beer which were good, but if you want anything a little higher quality it’s not there. In fact they don’t have any bourbon when you asked for bourbon they fill the American bourbon bottles with something different. Like a dark rum. It wasn’t even close to Bourbon and the bartenders admitted it to us. The vendors on the beach are not overly intrusive but if you lay on the beach all day 20 to 30 of these people come by to ask you if you want to pet a monkey or buy cigars or hold a bird or buy sunglasses. It gets a little old. Overall I think we had a good time but we will not go back. At least not to that resort.

We loved this resort, very beautiful. The staff was excellent and the food was great. Only problem was too many kids in the pool bar pool, there are 3 other pools their parents can take them to. The beach is so great for walking, which we love to do. I would highly recommend this resort!

Adults only fun
Reviewed 2 days ago

Wasn't to sure about adults only, if there would be a difference from family oriented hotels, but there was , very relaxing atmosphere, excellent service, plenty to do, top notch entertainment food was great, would highly recommend doing adults only for a few of my next trips

First class resort
Reviewed 2 days ago

I have been to a few all inclusive resorts and I would rate this in my top 5! Rooms clean, spacious. Get a room facing courtyard nice view , quiet. With renovations 3 pools to choose from, and beautiful sandy, clean beach.
Food was terrific( expect to gain some weight, but worth it) buffet was most popular, open breakfast and lunch. Beach restaurant open for lunch.
Recommend for couples and families

Awesome Family Vacation
Reviewed 2 days ago

We just got back from our family vacation in Punta Cana. We enjoyed our stay at the Riu Place. The Riu Palace has spacious rooms and were very clean. The buffets had alot of variety of foods. Our favorite waiters were Paco, Estaban and Pamela. They always had a table saved for us and decorated the tables each meal. They were awesome! The pool areas were very clean as well. The waiters were always asking if we needed anything and very friendly. Our favorite waiter in the pool area was Neury. We really enjoyed the Riufit entertainers by the pool area and also the nighttime entertainment. Scooby Do, Cappuccino and DJ Yeral and the other entertainers (in which we never got their names) did an amazing job of entertainment. I really liked that they had children and adult entertainment. The entertainers had us laughing for much and had alot of awesome games for everyone to join in. The pool areas and the beach area had alot of lounge chairs to use. They always cleaned up the sea weed by the ocean each morning. The food by the pool area was amazing as well. We did go to the steakhouse, the food there was really good. If I could give 10 stars I would, we loved everything about this resort. Everyone was so friendly, always smiling and very polite. This was the best vacation we have ever had! Highly recommend Riu Palace Punta Cana.
