    Birthday Getaway

    Stayed at the Riu Palace for 5 nights. The hotel views are undeniably stunning. The staff was so helpful and alway cleaning. Although this was an older hotel, the cleanliness was top tier and much appreciated. The food was good at the buffets and burgers around the pool. Unfortunately we didn't care for the food at the sit-down restaurants and drinks were less than impressive, but definitely enjoyed my share of mimosas. All in all I would definitely return and just eat out for dinner. At this price point the hotel and location can't be beat.

    Fantastic getaway

    I've never gone anywhere like this before. I'm not generally a fan of expensive vacations. But wow. This was quite an experience. My wife and I totally enjoyed ourselves and this is something we will both remember for a long time. Even looking back at the pictures a week later gives me a big warm fuzzy.

    Honeymoon at the Palace

    My husband and I just returned from the Riu Palace on our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time! Every single staff member we ran into was so friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and they are always cleaning it to keep it looking pristine. The views from the resort are hard to beat! We had a swim out room which we honestly did not use that much since we enjoyed the large pools but loved being on the ground floor close to everything. The breakfast and lunch buffet as well as poolside food stand were all great. Our only complaint was that we didn’t love the sit down restaurants as much. The food wasn’t the best but if we had to choose a favorite we liked Krystal and the Japanese restaurant the most. They also don’t have really top shelf liquor, you have to ask for the better stuff or they will use the cheap stuff. We walked to the Sante Fe and Baja and hung out there for a day and those are definitely more of a party scene and the Palace more relaxing. Overall, we had a great time. I would consider returning in the future.

    Wonderful vacation

    Just returned from another wonderful stay at the RIU Palace. Service was outstanding and we will return in the future. Helpful wait staff at meals that always found us a perfect table. Housekeeping put extra touches in the room. Bar service was friendly, and the staff from many visits in the past that remembered us. Many thanks to all for providing and enhancing a wonderful stay.
