    Wonderful Staff and Service

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riu Palace Macao. The only complaint we had was there are no gluten free options, and very little to eat if you are vegan. Gluten free bread on the buffet would go a long way, and having more vegan options including tempeh, tofu and beyond meat.

    My check-in at Riu Macao was absolutely chaotic not because of the hotel but because the third party app did not do what they were supposed to do. My family and I spent about four hours trying to straighten this mess out. I must give credit where credit is due, the front desk agent Reme and the hotel manager (forgot his name) did all that they could do to remedy this situation, for that I was thankful. Once we finally got things squared away, I must say that the place was beautiful. The staff were exceptional and I would like to give a shout out the staff that went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional, they are: Yescon Pedro Reme Manger on duty when I arrived Jashandra Roosevelt Victor at the Elite Club beach bar...Thanks for always checking in on me when I was in the swim out pool. Although, the check-in was crazy, my family and I enjoyed the Riu Macao and everyone was so nice and accomodating.

    Back to Macao

    This is probably our 6th time back to the Macao, but after the renovations we were able to get a swim up Elite suite. This is definitely our choice from now on! After the renovations, everything we liked about the Macao is now even better. The only thing that I found to be not as good as before, is that the buffet is much smaller and the food choices seem to be more limited than before. My favorite pasta station whereby you had a choice of pastas and sauces that the chef would prepare on demand, is now gone.

    Excellent experience

    This was our first time in the Dominican and at this resort. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a break away from the daily grind to enjoy good food, drinks, beautiful beaches and excellent customer service!
