Beautiful hotel, the entrance is just beautiful, the attention of the employees A+. The rooms just amazing, everything inside the room FREE every soda, alcohol, beers, etc., buttt the privatecy! Thanks God I was with my cousin female because when u shower who ever is in the room will z u ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. The bathtub didn't get it, practically divides the room, but then again, where is the privatecy!. Alotttt of walking, make sure 2 ask 4 a room in the first floor, because I was in the 3rd floor n Jesus what a marathon 2 get 2 my room. The restaurants ufff very very good, the pools good music, entertainment good, the beach was not good, the water was rough, but it was october. No complaints on mu part. Will visit again if I have to.

Rui Palace Bavaro in Punta Cana, A trip from hell.

A family of four at hotel to celebrate holiday and birthday started with a bribe from the reception personnel. It had to be cash. On 3rd evening one negative comment towards Japoneese Ghisha restaurant ended in severe food intoxication. Gifts and tips were not enough. The rest of holiday spend in bed or the bathroom for one member, the others were sick in session even on our return trip.

Black Mold and harvest gold bedspreads

Run away do not stay here. This place is a filthy mess, rooms are a mess and dated. Mold all over ceiling fans And dripping out of ventilation system. Dark lobby dated and old...Harvest gold pulled bedspread. Coffee table scratched and dated. Bath tub was filthy. We called our travel agent and had them move us..

3 rd time at Riu Palace Bavaro

What can I say third time. We have decided that we will continue to return here every fall until we donโ€™t. I know that sentence doesnโ€™t make sense but from the second we entered the lobby we felt at home. Staff are friendly, grounds are clean room is the way we remembered it. Some staff recognized us namely Rafael, a couple others throughout the week. Food was good VIP pool clean and as always enough lounge chairs for everybody. Night time shows are repetitive not only from the last couple of years but from other resorts as well. My biggest complaint about the night time show is they have a violinist on for two nights. I can barely handle him for one session! Remember to tip and to say thank you these people work hard to make you stay as enjoyable as possible.

Friendly Hotel Staff, good standard but annoying entertainment staff.

I have been to Rui hotels before and absolutely loved them. This holiday actually was a company incentive and for that I am very grateful. The hotel and staff are great, everyone has a smile and a greeting for you. There are a selection of restaurants and plenty of choice on the food front. In the hotel lobby area there is a cafe that serves tea/coffee cakes etc. The rooms are a lovely size with a spa bath, large shower twin sinks & WC. Hairdryer and shaving mirrors are included. We had 2 double beds, sofa table & chairs flat screen TV with American channels. Air con\heating is standard and safety deposit boxes and WiFi are free. There is also an iron and ironing board in your room. We we're fortunate to have a sea view (room3073) but on the downside we we're directly above the main stage and the entertainment was awful and ridiculously loud every night. Part of the pleasure of my holiday is the entertainment, but on this holiday I did everything I could to escape the noise of the team. The ents leader is too over the top and is constantly shouting down a microphone. Even during karaoke, they can't give it a rest joining in when people are doing a good job themselves, the team coming on stage in stupid costumes, (with no relevance) almost like they need constant attention. I was a full time entertainer for 10 years and believe me they need a boot up their rear! But it don't end there! You can't escape even around the pool, they play music so loud and its really bad music, nothing is relaxing or soothing, its like a bad 18-30's experience. To end on some positives, the hotel staff work hard, nothing is too much trouble, you don't even have to leave your sunbed to get a drink. 4* for the hotel and staff and location. 2* for the entertainment team.
