Great place to stay

I love this place. Everything is fairly close so your not walking forever, their are 3 pools and a baby pool so plenty of chairs. food is always good at the buffet, I wish they would cater to the midwesterners. Meat and potatoes with some gravy is what I'm looking for. we love the fresh fruit daily. The beachs are some of the best in Punta cana. We do all inclusive with apple vacation we always find a decent deal. FYI We hate the main colors of the hotel purple and pink dont seem to feel Caribbean.

Tremendous holidays

I went the second time to this lovely resort. The staff is always there to help you, funny and genuine people. In spring time the Young americans habe there spring Break there- so if you don’t want to see and hear - it is quite noisy- then avoid March The restaurants are excellent and the main buffet is so big and various it’s almost impossible to try everything. There are some tours I recommend, first take a domestic flight to Samana- the island where the Icecream spot was filmed( it’s not true, but the island is perfect) then a tour to Saona beach and swim and see sea stars and more and and and Even the Riu Palace Punta Cana is very nice and more quiet, enjoy your time there!

Interesting to say the least

The hotel is old and outdated. The rooms are definitely in need of a renovation as half of the things (if not all) are rusting. Stains were found on the bed as well. The service is not good. We asked for towels and it took 3 calls to the front desk to receive them. We also complained several times about ants in the room and the front desk was rude and unaccommodating. Workers are rude and even “cat call” me and my friends. It made me feel uncomfortable wearing something even slightly revealing. I found bugs in my food several times. Although I am used to finer dining, the food is terrible. The specialty restaurants are not special at all. The beach on the other hand is really nice; however, a lot lounge chairs are broken and uncomfortable. At times it’s hard to relax on the beach as vendors harass you to buy their items. I will most definitely not be returning

Still here as I write the review and don’t want to leave in the morning. Had a great time. The pool was great the beach was beautiful. Our room was super clean and nice,two complaints our room was over the morning Buffet so they set up early and you hear everything at 6am!! and occasionally not enough hot water. The food was good. The Japanese was our favorite the steak house wasn’t very good but we did get there super late our food was way over cooked. We did an excursion through AM star. Side by side 4x4 had a great time. The staff throughout the resort were awesome! Tipped a pool guy and he had all 14 of our chairs waiting every morning so no rush to get to the pool. Would definitely come back!

Great hotel

Stayed in September 2018. Riu Bavaro was remodeled and they did a good job. It’s not the Riu Palace but it was a great place. Food and drinks are awesome. Beach is great. Entertainment was fabulous. Had a really great time!
