Great beach, amazing food, great place to celebrate our friends 20th wedding anniversary
Rowena B, LaSalle, Canada

This hotel is very clean, grounds are well kept and the food was very good, especially the buffet and tainos steakhouse... My only complaint was I booked my trip online and paid for a poolview but did not get a poolview. After checking in I went to front desk to complain they offered me another room in same building with the exact same view.... I am still waiting for my refund for the extra amount I paid for poolview. So just be weary if you do decide to pick a pool view it is not guaranteed and you will still be charged for it.

Good Vacation but annoyingly unorganized!

I had such a great vacation and good thing I didn't allow this resort to really ruin it. For starters, I had a nice welcome from the staff but then everything was all over the place. I was assigned a room quickly and that room was horrible. It smelled like paint/mildew, the bathroom sink was clogged and the phone didn't work. I waited over 45minutes for my luggage which really was annoying. I went over to my sister's junior suit to complain about the room and service. I was told I had to stay there for that night. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM ROOM 1140. I was switched the next morning to a way better room and everything was lovely, except the safe wouldn't lock so it was out of use for me. The staff here aren't as pleasant as most other resorts I visited but they weren't rude just look unhappy so I said Good morning and kept on with my day.

Honeymoon/Vacation

After looking for a place to get away for our honeymoon/vacation we booked the Riu Palace Bavaro. We looked at many resorts and read the reviews of them all before going with our travel agents recommendations. Some of the bad reviews that were posted made us worry about going. We were there for the week of May 7th and the weather, rooms, food, and staff were great. Yes the rooms need some work and in some spots we did see green on the buildings but they were in "shady' spots that don't get much direct sunshine. Overall our rooms was cleaned and restocked every day and was enjoyable except for the super soft pillows. I have never seen any resort being kept up on the cleaning of the property as they were. Somebody was always moping, wiping or cleaning the hallways and walkways.

Took the family for a one week vacation and I must say we were amazed on how beautiful and well kept the place was. The service and food were beyond amazing. We have never experienced anything like that before. The staff looks forward to getting what you need. Always smiling. The buffet restaurant had more choices then what you can actually eat. The a la carte steak house was amazing. We went three times. We would go again with no hesitation.

Pleasant Property but not Palace

The Junior Suites are pleasant, you can see they're dated, however, double vanity sink, Jacuzzi, Walk in Shower, separate Bathroom, two double beds, terrace with Garden View. NOT a PALACE ... there were Cucaracha's in the room, the double beds were on wheels, making it uncomfortable to sleep and stay still, one suite smelled so bad with mold and paint (to hide the smell), there were other rooms with broken safe's, broken room door entries. NOT A PALACE... The staff denied me a bath robe, why? a five (5) day stay and there were times the towels weren't replenished. There's a large selection of seafood to eat throughout the resort but i had some nasty white sauce pasta, which taste terrible, like flour and dough, i can't imagine who made that disgusting dish. This is a pleasant resort, quiet and could be relaxing but not a palace and they're treatment of guest falls short of a palace.
