Absolutely amazing!

I've vacationed here two years in a row and absolutely loved it! The first year there were 20+ of us and the 2nd year only four of us, which was equally fun both times. The resort is all-inclusive 24 hours, the grounds are beautiful, the staff was very friendly and the food was great. We did not experience any issues either year and would definitely consider vacationing there again in the near future. We also did a few excursions both years (dune buggies, horseback riding, booze cruise, scuba diving) that were all organized and paid for once we checked into the resort. The nightly shows were very entertaining each night and themed dinners required a reservation. There is also a large buffet styled restaurant that we dined in occasionally. Gentlemen please bring long pants (jeans are ok) for a few of the themed dinners. Lots of shopping on the grounds and at the sister resorts next door that you will also have access to. Free Wi-Fi also. More>

Completely Disappointed!

There is no way this is a 5 star resort. We stayed 4 days at this resort and the best moments of the trip was when we left the resort. The food was sub par, plentiful with zero taste. The room was horrible, there was terrible smell the entire time, the furniture was dirty I didn't want to sit on it. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting, with mold and mildew throughout the shower. The cleaning crew did not clean on a daily basis but only made up the bed. There were ants throughout the room. The common areas were not maintained well and appeared unclean. I could not wait to check out. Do not stay here if you can avoid it. More>

Amazing holiday in Paradise!

We recently come back from a 2 week holiday from Riu Palace Punta Cana and I have to say it was the best holiday me and partner have ever been on! The people there are so friendly, locals and staff! The room was clean all the time with fresh towels and twice a day someone would come and restock the mini bar and fridge! The resort is absolutely beautiful. I had my birthday there and they went beyond to make sure I had the best day ever! We will definitely be returning for another 2 weeks in Paradise, it was absolutely amazing! Thank you RIU! More>

It was ok

No real complaints, more like comments. It's an older , in need of updates kind of resort. The safe is a block of steel lock with key they give you to put into the safe itself. You have an actual key for the room. That's 2 keys you have to carry around at all times. Room was adequate, clean, bed was horribly hard. Our jacuzzi never worked and the last day, neither did the tub, we had shower only. No real water pressure. Food was hit and miss. Brazilian steak house was very good! Buffet was always good. The steakhouse was good for the lobster, but the steak was tough. Service there was so slow, we left without dessert. Pools were great and the beach was gorgeous. The grounds were very well manicured. No bugs! The maids were left a couple of bucks each day with candy , yet they took my husbands favorite pen he had on the night stand :( Service was always good and friendly, except for the slow service at the steakhouse. Loved the sports bar for bailey's in our coffee before breakfast! It was a great value for the price. I would probably stay here again, but it's not a ritzy place by any means. I would highly recommend the Saona Island excursion. It was an all day party with a beautiful beach! More>

would go back anytime fabulous
