Friends trip to Punta Cana
Richard G, Smyrna, Tennessee

First time to Riu Palace Punta Cana. Up on arrival we were greeted with smiling faces and a ice cold beverage. Check in was quick. Shout out to Franklin at the front desk for all his help. We booked at suite room and it was very nice. Not out dated , like a lot of reviews said. Still in good shape. We've stayed at a least a half dozen resorts in the Caribbean and this was the nicest room so far. The resort was well maintained and lots of friendly people wanting to make your stay the best it could be. The beach area has lots of palm trees if you want to relax in the shade. If you want sun, then there's plenty of room on the beautiful beach to do that too. The food is like most Caribbean resorts. You can always find something to you liking. The buffet has plenty of choices from breakfast to lunch to dinner. Shout out to Raul for taking care of us weather it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. The steak speciality restaurant is the best. Looking for a place to relax and have a drink were it's cool, go to the main lobby bar and hang out day or night. Thanks again Riu staff and don't believe all the negative reviews you read. If your going to relax and to enjoy the Caribbean atmosphere and keep an open mind that not every thing is perfect. Then you'll enjoy your stay at Riu Palace. Finally note: We've used Vacation Express the past couple of trips and it seems like we always get the rooms no one else wants, until we ask to be moved to rooms we thought we booked to begin with. Also this trip we were 2 hours late leaving Nashville for our trip even after our departure time was changed to 3 hours later, two months before our trip and we were 3.5 hours late on or return trip from Punta Cana. No one from Vacation Express has Ever called or emailed us to apologize for the inconvenience. More>

Nice Vacation.

My husband and I just returned from a 7 night vacation. We had a beautiful suite, the service was great. Everyone there is dedicated to make the stay special for you, very friendly, everyone says hello and are very attentive to your needs from the front desk to the staff at Don Manuel, shout out to Mario and Fransisco thank you for your hospitality. The Entertainment team was great, maybe the music could be played a little better but other than that they were very engaging. Unfortunately I can't remember our pool side waiter who was so great as well, very attentive always used the words "familiga" and "Amiga". The maid Service always put a design in our room out of towels, very sweet. We had a nice time. More>

Best place ever

My family and I have being at this resort 2 times already and love it so much that we are planning to go back to celebrate our 40th anniversary there. The staff and entertainment and the food are simply amazing. The beach is within the resort and the experience of being treated like royalty is just amazing. I would recommend this place 100%. Love it. More>

When we pulled up to the Riu Palace, we were so impressed with its beauty. The stately building was inviting and attractive. The pool is immense with water chairs for relaxing. The pool bar was fun and the bartenders were friendly. The food was not bad- the buffet got to repeat itself, but the other restaurants were enjoyable. We stayed in the junior suite and it was perfect with our teenage children in the connecting room. Be careful- the mini fridge is stocked with alcohol -if you have teenagers! I cannot wait to return to this paradise again in the future. More>

Just returned from another visit, to palace puntacana. The hotel is now ready for an update, but apart from that a great fortnight, food very good, entertainent was good, and the staff first class. With special thanks to Daisy on the lower bar and Yajani on the top bar, the pool bar staff were very good never had to wait for a drink.people were complaining about the food in the alacarte restaraunts but we had alacarte 12 times in 14 nights and not one bad meal we were told that the hotel is closeing next september for refurb its now ready. On my last visit i was not impressed with the reception staff but on this visit very good ,the room was clean but she never turned up till 4pm this is a bit late to clean a room .One couple had money take from the room but the rep said it should be locked in the safe on arrival you get a letter which says use your safe leave nothing lying about they will take it We will return to this hotel but after the refurb More>
