Beautiful resort, terrible food

The beach is gorgeous, the grounds are beautiful and well kept, the service was great, the rooms are nice (no smell in our room!), the drinks are free flowing, but the food is TERRIBLE. Tons of choices but all bland and just gross. The steakhouse was the only restaurant where the food was good but of course the reservations fill up days in advance, which means you will probably only get to eat there once. Book ALL your reservations the first day! They also have no idea about food allergies so if you have an allergy, DO NOT go here! And as if the terrible food wasn't enough, my husband and I have both spent the last two days in the bathroom as a result. We did not eat anything other than resort food so it was definitely from there! Beautiful resort but would not go back! More>

I loved this hotel. It was very nice and the hotel staff was excellent!!! Starlin took really good care of us. We stayed for 6 nights celebrating my fiancé Bornday and we had a blast!! For his Bornday they decorated the suite, fresh fruit, bottle of champagne, bubble bath with flowers and other stuff... I'll forever stay with RIU Hotels anytime. Going to Ocho Rios, Jamaica on July 16 and can't wait>>>> More>

Best trip ever!

My friend and I stayed at this resort from June 14th-June 21st 2016. The grounds of the resort are absolutely breathtaking and very well maintained. You really do feel like you're in a palace. However, due to the fact that it's very elegant and classy, it lacks fun and entertainment. It was primarily families and couples at this resort. My friend and I spent most of our time at the Riu Bambu (the resort beside the Palace) as it had several activities, music and entertainment all throughout the day. The atmosphere is much more relaxed at the Bambu and the crowd is a good mix of families, couples and singles. The food at the Palace was phenomenal. I was hesitant going to this resort due to some negative reviews of the food, but I had absolutely no problems. The main buffet has a wide variety of options and is very tasty. The beach buffet is equally as good. We tried out 4 restaurants during out stay: Brazilian, Steakhouse, Japanese and Italian. The Brazilian and Italian were TO DIE FOR!! We did an all day trip to Scape Park and did 3 excursions: Ziplining, riding dune buggies and a cruise that included snorkelling. We booked it with a worker in the main lobby of the Palace. The trip was great and very well organized. We also went to Coco Bongo one night and it was AMAZING! Great show, music, drinks and vibe. We also went to the Pacha disco (the club for all the Riu resorts). There's a shuttle bus that takes you to and from. But just a forewarning that drinks aren't included at this club. The staff at both the Palace and the Bambu are extremely hardworking, happy and super friendly. They all definitely made our stay much more enjoyable! The rooms are nice as well. The furniture and style isn't exactly modern but it was still nice nonetheless. The wifi isn't the strongest but it's free so that's a plus! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Palace and we really appreciated the fact that we could go between the Palace and Bambu...we got the best of both worlds!! Thanks for the trip of a lifetime, we'll definitely be back! More>

I was skeptical about this place because of the reviews . However this hotel met my expectations . I traveled with young children and did not have to worry a lot . First the grounds are spectacular and the beach the best so far . I could not get enough of it !. The waters are beautiful and safe , lots of beach chairs and drink service was awesome . Lots of food choices at the Don Manuel restaurant . One complaint is that it can get boring, sometimes the food was recycled from hence we made reservations to the French and Brazilian restaurants .(Recommended ) . The rooms could use updating but the Junior Suit was sufficient for a family of 4. It was comfortable and that is all i cared about . Its a very family friendly resort . More>

I really enjoyed my stay I was there from June10th-14th. The food was great, and the entertainment was very interesting, always something going on. We did an excursion that took us around the town , loved it. The rooms need a little updating but other than that I really cannot complain. More>
