Great vacation

We have just returned from a week of family vacation at the Riu palace Punta Cana, we had a great time there, initially I want to say that we have been to 4 other Rui in the past and this was our first time to this one, like a lot of the other reviews mentioned yes it is a replica of the Riviera Maya palace, but this one is a lot less in the quality of the service that they offer, even so we were happy with the quality and the value of the stay, everybody was getting out of their way to help you, check in was quick and easy front disk staff was helpful, we had no issues with the rooms, same style like any other Riu we have been to, they are comfortable for a small family, air condition worked very well, room was cleaned everyday, had no issues with any of the room amenities, pool servers were awesome, they work hard on making your vacation a nice one, they go around the pool taking your order and serving you, they deserve to tip them, they make any cocktail that you asked for the way you want it, the only issue with the pool actually for us was the smoking was allowed and the entertainment around the pool was almost nothing except playing some music in the afternoon, beach was by far the best beach ever been to, white sand, clean water, and shaded seating area that is awesome, if you like the beach like us you can spend your most of the day there and enjoy that. Food was good, you will always find something that you like, the buffet had a great selection of variety of food, yes it gets to be somewhat repetitive but selection was always good, we tried all the specialty restaurant except the Japanese, there was always a nice touch of setting service there and we liked the the steak house the best. Night entertainment not bad, sports bar was open 24 hours. I would recommend this hotel for its value and beaches and we would come back, I would also try another Riu hotel for their level and quality of service More>

This Resort is Definitely One to Visit -- again and again.

The resort was as beautiful as it looks in the pictures on-line. The view when we pulled up..!!!! Breathtaking. While it is probably in need of an update, I'd go back there tomorrow! We visited in April, just after the normal spring break. Absolutely beautiful beach!! plenty of chairs,palm trees, drink service and no sand fleas that we've had at other resorts. The entertainment staff is top notch. Plenty to do ---- or not do. The food was very good for an all inclusive resort. We discovered the restaurant by the beach and the 2nd floor seating area is breath taking! I couldn't eat anywhere else after that. We did upgrade our room slightly and overlooked the promenade area -- halfway between beach and main building which was perfect - not to far from either area but far enough it was quiet. Can't wait to go back. More>

This is my second time to DR (I stayed at a different resort last time), and this time I went to celebrate a friend's birthday. She chose this resort based off the reputation she's heard about other Rui's. We stayed here in April 2016 for 3 nights. The staff at the lobby were friendly and great! The beach and pool area are nice. I am not a picky eater at all, and I did not care for the food here. It was average at best. The drinks are okay. The rooms were decent. The beds are pushed together to make a king bed. I did not mind much because I did not plan to be in the room much anyway. However, I did not like that the room left my clothes damp...even my passport that was left in the safe was damp from all the moisture and humidity of the room. The wifi connection was horrible! It did not work in most areas. The resort is dated and in need of some upgrades. I still had a good time with my friends, though. Overall, the resort is okay, but I would not stay here again. More>

Stayed here in July 2016. Lobby is very nice. Now the rooms another story. Long walk to rooms, no scooters no trams, just your legs. Room was very dated. It has a shower that was in the tub but you had to step up 2 ft to get in tub. Room smelled on the musty side. We had no working jetted tub, lack of towels. Had to keep,calling for towels for 2 people, no wash cloths. Food was average. Pretty much same food each night. Specialty resturant were full so couldn't get a reservation. No real entertainment, just a co u please people singing each night. Long walk to pool and to the spa and shopping area. If you have bad knees, bad back or just can't walk long distances this place is not for you. Staff friendly, drinks ok, pool is nice and so is beach. Ok resort but I won't go back. Not senior friendly enough for me. I need a separate walk in shower and access to a scooter. More>
