The best thing about this hotel is proximity of the beautiful beach from rooms, restaurant and lobby and on top of this great service and spotless on going cleaning with attention to details such as immaculate linen service at all times. Rooms are spacious and well designed and all junior suites. wide beach front and is shallow with three u shaped buildings on each side of the breezy lobby More>

The Riu Palace Tropical Bay is a good value for the money. The beach is well maintained and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The drinks included in the price are top shelf liquors. The food in the restaurants and buffets was excellent. If you go home hungry there's something wrong with you! Pointers... 1. There are no elevators so if you need a group level room be sure to request when you book and reconfirm at check in. 2. Drinks are included but tips are greatly appreciated by the staff. So bring plenty of $1and $5 US to use for tips. 3. Make sure you turn your beach towels in and return towel cards when you check out. Otherwise they will charge you 20.00 per missing towel card. 4. Beach vendors can be a little aggressive. If you don't want to be bothered tell them " I'm walking not shopping" and they generally will leave you alone. However don't be surprised how many will still ask if you want to buy Marijuana. Again if that's not your thing just say "I don't smoke" and they will leave you alone. 5. If you want to eat in one of the restaurants you need to make a reservation at the desk in the main lobby. Reservations are generally made at least a day in advance and you will have two choices, either 6:30 or 8:30 PM. 6. If you eat in the restaurants swim suits are not allowed. Men need long pants and a shirt with sleeves. Women generally wear dresses although we saw some in pants and nice tops. 7. Room service is included in the price so feel free to use as desired. Tips are not required but always appreciated. 8. There's a wall liquor dispenser in every room. It includes scotch, vodka, rum and whiskey. Mixer and water are in the mini fridge and are restocked daily. 9. The air conditioning only works when your deck door is closed. So if you want to get fresh air be advised that the air won't run. 10. Always request a room away from the street side. Traffic noise might be an issue there. More>

beautiful beach, wonderful food

this resort is a little older but kept in wonderful condition.was here 2yrs. ago in early may. we had a beach front room that had wonderful sunsets. the food at the buffets was excellent and the alacart restraunt's were very good also.the pool is very small but why go to the pool when you have a beach that is flat and walkable and water is so clear you can walk to shoulder deep water and still see your feet.there was a huge ;6/7 ft across/ stingray that cleared out the ocean 2 different days, but it was amazing to see.you can walk down the beach to the other RIU resort. they have larger pool and a little bit rowdier pool scene.this place is wonderful, but there is a Sandals resort being built next door to the right which might crowd the bay .still in all it's a place to remember and possibly return.

Location is paradise and beach is excellent for swimming and quality of sand. The hotel is built with wide beach front and is shallow with three u shaped buildings on each side of the breezy lobby. Minimal walking no matter where you are. very tranquill setting. Elegant staff that are so efficient. Food is very good. Hotel is generally very clean everywhere. Rooms are spacious and well designed and all junior suites except for few suites. Some negatives that we saw was: distance from airport is approximately 1,5 hours but truly a very pleasant drive with sea on one side and mountains on the other so I really do not consider this a negative, hint prepare a light snack or water bottle for the road; beds are two twins that they can make into a king sized bed not the most comfortable king size bed but sheets are changed several times in a week which is really good. By the trees on the beach there are ants but I suppose this is nature. In short this is at least a four and half star hotel and certainly we would like to return. The best thing about this hotel is proximity of the beautiful beach from rooms, restaurant and lobby and on top of this great service and spotless on going cleaning with attention to details such as immaculate linen service at all times.
