Just returned from a week at the RIU Palace
We initially had booked a partial view, junior suite room, for 3 adults for the week of August 4th. Upon arriving, we were thrilled to be given an upgrade to a full ocean view. Little did we know that we were facing the wall of the RIU for adults next door and had a birds eye view of the pool/ocean. The room was also much smaller than the junior suites we had previously stayed in. Long story short, a rude manager told us the hotel was completely booked and maybe we could change rooms the next day. Very long story short,... we got a different room the next day with a great view!! Beach continues to be a huge problem ... we got up at 5:15 every morning to get out hut .. slept on the beach till 7 when the beach guys unlocked the beach chairs. Lots of arguments with people moving other people's things. The hotel claims no responsibility as it's a public beach ... other hotels along the strip seem to have worked out a system for hut rentals. RIU needs to step up to this huge problem and make plans to help the customers who stay at their hotel. Otherwise, vacation was great with lots of good food, drinks, and visits to town to try other restaurants.
AWESOME!! words cannot explain this place. I celebrated my birthday and Anniversary , I had the time of my life. This is strictly Paradise. The food was great as well as the staff. I will be returning again in the Future. This is HEAVEN ON EARTH!!
RUI Hotel Adults only
The rooms are dark outdated furniture and the plumbing in the bathroom is terrible. The toilet overflowed 2 times, the shower water took forever to go down and the sink also. The hallway rugs are old and when they vacuum it smells like the vacuum bags are full. The casino is old looking and boring the staff was not friendly in the casino. The night club has no ambiance, too dark may I suggest white furniture and revamping the bar and dance floor. The independent restaurant food was not good. The buffets were great ! The staff was lovely, the shows were okay. The beach is wonderful and clean. Needs better night entertainment and nightlife. Hope you will consider my ideas. Nillie 256
I’ve heard that you need to get up early to secure a palapa. Let me tell you it’s true. People start at 5:15 am using flashlights to get one. I was almost hurt this morning at 6:30 am by a woman with bleached blonde 80s hairdo carrying a float and towels dangling from her arms RUNNING down the hallway to get one! Beware of crazy people with floats
Beautiful resort! Beach was absolutely breathtaking. Bar staff was great! The pool and entertainment staff were great as well. It was really nice to sit at the bars and watch the nightly entertainment! I took my family which included my wife and two kids ages 18 and 15. Definitely a nice resort probably more for older adults or families with older kids. The only complaint would be that the food was a bit lacking. Wish there was more variety and more tasty. Other than that it was a good resort which made a great memory for my family!
