Great hotel excellent staff
This is our second time to this hotel and it never fails to impress us. The staff are helpful and courteous and the animation team are very energetic and make sure you are enjoying yourselves. Pool staff (Pablo, Wilson, Wilton are worth a mention as they are a credit to the hotel). We stayed for two weeks as a group of seven and had four rooms. They made sure we were all on the same floor and close together. Which made things easy for us, especially as we had a single female as part of our group. The alacart restaurants were great and food excellent. The buffet area, food again was great and good selection . The staff again in the buffet could not do enough for us. The facilities at the hotel are good, pools, beach all good. Will be definitely returning again.
3.5 to a 4 star hotel
I am currently on holiday at the riu palace macao and to be honest it is a lovely hotel, the restraunts are outstanding and I would happily reccommend to anyone (the fusion and the italian are our favourites), also the animation team are amazing so friendly and they make the stay here 110 × better! There are only a few areas where I dont think this hotel lives up to "palace" expectations for example the drinks are not good at all we have been to Riu hotels in the past and there has been a massive variety of drinks but here there isnt also the majority of the cocktails are a slushy consistency which isnt always pleasant we have ordered drinks and about 60% of them haven't been the correct ones so we have just gone and got our own (which we dont mind to much), the a/c in the room is not very good when it's so hot outside you want to go into a cold room but the a/c doesn't get very cold (easy fix but annoying when its boiling outside) I dont want anyone to be put off by this review as the hotel is beautiful and very clean, I'm just a little disappointed that as a couple we paid a lot of money to come to a palace and I really dont think it is palace standard. I would not return to this hotel as a couple I would 100% return as part of a group :) Happy holidays x
We enjoyed our stay the hotel was clean and all the staff were friendly you could always find something to eat in the dinning room at all times all the food was fresh.Pool waiters were very good and loved the coffee shop always had nice cakes in there room was clean. Loved the beach it was beautiful.
Beautiful beach and all inclusive
Loved the beach every morning and night! Pool with bar was fun social place every afternoon. Good dining. Felt like everything closed down a little too early at night though. Would like just a little more night life.
Great place but
Loved the hotel. Pool. Grounds. Restaurants. Staff are superb nothing is any trouble. Bars.branded drinks. Food. The small cappuccino coffee pastry bar is lovely along with waitress Entertainment could be better but you can use other Riu hotels close by. Cocktails tried a few they all taste of chemicals vile very sweet. Beer is okay.
