My husband & I typically take at least one trip a year to a tropical destination outside the US. We enjoyed our stay at this Riu property but there were a few minor negatives. Check in was fine, it was only us so there were no warm cloths or tropical drinks but they did bring us each a cold beer... More

My husband and I stayed at the Rui Macao from Feb 26 - March 5. We wanted a very quiet, adults only vacation. No loud music at the pool, no loud disco into the wee hours of the morning, no drunks yelling in the hallways. We got exactly what we were hoping for. So if you are looking for party... More

We stayed with two friends at the Riu Palace Macao from 10th to 24th March 2015 and had a brilliant holiday. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the rooms and all communal parts were spotlessly clean, the selection of food and drinks were great (even had optics in you room to use if you wanted). We stayed in... More

Just returned on Saturday from a week stay at this resort. It was a wonderful trip. My husband and I go on these trips for relaxation and this resort offered just that. When you go on trips like this you can do as much or as little as you like that's for sure. This resort offered to guests the same... More

Just returned two weeks ago from a 5 day stay at the Riu Palace Macao. The property is very clean, and most of the staff went out of their way to make your stay a great one. I would recommend the specialty dining options over the buffets, which got boring pretty quickly! All in all, food was above average. We... More

I came here with my partner and let me start by saying this hotel is lovely, rooms are spacious and the staff are so friendly but it just wasnt for us. it was so boring. There seemed to be no atmosphere in the day and at night, by about 10pm, everything was finished and everyone was off to bed! We... More

Went with a group the first week of February. It was our first time in Punta Cana. Beach area was nice , place kept immaculate, and the rooms were clean and had all the amenities needed. Check in was a breeze since we were with a group. Yes, older crowd but nothing wrong with that. I am sure we were... More

Just back from a week long trip (3/14/15 - 3/21/15) with 80+ friends and I can't say enough about this wonderful resort. We were upgraded to a suite which was beautiful and very clean but so were the standard rooms. From the buffets to the specialty restaurants, everything was delicious and there were so many choices that changed daily. From... More

Friendly hotel, spacious and not too large by comparison to neighbouring Riu hotels. Adults only which suited us. Pool bar busy, and very sociable early evening although not to everyones taste. Entertainment staff good at motivating guests for activities. Food was excellent, large variety of choice. Beach was fabulous but busy. Lovely breeze - waiter service for drinks. Room, -... More
