4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

travelled 1 week ago with husband to celebrate our 65th birthdays and Wedding anniversary. We booked a taxi from the airport so that we did not have to book in with lots of people. Check in was quick and very simple. We were asked to sit in the lounge and a drink was served to us, then we were taken... More

I have visited resorts in the Caribbean in the past but this by far is the absolute best. Most important to me is the food and entertainment that most resorts fall short of. The food was wonderful and the entertainment was GREAT! For the value this is a great place. My husband and I will return!

I just got back from 4 nights at the RIU Palace Macao which is part of a four or five resort compound. The hotel is beautiful, stark white and majestic looking. The rooms were very nice with balconies and quite large bathrooms. The pool was huge and more or less adjoined the beach. There are multiple restaurants but we couldn't... More

The rooms were immaculate and bar always stocked, beds turned down at night staff was unbelievably fabulous! If I had to come up with one complaint it would be that they only had Pepsi no coke! So if you actually... More

We celebrated our Ruby Wedding anniversary at this gorgeous hotel. It was fab to be adults only. The food was really great and I had plenty to choose from (Im veggie). We were disappointed with the speciality restaurants who didn't cater for me but the buffet one was more than adequate each night. We hated the swim up bar, just... More

Not the best Riu we have stayed in but still a fab place. The buffet restaurant did not disappoint with ample choices for every one. We've had much better al carte restaurants at Riu hotels but the Italian was nice. The bars and drinks were fantastic all with branded spirits all day and superb cocktails. Breakfast and lunch were always... More
