Depending on what you can afford, I would stay at teh Riu Palace...if it's out of your price range, i would recommend the bambu...i was just there in november 2005...it was gorgeous.

Yes, all 5 (soon to be 6) RIUs are on the same property, next to each other. The little paved path along the beach connects them all. Go to www.riu.com and look for a map of Punta Cana resorts, it will give you an idea.

Stayed at the Riu Taino in January, 2004...toured the other hotels in the resort's complex. I would choose the Bambu. The Palace is a little too pricey.

The new RIU Palace Punta Cana might have good deals for the next few months, it certainly is a beautiful property, and if you can get a deal, I'd jump on it.

Keep checking


they have even better prices than booking with the hotel directly.

We just got an amazing deal for May, and can't wait to go!!!

We stayed at the Palace Macao in December and it was a serious disappointment. We had legitamate issues and management could not have cared less. Personally I would avoid all Rius after the attitude we encountered but at the very least set your sights low (Melao) and maybe you will be bumped up. (unlike us being bumped down without compensation or concern)

We had a great time with Barcelo Bavaro last time in Punta Cana but that was a while ago.

I stayed at the Taino in Nov. I really liked it. No problems, right on the beach and the community night club was a blast.All the Riu guests use this club. So much fun.

The new Riu Palace is now offering $99/night/person. I got 9 nights out of Cinti, Ohio for $3K.
