Just booked 4 nights at RIU Palace Jamaica for November. It was a bit on a whim, but doing brief research I saw the hotel had just opened this past year and had great reviews. Recently, me and my friends have been stuck on Punta Cana. Can anyone comment on what to experience at RIU Palace in comparison to and AO AI in Punta Cana, namely The Level at Melia Caribe Tropical.
Is the beach calm in front of RIU Palace?
Also, being first time in Jamaica, is the USD widely accepted for gratuity?
Any comments on the resort would be appreciated!
