I've been to the Riu Palace Macao multiple times and truly love it. It has a pretty quiet, laid back atmosphere so don't expect a big party scene. The swim up bar has definitely gotten a bit louder than when it first opened with the renovations that took place several years ago but it's not out of control. It tends to rock from about 3:00 until 5:00 then dies down quite a bit. The weather was almost too good. Sun was always out with very few clouds at all. This was the first time I really took advantage of the large palm grove. Headed there just about every day when the sun got too intense. It is really peaceful and a great place to catch a nap. Check in, check out and overall service were excellent. I love that they added an espresso bar/snack shop where you can get your caffeine fix, grab a pastry, fruit salad or finger sandwich pretty much all day. No complaints at all. Great place to chill out with friends. We were a group of nine friends on this particular trip and everyone had a wonderful time. Not many places can pull that off but the Macao certainly did.
