I stayed at the Rui Palace Bavaro for 6 days/5 night, June 27-July 2, 2013. The Resort looked even more beautiful in person as in the picutures prior to traveling there. I traveled with a large group and our Group coordinators were on point. When I checked in, I was pleasantly surprised that the resort gave me a complimentarty VIP upgrade. (Access to the VIP pools, bar and beach areas) which I found to be a nice touch! I did notice they seem to a liite short with service staff.... as I did not have anyone to assist me with my bags to my room.... but as began in the rain one of the gardener saw me struggling and assisted me. The room was as I pictured it! NICE!
My complaints about my room was that as after I inspected my room, all seemed well until I was getting into the shower, I saw cock roach crawling around the shower... I was little annoyed.... but that was the only time I saw one.....
The bed linen was of poor quality, very harsh and beady..... SORRY!!! I'm used to sleeping on high quality sheets...
The pools were well kept...THE BEACH WAS ABSOLUTLY A DREAM....
I ate at the buffets during my stay and food was good. The staff was very friendly, especially YOKASHA at the dining area, she went above and beyond to see we comfortable during out stay. Our group had finale dinner at the Steakhouse and everything was set up and prepared very well done. Oh and my ribeye was just delish.
Pedro was is the BEST BARTENDER EVER!!!! Thank YOU!!!! ... "Bottomless Mamajuana"
I would return and recommend the Riu Palace Bavaro.
Came to the Riu with the streeses of WORK & LIFE and left with a Beautiful tan, No stress, No worries and Some GREAT memories.
