First let me start by saying the Punta Cana airport can use alittle etiquette lesson. The band that plays there literally kicks a basket at you as your walking through for you to put a tip in. I dont mind giving a tip when a tip is deserved..but dont kick your basket at me after a long sleepless flight.
Riu palace was not a disaapointment..from the grandeur entrance as you pull up to the suite jacquzzi we had..Very spacious room with decent mattresses and robes where very much appreciated.Wrap around balcony that included two great views. Ask for an end suite!
No bugs, great weather, great service other then could use a few more beach bartenders, excellent couples massage.
Bars could use more international selection as they used mostly cheaper liquors. Wine defineatley needs upgrading, but i read the reviews before I went so really wasn't disappointed too much.
We went over Easter and resort was crowded with kids. Should have known better but will apply knowledge for next vacation.
Beach was breathtaking...was nice to have access to other Riu resorts as well.
Company...well cant say enough positive about my travel partner..think i'm gonna keep him!
