The Riu Palace is staggering - once you enter the main lobby, you are reminded of elegant times. The glittering lamps, art works, marble and stunning pillars that lead your eyes to the double doors and the glimpse of one of the infinity pools and caribbean sea.
Whilst grand and elegant, the Riu still manages to be relaxed and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for staff, who even serve cocktails to you on the beach!
Our room and the whole hotel inside and out, was spotlessly clean and the enormous army of staff are in evidence throughout the day, keeping it that way. Beds are comfortable and well equipped and this is truly an 'all inclusive' hotel.
We must mention the wonderful animation team, who went out of their way to make us welcome and were really entertaining every day! Make sure you take a trip to Senior Frogs (like TGI Fridays on speed) absolutely hilarious. And - Coco Bongo should not be missed!
As big 'foodies' we were not expecting too much, but what a surprise - the breakfast buffet offered more than you can imagine - a lot cooked freshly every morning and we must commend the Mexican, Steak restaurant and the Fusion - which was exceptional.
The smaller infinity pool with the swim up bar was our favourite and top tip are to make use of the tiled sunbeds in the pool - absolute paradise.
To confirm our unreserved reccomendation, we are returning very soon, so look out for us! and boys get the frappucinos iced ready!
