Great value vacation! We stayed for 5 days and the staff was amazing, the beach was so beautiful, food was good with buffet and reservation dinner options, rooms were a bit dated but clean. Would definitely go back again!

We spent a week at the Macao in May 2016. It is located on a beautiful part of Punta Cana, with lovely dense palm trees on the beach. Rooms are clean and satisfactory. Service was sometime good, sometimes indifferent - may have been because they are closing for renovations. Food was quite good - a la cartes all good with... More

The hotel is part of a RIU complex with a number of hotels in a row. This is the adults only hotel. Food was good, drinks ok for all inclusive carribbean hotel. The room was clean although small. The bed was a little hard and thin. I had a large hexagonal balcony but didn't use this. Unfortunately this meant other... More

Stayed for a week in July. Rooms: Fine! I thought it was roomy and beds were fine. The only thing I hated was the bathroom has these glass blocks (not see through) as a divider but if you have someone who pees a lot at night it can wake you up when they flick on the lights. Otherwise no complaints!... More
