We stayed at the Palace Macao for 14 nights from 10 August. It's adults only! It was a great stay but got a bit quiet as the hotel closes for a refurb on 29 August. Hope it stays the same when it reopens in November. On arrival to the resort we received a very warm welcome that continued for the... More

First, let me say my wife and I have been to the Caribbean 9 times now (Jamaica DR, and Cayman). The grounds at RIU Macao (stayed in late July 16) are very nice and the food for the most part is good. The breakfast buffet is average for an all-inclusive, meaning it was good. A Lot of selections. The Japanese... More

We upgraded to a suite for an additional $300 and it was well worth it. Domingo was our favorite bartender very attentive and wanted to come home with us. Food was good we loved the... More

Fantastic steak house and unlimited visits to the other restaurants. Kayaks and other non motorised water sports included. Fantastic entertainment round the pool and at... More

The RIU Palace Macao is an adult only facility in Punta Cana, DR. We had a Jacuzzi Suite on the 3rd floor facing the pool and ocean. The view is breathtaking once you have arrived. The all inclusive is great since you do not have to worry about carrying cash around the property with you. (However, take about $30-$40 in... More

We spent a wonderful week here a couple of years ago in February 2014 and will definitely return. The management was especially helpful in getting us the suite we wanted. Had a lovely terrace. Beautiful beach, nice pool, and our view was wonderful.
