My spouse Donna & I attended this resort from Feb10-16, 2017 along with another couple. We are 50-year-old Caucasians. We flew out of Hamilton, Ontario via Sunwing; a 4-hour flight on a plane where the seats are packed in so tight that my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me. I’ve never seen such cramped seating on...

I have stayed in many Riu properties and this is right up with the best of them. Firstly i am a very fussy eater but had no trouble finding something to eat. Food was always fresh and plenty of choice my favourite was the steakhouse but the Krystal was also excellent. Our room was cleaned daily and our mini bar...

Just got back from 2 weeks at the Riu Palace Macao and only have great things to say about our visit. We've never returned to the same resort twice but when the RPM came up as a possible destination this year we didn't hesitate to break our own rule based on how much we enjoyed the resort last year. The...

This hotel is brilliant. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we had an amazing time. Staff were friendly throughout the hotel, from the maids, to the bar staff but especially the waiters in both the restaurants and the a la carte restaurants. Throughout the week they remembered us and would get our drinks when they saw...

I just came back from Riu Palace Macao yesterday and all I have to say is amazing!! I went with my girlfriend and her parents and we all thought this resort was incredible. We spent most of our mornings at the beach and we never had problems finding a good spot. The resort was very quiet and relaxing. The pools...

My partner and I travelled to this wonderful resort for March Break. The resort is adult only, small but not too small. Service from the front desk to the animation team are friendly and want to please you. The food is excellent. We split our time between the beach and pool and loved both. This is an ideal place to...

This was our second year in a row at Riu Palace Macao. The service, food and cleanliness are very good. The people are really the best- kind, courteous, and dedicated to doing their job in the best possible way. Pableo, who attended the pool area each day, kept it spotless and was always available to assist. Mateo greeted us for...

The staff at the RIU Macao did not disappoint!! Everything was amazing! The only thing I would say was that the food was labeled as well as I would have hoped. My husband & I are extremely allergic to shellfish, and most time it's was obvious what did and did not contain shellfish sometimes there was a grey area. Rooms...

What can I say?! Our 2 week holiday in the Dominican Republic has been absolute bliss! The Macao is well finished with 3 pools (including pool bar) and not far at all from the lovely white sandy beach. The hotel is still adults only and we haven't seen any children around the resort at all. The food at the buffet...
