          Hi, what would you like to know about this accommodation? I'll staying at the RIU Palace the end of July, I'll be brining my kids/grandkids. My grandkids are 18 months and 7 years old, they both love milk, do they have milk at the RIU? I've seen posts where they say no milk.... I know this probably sounds like a weird question. Thank You for the "good" review, I was getting nervous after reading some of the bad ones.
