This resort met and exceeded our expectations! From the welcome beverage to getting to know the staff...everything was done with excellence. REN made the best morning coffee (went out of his way to ensure I had soy milk because I don't drink milk) and Horace, Micheal, Marice and Osborne took great care of our needs at the restaurants and buffet daily. We got to know Renaldo and Gregory who made sure our cups never stayed empty...the food was amazing and authentic and everyone in the spa, excursions and activities stand made our stay heavenly. Everyone in the resort from the cleaning staff to room service and bar tenders made us feel at home. If that wasn't enough we had access to breakfast, lunch, activities and shows at the sister resorts (Reggae & MoBay) AMAZING EXPERIENCE!! THANK YOU RIU PALACE

I visited with a group of friends with all different bookings. They got us in our rooms super quick; and all the rooms were in the same area/hall. Covid tests were easy and right on time. Food was excellent at the buffet and Japanese restaurant (Zen). Waitstaff were super friendly and attentive especially Jemar and Stone at the buffet and Monique, Paul, and Dan at the pool. Lady T and Lloyd “Spark In the dark” were so fun and tried to get everyone having a good time! Hotel was very clean, small but not tiny, we had an excellent time and would highly recommend! Love, the Scoobydoopapa gang from Iowa!

I’ve been to quite a few all inclusive but this was hands down the best stay I have ever had. The staff truly made our group feel welcome. They went out of their way to make sure than we had a great time. They learned our names, where we were from, why we were here and greeted us every time they saw us. Jemar and Stone always had a table ready for us when we showed up for meals. Stone made the most beautiful table setup on my birthday for dinner. Jemar & Stone both made sure to let everyone know it was my birthday. The entertainment staff (Spark and Lady T) had us out there doing all sorts of activities we never would have engaged in. Paul and Monique made sure we always had water with our drinks to keep us hydrated. The food was delicious (the jerk chicken, the pasta bar - so great!). Our rooms were always clean and restocked. The front desk staff called to check in on us. Michaela with Amstar also made sure we had no questions- got us setup with our return COVID testing on site (back in a few hours) and transportation to the airport. I have not a bad thing to say overall minus the wait time for one meal at Krystal. I truly hope I mentioned everyone who made us feel so welcome. We appreciate you letting us be “JAmericans” for a few days!

Stayed at the Riu palace to celebrate a friends birthday and it exceeded all of our expectations. Our server Stone made a special table for our friend the night of her birthday (without even asking). Jamar always had a table waiting at breakfast and lunch to accommodate our large group. He also had the best jokes!! It was a highlight of our day to see both him and Stone! Monique and Paul - best bartenders, hands down. If you visit- they will take the absolute best care of you!!! The entertainment staff - Lloyd (“sparky”), Lady T, DJ 40, A man of thunder, and the rest of the crew worked all day and night to make sure their guests were having the best time. (Noon water aerobics was probably one of the best times). The games and creativity of their staff was tremendous and you could tell they put their heart and soul into their job. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing trip. You will feel like royalty at the palace thanks to the amazing staff. 10/10! My friends and I will be back for sure.
