Hey Akron Travellers, I am going in 16 days! I do have a couple questions.

1. Is there a pool bar? And what is the best bar to chill at all day?

2. How is the Disco?

3. Are there safes in the rooms?

4. Any stuff you learned, that you had wished you had know before you left.

5. Do you have any pictures?

1. Is there a pool bar? And what is the best bar to chill at all day?

There is a pool bar but oddly it's not stocked. Easier to get out of the bar and walk up to the front of it. Which bar to hang at depends on whether you prefer the pool or the beach. Close bar at all 3 pools and even a nice one on the beach.

2. How is the Disco?

Disco is the beach bar. Old fuddy here....we never really made it to the disco.

3. Are there safes in the rooms?

Room safes are there but you have to rent the key. We didn't bother. We just hid our cash.

4. Any stuff you learned, that you had wished you had know before you left.

I wrote a review that summarizes our experience.

5. Do you have any pictures?

Posted a couple pics on the review.

I'm sure you'll have fun. It's impossible to not have a blast in such a beautiful place.

Hi, Neighbor (I'm from Canton)!

I am new to the forum and this is my 1st trip to Punta Cana. I don't have questions concerning the IFA Village Bavaro as we are staying at the Riu Palace but any advice/tips/info on Punta Cana in general would be appreciated. Thanks!

You'll love the RIU Palace and Punta Cana! We've done several RIU resorts and think they're the best.

Thank you for easing my mind. We leave in 2 wks and I was getting a bit nervous after reading all the negative reviews about the Riu's in P.C.

Are there any places to shop outside of the resort complex?

You won't want to leave the resort in PC. It's the third world.

Hey JenOhio when are you going to the Palace? We are leaving for the Riu Bambu which is the neighbor of the Palace on April 29th. Our friends are going to be staying at the Palace. You are allowed to go back and forth between all of the hotels.
