My husband and I and another couple stayed in the Riu complex in January, 2004. We stayed at the Taino, but visited all of the other hotels in the complex. I must say that the Bambu was our favorite. The Bambu has an attractive pool and nicer bars. We found the food to be average (edible).

The Riu attracts many European visitors. While we enjoyed the diversity, it was difficult to communicate with other guests.

We are leaving for Punta Cana in 15 days...staying at Secrets Excellence...can't wait. From the reviews that I have read and the personal conversations that I have had with people that have stayed at Secrets, Secrets is a much nicer resort than the Riu.

Secrets is more expensive, but if you can "swing" the extra $...book Secrets.

Well in my opinion the RIU Palace Macao is a much nicer resort than Secrets ---especially when it comes to the beach. But really it is different strokes for different folks---part of me feels that the appeal to Secrets would be the adults only status!! Just my two cents worth
