Our Stay began at the Riu Palace Punta Cana on Dec.9 - 16 , 2012. This hotel is showing its age, the room was musty with stale cigarette smoke along with a stench we could not identify as we entered our room .The air conditioning was set at 24 degrees and would not lower I found it to be shut off at 4am each morning causing me to wake up hot. I called but the maintenance man just cranked it to 10 degrees C which did nothing.since it would not cool more than 24. Overall I liked the staff, most were friendly if you were friendly toward them. would I come back to this hotel the answer is no. The beach is gorgeous the weather is amazing but as far as staying here again, I would only rate as a 3.5 star. Oh and the bed was as hard as a rock , I need to take advil to get through the night because the mattress was brutal.The food was in a word - MEH.
