My husband and I have gone to the Riu Palace every two years for a great relaxing vacation. We are impressed with how well the grounds are kept up and the entire hotel which holds over 200 rooms is immaculately cleaned. The maids are mopping steps from beach sand throughout the day. It is great to see new and familiar faces in Don Manuel Restaurant in which we go for breakfast and dinner. We ate at the speciality restaurants and were only impressed with the quality of service and food at the Krystal Restaurant. We plan in the future to only eat there and take all our meals at Don Manuel which has good service and you can eat on your time. A great new upgrade to the hotel is free wi-fi in the rooms. Just ask at the front desk for your user id and password. We also found that the beach waiters were more attentive than any of our 3 experiences. It might have been due to the fact that we were there during survey week. The entertainment team were high energy and spent many hours working the crowd throughout the day and evening to join and to participate in activities. We enjoyed the late morning dance lessons on the beach. Although there are new hotels that have been added to the coast, the beach that is outside the hotel is the best. It's deep from the Caribbean sea, shady or sunny and great for swimming or sunning. We will continue to cater this jewel of the Caribbean Sea.
