Our family of four, two adults and two teenagers, stay at the Riu Palace for four days. Here are my observations:
Rooms---spacious, clean, modern, quiet(room3011), balcony huge, nice ceiling fan, faced other Riu
Food--plentiful, well refrigerated/covered at buffet, speciality was worth waiting in morning line to reserve
Pool--plenty of shades, plenty of chairs, great servers, stay away from swim up bar as it smells like urine by afternoon.
Staff--attentive and very helpful
Highlight--witnessing a sea turtle laying eggs on our beach!
