I have been to 12 all-inclusive hotels and this was by far my fav! I am a huge fan of the Riu hotel to begin with but this was the best I have seen! I really enjoyed the Riu Palace and would go back in a heart beat. It was that resort that you just didn’t want to leave. I am a very picky eater and had no problem finding something to eat every meal! Our room was stunning, and very clean and tidy! The staff became our close friends by the end of the week and are counting the days until we can return! Jose Miguel is the best entertainer Riu has seen and will be a close friend of ours for a long time to come! For only being open 5 weeks when we were there the service was amazing! And I didn’t notice any work being done on the hotel! It is clearly going to take some time for the pants to grow but I actually enjoyed it because finding a good car by the pool was easy! And we didn’t make it to the pool before noon once!
