2/10 Poor

We arrived to Riu and we were told that the property had no rooms available for us even though we had booked and prepaid for our Ocean View Suite 5 months in advance. The hotel sent us to a sister hotel about an hour away and put us in a standard room that was near the back of the hotel with a view of the parking area. They eventually brought us back to the original hotel that we booked and put us in the correct room but not after having ruined our vacation. We managed to enjoy the few days left that we had. Kind of hard to enjoy your vacation when you can settle down into your room and unpack your stuff. Both Riu and Expedia barely wanted to help out and only after spending 4 hours on the phone with Riu and Expedia customer service did they finally give us a small credit that wouldn’t even make up for one days worth of vacation. Not the greatest customer service on either end.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is very secluded and mellow. Perfect location in Bloody Bay with calm waves and plenty of space. I never felt like the beach was crowded or the hotel itself. When we arrived, we were told that they were overbooked and we had to be transferred to their other resort for the night. While this was super frustrating (and the other property is definitely not what we were hoping for), the hotel staff quickly remedied the situation when we came back the next day. The reception desk and management worked with us to resolve the inconvenience in a way that made the most sense for our trip. Ullian is the best!! Additionally, we were gifted a fruit plate and champagne in our room after we arrived back at Riu Palace. The amenities are outstanding and the staff are so attentive. Despite the mishap at the start of our trip, we certainly will come back to Riu Palace.

4/10 Fair

Horrible place!!!
The only things that were enjoyable about this resort were the beach, water and room. The food/restaurants were horrible! The “steak” (I’m not even sure it was beef was the texture of shoe leather and the Japanese restaurant served disgusting tuna - the meal smelled like rotten fish! From the beach, we watched a local run past us and hide behind a tree - we saw the hotel security and pointed to where the local was hiding and then proceeded to watch and hear the security guy tell the local to stay put - the police officers then came around the corner looking for the guy and the security guy did not call the police over - instead he told the local which way to run to get away! The local guy ran away and then came back 10 minutes later and stole someone’s bag and then ran off! There are other incidents that I witnessed that were horribly wrong with this resort - I will never recommend this resort to anyone! The food was disgusting and it was not safe!

We’ve never vacationed at an all inclusive resort. We will definitely do it again!

6/10 Good

We really enjoyed our stay and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. However, our room routinely was not cleaned, didn’t have towels, was replenished with beverages, etc. The room is not where we spend much of our time, but it was a hassle to track down help for things like that on a regular basis.

Great beach location, awesome staff and the entertainment each night was phenomenal.

8/10 Very good

Riu Palace is a fantastic resort in all respects but one: it is impossible to take a decent shower in your room at any time of the day. The water pressure is that of a garden watering can, and the water is either too hot or too cold—never the right temperature. The plumber who came to fix it could not do anything about it and pretended that everything worked as it should, but that we obviously did not know how to use a shower. And when a person who is supposed to fix a problem starts blaming you for causing it, you know that he knows that the problem cannot be fixed. The resort is a paradise in which you cannot take a shower.

The location in the Bay is great. Too much interruption on the beach by merchants takes away from the experience.
