The pools were amazing. Perfect depth & loved the built in lounge chairs. Plenty of space throughout the property so it didn't feel crowded. Great food, lots of options to choose from. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I would absolutely stay again!

Traveled with partner
Resort has no night life or any entertainment thereafter. Food wasn’t ideal as the restaurant menu food option was very poor. Only option for drinks was tequila so of you are a fan of tequila then this is the place for you. Staff was ok. Room service would come clean the room and remove all the towels and was cloths and failed to replace with new ones, so everyday I had to call for new washcloths. However, when washcloths were brought they were dirty. I would not revisit this resort.

I have to admit, after reading the reviews here before our trip, I was worried that we made a mistake. From the bad food, to the bad drinks, then the rowdy behavior, etc. I'm glad we didn't cancel! We had a blast! The view from our room was AWESOME! We had the larger suite and loved it! Also, we had the bottles of liquor in our room! We spoke to others in the pool and none of them had the bottles! Regarding the food, most of it was really good, with the exception of the Italian restaurant. Also, the buffet we thought was really good! We also enjoyed the Indian, we went there twice. Pepe's by the pool is the bomb! We went into town 3 days to have tacos, and I have to admit, Pepe's was better! The pool is amazing, met many great people! The drinks we have to admit, are watered down. But just order a double, problem solved! When ordering tequila drinks, ask for Don Julio. Special props to Aldo and his wife Itzya in the buffet! They greeted us every time they saw us and took great care of us! Sit in their section when you go! Also, Perla by the pool is amazing! Introduce yourself to her and she will take care of you! Always came by and took care of us by the pool. We tipped them all during the week and on the last day. So if you have doubts, don't, just go!

This was a scam!!! We checked into a room that was 88 degrees F, after running the AC for an hour it had only gotten hotter inside. It was miserable. We we requested someone come and fix the AC multiple times that evening and finally at 1030pm someone showed up to fix it. By the next morning, the room was still 86 degrees and we checked out of the hotel. Had to fill out a “statement” return the wrist bands and were told we would get a refund for the 4 nights we had pre paid for on Expedia. Never got the refund. Put in a 2 requests with Expedia and both times got a response that “ Unfortunately, we were unable to contact the property and will need to abide by the terms and conditions of the booking which states refunds are not allowed.”…. Expedia never contacted the resort!! Why did I fill out a statement and have to return wristbands so I couldn’t use the amenities after I checked out if I wasn’t getting a refund?? Again, this is robbery. And Expedia has been no help- I can’t even get a hold of the exact hotel we stayed and the Riu palace resorts will not issue me a refund because I booked through Expedia. Do not stay here!!!

Just the fact that the entire staff looked like they enjoyed serving you and liked their jobs , very eager to help with anything. The air conditioning diffinitly needs improvement , you could not get ready without sweating, also the musty moisture smell in the room.
