Nice Getaway on the Beach
Posted Feb 13, 2017
My sister and I recently returned from a week stay at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay. We had a wonderful time at the resort! Everyone was so helpful and friendly - always with a smile! The resort is right on the beach and located on a beautiful Bay with the Scuba Caribe Dive shop right on site, with windsurfing, paddle boards and Hobie cats, as well as cruises you can book. We took the half day cruise that included snorkeling and stops at Rick's Café and Margaritaville. Big Bird (Mike) and the crew made this a cruise to remember!! The nightly entertainment is fun, but not exceptional and the buffet is standard, but the staff is very eager to please and very good at remembering what you like. Our every need was taken care of every morning with flowers on the table and bloody marys waiting thanks to our waiter, Damon. The specialty restaurants are decent, especially Krystal, which was exceptional. And highly recommended are "G Water" a specialty of Kenny at the pool bar. The room was clean, if a bit dated. Overall though, the experience was fabulous and I would highly recommend it.
