Overall a good stay
First of all, the staff and customer service was fantastic! The room and hotel was a bit dated (which seems to be common among Jamaican Hotels) but was definitely the nicest room in the hotel. There was no elevator so be prepared to take lots of stairs throughout your stay, especially if you’re on the second or third floor. The beach was clean and beautiful as were the pools. There isn’t much difference between the adult and kids pool as the pools are side by side and the kids just come over to the adults pool and the drinking age is 18. The buffet everyday was good. The all inclusive restaurants are ok but we enjoyed food more outside of the resort. The Krystal restaurant was the best one there. Overall a good stay.

Our 6th year @ RIU Palace
The RIU Palace is very good with food, room, service, beach and watersports - all inclusive. All very well done. Service is great if you are tipping or not. The night shows are good - sometime corny but the steel drums etc. fantastic. The pool games are good - did a foam pool party that was a blast (even for me @ 57 years old). Great stay, proven quality.

Enjoyed our stay as our stays before
Really nice!... turned out wonderful as expected!. This was out 5th time staying at this location and enjoyed it as the previous times. Only hiccup we had this time around we couldn’t get any water in our room one of the nights. Other than that it was splendid
