RIU Palace Punta Cana All Inclusive, Punta Cana
Looks like a 4-star, feels like a 2-star
I wanted to love this place but couldn't. The place looked great - very grand and beautiful. The pool waa nicer and the grounds well manicured, but that's the extent of it. The bed was terribly uncomfortable and the bedding was old and cheap. Even the towels were low quality and scratchy. The food was rather poor - a couple of decent things here and there but a lot was awful. The coffee at breakfast was disgusting. They would serve me a half empty pot put they pulled from an empty table - several times. The beach was beautiful but the lounge chairs were falling apart. The staff was not at all friendly or nice or helpful - even at check-in they were not pleasent. The hotel was rather old and felt it - giant keys for the doors and the safe would not even fit a laptop. Maybe the newer Riu properties are better.. who knows, but i would not recommend this one, and wouldn't consider another one unless it had really high ratings.

My Weekend at the Riu Palace Punta Cana
The stay was just ok... Hotel is not very modern. Service at the front desk was very hit or miss ...depending on who you spoke with. I don't think I would stay there again.

Loud leaf blower to wake you up.
Woken by a loud gas-powered leaf blower roaring in the hallway by the maintenance staff. Not a pleasant experience.
