Beautiful hotel however too European for my tastes; would prefer the Caribbean atmosphere instead of old Europe. The beach is wonderful; beautiful white sugar sand for miles of walking; not good for snorkeling but great for body surfing in the waves.
Didn't get to see any shows as the times are geared to the Europeans schedule (starting at 10PM or later) Piano music before dinner was very nice; it would be great to dance in the atrium but no dancing was scheduled. Schedules for various activities are listed on a board outside the main restaurant but no indication as to where they're held (except for beach things).
Food at the Steak House,reservations only, was terrible; better to stay at the International Restaurant for the buffets; assigned tables for evening meals works well.
Don't leave anything on the beach!We left 2 prs of sandals on our chair,took a beachwalk, sandals disappeared.
Caribbean night on Thursday night is loud,loud,loud; don't expect to sleep until after 12. Don't understand why they have it.Would not recommend this property for families w/children.

We didnt have running water for about 36 hours. One of the restaurants burned down while we were there, and it was on fire for about 3 hours before anyone came with a hose. All 4 of us got food poisoning. The ocean was full of rocks and the rooms were dirty. The resort layout was nice but I think because it is old, the management is not keeping up with what needs to be done to keep it running.

Overall, will never return.

Just returned from the riu palace. We will never go back. Food sucked, water was not the smooth carribean that we know and love, service was less than par, alot of fat european guys in little speedos, had to stand in a line to make reservations for dinner ( a long line at that) only certain times for seating at dinner I felft like we were on a cruise, we had to wash our clothes three times to get the terrible musty smell out of them just from the room, and the best thing of all FOOD POISONING!!!!!!
