    Riu Palace is fairly isolated from the other hotels and away from cities. It is well-maintained and close to the beach, and the various restaurants have varied and interesting menus. The rooms are large and cool and for the most part pretty...

    The resort was beautiful . Accommodations were great. Lots to do. Great hideaway restaurant on the property, " The Monkey Bar". All food was good. Great entertainment. I would definitely visit this resort again.

    I liked everything in general! Staff were super friendly and helpful. The food was really good and I loved that we had always an option to pick during the day. My son loved the splash park and the pool.
