          My boyfriend and I have just booked a Junior Suite Deluxe and were wondering if anyone else has stayed in one. Is it really any better than the Superior room and worth the price we paid?

          Closer to the beach but there is construction near building 3. Try to get a room in the building near the side of the pool bar.

          You can use the facilities of the club hotels but not the Riu Palace Bavsro or Punta Cana. You can also use the water park.

          Hi, have booked the Riu Palace Macao for 2 weeks in August, was wondering if anyone knew about the access you are given to other hotels in the Riu Resort, is it restricted to entertainment Lunch & snacks but not dinner? Also having read some of the reviews I'm a little worried we may be a bit 'young' ( we are both in our mid forties !!) and whilst not party animals we would like to see a lively atmosphere especially in the evenings Any tips or info anyone can give would be great....Thanks
