          How far is it to the Riu Palace Bavaro? We have friends staying there with their kids and we want to stay adult-only but go there when we please. Is it a walk or a shuttle ride? Thanks!

          Unless policies have recently changed, the macao is for macao guests only and bavaro is for bavaro only. Both can use the Bambu or Niabao but not for dinner. There is a VIP ao section at the bavaro.
