We just returned from a week at the Riu Palace Macao. Check in was swift and rooms were ready well before we thought they would be as we arrived at 10 am.

We're in our early-mid 60's and vacation at AI's 2 or 3 times each year. This is our first stay since the Macao's renovation and conversion to adults only. We did stay at the Palace Punta Cana soon after it opened and, although very beautiful, found it a bit large for our liking. This trip we walked through the new...

I am going to try and address all areas! I have been to Punta Cana 3 times now, and my boyfriend has been 4. This is our first time at an adults only, you don't notice how worth it it is until you experience it! Our first day of the trip was very stressful due to cancelled and delayed flights,...

We stayed here the first two weeks of March and I can say that this is the best Riu hotel we have stayed in. We cannot fault the food, drinks and the staff were all great. We tried all the alternative restaurants except the Japanese but only because my partner does not eat fish. We found the Fusion restaurant in...
