Only one small thing we had a noisy fridge in our room which my husband unplugged each night! Apart from that it was perfect. The staff cannot do enough and are polite, friendly and fun.

I just got back from the Riu Palace Macao Jan 10-17. It was absolutely fabulous! It was our first time in the DR, and we had a pleasant experience. Everything from our check-in, our stay, the food, staff, room, drinks, cleanliness, and final departure was great. It was our honeymoon, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay....
