I am trying to find out if this hotel is at least a 4 star. Travellers reviews are all over the map - from Excellent to Horrible... please help!
Well, it depends on what your standards are. If you are looking for a very basic All Inclusive, then Riu Palace is your place! However, it is nothing super fancy. The staff is very friendly, the grounds are beautiful, the beach is steps away, and the property is very clean. The food is mediocre, at best. It seems to be the same food day in & day out. Also, the alcohol is definitely not top shelf. That being said, it was a very good value for the week I was there!
We've been to the Riu Palace twice and both times we were very happy. Nice place, decent food, good service. We like it, you can walk to town on the beach stopping by all the establishments on the way.
