My family of five spent nine days in December at the Riu Palace. The staff is so very helpful. My daughter has celiac disease and the chef Randy bent over backwards to make sure that she had lots of safe gluten free options.

My boyfriend and I went with another couple and we realized we made the best choice! We had browsed the internet for quite some time trying to decide which hotel was best for us. We decided to go with the all inclusive and that's where the RIU became our best bet. The hotel is VERY clean, the staff is literally...

We joined 4 couples on this trip and were not involved in the planning, but were originally scheduled to stay at the RIU Santa Fe but they oversold our stay so we were "upgraded" to the Palace. Upon arrival, the property is very stunning. Beautiful common areas, beautiful pool with stunning view of "El Arco" rocks. Once we got into...
