Did not hate did not love
The resort itself was good, beaches were good so was pool, Dinner was good, but breakfast and lunch were fair at best. Bartenders and servers were great. The rooms were not my favorite we were two friend sharing a room with double beds ( the beds were not comfortable and pillows were awful ) the worst part was that the shower is glass doors visible from all parts of room great for a couple not so much for friends.

Punta Cana Fun!
This was our 6th RIU Palace stay and we were not disappointed. The RIU Palace Macao hotel and grounds are in immaculate condition, the staff was extremely friendly, and the food was great!

Very good 8.0
The Riu is a good value for the money. The entertainment at night was fine - not first class but certainly enjoyable. The staff at the hotel does everything they can to make your stay pleasant. I would say the food was "okay" - not the best but certainly edible and plenty of it. We like the buffet the best of all the restaurants. Breakfast was really good however.

Beach Paradise
I love Riu Palace Macao! I've stayed their twice on Girls Trips. I wanted for nothing but a slightly softer bed. Luckily, I spent most my time sleeping on the beach! It is a good size resort where all the necessity locations do not feel too far from each other. The service is excellent with such friendly staff from the check-in to drink servers on the beach. One thing to note for some travelers is that the hotel attracts a primarily 50+ group.
