RIU Palace
2nd time staying at RIU Palace. Once again everything was perfect. Amazing buffet. Only complaint is that they should be able to accommodate more at specialty restaurants.

5 Star Resort-Need to Fix Chaise Lounge problem
Everything EXCEPT the chaise lounge experience was wonderful> As a vacationer looking to sleep a little longer in the morning it was BRUTAL to have to wake up at 6am everyday just to get two chaise lounges either by the pool or beach!! I observed rows of lounges with towels-books and even a walking cane straddled across them to be"saved" with no one using them for hours if at all. The security guards walked around constantly and certainly noticed the same situation but never said anything to those people-...I suggest the same solution Norwegian Cruise lines uses. You're warned in advance that you cannot reserve lounge chairs- their pool people walk around and put a stick on dot to a lounge chair with towels and no one usingit. After an hour if no one is in the chair- the towel-books or whatever has been laid down to reserve the chairs are removed to the security booth to be retrieved by the guest..Its awkward but that guest doesnt repeat the chair reserve again... Its not fair to spend thousands of dollars and not be able to enjoy the amenities of the resort

4/10 Fair

THE PROPERTY WAS JUST OK. VERY OUT OF DATE WITH BEING ALL THE THINGS WE HAVE IN 2023. NO USB PLUGS FOR YOUR PHONE AND DEVICES, TVS OUT OF DATE. ALSO RESTAURAUNTS FILL UP VERY QUICK AND THEY DONT ALLOW YOU TO EAT AT THE OTHER RIU EXCEPT BUFFET. ALSO HAD A BAD LEAK IN THE CEILING OF MY ROOM (THAT I WALKED IN TO), ROOM WAS FULL OF WATER ON FLOOR, WHICH IS UNCONTROLABLE BUT TOOK MAITENCE GUY 45 MIN TO SHOW UP AND RIU NEVER SENT ANYONE TO CLEAN UP, CHECK ON LEAK, AND WE HAD TO CLEAN UP THE WATER OURSELVES. VERY NON PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS. NEVER HAD THESE ISSUES AT ANY OTHER RIU BEFORE.
