My partner and I stayed at the Riu Palace for two weeks. The only fault I could point out would be some ants that showed up in our bathroom . When I complained to the staff they sent someone up with a can of spray to dispatch the little pests and all was good again.
The sleep quality would have been excellent except for a couple of nights when US college students on spring break moved into the next room and partied loudly. Not exactly the fault of the hotel! I will have to remember to avoid that week in the future.
We did experience trouble getting into the a-la-carte restaurants as others said we would. I told management about this, don't know that they will make any changes. We didn't want to get up at 6:30 AM to sit in line till 8:00 AM that badly, only did that once. The food in the buffet restaurant was excellent anyway so we ate there. Always had great selection, one night there was lobster, another roast duck, and much more to suit the taste of pretty much anyone except those who just must find something to bit_h about.
I would return there in an instant and would certainly recommend it to a friend.
