As “a luxe option in Punta Cana,” the all-inclusive Riu Palace Bávaro resides on a long, white-sand beach dotted with palm trees (Oyster). Staying at the Riu Palace means you also have access to the neighboring sister hotels in the large Riu resort complex, giving guests an array of entertainment options.
Rooms are contemporary, done in white with accents of pink and purple giving them a “funky modern” look (Frommer’s). All guest rooms come equipped with free Wi-Fi, a liquor dispenser and a balcony or terrace. Bathrooms are open and incorporated into the room, allowing for a more spacious and sexy vibe. Adults-only villas are also available for rent
The hotel offers four pools, including one for villa guests and one for children, tennis courts, a spa and a gym. Water sports like kayaking, snorkeling and sailing are all included in the price. The five onsite restaurants range from casual buffets to an upscale sushi spot.
After dinner, guests can experience nightly entertainment such as live music and performances, or take advantage of free admission to the dance club and casino. Kids clubs and family-friendly entertainment keep the younger visitors busy. The hotel has a strict no “spring breakers” policy, ensuring it never gets overly rowdy or loud.
