Spent 7 nights from the 28 of Dec till the 4th of Jan, Had an amazing time!! Staff was very friendly, Alonso at the pool bar is an absolute gem, always made my day to see him!! Food was good, room was always clean, pool was descent to get a lounger, sometimes hard to Get a shaded one, but I'm not an early riser. Shows were really good, first trip I've ever wanted to see the nightly one. Only complaint I have is no cheeseburger on the room service menu haha. All in all a great trip, love the Riu ... Read more

I stayed at the Hotel Riu Palace on a family vacation with my husband and two young adult children. All around, the hotel is beautiful. The location was amazing, our rooms were lovely (we stayed in two ocean-view Junior Suites), and the staff was incredibly friendly. The only drawback that we found was that arranging to eat at the sit-down restaurants was a little bit convoluted. Other reviews have described a process of waiting in line before the first scheduled seating time, and either being... Read more

Visited Costa Rica for a leisure trip and can not wait to go back. This is mostly because of the outstanding experience we had at the RIU Palace. These people know how to make their guests comfortable and happy. The staff is incredibly friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make the guest satisfied.The front desk, room service, wait staff and entertainment team and even the gardeners all have one thing in common which is true interest in making your visit as comfortable and enjoyable as po...

This was our 3 visit to Costa Rica. We have previously stayed at the Rui Guanacaste This Christmas we spend a week at the Rui Palace and a week at the Rui Guanacaste only because families we meet last year were staying at the palace. We tried to book both weeks at the palace but they could only accommodate us for one week due to it being Christmas. Rui Palace - now having stayed at both resorts here is my though. Rui Palace has a few things we preferred. Like... Way more room at the pool be... Read more

Amazing place! The staff was awesome, food incredible and weather fantastic. The Accommodations were great (I stayed in a Junior suite facing the pool)- Rooms here are a great size, modern... jacuzzi tubs in room. The nightly shows were very well put together (The Michael Jackson tribute show was fabulous-- very talented performers!). Dined at the Japanese restaurant one night, food was very well prepared and delicious. I have only great things to say about this resort... looking forward to... Read more

Let me just start off with after reading all of these horrible reviews, it's easy to tell who is just a miserable person and who doesn't do any research before they travel. People expect way to much when they go to certain countries. People will just complain about everything and anything... but it's impossible to please everyone. Anyways, I just got back from spending a week here with 3 of my friends. We had an amazing time! It was my first time leaving the country so I was extremely nervous ab... Read more

I visited this hotel in September with a group of 3 friends. The experience at check in was chaotic, there was a table with envolopes with your name and room number. The day we arrived was raining but the hotel grounds are amazing. Because of where you are expect lots of bugs everywhere. One night we had a lizard visit us in the room. The room was open, very open, no privacy apart from the toilet. The beds were not overly comfortable either. Also there's no lights on the balcony which leaves li... Read more

Food was what you would expect from an all inclusive but always something to chose from to suit all Pools were brilliant with lots of Loungers and shade. Beach wasn't the white sand... Read more

Everything was fine for us (family of 4 - with 17 and 9 year old). Staff good, food plenty and pretty good as well. Rooms clean. No complaints really, it was interesting how there was quite a large age spread of the guests. We did use the guys off the beach for Quad bike and horse excursions, and we had no problems at all.
