"We are a young 50 yr. old couple, that loves beaches and drinks! We stayed in a Junior Suite, upgrade to VIP...well worth it! Service was fantastic, very friendly staff from the start till we left. Beach was absolutely amazing! Very clean! Food was plentiful, very good, limited room service menu. The only downfall was Men need to wear long pants in certain restaurants, when nice dress shorts should be acceptable. Pools were clean, swim up bar was great. There are 3 pools, we stayed at the VIP pool, no kids, which is what we wanted! We are tippers so a few dollars go along way with the strength of the drink ;) With all that being said, the Riu does need to work on their nightly entertainment, but it is what you make it! We also did a 'zip line 'tour, booked thru the hotel, was amazing, we recommend that! We also brought our own insulated large cups for drinks at the pool...the cups at the pool are really small. Little English is spoken, but you can still understand what's going on. We do plan on going back and staying at this Resort!"

"Fantastic trip!!! The room was excellent. We had a garden view room, but we could see the ocean and the pool. Beautiful. The food was delicious. The restaurants were absolutely superb. The buffet had lots of options and always delicious. We had no problem getting rooms close to relatives that went with us. The evening shows were okay. The band and violinist were the best. They were most entertaining. The beach was marvelous. The pool was good. Too bad the swim-up bar pool didn't connect to main pool was just a slight inconvenience. The waiters were great at attending to drinks. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting sun and relaxation. On the beach there were almost no vendors and no one pestered us. The fitness room was small and lacks equipment. The SPA was wonderful. It was clean and masseuses did a great job. The property grounds are well maintained, The drinks at the bar were good for me, if you want more alcohol in the drinks, just request more. The bartenders were always very accommodating. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend this resort. ."

"Stay was November 2012 for 7 days. All was well with slight disappointment from staff with slow response from being waited on at bars, restaurants and when calling for room maintenance (need towels, add'l bottle water, etc.). Maybe understaffed for size of resort? Also, variety of alcohol limited."

"Don't let the title confuse you, it was good, but it's just hard to compare after going to the Sandals Regency in St. Lucia. There are things that I loved about this place, but things I didn't like as well. The Buffet's were wonderful. We didn't get to go to many of the restaurants. The one we went to was the Geisha, (Japanese). I didn't really prefer it. We had heard bad things about the italian so we skipped it. I wish we would have gone to the steak restaurant. I didn't like having to wear a rist band the whole time I was there. Also, you have towel cards. It's the only way to get a towel at the towel stand. You have to return your towels to get them back. The Beach is OK, but there is a lot of seaweed in the water. The staff does a pretty good job of cleaning it off the beach though. I know there is nothing they can do about the water. The gift shop is bad and the staff in there is unfriendly. You get way better deals at the shops on the street between all the Riu resorts. Sometimes you pay half the price of that at the gift shop. The only time I used the gift shop was if it was something that required a credit card. I wouldn't use that on the street. VIP travel is excellent. If you go you have to do the excursion to saona island, (Hope I spelled it right). Bavaro is on the Atlantic side, where this will take you to the Carribean side. The water is much prettier there. The staff on the whole was incredible, especially them working the buffet, and swim up bar. They made our stay a blast. For the fridge in the room, at the back of it, turn down the temp on it about half way and leave the cabinet door that surrounds the fridge open when you can. Drinks get a lot colder. I wasn't happy with the liquors in the room. They give you 4, (Johnny Walker, Their island rum, Beafeeter Gin, and Smirnoff Vodka). I'm a whiskey drinker and not a fan of Johhnie Walker. After I finished that bottle...Oh Yes I did...I asked them for Jack Daniels, (The only other whiskey I ever saw they had). They will not substitute. That being said, IT'S ALCOHOL. 8-) This was something that definitely set it apart from Sandals. When we went to Sandals and I saw they put Teachers Scotch in my room I called down to the front desk and within 10 minutes I had McCallum 12. The pools are beautiful. The rooms are clean and look incredible. I have to say the room was better than Sandlals. My biggest complaint was the festivities shut down at midnight. The only thing open after that is the sports bar. I know I listed a few bad things here, but I just wanted you to know what we didn't like. For everything here we didn't like there were 5 things we loved. This has gotten long enough already."

"Our 25th anniversary trip to Riu Plaace Bavaro Punta Cana was awesome. The Riu is beautiful , clean and great food and service being only 9 months old at the time we visited.The hotel staff was extremely friendly, and did everything they could to make us comfortable. Our VIP travel representative was incredible !!! arranged our activities , shopping, safari, water sports , horseback riding, zip line & we had a blast ...We visited during hurricane season the first week of October and the weather was 88 degrees plus humidity and 2 short bouts of rain that lasted just a few minutes. Our trip to Riu Place Bavaro will never be forgotten. Thank you for a fantastic 25th anniversary..."
