Tried for 10 days to make 14 day reservation. RUI property web sites not as detailed as other 5 star resorts. Reservation representatives appear to not have enough detailed info. When asked a question instead of saying they would get answer and get back to me they send me to the properties web site to submit question.Did that twice in 5 days with no reply

All staff was amazing! Very responsive and attentive. Food was good as well. Proximity of hotel to airport was also great. Average rating aligned more to hotel itself... was dated and in need of update. Other hotels look to have undergone renovations- so seemed nicer.

My experience at RIU palace was pretty amazing The only complaint I have is the shortage of wash cloths, and the attitude of the young man who worked Friday evening (May 29th) service desk, who gave much attitude when my family and myself complained about no wash cloths and the unresolved phone request we had made. Hey told my cousin "ENOUGH"! I thought that was quite disrespectful. Other than that, it was a great experience! I would definitely return.
