I was very worried about this hotel because of some of the review I seen over the past few weeks but this trip was amazing! The hotel is far on the french side in a beautiful cove filled with butterflies (Yes Butterflies) so cab fare is a little steep between 50-70 Euros is you fly in on the Dutch side....

Before I booked this trip, I read a number of other reviews about this resort. We have stayed at other all inclusive places, so I took them with a grain of salt. I know you can't please everyone. This resort is secluded and very well kept. The grounds are beautiful. We had a superior marina suite, which is backs up...

I was very worried after reading all the negative reviews but now I’m thinking….complainers will complain about everything and anything! We vacationed at the Riu from Oct 31 thru Nov 7 and it was a pleasant experience from the time we landed to the minute we left. Our driver from the airport to the hotel was very pleasant and told...

Bad points. Everyone says their shower is too hot. Room 2305 only has 1 temperature of water for shower and sink, slightly cooler than the ocean. Front desk has sent maintenamce every night only to hear it should work now. I give up. Next point is entertainment. Not fair to performers when sound or lights don't work. Ricky the fox...

I was taken to this hotel intending to stay on my next visit to the island. We wanted to see the beach but were informed the new owners had changed the rules. Basically so the local couldn't enter. How rude is that? They can go to a country, buy up the land and properties, then segregate it's people. I don't...

We went to the Rio Palace the third week of August 2015. The trip from the Airport to the Hotel was crazy but we made it. Check in was fast and the receptionist took our bags, escorted us to our room and oriented us to everything there. He was great. We really loved our week there. Food was great. Weather...

When I came in the hotel I was pleasantly surprised how it well maintained - looks like it get face lift recently. Room was clean, nice colors.

I am giving 4 stars due to these circumstances. On our room toilet was loose, shower height poses a safety issue especially to short persons, apparently there' s no power generator. Also, we ordered room service one morning and breakfast was served almost two hours later. Other than that service was great! Thanks to Annie, Christian, Elbin, Pipo, their service...
