          Kris L
          Do you need a reservation for the specialty restaurants at the Playacar and is there a dress code?? We visited the Riu Palace in January and the website stated a dress code for men was to wear long pants. We ate at the amazing steak house, but many guests (men) were wearing shorts....granted my adult children would have preferred the khaki shorts, but I made them wear the pants and change after the meal. Just curious if we can avoid bringing khaki long pants on this vacation.....

          We only do buffet on vacation as we have young kids and they can't sir still. I'm hearing my husband has to have dress code even for buffet just like la carts is this true? Cause he never dresses up for any other Riu hotels we have been to but hearing this place is more strick. As we leave tomorrow morning June 20th

          Hi, there is no dress code as such in any of the restaurants, men are NOT allowed to wear sleeveless tops (vest tops etc) of an evening, but other than that - it's fairly relaxed.
