I was there for 5 nights with 3 adult children. We stayed in two rooms in the main building.The property was very clean and we had no issues with the rooms or staff. Drinks were good and plentiful. Party atmosphere. We were not happy with the food. Not being either fish or adventurous eaters, we stayed with the meat and recognizable items. It was overcooked and under seasoned. We ate at both the Italian restaurant and Steakhouse. The pasta was gummy and thick in all restaurants. The ribs at the steakhouse were tasty, but should have had more sauce. The steaks were cooked to higher temps than we were expecting. The room service options are all pre-wrapped items. The nachos were chips with cold cheese. I saw no evidence of “snacks” except a selection of things in the sports bar. Not what Americans think of as snacks. It is a straw free resort, so bring your own if you prefer them. The nightly entertainment was nice, but we could hear it from our rooms. If you need quieter rooms, they have a VIP (adults only) section, which are rooms in separate buildings further from the entertainment stages. The pool and beach were very nice. Guests reserve seats by the pool early, even though they ask you not to. The service by the pool was excellent. They have activities (yoga/zoomba) some days. We visited the water park- about a 5 min walk- 6 large slides and a kids area. They have a shuttle to the nearby Riu Party. The transportation to and from the airport was timely and convenient.

The property was beautiful with flowering hedges and different types of palm trees. The beach was stunning with the contrast of white sand and bright blue ocean. The food was plentiful with many options. The best thing about Riu Palace Bavaro is the people we met and spent time with.
