    Riu's are my ultimate favorite properties! This one proves it shouldn't be anything less than spectacular.

    Gregg...what do you mean the Riu Palace opened in PC? Did they re-open or is this different from the Riu Palace at the complex where the Riu Bambu is located at?

    I went to that one back in 2002...that's where my DR experience started...

    Sort of confused by this...

    This is a brand new Palace resort, the Riu Palace Punta Cana, the other one is the Riu Palace Macao, and the new Palace is in the same complex, there are now 5 Rius there.

    Stormer is right, except for the number of resorts.

    The Riu complex in Punta Cana now contains six resorts:

    Hotel Riu Meleo - 260 Rooms
    Hotel Riu Taino - 360 Rooms
    Hotel Riu Naiboa - 362 Rooms
    Hotel Riu Palace Macao - 356 Rooms
    ClubHotel Riu Bambu - 560 Rooms
    Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana - 612 Rooms

    Riu Total in Punta Cana - 2510 Rooms

    The new Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana is between Riu Bambu and Gran Bahia Principe.
