Adults only chat rooms on skype
I seen a max of 2 couples using it all week at one time.3) The VIP Pool and my bone of contention.
We, like many others chose the VIP section to be away from the young kids on our holiday as ours are older now.....
The staff should set the tome at this pool and any that want to sleep or read quietly should be directed to the 2nd pool.
It's a waste of a facility now and the VIP pool is signing up for a very quiet holiday.
[Details]No bellboy to greet or help with the luggage, you must carry your luggage from the bus drop off to inside the hotel. I was then given a map and told to go for something to eat because the room was not ready.
When I returned I was given room keys and told the suitcases would follow shortly.
For the price we paid I think it was not worth the value. The food was excellent, the staff was friendly, the hotel was nice. As for downsides; there are nicer Riu Palaces out there, but that's not something you can blame on anyone. The staff are amazing and the resort is above average. [Details]Riu Palace Bavaro was a really great place to stay.I thought we paid VIP for a kid free experience, not for a cemetery pool experience as many began to call this pool.After all, there was an empty quite pool 200 feet away that the older folks could have slept and read their books by all day without killing the vibe by the VIP section.but we also like to party a little and prefer not to get in the cesspool where people drink for hours upon hours and no one gets out,,,,and the music is thumping all day. The VIP pool is beautiful, swim up bar and large speaker system yet the entire time we were there the music was kept at a minimum.
Anytime, it was raised the older clientele would complain and it would be turned very low again.
The beach was spectacular but it's not private so many locals will continue to come up to you trying to entertain you or sell you items. Almost everyday at one of the a la carte restaurants many people would walk out after the main course or would only get half way through the menu and leave.
