Riu has done it again but this time in Costa Rica,  in the past few months Riu has opened a new palace hotel in Punta Cana and in Cancun.  The latest grand opening will be the Riu Palace Costa Rica. The  5-star resort,  is located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica on the edge of the beach of Matapalo.  This hotel will have the same fresh new look as the hotel in Punta Cana and Cancun.  The hotel is scheduled to open in November 2012 and we have already made several bookings.

The new Riu Palace’s have 4 ala carte restaurants and 24 hour room service.  The rooms have fully stocked mini bars and of course the signature Riu liquor dispensers.  Guests staying at the Riu Palace will also have access to the Riu Guanacaste.    I just returned from the new Riu Palace Peninsula in Cancun and the food was wonderful.  The new palace buffets are excellent and the service is second to none.

The new Riu Palace will have 4 pools and a swim up bar.   The rooms are wonderful and this hotel is offering the 2 room family suites for families traveling with children and need the adjoining room category.  The new Riu rooms are very vibrant and c0lorful a huge change in decor versus the older Riu Palace’s.  If you have been waiting to visit Costa Rica now is the time and this is the hotel.  Call us today to get the Grand Opening rates.

    We spent Feb 10 thru 17 at the Riu Palace. Accommodations were excellent. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beach and pools were beautiful. Food was good. The only suggestion that I would make is that the reservation required system is not very efficient. Tried to make a reservation for the Japanese restaurant two days before leaving and were told that both seatings were completely booked. They also do not enforce their policy of not being able to reserve chairs by the pools. Chairs remained vacant except for a towel for many hours and therefore we were not able to find one to use. I would recommend this hotel..
