Fodor's Review

This white wedding cake of a resort towers over Palm Beach with one eight-story and two 10-story towers. The lobby is done in a baroque European style that feels out of place for a beach resort. Food quality doesn't rise above the typical all-inclusive expectation. With no organized activities for children, the hotel isn't terribly family-friendly, and with large numbers of young people consuming lots of free alcohol, that's probably just as well. For a hotel its size, there are few on-site programs available. Rooms are either junior suites or regular doubles (doubles being carpeted) and have the signature in-room liquor dispenser of all Riu resorts.
