At a Glance


  • the exterior which replicates a grand, white, Victorian edifice
  • good for a girls' getaway for the mannerly staff will ask you to dance to the live music in the lounge
  • fun and friendly staffers like the one dressed in a chauffer’s uniform who opens the nightly buffet by reciting welcome in 25 languages


  • limited room views of the gorgeous beach
  • it is such a good value for the price, but don’t expect luxury
  • its new popularity equals high occupancy

Hotel Riu Palace Macao Review

After a major, much-needed renovation in 2012, this adults-only resort has gone from dowdy to stellar, having been brought up to a completely new level. Within the sprawling Riu complex of five hotels, it is far better than the two more basic sister properties with which it shares facilities and brings it not only closer to the more upscale Riu Palace, but often surpasses it. Waiter service is an option at the beach and the pool, so you can kick back and keep the Banana Mamas coming. Food deserves its now favorable comments; of the à la carte options, the chic pier-side Krystal restaurant is the standout with the steak house next up, and the buffet not far behind. It's a short stroll to the complex's shops on Caribbean Street, the new gym and wellness spa, and the popular Pacha disco, which looks stylin’ after its redo.
