Standard 24-hour all-inclusive resort with stunning grounds, a picturesque beach, four pools and amenities for every age

Resort Details

The recently refurbished Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana sits on the beautiful white sand of Arena Gorda Beach offering 24-hour all-inclusive perks. More than 600 spacious suites deliver a comfortable haven for when both families and couples alike need time out of the sun, equipped with satellite TV, plush bedding, patio and some even have outdoor jetted tubs.

Between the resort’s three buffets, five international restaurants and five bars you’ll find satisfaction no matter your preferences. The pool and beach are the main attraction here, with a lively swim-up pool bar, plenty of loungers and shade when you need it under palm trees or a cabana. Families love vacationing here because there’s something for every age including the RiuLand Kids’ Club, a 24-hour sports bar, a discotheque, Renova Spa and free admission to Splash Water World. Plus, windsurfing, tennis, a sauna and more are all part of your all-inclusive package!

Nearby Attractions

Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana is perfectly positioned for exploring Punta Cana’s natural beauty and experiences and resort concierge will assist in booking whatever you desire. If hitting the links is your perogative, Punta Blanca Golf Club sits just two miles away and offers special rates to Hotel RIU guests. Or, stray away from the resort and head to Hoyo Azul Lagoon for a magical dip in a cenote or soar above the rainforest on a ziplining adventure.

Easy day trips include a quick stop at Saona Island, or even a tour of the capital, Santo Domingo. Saona Island sits just a couple miles off Punta Cana’s shore—it’s part of the Parque Nacional de Este so it’s perfect for an undisturbed beach day free from crowds. Visit Monkeyland for an afternoon with primates—just be sure to hold onto your belongings! Get a taste of 16th-century Mediterranean life at the recreated city of Altos de Chavon or if shopping is your indulgence of choice, visit the 60 shops at Palma Real Shopping Village for clothes, jewelry, souvenirs and more. At the end of the day, doing no more than lounging on Punta Cana’s paradisiacal beaches is a vacation well spent.
