|The Riu Palace Costa Rica is a resortthat sits on the same property and stretch of the beach asthe Riu Guanacaste.It was a very nice complex which opened about a year ago.Everything was new and it had a modern design appearance. The hotel had 4 pools, one with a swim-up bar, surrounded by lots of loungers and shade.The beach has beautiful black sand, warm and clear water. It is shaded by lovely trees. Our Suite was very quiet and confortable. There was plenty of space to store our belongings. Free Wi-Fi was available everywhere and we had high speed connection in our suite. This is a big plus in chosing this hotel. Maid and other services were reliable and efficient.The are 4 a la carte restaurants, 3 of which (Japanese, Steakhouse and Fusion) have dress codes and require reservations. The other is the Italian restaurant and does not require reservation.The food was really good for an All Inclusive. For breakfast and supper the buffet was alwaysopened and everything was delicious. Lunch was at the pool restaurant Papagayo.There was also a huge choice of a good quality selection each day.The Riu Palace Costa Rica met our expectations. You will find at this resort everything you needto have a plaisant vacation. The service was very good and all the staff were always helpful.We had a great vacation and would recommend the Riu Palace to anyone who would like to spendsome time relaxing in in Costa Rica.
