I enjoyed my time so much at this hotel the first time I visited the Dominican Republic that I chose to stay there again on my second visit. It is a very good location , the staff is extremely professional and attentive to the needs of the guests. The rooms are very spacious and the grounds are well manicured and kept . I recommend only the the buildings be painted for a better aesthetic look, other than that Riu palace Bávaro will continue to be my choice of Hotel when I return to Dominican Republic

My two daughters and I recently stayed here for 4 nights. Due to COVID testing system they have I do not recommend staying here. Let me start by saying testing is done out of a joint room. There's 1 woman doing the collection and all the patients' tests after collection are placed on a table TOGETHER! They are not placed in a bag with identification. They are just sitting on the table. Perfect scenario for a mishap. My daughter's test came back "positive" and the lab never notified me. I had to go to the front desk and question the missing results. My test and my other daughter's test came back negative. We had all just tested 2 days prior to arriving as I wanted to be responsible and confirm we did not have COVID. All test prior were negative as well. I refused to believe she was positive. I asked if she could be retested immediately (at that moment) and was told lab staff was gone for the day testing to be done in the am. In the interim we were to stay in a COVID positive part of hotel to quarantine and the food or anything we need will be brought to us. I insisted on going to a private doctor or medical office in the area. Luckily for us the gentleman at the front was able to find a 24 hr lab 15 mins away. $260 later she was tested for both rapid and PCR, the results came back NEGATIVE as I thought.We did not receive an apology from management nor any compensation for this whole ordeal. My kids and I are completely traumatized as this ruined our vacation.
