After a complete overhaul in 2012, the Riu Palace Macao reopened as an adults-only, all-inclusive property. Rooms, public areas, the pools, and restaurants all got a facelift, introducing a more modern, sleek aesthetic to the Riu. Spaces -- rooms, in particular -- feel brighter and much more comfortable, with white color palates and pops of bright colors that keep the vibe playful. The hotel boasts a great beach and a ton of all-inclusive features -- including a free scuba diving lesson in the pool -- but still lags a bit in service. The Riu has a group of loyal followers who come to drink the brand-name booze and party by the pool, but there are other similar options nearby worth checking out, including the Majestic Elegance and Barcelo Bavaro Palace.
