    Is the water park adults only? We just booked Riu Palace and thought we had access to the waterpark too.

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Jen!

      The Riu Republica is an adults only hotel and its Splash Water World is exclusive for hotel guests. If you have booked in the Riu Palace Macao or in the Riu Palace Bavaro, you have access to another Splash Water World. 🙂

    Buenos Dias,
    We have already stayed in your resorts and we did enjoy it.
    It was in December 2016, between 8th and 15th (room 3003) and we are going
    to come back again next April on the 15th at RIU REPUBLICA
    During that stay, we are planing to get the visit of our son (adult)for one day
    (not overnight) who will be working at this time in Punta Cana.
    Are there any conditions or agreements for us to have our son as guest during
    day time ?

    Thank you for your answer,

    Ms & Mrs CHELLI

    We are going to Riu Republica for the second time in October. Do we have access or privileges at any other Riu hotel

    • Riu Hotels

      Hi Jim!

      Many thanks for your comment 🙂 No, the Riu Republica is not in our Punta Cana Resort, where we have our other hotels. But the Riu Republica has a lot of services to entertain you. For example, this hotel has its own Splash Water World 😀
