The grounds

The beach

Located on the stunning Guanacaste Coast, Riu Palace offers a picture perfect beach getaway for your family in welcoming Costa Rica. The sprawling resort is set on a stunning rugged beach and boasts numerous ocean facing pools. We loved the large family suites with private terraces and separate bedrooms for those travelling with children. Our kids couldn’t get enough of swimming in the ocean and dipping into the large swimming pools after a full day of sun and play.

Activities were endless from water sports and parties to live shows each evening. ¬†Children are treated to fun activities at RiuLand as well as special performances every other evening by Riu’s mascot Calu. The Splash Waterpark was a huge highlight for our family where the adrenaline inducing waterslides and energetic splash pad kept our children busy for hours.

Dining options were abundant and varied from fine dining at Krystal to Japanese fare at Tokio. We loved the gourmet offering at the tempting buffet each breakfast and dinner at L’Anfora¬†was the perfect spot if you’re craving a touch of Italian fare. Meat lovers will be grabbing their dinners at Papagayo Steakhouse where each juicy cut was prepared to perfection. Staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and even arranged a special birthday celebration for our son.

If you’re looking for a friendly yet luxurious all-inclusive resort with stunning scenery and plentiful amenities Riu Palace is the ideal place. Located adjacent to a plethora of sights and nature parks you can also easily take day trips to explore the stunning country during your stay. A great choice for families looking for natural surroundings, rugged beaches, and plenty of sunshine in one of the friendlies countries we’ve ever visited.
