Anse Marcel

Needless to say, since Hotel Riu Palace was built directly on Anse Marcel, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions at this property. Anse Marcel is a beautiful beach, completely tucked away in a bay, with some of the brightest blue waters I've ever seen. The sand is soft and white and the shape of the bay calms the waves into gentle ripples. For guests who are eager for some variety, there are some additional beaches worth investigating.
