    Please read Riu Palace Fire in Laundry and Kitchen area No Casualties

    Hey Andrea,


    The RIU Palace had a fire incident this morning which rendered the resort non-operational, all people have been evacuated without casualties. The fire consumed most of the laundry and main kitchen.


    People needing to travel to day are being escorted to their rooms to pick up their belongings so that they can prepare at the RIU Antillas for their departure to the airport. All other will be accommodated either in the RIU Antillas or other on island properties if needed.


    This is an fyi just if you receive any questions or comments in the forum. Will keep you posted with further updates.


    Have a great day.

    Good job with the report. I have heard there were NO smoke detectors going off. How can a hotel not have smoke detectors?

    the resort is still closed.
    all the guests have been relocated to other all inclusive properties.
