The hotel was an absolutely perfect vacation resort. The accomodations were splendid, the restaurants offered a wide variety of cuisine(and all the food was excellent). The resort was always spotlessly clean, and the service staff were the most efficient, friendliest, and most accomodating staff I have ever encountered. The grounds and pool areas were impeccably maintained. I would highly recommend... More

I was here this past week, and I must say that the resort is very well maintained. It is always clean, the room was large and comfy, roomservice was prompt, the staff were all friendly and helpful. It was particularly nice having a Jacuzzi on the balcony in the adults only villa, and it was nice and quiet.

As typing, I'm still waiting in the lobby for the room to be cleaned. I arrived at 2pm and was told the villa will be ready at 4.15pm because I've asked for higher floor. That is ridiculous for a 5 star resort. It was 30min waiting at front desk to check in. It's definitely not pleasant waiting around after 11... More

So we were 2couples aged between 25-30 we originally booked the caribe but the hotel had overbooked and had to transfer us. We were fine about this as the palace is a much nicer hotel so it was like an upgrade. On arrival we were met by friendly attentive staff and a welcome drink. Of course when we were checking... More

This was our third stay at the Riu Palace Peninsula since it opened 3 years ago. We've enjoyed all four Riu Hotels in the Cancun Hotel Zone but the Palace Peninsula is our favorite. Why? Well when you stay at the Palace Peninsula you have access privileges to all four sister properties … and yes, we do actually visit them... More

Wow where do I start. This place is simply amazing and really is paradise. We visited 25th June 2014 until 9th July for our honeymoon. On arrival the staff were friendly and we was greeted with a lovely refreshing cocktail to start our honeymoon. We were given our room on floor 9 room 936, what a view! The room was... More

I don't often write reviews but I couldn't not share my fantastic experience at this hotel. One of the best assets of this hotel is by far their staff. Throughout are whole two week stay we never came across one rude, arrogant or ignorant member of staff, they were all very polite, professional and always had a smile on their... More

The stay was great. Everyone was friendly. I liked the shows. The beach could be better. Food was amazing. We took a tour of the kitchen. I enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes. We did not have any problems making reservations to the speciality restaurants.

We stayed with another family of 3 for a week at the RIU Peninsula in Cancun. We researched ahead of time and upgraded to a corner room with a jacuzzi on the balcony. Our friends stayed in a standard room and experienced room envy for the entire trip. Upgraded room was larger and balcony was awesome. We liked the way... More
