This was one of the best all inclusives I have been to--great food, service and beautiful hotel. I liked the location and the beauty of the grounds and the ocean. The hotel is very new so it was really modern and clean. I also liked that there were 7-8 themed restaurants that took reservations. We actually went to another Riu... More

My husband and I looked through various hotels and read many reviews before deciding on the Riu Palace Peninsula for our honeymoon. We were looking for an all inclusive hotel that we could eat good food and relax in a resort style environment. What we got was essentially a large college campus and the worst case of food poisoning we've... More

Food- You need to book your restaurants by 8 am or you won't get in. Every restaurant including the buffet was amazing. The food was just perfect. Rooms- clean and spacious Pools- lots to choose from. Not over crowded and we always found chairs. Beach- was rocky but we love that look one area where there was no rocks also... More

Gorgeous hotel, breathtaking views and great service throughout the hotel! Food is good but you need to make reservations two days in advance for each restaurant, which I wasnt too keen on. Very clean and well kept hotel. Would love to go again!!

My second trip to the Cancun area. Have stayed at Moon Palace before where the entire experience was quaint, warm and relaxed whereas RIU palace was like being in a highway with too much hustle and bustle within a very limited hotel space.Front desk experience is bad as well. Rooms were very small and rooms had the cigarette smell. Even... More

2Nd visit to Mexico but the first to this Hotel: Really nice Hotel with great décor, attention to detail, every single member of staff will great you with a smile apart from the higher Managers, they will look away from you rather than look at you, also the reception staff are pretty much the same, shame really as they are...

My wife and I just returned from a six night stay at RPP from April 01-07, what a awesome resort ! This was our 11th trip to Cancun, and this resort would rank in the top two which we have stayed so far. I would actually rate it as high as another resort there which is ranked in the top... More

This was me and my partners first visit to Cancun. So naturally we were anxious. From the moment we arrived in the hotel everyone was so polite and friendly to us, Victor at the front desk check us in and was a great help! I work in hospitality in NYC and the way Victor made us feel welcome was above... More

Spent 8 days at the Riu Palace. I read many reviews and researched this hotel in great detail. Yes it is very nice and clean and shiny and new but, We were on the first floor right above the stage and the shows would start at 945. If you wanted to check out early and go to bed forget it!... More
