Just back from a week at the Riu Palace and would have loved to have stayed longer. From the moment you enter the service is first class. Rooms are large and very clean. The buffet restaurant is excellent and the a la carte restaurants (Mexican, Italian, Steak, Japanese and Fusuion) are all first class. You have to book these a... More

We stayed at the resort through Jan 06-18 2015. From the moment you walk in, you cant help but notice a beautiful foyer . The ceilings are very elegantly decorated and the overall decor of the lobby is very nice. The staff at the front desk are extremely helpful and the check in went very smoothly without any delays. After... More

The lobby was amazing and the people were incredibly nice. The room was great and the ocean view was breathtaking. The food was great! We ate at the buffet for breakfast and... More

We stayed here for New Year's. Nice hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff. Buffet and restaurants had great food. Nightlife was walking distance from the hotel. We looked went to the Riu Cancun next door for a drink and it felt like a Mercedes dealership. We definitely preferred the ambiance at our hotel.

We had a great time! Our room was oceanview . It was awesome. Like most of the Rui's that have been renovated to a more modern décor, this has not. It is very beautiful with the rich woods, crystal chandeliers and stained glass in the ceilings. The only complaint I have, is the musty odor at the lobby bar. There... More

Nice resort. Major problem. They seem to think that the only music is loud music. At the pool all day, in the lounge at nite and even worse at the shows at the theater. You don't even need to be there, you can hear it loudly in your room until around 11:30. Great place for college break kids but not... More

My boyfriend and I spent 5 days here in January to celebrate my graduation from college. When arriving we were in awe. The resort is beautiful and the staff extremely friendly and hardworking, however we both were struck with severe food poisoning. The first night my boyfriend was vomiting from 12 am until 9 am, the second night I began... More
