We have been to many all inclusive hotels in many countries and we thought this was the best so far. Pros: The food was great especially the buffet. The alcohol was brand name including Dos Equis served at the buffet and Don Julio tequila. Eating outside at the buffet was great and our waiter Julian in the morning and lunch... More

Riu Palace is my preferred place to be. Been coming to this resort at least once a year since it opened. Previously would go to the Riu Vallarta and Riu Jalisco. I agree with all the praise everyone has posted. It is truly a magnificent place, but I now have two complaints. Travelled Mar.28/Apr.11. Little did I know, this was... More

We just got back last night from our 7 day vacation at this resort and I can't say enough about it. We had the best time of all!! Great beach, great service, great food. The people working at the resort make it a memorable experience. They really can't do enough for you. The entire resort is spotless and you can... More

Cons.... 1. They need bathrooms closer to the pool and beach. 2. I asked for a topper for the bed never received it. 3. Got a drink at the pool bar and it was tequila on the rocks and there was pink floaters in it. So I think the glass was dirty. 4. I think they water down the alcohol.... More

We usually stay at the Riu hotels in Cancun so this was the first time visiting this area. The staff was very accommodating but the food did not have the selection or quality that we experienced in February at the Riu Palace Penninsula and became boring after a week. However the service in the restaurant was wonderful. We frequently had... More

My husband and I just returned from the Riu for the second time. Our experience last year was terrific, this year, not so good. From having to save pool chairs at 5:00 am to noisy, obnoxious, rude, inconsiderate spring breakers and that was just the parents... to having a theft in our room which was not handled by the hotel...

I only selected very good because good was not an option. Yes, the resort is above average, but it's not very good. The rooms are small and the food leaves much to be desired. The shows were not very good at all. The beach at the resort was very disappointing. On the upside, the pool was very nice and the... More
