Hotel staff are very welcoming and nice. Restaurants are pretty good. All facilities are super clean - you can always see staff cleaning everything all the time. On-site Covid-19 testing facilities for the travelers who need test reports to fly back to the US. Loved the whole experience

My friend and I stayed for a week. The staff was very attentive and friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was very good. We really enjoyed our stay. The Italian restaurant wasn’t our favorite but the variety and freshness at the buffet made up for it!

The staff was simply amazing. The rooms were gorgeous and we had a huge balcony. The view was breathtaking. Food, drinks, and location was perfect. The only complaint I have is that my shower area was dark, but had it been a couples trip that wouldn't had been an issue. Can't wait to stay there again.

We went to Mexico for 10 days and had constant surprises about what's open & closed currently, so heres an honest review! RIU PALACE PENINSULA: room service is closed. Bottle service in the room is no longer available. The food at the buffet is open, self service, clean, and the BEST buffet food I've EVER eaten in the entire world. If you love buffets, go to riu peninsula. The service here is excellent too. The kids club is open. It's a tiny room with a tiny wading pool, but they've moved the activities outside and the ladies there are wonderful! In room babysitting is closed. All the shows and watersports are open (kayak, boogie boards, and snorkels are free, but theres not much to see with snorkels). All the bars and restaurants are open. Endless supply of booze. Top shelf alcohol is free, but you just have to ask for the brand you want. Best of all - you're not constantly being bugged for upsells, timeshare, or day trips at this hotel. If you want to buy an excursion, you go to them The rooms all have pretty ocean view balconies, but the beds are hard, sheets are scratchy and the rooms are white and clinical. The rooms are not amazing, but the maintenance team is very helpful. This is way outta town. 15min / $15usd taxi ride to the tourist part of town. Enjoy!
