Riu palace mexico

We haven't been since 2007 so I could not remember can you bring food from the lunch buffet back to your lounger on the beach?

No on bring food back from the buffet unless they added to go packaging since the last time I there. Lunch is also served at the beachfront restaurant. They did renovate the entire resort last year. Lots of purple. Bathrooms in the room feature an open concept.

There is a bbq on the beach every day and you can take that on plastic plate onto the beach but don't think you would be able to take things from restaurant .

You should be able to as long as you can wrap it up in a paper napkin, or put it on the plates that jpandkg speaks of. They are not going to let you take the table service or glass items to the pool or the beach.

swami, they replaced the old beach restaurant with one next to the new pools. The main buffet is closed and this new open air buffet is the only lunch option unless they are also cooking on the beach that day.

zoeg, Bob is still on his river trip through Central Europe. Should be back in another week or so. I miss his post too.

At the RIU Palace Mexico now. Some days there is a buffet on the beach NOT everyday. You can pack up some food on plastic plates at the 24 lounge to take away. Sure wish I brought a rain coat!! Also, the ac in the rooms are hard to regulate--either too cold or the floor is sooo wet from humidity. Right now sitting with my travel blanket over my legs.
