We had a FABULOUS time at the Rui Palace in Riviera Maya! It was probably the best vacation I have ever taken! Everything was absolutely PERFECT! I could not have wished for a better trip!
The Rui Palace was beautiful! We did have to wait to check-in, but it gave us time to explore a little, and we were in our room by 3pm. We had requested a double bed room, which was not available the night of check-in. They gave us a king room the first night and offered to move us the next night, but the king room they gave us was so wonderful and in a great location (first floor right near the pool) so we ended up keeping it all week! We loved it so we didn't want to move! The food was also incredible! It was a little inconvenient to go to the main lobby at noon to make dinner reservations, but you could make 2 days in advance and the restaurants were yummy! We loved the Japanese place! After one night we took a nap and slept through our reservations, we ate at the buffet and ended up eating there the rest of our trip because it was wonderful and we didn't have to get reservations and a seating time. The staff was wonderful! Everyone was helpful and friendly! We were treated like true guests and we felt like rock stars all week!!
We did not make it to any other Rui resorts, but we did take 2 excursions. We took a van with a group to Coco Bongo one night. That was amazing! Highly recommend this evening out for a great party. We also took a day trip to Isla Mujeres. That was one of our favorite days! We took a catamaran out of Cancun, went snorkeling, had a lunch buffet, got to ride a "spinnaker", got pictures with a shark, and had shopping time in Isla Mujeres! Then we partied that night in Cancun. It was an awesome day! Another evening we spent some time on 5th Ave.
A huge thank you to my new travel agent Sherri Hall from TripGuy Travel. I have never used a travel agent before and now I will never book a trip without her! She made it so easy! She even helped arrange our airport transportation at 7 am when we ended up taking an earlier flight! The planning actually became fun and knowing I had her just a phone call away if I needed anything during our trip let us fully relax and enjoy ourselves!
Thank you Sherri and Rui Palace for a wonderful, unforgettable vacation!
