Nice suites with all the usual features, but no bathrobes (so ask housekeeping for them). Like the whirlpool bath but why is there no lighting in the bath/shower space? Also the hairdryer is very underpowered so ladies don't expect to dry your hair with it!
Food is very good in the buffet restaurant and Chillis (by the pool for lunch). We didn't bother with any of the other restaurants but heard no complaints.
The ability to share the other RUI hotels locally is excellent and worth having a look around at. We liked the coffee bar at the RUI Palace Mexico although the lighting makes it feel quite cold and clinical.
This hotel lacks a coffee bar. Also the cocktails are made with overly sweet local drinks, which suits some but not us.
The hotel is beautiful, clean and spacious. All staff were helpful and friendly. Location is great with a nice walk into the town.
