“Very nice place on perfect location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We have had a very pleasent stay, a lot of space in the appartment, very clean.
Very nice and friendly people at the reception!
Perfect location, 2 min walk from the beach and 5th Avenue around the corner.
The perfect place for a stay in Playa.

The indeed spacious and luxory appartments are situated in green area at the beginning of 5th avenue, the street with lots of shops and nice restuarants. Staff is very friendly and supportive / pro-active. A/C works very well. Nice swimming pool.
Beach is at 2 minutes walking distance via Hotel Las Palapas; you can make free use of facilities of the Hotel on the beach.
Much better situated than large hotels outside Playa del Carmen.

Room Tip: - rooms with seeview are on the third floor

My husband and I went July 2012 with our 8 year old twin girls and my mother. The 3 bedrooms were perfect, 2 with balcony and each with its own climate control and bathroom. The location is primo - close to everything (beach, restaurants, etc.) but on the quiet end of the street. The pool was great. We loved the giant balcony off the den with its 2 hammocks and table and chairs. The place was very clean, very large, well priced and very well located. Not sure what else you could ask for. The staff was extremely helpful answering any questions we had and providing recommendations when requested. If we went back we would likely stay again.

Difficult to find if coming by car. Well located within the resort. Late arrivals arent dealt with particularly well and parking access was difficult. Grat rooms though, hammocks on balcony spacious clean airconditioned and well inventoried for self catering, excellent apartments.

We really liked these apartments. Very very spacious and very well equipped. Also, its at the quieter (north) end of 5th Avenue, and just off it. Which we being a bit older really liked! Simona and the staff were really helpful and friendly.

Tip: when you get picked up/taxi etc at Cancun airport, just ask for the Palapas Hotel - thats easier than asking and explaining and showing the exact address for the Riviera Maya Suites (we spent about 15/20 mins wandering around until we found a helpful taxi driver who knew). Theres a Cuban bar on the corner of 5th Avenue and 34th Street, and the Palapas and the Suites are on the left from there heading south down 5th. As I think someone mentioned here, the Suites are really in the grounds of the Palapas, as you can use their facilities/beach area etc.

Theres a really nice French cafe on the other side of 34th St/5th Ave (ie sorta opposite the Cuban bar) which I would recommend.

In summary, If we return to PDC, I would absolutely def stay at the Suites again.

Room Tip: The 3rd and top floor has the best view if you want to see the sea. Also, you wont hear people scrap...

The condo was well stocked, new, clean, modern and very spacious! The large patio with 2 hammocks was great. Use of Las Palapas beach and pool was essential for me and my kids. The condo is very convenient to the northern section of 5th Avenue for shopping and restaurants.

My husband and I recently stayed at Riviera Maya Suites. We were only there for 5 days but had one of the best vacations we have ever had. On our previous trips to Playa we have stayed at Palmar del Sol, which is also a beautiful condo and kind of a sister complex to Riviera Maya Suites. We chose to try something different this trip in the hopes of just a bit less noise in the early morning. Palmar is right on the corner of 5th avenue and can be a bit noisy late at night and in the morning as all the people are arriving to open their shops/restaurants, etc. Riviera Maya Suites is set back behind Palmar just enough so that you do not hear any noise from 5th avenue, only quiet. It is still only about a 30 second/1minute walk to 5th and about the same to the Las Palapas beach as well. We have enjoyed staying at this end of 5th avenue so much that I don't think we would ever choose a different location when we go back, which we will! Riviera Maya Suites is clean, spacious and very comfortable for a few nights stay as well as an extended stay. The washer/dryer is a bonus, less clothes are needed. Balconies are huge with really comfortable hammocks. A table and chair is also provided out on the balcony. The beach at Las Palapas, the beach club you use while staying at Riviera Maya, is one of the best in the area. We have brought our children who are 10 and 12, since they were 6 and 8 yrs old and they have always had the best time at their beach. We've taken many long walks up and down the beach area and Las Palapas is by FAR the best. Most of the other clubs/hotels tend to be rocky and/or seaweed ridden. You will not find that at here. Overall, you will NOT be disappointed staying at Riviera Maya Suites. We stayed on the 2nd floor, 2 bedroom unit and were extremely happy. Our view was one of the pool, plants, etc. and was gorgeous. The 3rd floor rooms do have the ocean view but you can always go up to the rooftop to take a peek at the ocean and watch the sunrise if you don't choose or cannot get a 3rd floor room. Plenty of seating up there. First and second floor room views are just as beautiful. It is a super safe area and we have NEVER felt any different on any of our trips to Playa del Carmen. 5th avenue is the best ever for shopping, eating and people watching. So much fun, we feel we are almost addicted to going there! The ONLY thing I can say that would be at all "bad" about our stay is that the beds are very hard. There is little you can do about this, beds are just generally firmer in Mexico and you will find this in virtually ANY hotel/condo/apartment in Mexico....not just Riviera Maya Suites. Just something to be expected when you vacation in Mexico...period. All in all....Riviera Maya Suites is top of the line!! Book it, go there and enjoy yourself!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, same quality. The only difference would be that the 3rd floor rooms have a dist...
