Young Travelers

When I was looking for a place to bring my friend for his birthday I researched Cancun extensively. My name is Steven and I am 24, my friend Josh is 27. We are both single guys who were looking for a party weekend. Let me get one thing clear... Riu Palace Peninsula was absolutely immaculate, with incredible services and food. I highly recommend it to any couple who wants to get away while enjoying their time in Cancun. Notice how I said couple. I would say 99% of the resort was couples, which isn't a bad thing! It just wasn't what two single guys wanted unfortunately. we still had an amazing time and don't regret a thing! I would just like to give an accurate representation of what to expect.

Good getaway

Went with friends. Overall great experience!! Very attentive and accomodating staff. For the most part the resort is was well kept and clean. The beach was impeccable and very well kept. Few downfalls of the resort include: -pool bar water was very merky and cloudy. There was workers tending to it and cleaning throughout the day but it still remained this way. -toilets in most of the public bathrooms were clogged and left unattended quiet often leading to an unpleasent surprise when simply trying to use the bathroom. -food was pretty good aside from most of it being buffet style. depending on what time you got there it tasted like it had been sitting there for hours. But I suppose that's the case for most resorts.

Amazing place

This was my second time using cheap caribbean And they do not disappoint. The reps from cheap Caribbean are amazing and the staff at the resort are some of the kindest people I have met, they are so hospitable and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful and they clean and restock your towels everyday. One thing that I love about the hotel is that they have 6 restaraunts that you do not have to make reservations for and the food was amazing. The beach is beautiful and that was my go to spot all vacation. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will also be back in he near future. 5 stars all around!

Had a Great Time

The resort was beautiful! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. 2 of the 4 days we were at the resort it rained. It was really nice the resort took this into account and set up various inside activities for the guests to enjoy. We had an oceanfront room and the view of the grounds and ocean were amazing! The only issues we had were the refrigerator in the room didn't keep the beverages very cold and there was no control to turn it down. We also enjoy having a coffee maker in our room and one day there was no coffee left in the room. When we requested coffee it was not delivered to our room. We were able to get some at the front desk to take to our room for the next morning. We didn't care for the Italian restaurant but the steakhouse was fabulous! It was a great get away to relax for a few days!

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The uber dazzling stretch of white sand, tropical flora and crystal clear aquamarine water.

Stress-ousting massages, steam baths and saunas at the delicious spa. It's a Melt-a-thon.

RiuLand - supervised activities for kids 4-12 while you get your drink & relaxation on.

The day trip to Isla Mujeres to see the sea turtles and all the electrically colorful fish.

The more-than-delish Mexican nosh spot and steakhouse. (Nom, nom, nom.)

Renting a moped or scooter and tooling around, taking in all the natural beauty.

Getting a bottle of tequila sent to your room for your birthday.

 

What We'd Change

While the nightly entertainment may not be for everyone, you are close enough to the heart of Cancun to find something that will strike your fancy.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 13 miles away from the airport so that Beach Relief aka Your Vacay will start before you know it.

Mayan ruins are on site and near (Chichen Itza). For history buffs, it's a great dose of antiquity.

The resort is off-the-beaten path, but you can hope on a shuttle to the hot spots in Cancun.

There are oceans of water sports: kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing and more.

When you're not in the luscious ocean, you can hit the gym or play beach volley ball.

Travelers report excellent service, that you'll feel like Beach Royalty. (It's a palace, after all.)

You can rent jet skis and for a fee, go scuba diving. Take the plunge.
