    Royalton Riveria Review 10/10!

    One hell of a trip to the Royalton Riviera Cancun resort for a week! The staff always have a smile on their face and happy to see you. Great food, very beautiful scenery. A special shoutout to the receptionist Maria, the server Israel, the luggage chauffeur Willy, and excursion planner Wilfred. They went above and beyond! I would also like to give special recognition to the fitness squad - Luis, Jorge, Eddie, Astrid, Iatima, and the whole Royalton Fit Facility. As a fitness enthusiast, I'm always curious how I am going to handle my workouts and upkeeping my fitness when traveling. Royalton Fit made this trip a breeze with fitness. Amazing gym, and the staff makes you feel very welcome. They have a ton of classes & personal training lessons as well while you're there! I would definitely recommend the gym selling protein shakes, pre-workout, etc for an additional, I'd be happy to pay for that! The buffet and restaurants are AMAZING! Great drinks, fast and friendly bar service. Tennis courts upstairs are very well maintained, and usually not very many people! They do an awesome job filling their schedule with entertainment plans... pool parties, shows, activities, etc! But overall, I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Cancun!

    Training needed for Chefs, Bartenders, management.

    Service was great, having butler was great as booked all suppers for us others had to wait. Food not great - really need to train Chef’s. Drinks were inconsistent- Taffer would have a meltdown, again more training. Need people to clean beach, rake seaweed, clean up garbage that other idiots wouldn’t dispose properly. Wedding venue was changed short notice and did not follow any instructions on seating arrangements- came up with their own idea which was ludicrous, only a few people could see Bride and Groom. Again Training needed!

    Best vacation!

    This was a fantastic trip! Everything from the food to entertainment was an enjoyable experience. A special thanks to Milton and Itzamary from the "Vibe team" at the pool for our daily entertainment. It was full of laughs and such a memorable experience!!!

    Nice place but Diamond club not worth it!

    Start with the positive: The room absolutely amazing!!! Loved our family room and we did have a roof top which made it more enjoyable!!! The negative: No service! Butler is useless! Ordered coffee and breakfast for little one in the morning- never happened. NO TOP SHELF ALCOHOL! If you are allergic to capitaine Morgan like I am, don’t come here! No appeleton rum, no appelrol sprits, no grey goose! The choice are not top shelves and that’s everywhere on the resort - even at the lounge!!!
