Riu Palace Peninsula is the ONLY place we stay!

This was our 3rd stay since 2013 and we LOVE THEM!!! Everyone is treated like royalty, food is fabulous & the drinks are always flowing! They surprised us on our 2nd night with a bottle of Champagne & chocolates even though we were not celebrating any special event. Hope to be back again REAL soon! : )

Wonderful resort!!!!

This is the second time I have stayed at a Riu resort and they’ve exceeded my expectations each time. They are consistent and comfortable. The service is always amazing. What I love about Riu is that they always have great food. I’ve stayed with a couple other resorts in Mexico and I always feel like getting good food is a roll of the dice but here they have something to accommodate any taste. Another awesome thing about Riu is that they have a 24 hour sports bar that stays open with drinks and snacks which is super helpful if you’re a night owl. And a helpful tip, if you stay at any Riu you have access to the ones around you, and there’s three in this area; 5 in playa del Carmen! My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon here, we had the jacuzzi suite and it was amazing! The room was spacious and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub that separated the bathroom from the bedroom area was wonderful, as was the one on the patio overlooking the ocean. We were on the 8th floor so the view was perfect. Definitely bring a laptop and/or a cord to connect your phone to the tv so you can watch your favorite shows when you’re relaxing in the room, there’s only like 3 English channels on the tv.

Wonderful resort!!!!

Love this place!

We have now stayed here twice. The service here is second to none. The resort itself is amazing and can be recognized from everywhere on the drive in. All rooms have a stunning view. The food is phenomenal!! Our favorite was definitely the lunch Buffett. They have everything you could ever want to eat. The staff makes you feel as if you are their one and only responsibility. They're staff is always coming up with things to do by the poolside during the day and the theater at night. The main bar in lobby has great martinis and in the evening there is usually a pianist playing beautifully. We will definitely be back for a third time!

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.
