Great Overall Value

Overall everything was really good. The pools and beaches were top notch. They were doing their best to manage the current seaweed problem, but once a few feet into the water everything cleared up. There was a variety of entertainment throughout the days and evenings which kept things fun. The staff did a great job putting on shows. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in all matters. The food was good, but nothing over the top or extravagant. The restaurants don't require reservations, but they are small so there is a little bit of first come first serve. Either arrive at the restaurants early or late to have your best shot at getting seats. The resort caters to a slightly older crowd. There were very few children or people under 40 in the resort.

Incredible!

Riu Palace Mexico far exceeded our expectations !The food was excellent with such a variety to choose from it was impossible to go hungry ! The rooms were spacious with a well stocked refrigerator and the shower was great! What made our stay special was the service,every single person we had contact with went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It was truly amazing to see such a dedicated staff,front desk,housekeeping,groundskeepers,porters,bartenders,activity directors(who also put on shows at night,singing and dancing)and the waitstaff especially! We loved this place !!!

Average

The first impression was that the rooms were not very good. They are really in need of a facelift. The service was exceptional. Seemed like everyone cared about you and how your experience was. The buffet food was buffet food. Not great, not bad. The 5 or so restaurants were less than impressive. The steaks were continually over cooked. The Italian was probably the best option of the group. The pools were fantastic! Good recreation with the Other Services staff. Overall it was average. For the money I think it fir, but will be spending a little more next trip.

What's to Love

No reservations needed for any of the restaurants.

This palatial paradise has two shimmering pools, plus a prime beachy location. Sun worshippers, you'll be in love.

Tucked into a gated, upscale community, the swanky decor here is modern and chic.

This Beach Eden is geared for families and adults, so the crowd isn't a rowdy party crew.

Weights. Cardio. Stretching. It's going on every morning and afternoon.

Dipping into a relaxing steam bath and whirlpool after your stress-smashing workout.

Carving out some much needed naptime on the beach. The swaying palms will be your lullaby.

 

What We'd Change

Riu Palace Mexico's huge, lush grounds means there's lots of walking in store for guests. But there's no better way to work off vacation calories like a stroll around this beautiful resort.

 

Why You Should Go

Playa del Carmen offers oceans to do nearby: Mayan ruins, shopping, Xaman-Ha Aviary and golf.

Beach comb your way up and down the shores. Stop by a neighboring Riu for a free drink or two.

The exceptionally friendly staff always greets you with a smile and will pamper you the moment you arrive.

RiuLand keeps the kiddos entertained while you book a stress-smashing day at the spa.

Looking for some friendly competitions - why not, right? Tennis, ping pong and volleyball are favs.

Hotels will collect 20 Mexican pesos per room per day on check out; the proceeds will be deposited in an environmental trust to fund local projects. The Municipalidad of Solidaridad thanks you for your understanding and support of this worthwhile endeavor. Thank you and enjoy your visit.
