Give your family a break and head to Grand Riviera Princess All Suites Resort & Spa where 13 is your lucky number. Among the all-inclusive perks, 13 dining options feature chefs who take care of the work while you take care of yourself. Located on a palm-lined beach in the Mayan Riviera, the resort treats couples and families to 16 swimming pools and 13 bars.

All-inclusive means a stress free getaway: food, drinks and activities are included in the price of your vacay! Spend the day lounging under a palapa or find your favorite spot at one of the 16 pools. When it's time to eat, let your cravings guide you through 13 dining options: kids love the teppanyaki show at Miso, and the fresh shrimp fajitas at La Hacienda are sizzling! Grab cones from the ice-cream parlor and check out the nightly entertainment at Princess Theatre. Want to catch the game at 5th Avenue Sports Bar or show off your moves at Areito Disco? Drop the kids off at the evening Mini Club, where video games and a kids' disco offer them fun, while you're free to have yours.

Keep the fun going with water sports or head to the spa for a relaxing treatment. The royal treatment continues in your suite that offers elegant décor in spacious settings and a fully stocked mini bar. We recommend the Jr. Suite Deluxe for families: it's big enough for everyone and the bathroom has a Jacuzzi. Couples love the adults-only Laguna Villa Suite which includes upgrades like a one-day free spa package, access to the Platinum Lounge, a private pool and reserved beach area!

    No good if your disabled or have mobility issues

    No good if you have mobility issues.. disabled etc.. only ladders to get in and out the pools... there's sections of the resort you cannot use unless you PAY ALOT more money !!!! Does NOT state this when booking.. so if your disabled do not come here... swim up room. They wanted another £2500 !!! Those have walk in steps... if you pay extra and go platinum aparantly there pool has walk in to the pool steps... so if your an ordinary common customer with mobility issues your definitely screwed here !! .. the food is lovely.. the Al a cart restaurants are good to.. staff very friendly.. its very clean.. my only gripe is because your not all treated the same.. should not be section's your not allowed to go into !!

    Left behind by the boat

    Such BS! We couldn't even get a refund after being left in the ocean treading water for 2 hrs and sunburned to a crisp by the boat just because we mistakenly followed the wrong guide. Don't get this trip unless you want to be left in the middle of the ocean!!

    Princess Riviera

    Lovely hotel, be prepared to put your steps in though. I spend many hours on The Chill Out beach, Susana and Wil are amazing. Restaurants are varied and food served odds to a high standard, the alcohol and pop is branded and measures are merrily a guideline. Loved it

    My princess review

    The grand princess definitely deserves 5* the grounds were beautiful with animals walking freely around the resort with no care in the world. 10 mins walk to the white sanded beach and a few minutes walk to the main lobby. Staff are very friendly and welcoming they will go that extra mile to make your stay comfortable. Pools were clean and plenty of them. This resort has something for everyone. We did try one a la carte restaurant the mexicain one, we weren’t impressed waited ages to be seated and served when the food arrived it was nothing special, over cooked food,that evening it was extremely busy and we put it down to that. Buffet restaurant catered for my gluten free diet with plenty of food to choose from. Each evening there was a theme from Caribbean- International cuisine. If you fancy any excursions they have tour operators around the resort reasonably priced. We used ocean tours for a 3 in 1 trip through (Richy?) he approached us on the beach. Great guy and very informative. Excellent service. The hotel offers shuttle service to 4th avenue for $4 each way per person.

    A Memorable Stay with a Few Hiccups at Grand Riviera Princess

    A Memorable Stay with a Few Hiccups at Grand Riviera Princess From the moment we arrived at the Grand Riviera Princess Resort in Cancun, we knew we were in for a treat. The resort is vast and well-maintained, with staff constantly ensuring everything is pristine. It was our first experience at an all-inclusive resort, and it didn't disappoint! **Dining Delights and Disappointments:** We started our culinary journey at Las Olas. While the flavors were good, the ambiance was lacking, and unfortunately, I fell ill later that night. In contrast, La Hacienda provided a truly wonderful dining experience. The Mexican cuisine was delicious, and our server, Hugo, went above and beyond to make us feel special, attentive and personable throughout our meal. **Exceptional Service Across the Board:** The roaming bartender, Christopher, was a highlight of our evenings. He remembered our favorite drinks throughout our stay and added his special touch to each cocktail. At the hotel lobby bar, Platinum Stop #3, Julio was exceptionally welcoming, making us feel like we had a friend in Mexico. **Spa Serenity:** The hydrotherapy session at the Princess Spa was both intriguing and relaxing, featuring a mix of hot and cold experiences. The couples' relaxation massage was the pinnacle, with my therapist Rosaria providing an outstanding massage, complete with thoughtful touches like aroma therapy. They even surprised us with sparkling wine after our session to celebrate my wife's birthday! **Unmatched Hospitality:** Stephany, one of the concierges, stood out with her empathy and dedication. She ensured a memorable birthday celebration for my wife, including a special cake and stable internet for an important Zoom call—going above and beyond when others simply excused the poor connectivity. **Facilities and Amenities:** The resort offers an impressive array of pools, each with its own vibe, from tranquil to lively. We particularly enjoyed our room, despite a slight moldy smell which the staff tried their best to ameliorate. The dual hot tubs—one on the balcony and one in the bathroom—were a lavish treat. The private beach was also a highlight, providing everything we needed without ever having to leave the resort grounds. **Tips for Future Guests:** Make sure to ask the concierge for a list of restaurant reservations ahead of time as the app was a bit tricky to use for this purpose. Also, don't miss the plaza events—Thursday night was a blast! **Overall Impression:** Despite a few minor issues, our stay at the Grand Riviera Princess was filled with luxury, relaxation, and some of the friendliest staff we've ever encountered. I highly recommend this resort for anyone looking to indulge in the all-inclusive experience in Cancun. The thoughtful touches and attentive service truly made our vacation memorable.
