    Recent stay was enjoyable

    Stayed 2/12/20 thru 2/22/20 and were very happy with our stay. The hotel is very beautiful with many restaurant options and 5 pools. We did not have to worry about getting chairs, especially on the beach there were a couple days it would a little more difficult around the pool area. The staff was accommodating and mostly helpful, we did have an issue with not getting room service when requested, that happened twice so that was a bit of a bummer. One other unfortunate occurrence was that one of the large mirrors over the sink area just randomly fell off the wall in the middle of the night! But when we called the staff was prompt at cleaning it up, although we did not get another mirror for the rest of the stay:( thankfully it was the end of our stay. The food was amazing with so many options to choose from. I would definitely go back!

    Great holiday

    The hotel was spotlessly clean. All staff were very friendly. Plenty of sun beds around five pools. Sometimes the music was a little loud, but didn’t spoil the holiday. Recommend the steak restaurant and the Japanese,. Good choice at breakfast.

    Hotel Riu Palace Costa Mujeres

    Buffet restaurant could be improved, felt it was a little small. All the themed restaurants were very good. Food could also do to be a little hotter, at times the buffet and the Roma food was a little cold. Location was very idyllic, although a little bit remote. First week was very windy, other than that weather was great.

    Happiness at the Riu!

    Loved the Riu Palace Costa Mujeres, spent Two weeks, very attentive staff. Food was great all around! Buffet and specialty. Only problem with the resort is letting the children swim in the swim up bar pool with the tables and chairs, only saw 1 hit their head, and another swim into another guest. It’s not necessary Since they have so many other pools. Beach was awesome with very deep sand. The evening entertainment was wonderful, just wished they had more dancing at night besides the disco at the neighboring resort. But you can’t have everything? Activities during the day were done well!
