Riu Palace Mexico abounds with European flourishes such as hand painted murals, floral ceilings rimmed in gold, and a tiny Spanish chapel. Splashing fountains, statues, gazebos, and wrought iron benches rest in a romantic courtyard beneath the shade of towering palms, while sprays of bougainvillea adorn slanted sun-shelters by two magnificent pools.

La Bodega, Don Julian, El Patio, and La Traviata restaurants offer specialty a la carte dishes and spectacular buffets. Recently revamped menus now offer a wide range of cuisine and finer ingredients at the a la carte restaurants, as well as the incorporation of a vegetarian menu in all restaurants. A lavish nightclub in whimsical design hosts nightly entertainment, and a pristine white beach along the mesmerizing turquoise sea promises to delight the senses and soothe the soul.

Deluxe and spacious guestrooms (mostly split-level) were renovated in 2012. All are beautifully decorated in rich wood and granite rose tile, offering a sitting area with mini-fridge and bar.

Endless amenities include waiter service at the renovated pool area, snorkeling, windsurfing, body boarding, kayaking, and scuba lessons in the pool! Riu Palace Mexico provides the best entertainment for adults and children. RiuLand Kids' Club offers activities for the little ones.

After a long flight we arrived at this hotel, we were greeted with a lovely refreshing drink and a row of smiling faces, we are still here until next Thursday and I have nothing but praise for this hotel and all the staff that work hard to make your stay fantastic, our room was 1038 and overlooks the hotel next door but it’s lovely and quiet with wild life and birds in the trees it’s paradise, the pools water is checked through out the day, plenty of sunbeds so no problem, beautiful coffee lounge to relax in out of the heat and the strawberry milk shake is yummy, lounge 24 caters just as it states 24hours great to grab some breakfast if on early start on a tour, plenty of restaurants to chose from all have something for everyone, what rating would I give this hotel as a whole 10/10 with everything, cannot fault anything, well done RIU palace Mexico keep doing what your doing

Beautiful resort, wonderful staff with plenty to do. Food was the best I have ever experienced with tours of their kitchens showing you how immaculate they are with their UV treated water and triple washed veggies ... separate prep rooms for each type of meat. Huge selection, friendly bars, beautiful beach, absolutely nothing negative at all.

Amazing Holiday

We had one of the best holidays ever staying at Hotel Rui Palace Mexico during the first 2 weeks of September. From checking in after a long flight to checking out after an amazing holiday we couldn't have been looked after any better. The hotel and rooms are spotless and well cared for. Our room was huge, well stocked with a mini-bar and optics, free safe deposit box and cleaned daily. Cleaners and grounds-staff are working throughout the day to ensure the hotel is looked after. There's also Wi-Fi throughout the hotel The all-inclusive package was excellent. There's a main buffet restaurant which serves a massive selection of food choices and also 5 themed restaurants - steakhouse which overlooks the beach, Italian, Mexican, A-la-carte and Japanese which was our favourite. (men are required to wear long trousers in the themed restaurants) The quality of the food in all the restaurants & the service was excellent. There's 4 pools which are situated close together near to the beach, including a swim up bar pool. We tended to use one of the more quieter pools and there were always sun beds available without having to do the early morning dash. The beach area had loads of sun beds and again there were always plenty available during the day. The entertainment team were great with lots of activities taking place during the day, however they didn't pressure you to join in and there was a good range of evening entertainment. The wonderful staff make the holiday experience at this hotel and couldn't do more for you. The welcoming, friendly service they provide is exceptional. We had fantastic service from Abraham during breakfast & lunch and from Carlos, Marcos & Carmen in the Japanese restaurant. This was our first time visiting Mexico. We had a fantastic time and met some great people from Liverpool and Glasgow. We'll definitely be returning and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
