This was our first time visiting Mexico and I am so glad we did. The 8 and a half hours flying wasn't good for my wife as she hates flying but loves the sun, Finding the sun away from canaries islands in April was hard to do unless we went long haul. First of Flying We upgraded to premium economy and the extra leg room and the use of the airport lounge before we flew was a great way to start our holiday . Hotel What can I say but pretty amazing in all aspects from its cleanliness to dining, Reception to maids and bar staff. The staff totally made your holiday that much better they were so helpful and always smiling even though they seemed to work long hours they always were very attentive to your requirements if it was making your fresh omelette every morning to pouring your drinks at your end to your day Check in Was fast and faultless staff guided you through the hotels facilities and restaurants within the hotel . Staff were most helpful even phoning our room 30 mins after we checked in to make sure the room was to our satisfaction, we had a problem with working the safe they sent up a technician who replaced the batteries problem solved. The view from our room was breathtaking uninterrupted ocean scenery. We were on floor 9 I emailed the hotel if we could have a sea view and quiet room as well They delivered on everything I had requested. Top Marks 10 out of 10. Restaurants You will never be deprived of quality in this hotel you are spoilt for choice . They have a main restaurant and 4 speciality restaurants to choose from. My wife is a very picky eater but she always found something to eat each day. Breakfasts was the best I have ever seen in any hotels we have ever stayed in an array of hot or continental choices each morning. Lunch and dinner were the same plenty of choice and a carvery cut to your requirements every day. there is always snacks available 24/7 in the sports bar. So to top off if you like my wife are a picky eater you will be spoilt for choice and I would challenge anyone to say that you would not find something to eat due to the outstanding array on offer at all the restaurants in this hotels. All the staff who worked within all the dining areas from the snacks and grill by the poolside were very friendly and attentive . Entertainment We only missed a couple of nights of that evening shows but those we did see were very entertaining and the animation team worked very hard around the main pool every day.There were always games from the active ones like water polo to the more gentle ones like yoga. Rooms Very airy and clean met our every requirements plenty of storage , one of the comfiests beds I have ever slept in, Plenty of socket plugs and a free safe to use for the duration of your holiday So if you are looking for a hotel that's aim is to make your holidays a most memorable experience please don't overlook this one . One of the best hotels we have stayed at. From the hotel itself and the staff who work there they do the Rui chain of hotels very proud. I recommend this hotel to anyone that is thinking of traveling to mexico please look at this hotel you wont be dissapointed. They also hold small weddings in the grounds of the hotel which is a nice thing to see. Summing Up Nice hotel , Cleaning standards impeccable, And one of the most friendly staff you will find . My advice if you look and if you book you will not regret it . Oh forgot to mention the sun very hot, but plenty of shades by the pools.

Such a great vacation!

We just finished our 5 day vacation and are ready to make another reservation. Loved this resort! People are so accommodating and do everything to make your stay the best. I was skeptical after reading the reviews but pleasantly surprised after staying here. I guess some people just have difficulty with finding the positive about things. The resort deco is a bit Miami Vice looking but how much how much time do you really send in the room? Beach is a bit rocky but they keep it well maintained and there is also another stretch of sandy beach toward the adult side. Cocktails are flowing all day long so be careful! We had a bit too much of a good time the first day...and the second! Waiters make the rounds on the beach and pool every 15-20 minutes so there is no need to get up. A tip is not required but it does go a long way with all of your servers both at the bar and restaurants. Food at the buffet is good and they have a different theme every night. The specialty restaurants-are first come first serve and it is best to get there right at 6:30 because they fill up fast. They have special shows each night at the theater and a bus that takes you to a local disco on Wednesday. There are so many great things about this place! Big thanks to Jose our bartender who came in each day with a list of drinks to accommodate an allergy my companion had, Marlene at breakfast who always had a table ready for us and our beac waiter who kept us comfortable the whole stay.

You never know what to expect with all-inclusive, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel decor was lovely in it's hues of lavender, purples, silver and greens. The staff was friendly and always had a smile. The front desk clerk, Fabiola was amazing. She hooked us up with a free upgrade that included a corner suite with a patio that was large enough to hold a small party. Now the food - it was pretty damn good. We ate at Tamales and Krsytals for dinner, both very good. The buffet was full of choices and also very tasty. All in all we would stay at Riu Palace Peninsula again!

Just wonderful

Was there the week of April 9th 2018. This Resort is beautiful, big, decorated beautifully,clean, the employees are friendly professional and they are always cleaning, organizing, interacting with quests or something there is no idleness in this establishment. The rooms are big the balconies are huge. The Buffet is A+ every night there's a different variety and plenty of it from the appetizers, soup, spreads, main course, dessert etc. and the presentation was excellent. Thet have a staff of chefs and they injure their craft. The beach is big sand clean white. the pool activities great and pools all big & clean with a temperature just right. This establishment work hard towards customer satisfaction. Big shout out to Jorge who cater to your every need on the beach, bring us drinks answering questions or helping us with setting up a umbrella. He was there everyday with a smile. Why try the rest Rio Peninsula is the best!
