Sister Vacation
Jessica W,

My sisters and I (three of us) stayed at the Palace Peninsula in the first week of October. This was my sisters first time at an all inclusive resort, and they loved every minute of it (as did I)!! HUGE shout out to the two lovely gentlemen working our table for the buffet. We saw them every day for almost every meal, and they were so kind to us the entire time! The food, as you can expect, was typical all inclusive - nothing to really write home about but also satisfying! We did try some restaurants - the steak house, the Italian restaurant and the Japanese restaurant. The steak house was decent, but if we went back we would probably just stick to the buffet - consistent and doesn't disappoint. Our trip was absolutely wonderful, and we couldn't have asked for friendlier staff. Cleanliness was amazing. Absolutely no complaints!

Best hotel I've stayed in 100%

This hotel I give 150% . The hotel is highly rated, the staff are very nurturing, caring, kind, polite and a joy to be around. We had a ocean view room with a Jacuzzi it was an absolutely beautiful room. The food was so lovely, so much to pick from, the cleanliness and hygiene was immaculate. I myself is the most fussy person your ever meet and have been told I have OCD but let me tell you, you could eat OFF this hotel's floor. I will without a doubt definately be returning to this hotel. Thank you to all the staff that we have had contact with it was a pleasure sharing my 7 nights with you all. A class holiday....

Great hotel

Just started our stay at this hotel we arrived on the 17th of October, our room is lovely so is the beach and pool. But our only let down was as we came back to the room after a day out we found that our mini bar was not refilled. This was a little bit disappointing as we had to ring to get our drinks we hope this does not continue yours sincerely the Appleby's

Fabulous hotel

If you are without children the adult villas are a must. Very clean facility, rooms were roomy and comfortable. Bartenders were amazing. Food is to be exoected - same as cruises but the Steak House was fantastic. Fridge, bar stocked daily. A family of 4 could get in the shower at the same time! Lots of entertainment nightly and the pools were amazing. We spent time on the beach as well. The foam party was a lot of fun. Zero complaints! Would definitely recommend!

I was at this resort for a long weekend with friends. The rooms are clean ,neat ,and the staff does an excellent job keeping it that way. This hotel can be seen from everywhere in the Cancun area . You need to return to the main lobby to access the elevator for each towers on either side . The hotel is near the ferry to island mujeres. The hotel has a beach and the neighboring hotel is also the riu caribe . There is a larger beach area there . There are multiple pools and plenty of bars. The food was very good . The Buffet was also good breakfast, lunch ,and dinner. I did eat at some of the restaurants and found some to be well done and some missed there mark. I did enjoy this hotel. I
