Wonderful place

My wife and I had 2 glorious weeks at the Peninsula, from the very quick check in with free upgrade to Superior sea view due to my Riu club class card, all the way to a lovely farewell drink in the huge palatial lobby. The hotel is very smart, clean and modern, the rooms are absolutely gorgeous, with massive walk in rainfall showers and a jacuzzi bath strangely next to the big comfy bed. All the staff go way out of their way to make your stay as great as possible, they really do! The Thomson rep helped us with so many things we needed to know and went the extra mile to help everyone that needed his advice and guidance. This hotel is more than worth the money, the food,drink, staff and location was more than 10 out of 10 in our opinion, we will be back!

This was our second year at the Riu Peninsula in Cancun. We had such a great time last year we didn't even consider going anywhere else when planning our vacation for 2017. It is a very nice resort with great food, great beach and great bar and food service. Just make sure you leave a light on when you go to bed. There is a bathtub in the middle of the room. It is awkwardly placed!! My husband fell over the tub in the middle of the night trying to get back in bed after going to the restroom. He lost 2 teeth, dislocated a rib and had scrapes up and down his body. He ended up spending the entire week going back and forth to the dentist. The resort did direct us to a good dentist but never once checked in to see how my husband was doing. I was very disappointed and it appeared no one cared that this terrible thing had happened. The accident happened on the 1st night of our 7 night stay. There was plenty of opportunity for a follow up. The front desk asked for our room number when we asked for a recommendation for a dentist. They were aware and knew who we were and what room we were in.

Great Hotel

Visited this hotel last year. Hard to fault this hotel! Room was amazing with a lovely view. Service by staff was great and always ensured you were happy, whether it was inside the hotel or out on poolside. You would never have to go searching for a member of staff. The private beach leading out of the hotel was beautiful, and exclusive to hotel guests only. Everything you needed and wanted was in the complex. Great bar on the beach with hammocks hung from the trees which was so relaxing with such an amazing view. There was a beach party one night which was really fun! Free activities on offer, unfortunately we were too jet lagged to do anything so I would possibly recommend more than 1 week in order to get over the tiredness and take advantage of free activities. Food was amazing, 7 different restaurants in the hotel available, all serving various cuisines, our favourite was the steakhouse. Went out to coco bongo - expensive but highly recommend - one of the best nights. The hotel also had photographers on site every day taking pictures of people with sombrero's etc on themed nights and of whoever requested pictures. I personally loved this, and at the end of the holiday you view all the pictures taken of you throughout your stay and have the option to purchase pictures individually or all on a cd. Regrettably, due to the price we did not purchase any pictures. If we were to go back i would definitely purchase at least 1 photo. Over all, amazing holiday.
