Phenomenal Service
httraveler2016, Chicago, Illinois

This was the 2nd time my husband I visited the RIU Palace Riviera Maya Resort. The service was phenomenal from the receptionists,chefs,dining hall waiters (Carlos),pool waiter (Victor) and housekeeper (Pablo) - they made us feel like royalty. They go above and beyond. My husband caught a mahi mahi and the chefs at Chilis made a beautiful plated presentation of the fish and ceviche. Victor, pool waiter, was always at our service asking if "Todas bien?" ("Everything good") and if we ran out of cocktails he was quick to get us refills. The entertainment staff was a lot of fun and high energy. We highly recommend this resort! More>

Honeymoon!

This was our first time to Mexico and it won't be our last! When we arrived, check in took 5 mins and we were given a welcome drink and told we had been upgraded! Our room was so clean, lovely and spacious with a lovely view. We had a mini fridge stocked full of drinks as well as optics, which was all topped up every couple of days. The maid kept our room so clean and the various towel animals were brilliant! The pool was massive and I loved the half sunken sunbeds, the pool could have been cleaner and there was a few tiles missing but it wasn't horrendous! The pool bar was brilliant along with the staff, they were so friendly and so quick with the drinks! You didn't have to move from your sunbed to get a drink if you didn't want to as the staff would walk round asking what drink you would like. The beach was stunning and I'm not a beach person and the sea was crystal clear. The food here was lovely! The buffet had plenty to choose from and they always switched up what meats were on offer etch. We also tried the Mexican, Brazilian and Steakhouse and they were all amazing! We mainly had lunch at Chilli's and again the food was great. I did think they could have more going on in the evenings but that's just my opinion. None of the staff here could do enough for you, we had a brilliant honeymoon that we'll remember forever :) More>

Fantastic in Every Way

The hotel is beautiful, the staff are all so friendly and helpful and they make the experience special for every person that comes here. The food is amazing, all the resteraunts are great and the variety means there's something of great quality for everyone. The staff work tirelessly and are always there to fetch you a drink or help in any way they can and they don't expect anything for it. It's a great place, run really well and please just ignore any bad reviews of this place as despite the best efforts some people just can't be pleased. This is without doubt the best all inclusive hotel we've ever been and will be back with the old folks. We'll done to the bar/resteraunt staff, management, entertainment team, maintenance, cleaners and every team who work there. You do a great job! More>

Hotel is very elegant and soooo big..we were at the Riu Yucatan & got upgraded. We loved the yucatan but thought why not.. A different type of atmosphere..but we liked it...real named brand alcohol in room..room service and voffee machine๐Ÿ‘.

Amazing wedding/holiday

Visited this hotel in November 2014 to get married. It was so amazing we returned in November 2015 and plan to go back as soon as possible. The hotel is in a fantastic location, right on the beach and within easy walking distance to playa del carmen. The food at the hotel is really excellent, far better than the usual all inclusive offerings. Service is also second to none. The hotel has a lovely traditional feel, it has bags of character and is far superior to any of the other hotels in the area. I really can't fault this hotel and can not wait to return. More>
