    Riu Palace Costa Mujeres Trip

    Awesome!! Had a blast. This is an awesome resort to stay at, staff was amazing as well as the food. we will definetely be back!! if I had one concern it would be there is no seperation between the room and bath/shower so if you have kids its a little different but a small problem to this resort. two barside pools with 3 or 4 others. lots of activities throughout the day, beach is kept clean etc etc

    RIU is back, Bigger and Better than ever

    This hotel has to be the best hotel i've ever had the pleasure of staying in. From the moment we arrived to the sec we left we were treat to the best customer service i've ever come across. The place is spotlessly clean, the food is fantastic and the staff are the most friendliest people i've ever come across. A special thank you to Roger who works behind the cocktail bar and to Daniel from Krystal who both go the extra mile to mack sure your stay is the best. The rooms in the hotel are beautifully decorated and the view from ours was fantastic with a view of Cancun and the sea. Loads of pools to chose from plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. Just waiting for the new adults only to open next door and I will be there.

    First time here

    This hotel has great customer service, the people that work there are very attentive and friendly. It is clean, and very nicely decorated. I do feel they should have a valet service, and at least greet you with a welcome drink. I did not experience that. The pool area was clean. I did feel that they lacked in the music in the swim up bar. The location is beautiful but there are alot of mosquitos. The area is developing so it is ok. The food was good, the drinks were good too. The beach was clean. Improvements i would recommend is the way they greet you, music in the pool area, and beach activities.
