    Nice Resort

    Had a good trip. Washrooms are far apart at resort. Rooms nice. Could use more waiters at pools. No seaweed while there but ocean was wavy. A La Cartes hit and miss. Krystal the best. Buffet was good. Pepes by the pools could have been better.

    Nice but noisy.

    First impressions, ultra modern decor in reception, reminded us of a refitted hair salon, reception staff were welcoming and helpful, as we have a Riu members card we were upgraded to a swim up room which was excellent. Moving on to the hotel facilities, there were 5 pools to choose from, so no problem there, also there was the use of the water park next door at the Dunamar, a 5 min walk away, which my wife loved. The dining experience wasn't the best, the food was never hot, just luke warm, would have thought that a company like Riu who in our opinion go to a lot of trouble to make your stay an enjoyable one would have the facilities to do this ! Our other main gripe was the design of the bar and restaurant buildings, especially the main bar, all concrete and glass, the slightest noise was amplified tenfold, no soft furnishings or wood to absorb the noise, for example like the Riu Vallarta, where we have been twice, it was so noisy sometimes it was difficult to hold a conversation, and the hotel was only 50% full. After saying all that we had a lovely holiday and would continue to use Riu hotels.

    A little out of the way, but a great choice for whatever your looking for

    We booked riu palace costa mujeres as a last minute surprise trip. We were very impressed. After a long and somewhat sketchy trip from the airport, our check in couldn't be easier or quicker. No timeshare b.s. or up sales of any kind. We had a lower level room with the private swimout pool. Extremely quiet and private(at least until the shows kicked in at night). the resort is brand new and modern and it's easy to see that costa mujeres is the new area to build as we couldn't even count the number of resorts being built. The food was among the best in our dozens of times visiting Mexico. The buffet was amazing as were the individual restaurants. They offered lobster at the steak house which was great. No pants/reservations were required when we went also. I know it's off season but that was great. The servers tended to be unbelievably friendly and willing to please. The drinks were more hit than miss but overall very good. Not the best but a solid 7 out of 10. The bartenders again, were amazing. The overall vibe is what you want to make of it, there are quiet areas and crazy foam party areas and everything in between. There is always something going on and things to do. The beach is wonderful but the water was a bit rougher than I'm used too. We would definitely like to go back in the future. The food and the employees are amongst the best in mexico
