    A very VERY happy anniversary

    On our arrival at this wonderful resort check-in was completed effortlessly and in record time. First impressions from the very impressive reception area were that this would be great way to spend our 5th wedding anniversary and we were not wrong. Our room was on the top floor due to the generosity of the hotel upgrading us to a partial sea view. The room itself was spacious, the cleanliness superb. The mini bar was constantly stocked, the spirits a great touch.....not to mention the plentiful amount of champagne delivered to our room. At the pool we spent most of our time relaxing at the Mezcal bar where the extremely attentive staff kept the refreshments topped up all day remembering whatever your drink of choice was be it a soft drink or cocktail. The food in the buffet restaurant was always fresh with plenty of choice and the waiters there were again extremely attentive to any needs. We only went on one excursion, across to the Isla Mujeres which can only be described as a paradise island. Once there we navigated the island in our rented golf buggy seeing plenty of iguanas on our journey. Our plan to relax our way through 10 days of sunshine for our anniversary was a complete success thanks to the amazing staff and the fantastic Riu Palace Costa Mujeres. My only regret is that it has taken me this long to leave a much deserved review thanking everyone linked to this hotel for making our first trip to Mexico a very memorable one. We were so impressed that that we have just yesterday booked to return for our 6th anniversary at the end of May only this time for a few extra nights. We look forward to making the Palace our home for another 14 nights. Thank you Riu Palace Costa Mujeres!!!

    Great Way to Bring in the New Year!

    This was our second time at this location! We are planning on returning for New Year's 2021! The food was amazing! Service was fabulous! Entertainment was outstanding! We loved volleyball in the pool every morning! Our favorite food service staff were Yenny and Alfredo! Our favorite bartender was Roger at the piano bar! The piano guy was awesome! He played our favorite songs every night! Arturo the supervisor was one of our favorites too! Because of the connections we made with numerous staff members, we will like they are family and that's what brings us back!

    Excellent property, great amenities, accommodating staff - great experience

    We stayed at the resort over the New Year and enjoyed it very much. The resort is new and the rooms are spotless. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing with great variety. The buffet is all you need to satisfy any picky eater. The beach and the pools have plenty of loungers and shades. The shore line is beautiful with white sand and palm trees. Kids any age can enjoy the water slides.

    Not Impressed

    2nd day here, We've walked out of the a la carte restaurants. Never have i ever saw buffets within a la cartes. Food is always served cold.salmon is sitting on a tray above the caprese salad dripping into it. Lots of foods mixing with other foods in the buffet, big no no. We very much enjoy Italian food , and the Roma was the most dissatisfying food I've ever tried.I havent had a hot dish yet. Service is good . The grounds are amazing. Next time i will save 1000 just fo to cuba.

    Dorota planned the most amazing stay at Riu Costa Mujeres for us!

    Dorota Danko from Apple Vacations planned a trip for our big group of 15 people over Thanksgiving break. We had the most amazing time, with beautiful rooms, great views, fun activities and delicious food. The entertainment team did a killer job keeping all of us busy throughout our time we spent within the resort, thank you Omar (the assistant manager of the entertainment team) for doing a great job and creating amazing experiences! A+ experience and Dorota was a huge part of the success of our trip! Very professional and knows exactly what she is doing. If you want a no hassle, worry free, fun and luxurious trip - contact Dorota for your next vacation!
