    Very clean resort. The staff couldn’t have been better. The view of the crystal blue water will keep me coming back. Make sure you go over to the island. I would go back in a heartbeat if I didn’t have to work.

    Family Trip to Hotel Riu Palace Costa Mujeres in May 2019. The hotel was amazing, we stayed in a swim out suite which was perfect, food was some of the best we have had. The grounds are beautiful, pools are spacious and well taken care of. The only item I would note is that they need a boardwalk of some type down to the beach, the walk in the deep sand down the hill and back up was challenging. Would return in a heart beat!

    Fantastic hotel for a wonderful holiday

    We are currently on our last day at the hotel, after a fabulous two week stay. We booked the holiday exceptionally late notice, after our hour operator collapsed the day we were due to fly-so were limited on choice for destinations leaving from the departure airport we were already staying over at. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. Our son is only 20 months old and he has been made such a fuss of, his particular favourites being Brenda in the piano bar/cafe, and Calu the turtle from the kids entertainment-however all the pool bar staff and so on always had a high five and a smile for him and made him feel special. The hotel was always perfectly clean, our room well attended and fully stocked minibar. The food in the restaurant was always plentiful in choice, hot, and well presented. We didn’t venture into any of the a la carte restaurants as they didn’t open until 6.30pm and by then our son was keen for his dinner-so the buffet was more convenient for us. While we spent most time by the pool on the bar with the grill, we also visited the beach which was well kept, regularly cleaned and served by the bar, and the children’s pool with water slides between the two Riu hotels. Our only complaint on this would be that the access is stairs which isn’t easy with a pushchair, and that there are no toilets or drinks served here. However the pool itself is fantastic for little ones, with shallow water and an assortment of slides. We have had a perfect family holiday and will definitely be returning to another Riu palace hotel for our next holiday.

    Great Vacation!!!

    The only they didn't think through straight was the bathroom. If you are with a family, you have to leave the room so that people can take a shower without someone seeing them bathe in the shower and you have to go in the bathroom to get dressed. The rooms are not made for families, they were meant for couples only. Besides the room situation, this is a great hotel for families, you will not regret staying at this hotel.
