    The property is gorgeous. The staff amazing and the food is typical for Riu. I think the food is about the same at the buffets as the other Rius. Maybe a few exceptions. The steak house is a must. Steak and lobster so so good....More

    Everything was great! Book it and you won't regret! Food was amazing. People work so hard to keep the place clean. Tip is appreciated and goes a long way. They need more shows at night. Beach is beautiful as well.

    Has anyone had experience with hiring a driver just for like a half day trip to the Tulum ruins? We don't really want to bother with driving.

    Hi, the transfer time from Cancun airport to RPM is about 1 hour and imagine you would have to arrange your own private transfer at the airport.....or you can arrange this prior to arriving and book a transfer online.

    Hi All, Staying at RPM in August, just wanted to know, is it just at lunch time that you can eat at the other 5 Riu hotels?

    Response from dan222222 | Reviewed this property |
    the food and the service is the best at the palace so it is unlikely that you'd want to eat anywhere else. However, we were told that we just couldn't eat dinner anywhere else.
