Riu Palace did an excellent job at making us feel safe during these unprecedented times. They had the resort open at 30% capacity, staff wore masks properly at all times, hand sanitation stalls located throughout the resort and disinfectant mats used a well. The resort had most amenities open while following regulations, the Mexico show was fun to watch and the thing I loved the most was the service! Had top notch service at all times, their staff was very friendly and attentive. I did rate sleep a bit lower only because some of the guest were extremely loud in early mornings (3-4am) and I wasn’t sure if the hotel was giving them a warning to quiet down. Aside from that, it was good. Buffet was open with of course precautions and food was decent or good for a buffet. The view was spectacular and the alcoholic beverages well served. We had a blast and the to other couples that went with us are already planning to go back soon.

We had an amazing vacation as a family at the RIU Palace. We were assigned rooms right up next the water. Our kids loved making friends with the RIU activities staff! The pools were wonderful, food great, and the relaxation was awesome. Thank you to all the staff that made our stay wonderful.

Had another great trip here. This is our 4th time staying at this resort. We’ve stayed at other resorts and this one is by far our favorite. Best value that we’ve found. Food, drinks, amenities, location.....all superior. Every Riu palace we’ve stayed at has been superb.

I booked reservations through the Riu Website because it said that transportation fees were included. When I inquired about the transportation, I was informed that since I booked my trip three days prior to my arrival that transportation to the hotel and to the airport were not included. I was very disappointed that there were no alternatives rather than paying $70 one way for a shuttle. I was told that I had to make the transportation reservations four days in advance and since I booked the trip three days in advance there would be no accommodations at all.

Had a great time at the RIU! Was a good mix of relaxation, beauty, and just enough party. You can really get anything you want out of stay there. One day we ended up in the Adult Pool pretty much all afternoon and drank way too many Don Julio Margaritas, shots, and Dos Equis. The vibe was chill and then all of a sudden we’re talking to two other couples, and group of single ladies playing dominoes and the hours just flew by. Next day, we slept in, relaxed made our way to Marina. It was great day for just us after that. That was pretty much the theme... a little of this a little that. I’m not a big food critic, but I thought it was excellent. Getting into the nice restaurants for dinners took some strategic planning, but it was more about us not wanting to be on a schedule more than anything. The service was great. We will be back for sure.
