Visited Riu Palace Peninsula in Jan. 2017 after much research and reading many reviews. We were so pleased to see the immaculate hotel and grounds; someone was always cleaning to ensure the atmosphere was clean, fresh, and inviting. The service throughout the hotel, restaurants, and Villa bar were excellent. With this being our initial experience we were SOOOOO disappointed to...

Our travel agent really sold us on how good a value this place would be, so looking to do a last minute trip we went with it. I'm going to file this under "you get what you pay for." As an "all inclusive" it's all about mass produced food and "well liquor." Couldn't get a Corona or a Modelo anywhere....

Nice facility and location. Food was like a cruise ship buffet. The 'free drinks' were, for the most part, worth what I paid for them. Meaning, they weren't very good. If I'd ordered them at a bar, I'd have sent them back. They did have a descent Malbec, you have to ask for it. The view and water are beautiful....

This is a great place to stay if you want everything included - however, I would also suggest to make arrangements to do some things during the day such as snorkel, hike, etc. Also, make sure to make dinner reservations at the restaurants the day you get there for your entire stay or you probably won't be able to eat...

We travelled to Cancun as a couple in January 2017 for a 7 night stay at Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. This was my first time to Mexico and my first time staying at an all inclusive resort and it exceeded all of my expectations. We stayed in the Adults Only Villas which...

We stayed for a week in April '16 in a corner jacuzzi suite. Room and view were absolutely amazing- could spot see turtles swimming by. The buffet was surprisingly good and had a little bit of everything. Waiters would have a new drink ready before you were finished with the first and were prompt to remove empty plates. Be wary...

Just returned from a 2 week stay over New Year. The hotel is very nice and the food in the buffet is really good and there is plenty of choice. New Year's eve was exceptionally good. The themed restaurants we tried were very mediocre so, although it is nice to be waited on, heed the advice of many reviewers and...

Traveled with the family in August, 2016, had a great time, and there was something for everyone to love. At night, our teenage daughter was very entertained while doing Karaoke at the Sports Bar while we played pool there. The Saturday night show (at the stage area of the resort) was amazing, with an awesome band, dancers, and vocalists who...
