The resort was great as expected, but what surprised me pleasantly was the attitudes of the staffs and quality of food at the resort. It was my first time in Mexico so I certainly had no idea what to expect, but Viceroy's on-site dining was superb.

My wife and I love our two boys, but we needed a break! This proved to be the perfect place. The staff are all so friendly and helpful and want you to relax and enjoy which is exactly what we did. The food was fantastic...every meal! We stayed in a premium villa and it was amazing...the plunge pool, the outdoor...

I cannot imagine a better place to vacation! We loved absolutely everything about our stay! All of the "stuff" (room, overall resort, spa, pool, exercise room, gift shop, food, etc.) was outstanding, but the best part was the people. The staff of the Viceroy Riviera Maya is beyond comparison. They were warm and attentive and made us feel like the...

The jungle setting of this small luxury beach resort is ideal. You have enormous very private rooms with large outdoor plunge pool and chaise lounge. There are spider monkey families in the trees and lots of birds and hardly a pesky insect to be found. You could comfortably enjoy all your meals in your suite since although everything is pricy,...

We returned home Saturday after spending a perfect honeymoon at the Viceroy. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of by the wonderful staff there. The room and patio were beautiful and kept to impeccable standards. The patio had a large Plunge pool, beautiful daybed as well as deck with lounge chairs. The outdoor shower felt like heaven...

Excellent quiet couples resort in a beautiful natural setting with individual villas, built around water features, palm trees, in a natural setting. Very private, excellent for couples! The food at the restaurants is amazing. Great service. Friendly staff. One day we saw monkeys swinging from the trees and roof tops of the hotel. We really felt in nature! Highly recommended!...

There is just no comparison with previous hotels we stayed. This is the TOP of the TOP! I and my husband have been to Riviera Maya a few times before. We always aimed for relaxing holidays, excellent service but before, we got "ok" resorts, but with a lot of people, not relaxing, unfortunately. Luckily this time we improved a lot,...

“The premium villa was very spacious and we felt as though we had complete privacy.”
Mark349, 27 Apr 2017 | Read review
“I can't imagine a bad room, but I enjoy privacy so would recommend a room in the middle (away from the beach and the lobby).”
shwall07, 25 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Premium Villa really private and felt like we were in the jungle. Ocean View rooms closer to beach but seemed less private.”
Boomer_from_Boulder, 23 Apr 2017 | Read review
“The villas near the reception and along the upper side are more private than those in the area of the restaurants or in front of the beach”
