Resort Insights

“My boyfriend and I spent hours researching different all inclusive resorts to stay at in Mexico, and finally decided on Riu Palace. I was nervous that we would end up picking the wrong one, but we couldn’t be happier with our stay there! The hotel grounds were immaculate, and the room we stayed in was very clean and modern looking. We are both in our 30’s and were worried it would either have a bunch of loud college students or families with young kids, but it was very quiet and relaxing no matter where you spent your day. They had plenty of restaurants to choose from as well and the food was all good. We couldn’t say more good things about this resort and would happily stay there again during our next trip to Mexico!” – Amanda K. 4/20

“Beautifully kept grounds, excellent service, very friendly, helpful, and fun staff. Traveled with parents and kids (2.5 and 1.5), there was something to do for everyone. Also, ideal location if you want to leave the resort, Playa Del Carmen shopping is just a mile away. I recommend. 👍” – Anastasia M. 3/20

“The best description we could come up with was magical! The Staff was friendly and helpful. While we did many things outside of the resort, we could have just easily stayed on the property for the entire week and been happy.” – B Pritch 10/18
