Our Opinion

An outstanding hotel to visit when you're in Cancun. Compared to the other resorts, the Riu Palace Peninsula is a bit larger than other resorts that you would find along the resort zone. Great a la carte and buffet items to choose from here. The variety of food here is incredible. It can be guaranteed that you'll never experience the same thing twice when dining in this restaurant. Compared to most other all-inclusive resorts, the quality of food here is good. The resort grounds are always clean and well-maintained. While majority of rooms are pretty good, the special suites have a tendency to be cramped. They might offer extra perks such as an in-suite jacuzzi. However, the size of the resort makes it seem like it's The pools are what this resort is notable for. Regardless whatever age you are, there is a pool atmosphere here that is appropriate for you. While the staff remain attentive and try their best to accomodate to your needs, be advised that the check-in process does get relatively lengthy.

Riu Palace Peninsula

Riu Palace Peninsula is located next to the Riu Caribe on a dazzling stretch of white sand beach, framed by tropical vegetation and crystal clear turquoise water. This new Riu Palace luxury resort features six specialty restaurants with wonderful cuisine ranging from Japanese to Italian to Mexican, seven bars, water sports, two freshwater pools (one heated in the winter and the second with a Jacuzzi and swim-up bar) daily entertainment and an on-site Mayan ruin discovered during the hotel construction.
The spacious and luxurious guestrooms include predominantly white décor with vibrant accents as well as signature RIU amenities, including the famous Riu liquor dispenser. Soak in hydro massage tubs large enough for two and admire the spectacular views from your private balcony. Revel in a variety of land and water sports as well as fun activities. The RiuLand Kids Club will keep children entertained with supervised games, while the new RiuArt program will help you discover your inner artist. For an extra treat, indulge in pampering treatments at the Renova Spa. 
Location: Beachfront in Cancun's hotel zone, 10 min to downtown, 45 min from the airport.

    Good food!

    This hotel has been refurbished to a 'modern' taste - very lime & purple! It is very sparkly & garish in places & unfortunately the layout means that excess noise is an issue in the main areas. On... Read Full Review
