Riu Palace Peninsula Cancun

The cappuccino and espresso were great from the Lobby coffee shop. Unfortunately, they didn't open until 10 a.m.! Hotel is very clean and close to shopping malls, casinos, bars and restaurants. It's only $1 U.S. to catch a bus to any of these. Buffet was great with lots of variety for everyone. The specialty restaurants were ok but nothing special.

The strong points
Good value for my money!

The weak points
I would have liked a more private bathroom/shower in our hotel room. Most nights the entertainment wasn't very good, especially the Monday night singer! (sorry but true)

Riu Palace Peninsula Cancun

Buffet was excellent. It had something for everyone. I was disappointed the Japanese restaurant wasn't the kind that they cook in front of you. The Steakhouse was very good but the other specialty restaurants were just ok. The staff here were very nice and helpful. The poolside grill was very good but closed at 2 p.m. I would have liked them to open an hour earlier and later. Make sure you book all your excursions with someone from the hotel. The Sunwing rep gave us a great deal on the dolphin swim.

The strong points
Hotel is situated in a great spot. You can catch a red bus for only $1 USD to many shopping malls, restaurants, flea markets, casinos, bars, aquarium, etc.

The weak points
It seems every resort we go to have the bathrooms located too far from the pool. The nightly entertainment was not very good compared to other Riu hotels. The bathroom area is not very private as you walk out of the shower into the bed area.

Riu Palace Peninsula

Hotel was nice and clean. Buffet was very good with lots of different items for everyone. Specialty restaurants were good but not excellent. The best one was the Steakhouse. I liked that there were not any lineups to get in any of the restaurants. Restaurant service was excellent. Lobby coffee shop had excellent cappuccino and espresso but the only problem was that it didn't open until 10 a.m. The poolside grill was excellent and I would have liked them to stay open past 2 p.m. The infinity pool was not heated but the activity and swim up bar pools were.

The strong points
Hotel was close to all shopping. You can hop on a bus for $1 USD and go to many malls, flea markets, aquarium, bars and restaurants.

The weak points
The nightly entertainment was not very good compared to other Riu's we have been to in Jamaica, Dominican Republic or Costa Rica. The shower and vanity are not private. There should be a wall separating the beds from the vanity/shower.

The best

The staff are exceptional the food was delicious the pools , bars and some of thee entertainment was great. The only problem we had our room was above the stage and the musi was very loud but when asked to be moved we were the next day.
