Take me back to riu palace peninsula ASAP please

I just took my first trip alone, ever. I couldn't have picked a better choice! Everything was what I wanted and more. The breakfast buffet is the best meal. They serve lunch by the pool which is nice and convenient if you don't want to move (like me). The dinner buffet is okay but Everything seemed greasy and not warm. It is more fun to go into the city and eat anyway. You must try out all the different taco stands! The pool is amazing and so is the beach. You have a drink waiter out there no matter where you sit. The beach is perfect for long walks, I would suggest going east as it is a very beautiful and educational walk. You will run into a huge area where locals hang out on the beach and it is amazing to watch them and their culture. Also a little flea market and restaurants. This is the only shopping or dining within walking distance- otherwise you must take the bus but it's only &1. The only issue I encountered was my ceiling started leaking very early one morning because the room above me left their tub on all night. They fixed it right away. The staff was incredible from the front desk to the maids to the wait staff to the fitness staff to the spa staff and mostly the entertainment staff. Get to know Juan and Omar- you won't be sorry you did.

If you want to eat somewhere else, take a $1 bus into town and try the taco stands! They are cheap and delicious and fun.

Riu Peninsula

The view from our 16th floor room was extraordinaire, The room is nice, just personaly don't like the angular furniture, sort of 70's retro and gray colors in all the room, make it a little depressing in spite of the purple contrast. The service of some of the staff members at the lobby wasn't good, but some others were great. They need more management to ensure everybody has the right attitude. I've went to visit the property Palace Las Americas, 3km (2miles from there and the staff attitude was superb. The pools are very nice, with exception of the yellow bar (wet bar) ,which looks disgustingly yellow from the upper rooms. I guess some people like to bath in that broth. The food was very good, but not as good as in other Rius. The worst part here is that in order to make a reservation for a speciality restaurant you have to book it 2 days in advance, while in other RIUs is one day in advance and in other hotels chains, if they have room, you can make it the same day. Still the hotel and the view is great, the night shows were pretty bad compared to other Rius in Playa del Carmen, Jamaica, etc. But next time in Cancun I will staty in the Riu Palace Las Americas, way better, this looks like a colonial English plantation building. Last thing, the parking lot is pretty small for the size of the building.

If your prefer to dine outside, there are very good restaurants 3Km away, like Puerto Madero (steak house); Lorenzillo's (lobster house) pricey but nice; and also nigth life is nearby.

Great Stay

Stayed April 7-13, weather was perfect! The grounds are great and $1 bus ride to all major clubs for those who like to party! Food was good, a lot of variety buffet or sit down. The room takes a little to get use to with tub in middle of floor. We had to contact front desk to have room cleaned since room was't done when we came up from a day of activities at 4pm. Staff was always checking in with us for drinks or walking in hall, etc. I would recommend for couples

Pretty sweet if what u want is to lay by the pool/beach and then eat good food. The buffets were actually super good. Super clean. Super new hotel. Super expensive.

1st time Cancun visitor

My sister and I were here for my Birthday! The staff and accommodations were exceptional. As a surprise I even got a cake at dinner and a small bottle of Tequila arrived in my room. RIU had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in at a Hotel. The only thing I would have changed would be the buffet meals for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. It seemed that it was the same thing everyday. We also visited the other restaurants and the food was very good.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Do Not go to the Market 28 Mall. They are very high priced and will tell you not to shop the local stores. Just keep walking 4 blocks from bus stop until you actually get to the Market 28 area of over 300 stores.
