"Fantastic! This place is the perfect spot for those who want a GREAT experience. The Riu is immaculate and the staff is always around to make sure it stays that way. If you're looking for a hotel that's easy to get to and is easy to maneuver from for a day trip or just to stay poolside for your entire stay, you won't be disappointed. The food is above average for an all-inclusive but there's always something to eat if wanted. I liked the fact that room service was included (a bit limited) as well as WI-FI and we were able to visit,stay and eat at, the other Riu's while in Cancun. I would highly recommend the Palace Peninsula."

"Awesome place. Very good service and nice staff. The best service we had out of the whole trip was in the Italian Restaurant if your glass of wine or beverage was even remotely looking empty it was topped off immediately without question, awesome food in there as well no reservation needed there which is a plus. The beach is rocky but I thought that it added some character and charm to it, I did not mind it at all. The ocean is very calm with little waves which I also thought was very nice not getting beat up by waves. The room service and cleaning people were spot on every time. Super clean, super nice. 100% Satisfied :)"

"BEST RESORT IN CANCUN!!! There is absolutely nothing bad I can say about the Riu Palace Peninsula. My fiance and I just returned from our trip and we can't stop thinking about it. This is easily one of the top hotels in Cancun. From the minute we stepped out of the airport shuttle, this place never stopped amazing us. I was trying to decide between either the Riu Palace Peninsula or Riu Las Americas. The plus side of Riu Las Americas is that its right next to all the night life. The plus side of Riu Palace Peninsula is literally everything else! This is a no decision if you need to decide between the two. You get the privacy feeling of being at a resort, but you are still arms length away from all the activities and fun Cancun has to offer. Perks: ~BRAND NEW! It just opened less than a year ago so everything is new ~Extremely modern look and feel ~5 or 6 themed restaurants (they are included in your all-inclusive price, but you need to book them in advance once you check in) ~massive buffet set-ups for breakfast, lunch, dinner ~You can access all the Riu hotels (Riu Caribe is right next door) ~5 pools and huge outdoor area on the peninsula makes you feel like you are at a quiet peaceful resort even when the hotel is completely booked (Riu Caribe next door has 2 pools and they get filled and cramped quickly) ~In-room waterfall shower ~In-room hydrotherapy tub (just like a jacuzzi) ~In-room free Jose Cuervo, Bacardi, Smirnoff, and one other ~In-room free water, pepsi, sprite, Dos Equis ~Flat screen TVs ~24 hour room service ~EXTREMELY helpful and pleasant staff ~Everyone speaks English Cons: ~Only downside is that the pools close at 7pm.. It would be nice if the pools stayed open 24 hours a day or if they waited to clean them after midnight or so. Tips: ~When booking online, make sure to book the airport pickup and drop-off. This will be well worth It. Once checked in, book any additional excursions. ~We booked Xcharet once at the hotel. We booked the plus package as this included round trip coach bus service (Xcharet is in Playa Del Carmen about 1.5 hrs away, a cab would cost you $51 US dollars one way). The Plus package also gives you access to a locker, any of Xcharet's buffets, as well as free snorkeling gear for their rivers. I recommend doing the river snorkeling first. The bus will pick you up at the hotel at 7:45AM and pick you up either at 4:30pm or 9:30pm. Another must see is Chichen Itza which are the mayan ruins. Its best to book all this through BD Travel. You can even call them in advance (7 days prior to your trip) to take advantage of discounted rates and ensure they don't get over booked. ~Travel by bus. The bus system in Cancun is above exceptional. The buses run 24 hours a day, and come every 3 minutes!!! Don't worry about being away from the nightlife. The bus station is right outside of the Riu Palace and you can hop on any of the buses and for 12 pesos (you can give the drive a $1 US bill and he will give you 1 peso in return). On the way back, just tell the driver you are going to the Riu Palace Peninsula and they will literally drop you off in front of the hotel. Cabs can cost 10-20 dollars one way for a similar trip. All the nightlife and malls are within 10 min bus ride of the hotel. ~This hotel does not exchange currency, but you will not need to either. Most places in Cancun take US dollars. Usually they will give you a good exchange rate but sometimes the private shops or malls may try to give you lower rates. "
