    The service is with out a doubt the best!!

    The service at this location was outstanding. Whatever you needed was done in an efficient manner. The rooms are clean and modern. The buffet was excellent for an all inclusive. The restrooms at the beach or at the main lobby were always clean and smelled fresh. I can’t express enough how great the service was!! We can’t wait to go back again to the RIU Palace Rivera Maya! By the way, it’s a short walk or drive to Playa De Carmen.

    Have traveled to the RPRM many times and it never ceases to amaze me. They have the best employees that truly care about their patrons. The hotel manager David took time out of his day to introduce himself and hear our feedback. It is always an absolute pleasure to visit the RPRM.

    Pleasantly surprised

    We booked a one week stay through our travel agent and were highly impressed with how beautiful this resort is! Daniela helped us at the front desk and she was knowledgeable and personable. We became fast friends with Adriana at "Daiquiri" bar in the lobby. Their bakery had the best cheesecake EVER and the employees were very helpful. They have two buffets; both of which are plentiful but the one that is located on the ground floor inside the resort is the best. The pools were pretty crowded so we never did get a chance to try them out. The sand on the beach is so soft and wonderful and the water is sparkling blue. The Italian restaurant was our favorite and we ate there 3 or 4 times. I recommend the lobster ravioli off the menu and the Osso Bucco over risotto (also off the menu). Nice little buffet with pizza, pasta, salad, and some desserts but order off the menu if you want a sample of how wonderful their food is. We had steak and lobster at the Steakhouse and were pleasantly surprised at how tender and perfectly cooked the steak was and how tasty the lobster. Only negative to their steak and lobster is that they don't serve drawn butter but we enjoyed it without. The rooms are kept immaculate as is the entire resort so kudos to the housekeeping staff. If we ever go back to Playa del Carmen, this is where we'll stay again!!

    Well deserved break!

    Back for a second time in the last 5 years. Since our last visit the hotel had undergone a refurb and layout change. Had another wonderful stay. Staff are delightful and attentive as usual. There's an abundance of food on offer, all of which was delicious.
