Typical of the Riu Hotel experience thankfully, the Riu company haven't yet butchered the décor here like they are doing in most of their hotels - it is still authentic Mexican style Clean and well maintained Food - plentiful, good choice - although like any hotel, you do get a little fed up of eating !!! Drinks - lots !!!...

Our trip was amazing. We booked our trip through Apple Vacations and received all of our requests when we got to the hotel we were told that we were upgraded from JR Suite Ocean View to Master Suite Ocean View for free! It was amazing! The employees were wonderful and stopped doing whatever they were doing to help you out....

Had an excellent stay here nothing was too much trouble from our check in until our check out. Upon arrival the bellboys greeted us at the taxi, took care of our luggage, and directed us to the waiting reception staff who presented us with a glass of cava and hot towels to freshen up we were handed our pre printed...

Late Tuesday, we returned from a week at Riu Palace Pacifico and it exceeded our expectations. RPP is on a great stretch of beach - you can walk a long way in either direction. The resort itself is stunning - a beautiful lobby with soaring ceilings and chandeliers and ornate paintings and fresh flowers. The grounds are perfectly manicured. Something...

What a great property this is! The staff was amazing and the facilities were beautiful. Rooms were nice and clean and surprisingly so was the pool. Jose, the bartender at the swim up bar was awesome! Also, Victor the bartender at the outside bar was a true asset to Riu. Location was good if you like to be a little...

Just returned from 2 lovely weeks in the Riu Palace. A lovely hotel, spotlessly clean. The food was amazing, never got bored with eating in the same restaurant every night. Didn't bother with the specialist restaurants. So much to choose from. The staff were extremely polite and the service was very good. Pool area very clean, but of course gets...

Everything was superb however there is one thing we didn't like and it's the "lack of rules enforcement". Children splashing in the infinity pool that should be reserved to adults only. Or the towels used to reserve the chairs at the swimming pool side at 5AM when the rule states that no reservation with towel can be made before 8...

Overall this resort was exactly what we were expecting based on the price of the trip - a good, clean, mid-level resort. Hotel - Hotel is exceptionally clean. Rooms (basic junior suite) was large and perfect for us. Hotel is small, I could easily walk from the beach to the room (1st floor above the lobby) and back in under...

This was my third stay at the Palace since 2012. It's still beautiful, the food exceptional, and the service second to none. This time we had an ocean-view room on the seventh floor, with an extra-large balcony; ask for room # 7037 if you want the perfect ocean view from a very private balcony.
