This was our first visit to Cancun, having previously stayed on Isla Mujeres. This is a huge resort hotel with many specialty restaurants, large pool area, good beach for lounging and enough bars. There is also a coffee shop that needs to open earlier than 10AM. The food in the specialty and buffet restaurants was good, not great. The lobster...

We stayed 5 days at the Riu Peninsula, entire resort and our room was very well maintained and super clean, the staff is everywhere and you can tell they care about cleanliness, you accidentally drop a piece a paper and someone will be there within minutes if not seconds to pick it up. The grounds are beautifully situated in a...

My friend and I spent one week at Riu Peninsula and we both enjoyed the hotel and activities. We had an ocean view room on the 9th floor overlooking the stage area and as others have mentioned, the rooms above the evening entertainment are noisy, but thankfully the music stops around 11PM.The rooms in the wing above the restaurants would...

We just got back a week ago from Riu Palace Peninsula. This is our second time at this hotel and it was just as fabulous as we remembered. We were able to take our two boys, who are young men now, with us this time and we all had an amazing time. Food was good and we LOVED not having...

This is not my first time at a Riu resort but my first time at this one. We paid extra for the adults only villa and our building had no view other than the two buildings in front of us. The villas are three stories High and only the front two view the ocean. Traveling from Minnesota, it is important...

The good: - No more restaurant reservations. This was always a PITA having stayed at three other Riu's over the years. - No more running down first thing in the morning to reserve seating. The grounds are expansive and very well maintained. There was no problem finding seats. - Food was very good for an all inclusive. Best were lobster...

We stayed for seven nights in the king jacuzzi suite. The suite was massive, larger then our 2 bed condo downtown Toronto with a huge patio. Amazing views of the sea from every window. We were on the sixth floor and could literally walk around nude as we had no overlooked windows. I've stayed in many all inclusive resorts this...

We just returned from 7 days at the Riu Palace. Beautiful lobby and grounds. we stayed in a villa. They were extremely nice,but looking back probably would not stay in them again. we like to spend most of our time at the beach and never used the private pool. We loved the fact a person didn't need to make reservations...

The RUI Peninsula is a unique place. We stayed there with our 3 boys during the week of Christmas and New Years. Here are the PROS and CONS. PROS: If you are a swimmer, tri-athlete or Ironman you will love the pools. One is 79 yards long and perfect for training. There is also an infinity pool and bar pool...
