RIU Palace Mexico Question

I think we made a mistake, we booked this hotel for the end of august but upon further inspection it, seems that all the rooms have that open concept with the bathroom that I dislike. We are also going with our 14 year old son which is why I think we made a mistake and might have to change it to the Playacar.

For those of you who have stayed here.. are any of the rooms normal rooms with a bathroom that has privacy? Thanks in advance.

Many rooms have a curtain separating the bathroom area from the bed and seating area. Or, you could try to switch to the Riu Palace Riviera Maya which has the traditional room setup. Should be about same price. The Playacar would be quite a bit cheaper.

Its Tuff becouse the RPM is very nice. BUT thinking about and staying in those Riu room / bathrooms is going to be a negitive for your trip. Make a change now. It is dificult for long married couples alone, plus you have a son. The privacy curtain blocks the view from the bed to the tub and wash area only. The wash area is open to the hall door. The toilet room is smaller than a porta potti. A 14 year old son with you, I would go to Sandos.
