My husband and I stayed at RIU Palace Mexico for 4 nights (Dec 8th-Dec 12th), and had a great experience. We were celebrating our 1st anniversary and were looking for a perfect place on the beach to the relax, and this RIU is just that!! When we arrived to the hotel we were greeted by the front desk with welcome drinks and a free room upgrade! The rooms were nice, and the bed was HUGE! We had a nice view of the courtyard, which I enjoyed. The food and service was great. Our favorite restaurant was the Japanese and then Fusion. Wasn’t a huge fan of the Steakhouse; it wasn’t terrible (just not as nice as the other specialty restaurants). The grounds of the hotel were clean, and the landscaping in the courtyard was very impressive. We both enjoyed the location of the hotel, and felt very safe. My favorite part was the location on the beach. It was only a 20 minute walk to the downtown area where you could take the ferry to Cozumel. The only negative comments we had, were the entertainment in the evening was pretty cheesy and we wish they had some nicer house wines.
Overall, the RIU Palace Mexico is a great location for a winter getaway. We can’t wait to go back!!
