Somehow good. Customer Centric...?
Somehow good, hotel director (a lady) looks rude, quite lack of customer centric behavior. The pace nice, not the best.

overall very good. more sophisticated food and drinks than some other properties we stayed. room was old and smelled moldy. we asked for a change, got into a room with less smell. personnel was great and very helpful. photographs on the website are a bit misleading- this property is not ocean front as it may seem. you need to walk across the road and extra 5 min to Riu Yucatan which is ocean front to get to the beach. Beach is nice. Hotel is nice too.

Perfect getaway for couples or families
The property at the palace doesn’t compare to the rest of the riu resorts. I highly recommend staying here over the others as the property grounds are very well kept, the staff is superb and you won’t find any ants/bugs around at all. The evening entertainment is worth staying awake for and the “Playacar” shopping center is a quick walk to grab souvieners. The area is totally safe and you are only about a 8-10min taxi ride to downtown playa Del Carmen/ferry docks (about $7usd) the buffet food is fantastic (I say this with confidence as I have stayed at many AI resorts) every night the buffet is different. (If you want to go to the other restaurants be sure to bring long pants (men) no reservations necessary) also the beverages, beer, wine and alcohol are high quality :) this is not your “SPRING BREAK” party hotel (If you want that stay at the Riu Tequila) if bringing small child I def recommend a stroller and bag to take to/from pool area

Wonderful team of people from the time we arrived & were greeted to those who worked so hard to entertain us so well & the waiters, maids, gardeners......in fact during the whole stay everyone was incredibly helpful making our stay enjoyable and stress free. Exactly what a vacation should be. Thank you all 😃
