Riu Palace Mexico All Inclusive, Playa del Carmen
Very Good8.0
No international cooperation....
Every single staff member we met or saw was OUTSTANDING and very friendly. They made sure we were totally happy even though we should have had a better grasp of the Spanish language. The language barrier was a slight concern. But the staff smiled and made sure to figure out what we needed. Fancy bars and food but there were So many more poorly behaved children than we expected.What were those parents thinking? There was not a lot of interaction between the MANY international guests represented. Everyone seemed to stay on their own though the staff tried so hard to communicate with everyone. Rudeness of guests to each other was very sad. We all had our own idea of what a vacation is but obviously others ideas didn't match ours. We never were able to get two chairs together at the pool or the beach. We saw many many chairs with towels and personal items but no people so we could not enjoy the beach or pool because we didn't get there early in the day. Food was special and the selection of alcohol was good. Unfortunately, we won't plan another trip to Cancun, Playa de Carmen or Mexico for that matter but that has NOTHING to do with the staff at Riu Palace Mexico.
