About Riu Palace Riviera Maya All Inclusive, Playa del Carmen

Resort with a spa, free WiFi, near Playa del Carmen

Coastal getaway

Only 2.5 km from Playa del Carmen, laidback Riu Palace Riviera Maya All Inclusive lies on the sandy Playacar beach on the Mexican coast. Highway I-307, which leads to Cancun International Airport, a 54-minute drive, is 2.9 km away.

Golf, family fun, dining

RiuLand offers daily entertainment for kids, while grown-ups can wander across the road for a round of golf at Playacar Golf Club. The surrounding town of Playa del Carmen has plenty of bars and cafés to duck into, or you can simply stay put for dancing at La Piñata Club.

Cocktails by the pool

You can choose from lounging by the poolside bar, taking a dip in the hot tub, or watching the kids splash in the children’s pool. Renova Spa provides relaxation, while extra calories from overindulging in the many 24-hour restaurants can be tackled in the fitness center.

Sea views, free WiFi

The 400 rooms feature traditional decor, free WiFi, and views of the Caribbean Sea from balconies or terraces. Coffeemakers, minibars, and liquor dispensers offer guests a convenient range of drinks, while flat-screen TVs offer relaxed downtime.
