Hotel Riu Palace Mexico - Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Riu Palace Mexico

As the flagship of the Riu Hotels in the Mayan Riviera, the Riu Palace Mexico sets the standard of excellence among vacation hotel resorts. Unsurpassed in beauty, quality, and premier service, this wonderful hotel blends the finest elegance of old Europe with the natural warmth and charm of Mexico's Caribbean coast. When it comes to luxury, style, and comfort, the Riu Palace shines as the crown jewel among all the Riu Hotels in Mexico.

Surrounded by an expanse of manicured gardens, splashing fountains, and palm trees, this three-story all-inclusive hotel resort features a sparkling pool complex, fountains, gazebos and wrought iron benches, and meticulously clean grounds. Groomed lawns and tiled walkways connect the individual hotel rooms with the surrounding landscape. Brilliantly architected on both the inside and outside, the Riu Palace is esthetically decorated following the traditional style of Mexican estates. The resort exudes a distinctive Caribbean flavor and ambience.

Pool Area

Relax in one of 434 spacious guestrooms, recently renovated (fall 2012). Enjoy the finest amenities and room services. Just inside the lobby entrance is a small and exquisite Spanish cathedral built with gilded carved wood, statues, paintings, and other artworks.

The hotel lies at the edge of a white sand beach, with clear waters and the fabled coral reefs of nearby Cozumel Island.
