TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Riu Palace Riviera Maya Playa del Carmen
I stayed here for 8 nights for my 30th Birthday trip! It was a great experience, although we did end up going to the Riu Tequila after the hotel slowed down for the night! The pool was fantastic, very big, there were only a couple of times that it got crowded. It is a nice 15-20 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen (5th Avenue shopping and nightlife). The resort is in a guarded residential community with the entrance 2 minutes from 5th Avenue.

... 30, so every little stop took ages! The tour guide would say "I mean British 10 minutes not Mexican 10 minutes", yet still it ended up being a Mexican 10 minutes most times! So what was booked for a 10 hour day trip actually took 14 hours! Despite the very long day, it was great to see Chichen Itza, it really is amazing, that such a long time ago they managed to build massive structures that work as a calendar! The main structure is incredible and the calendar ...
