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.

Today seemed like the perfect day to travel too the Cenotes rainforest to explore and too look at the famous big sink hole. Some people make the decision to head to the rainforest by themselves based on prices but i didn't want to take a risk of the dangers that could be associated with not going with a trained tour guide, anything could happen, snake bites or any animal attacks you, drug cartels, a bunch of different things so i decided ...
... roads, and avoiding potholes the size of a California King Bed. We rubbed shoulders with Die-hard scuba divers, hippies (no yuppies yet), campers, backpackers et al.

... as yesterday, I had the ministroni soup, the cheese and tomoate appy, and the lasagna, with the chocolate cake. Stacie had the tomato appy, the ministoni soup, penne with spicy tomato sauce, and cheesecake. They were amazing, and her spicy sause was very spicy. Then we went with Sara and Lori to thier room, and had a after burn party for stacie and billy (stacies not that bad, but wanted to make sure, but Billy got a nice burn under his life jacket). Then it was bed ...
... though most of the parts were walkable. When it was time to swim, the water wasn't as cold as we feared. Floating around in a big cave, complete darkness syrrounding us as we turned off our lights, only hearing water drop, is simply an indescribeable experience. And accourding to our managers and collagues who have worked here before, this is only the beginning, excursion-wise. In the next two weeks we'll see if Mexico really lives up to the expectations when it comes to great ...
... smoothie was beautiful and the food was ok, pete had a steak, and Ben wasn't wrong when he said they like to really cook their steak here. Well done, oh he's it was! I had a chicken and pancake dish which was ok, but not my best choice. The bread though, boy oh boy they make mean bread here! On the way back from lunch we strolled through Playacar's Main Street to take the back road to the hotel. It is beautiful - so many palms and trees shade the path wonderfully. We saw a couple ...
