Opened in 2012, the Riu Palace Peninsula is the Spanish brand’s newest property in Cancun. On a thin strip of land jutting into the Caribbean Sea, the oceanfront property has both soft, powdery beaches and wild rocky shores. An open lobby with marble floors welcomes guests to the all-inclusive resort, unveiling a property lush with palm trees, villas and the three main pools lying between the hotel and ocean.
Rooms are large with chic white-on-white décor and bathrooms with black marble tubs, walk-in showers and double sinks. All rooms have ocean views through floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead to private balconies, complimentary Wi-Fi and mini bars are stocked with top-shelf liquor. Adults-only villas feature lounge areas, outdoor whirlpool tubs and bathrobes with slippers.
The property’s pool deck gives guests the option of infinity, sports, family-friendly and adults-only before they make a splash. Away from the sun, guests have access to a gym, beauty salon and spa with Turkish bath. After dark, live music is performed on an outdoor stage and shows are presented nightly in the theater.
All-inclusive rates include unlimited meals and drinks at nine restaurants, seven bars and 24-hour room service. Dining options include two buffets, an adults-only restaurant exclusive to those staying in the villas, Mexican, Japanese, a steakhouse and more sure to please picky eaters. For drinks, guests can head to the swim-up bar, 24-hour sports bar, ocean-view piano bar, a casual beach bar with soft lighting and cabanas.
