This is Riu's newest resort in the Riviera Maya. It is extremely similar to the Riu Palace Mexico with a few differences. Before reading this page you should read the Riu Palace Mexico page. The differences are age, size, and location.

Since Riu resorts have such a great product there is a high demand for them. So Riu Hotels and Resorts built a 400 room resort 5 minutes down the steet from their existing complex. Riu Resorts are starting to take on the same architectural shape. The Mexico, Mecao, Punta Cana, Cabo San Lucas, and Rivera Maya all are shaped like a "U" opening up to the beach. In the middle is a courtyard and a pool. Seeing how this is Riu's newest resort in the Canun/Riviera Maya it is a bit higher priced than the other resorts. Even though it has the same shape at the Riu Palace Mexico and the same restaurants it has few more rooms. With more rooms means more and bigger facilities. The pool here is bigger and better. There is a sports bar on site vs at the Palace Mexico you have to go to the Riu Tequilla for a sports bar. The rooms are the exact same except for the color of the décor.

Reasons to book this resort You are looking for a good family resort with shopping and nightlife close by. You want the use of the Riu complex but also want the newer Palace Resort.

Reasons not to book this resort:You are looking an adults only resort.
