    Overview 8.95 /10

    Built in 1998 and renovated in 2006, the hotel's architecture,particularly that of the villas, is Spanish colonial in style. The mainbuilding consists entirely of communal areas. Cross the largeporch and follow on through the beautiful archways, and you will find yourself in the veryhigh-ceilinged reception area where two small desks surrounded bycolumns, marble and carpeted floors, huge chandeliers and paintings of more thantwo metres in size await you! The large picture windows allow you to enjoy the homogeneityof this haven of peace. Once outside, it is pleasant to take a walk along thelittle paths meandering across lawns and through trees and elegant buildings.As you go along you will discover the various circular swimming pools andthe ponds, sometimes adorned with little bridges. The hotel has a total of6 fairly large swimming pools within its grounds. The main one (aninfinity pool) looks right onto the beach below. A conciergeservice is provided in the pool area. The fitness centre, incorporated into the spa,is divided into two parts with picture windows. The machines are fairlyclose to each other. Outside, the spa swimming pool has ahydro massage section. The theatre can comfortably accommodate over 200 peopleas the tables are tiered. You can eat therein the evening whilst enjoying the entertainment organised twice a week(Mexican and international). Also provided: Cigar lounge and piano bar.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    As far as restaurant services are concerned, the hotel offers a variety of atmospheres,all with stylish decor and soft colours. The breakfastbuffet (the only one of the day) is served in the restaurant withan unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, you may choose ana la carte breakfast in the central building. A Spanish chef runs the resort's four a la carte restaurants: a comfortable Italian; aJapanese (Tepanyaki) where everyone can enjoy their meals sitting around two large tablesoffering show cooking; a Mexican, which becomes Caribbean in the evening, and thegourmet restaurant. In the evening, the latter is a real treat for the taste buds with itssouthern Spanish-inspired cuisine. The whole area then becomeswhite. Even though all the restaurants are all inclusive, do not forget to reserve a table in advance and respect the stated dress code!Several sittings are offered at a wide variety of times. Added to this,the snack bar is open between 11am and 6pm. As is the case with the bars, the restaurantsoffer a very enviable selection of wines and alcoholic drinks. The superb wine cellarstretches out in front of large picture windows. It has some bottles costing up to 2,142 a piece. One area isset aside for tasting.

    Beach 9.30 /10

    The real downside of the hotel is its beach, which was previously undoubtedlyvast and beautiful. However, things changed followinghurricanes Emily and Wilma in 2005. Plastic deckchairs are lined up sideby side, which allows for little privacy. A very long (low) seawall made ofenormous sandbags means you have to be careful, at first, when attempting to enterthe turquoise waters. These spoil the remainder of the beach but are,unfortunately, essential for preventing the greedy turquoise tidesfrom devouring the sand. When we visited, the sea had justbegun lapping at the walls of the raised snack bar. Supervised and rock-free,this is nevertheless a pleasant area with palm trees dotted around.There is also a water sports club, and massages are available on thebeach.

      The Riu Palace Riviera Maya takes the form of a large U-shaped luxury hotel, with two wings extending down to the sea. The internal and external communal areas are luxuriously and masterfully decorated. This upmarket hotel is financially the most accessible of its kind. But this is easily understood when you see the great difficulty encountered when planning to go for a swim.
