Very nice for price

Had a fantastic time in sports bar with Victor. Wonderful, friendly guy. Grounds were very clean. Someone was always sweeping or cleaning common bathrooms. Staff quite friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit dated. Stayed with husband and I and our son. Two double beds were right next to each other. Kind of strange. The fabric on sofa was dated and worn but not horribly. Beautiful otherwise. There were plenty of chairs on the beach. Pool was a bit crowded. Did NOT like the fact that people would put towels out at 7am and then not go to their chairs for HOURS. Kind of rude but we always found somewhere to sit. Walked to open air market (about 35-40 minute walk down beach). Fun experience. Food was decent at the hotel buffet. Mexican restaurant our favorite. Tuscano was pretty good, we went there twice and we liked the Japanese restaurant as well. Went with another family. We had a fantastic time. There was a sign on the alcohol in the room that said replenished daily. It was never filled but they probably would have come if we asked and if we even used it. There was a building going up right outside our room so it was a bit annoying every morning to hear the trucks and the pounding but not enough to ruin our vacation. Other family we traveled with lost a valuable in room. Right before we left a staff member tore apart their room in hopes of finding it. They were very concerned and the item was recovered. Again, staff was very nice.

Slightly disappointed with the Riu Palace Pacifico

First impressions of the Riu Palace Pacifico with its magnificent reception area, is of a top class hotel offering excellent service for discerning guests. The reality is somewhat different. The behaviour of some guests make it seem more like Butlins with sun! The pool area is lovely provided you stay away from the swim up bar, which is often supplemented by various types of drinks. The most annoying thing for me was the 'sunbed baggers' although the hotel says this is against their policy, they don't appear to have any inclination to stop it and if you don't get down by 9 at the latest you don't stand a chance! The food in the restaurant was pretty good with plenty of variety although some of the waiting staff could be a bit surly (especially the women). I didn't rate the speciality restaurants very highly, my fillet of beef in the steak restaurant which I had requested cooked medium had blood running from it. I cannot fault the cleanliness of the hotel, there was always someone about with a broom in her hand!

JacNic had a Blast !!!

Just came back and we loved the place. We took room with full view on the beach #6036, the room was marvelous, drinks in fridge always packed, very very clean, Food was great, Service was great. To have full WiFi on the site was neat. We did not use the pool we preferred to be on the beach, really enjoyed the use of the little surf boards and wait for that big wave!!!. For entertainment was great but the Michael Jackson night was like he came back to life WOW!!!. The band was ok but we find they were set up in a little corner... they should be on a higher stage and this would get the tourist to dance more. The piano player in the other bar was also great, On our way back home on the plane some went to other Riu's near by and was not satisfied... make sure if you go to a Riu ... choose the one who has the word Palace in it!!!! and you will be served like Royalty.

Not coming back

My husband and I are here right now at the Rui Palace for the 5th and last time. Something has changed around here and we don't like it! Just called room service with a request for some soup for my husband who has been ill in bed all day. They refused, said we have to go to the restaurant and get our own soup! Wow, that's service isn't it? Oberastar here we come!

Not that impressed with the Rui in Mexico

Mexico was nice and hot but the staff in the hotel weren't. Stayed there for 2week for new year and first night we got there I think every one in the plane got a view of the building site. The rooms weren't big enough for 3 adults. Me and my hubby had to share a bed with our 15 years old son in 2 small double beds. Went to ask for a z-bed for him and all we got was we don't have bedrooms with 3 beds. So we got a room change in 2 days. Got there and it was the same as the other room. So we went back down to the desk and they said it was a upgrade. We didn't won't a upgrade we just wonted a separate bed for our son. They then said we have a cot bed he can sleep on. That's a z-bed to us. And we said ok but why did u move us and say you didn't have a bed/cot. I don't no sir. But in 2 day we will have a room with a king size bed and a cot bed for ur son to sleep in. So that was 6 days into the holiday wasted. The hotel restaurants you couldn't get in because it's a first come first served basis and if you didn't tip the staff like the American/ Canadian u didn't get in. The same with the bar staff. So you had one opinion eat in the open help ur self restaurant. That's the same nearly every night. Good side was it was lovely and hot beaches were mint and the sea was warmer than the pool. But sorry I wouldn't be going back 🤔😌
