This resort is okay. The food was good, the buffet was good as well as convenient so we only went to one al la carte which was okay as well. The snorkelling was handy right infront of the resort. We had to go three kilometres north to Akumal bay to see the turtles though. About half a klick south there are some sand bag barriers in the ocean, the kids had a blast trying to stay on them when waves hit. The rooms were average as far as cleanliness and a few mornings we had only luke warm water to shower in. Drinks are the okay but you wont find any rye there. You can find it in the liquor shops in Tulum or Playa de Carmen. And as many of the reviews state, use the collectivos, they are much more economical than a taxi. Many Europeans stay at this resort and some may be a little more aggressive in the line ups to what North Americans are acustom also quite a few of the gals let their girls out for a little sun which is something else you may not be acustom too. One beef we had was with the tour desk at the resort. We were warned by others but did not heed the warning. The tours we booked at the resort were more expensive and poorer quality. Our guide Abraham P. rushed us though our tour and was not very informative at all. We learned more from eavesdropping on other guides. To sum up, if the price was right we would go back to this resort.

The hotel is beautiful and right on the beach. The service was friendly and helpful but not instrusive. We used Best Day transfers which was a mistake as we were at the end of the line in terms of the resorts nearer Cancun. Book private car or taxi and save up to an hour each way. At the hotel Sol was particularly helpful. The reef and snorkelling in front of hotel is lovely. The food - only breakfast- was good. The restaurants nearby are varied and OK. There is an aqua zoo in the marina (Manatees, sharks, rays, dolphins) that the kids loved. Great place. If you want a safe relaxing family vacation this is it. Not alot of tipico atmosphere here- its very American but you can get out of the gated resort pretty easily to Tulum and Coba and get a taste of Mayan culture. Very safe and secure family resort.

This was a wonderful resort. I've been to 3 all inclusive couples only resorts and this was my favorite. The food was the best I've seen at an all inclusive and the presentation was excellent. My only complaints were that it was about an hour and 15 min. from the aiport, no fitted sheets on the bed and most of the beach is closed off by a rock wall. Go to the south end of the resort for the nice part of the beach. Be aware that it is an "Au Natural" resort and some females do take advantage of it. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. I will go back if I have the chance.

Loved this resort. Grounds are absolutely beautiful. Pool is large and gorgeous. Lots of seating and cabanas. The beach at this resort was the prettiest I have found in Mexico. The workers are extremely friendly and helpful. It is in a great location to do all the other activities in Playa. 5th Ave. is a five minute taxi ride. It is a nice shopping area. Lots of fun. Food is ok for an all inclusive. Ammenites right at the resort are plentiful. Snorkeling, canoeing, scuba lessons. We thought we would do more activities around Playa but we couldn't drag ourselves away from the pool! I am already planning on going back and will stay at this resort!

My wife and I have just returned from a short stay at the Aventura Spa Palace. Everyone who had visited this resort before us had told us to be sure to book our room on the Aventura side (south side of the resort), which we did. More about that in a minute. The resort is immaculate, the service outstanding, and there is plenty of food to choose from. Check in and check out from the resort is easy, and transfers from the airport to the resort are simple (the resort uses a local company called Chaza travel for their ground transportation, and Chaza is excellent, no problems whatsoever). The resort caters to couples who are primarily middle-aged professionals and older who are physically inactive. So don't plan for much in the way of any activities other than cocktail parties at night (great for networking - lots of business cards were passed around)and reading a book by the pool during the day. There is no beach at this resort, just a lagoon for snorkeling and kayaking, so the pools are pretty much where everyone congregates during the day. The Aventura side is very laid back and staid, while the Spa side is practically dead. Very good for relaxing and unwinding, but if watersports are your thing, you're best off going to some other resort. Would we go back? Yes, the resort is excellent, but we would either go for just a couple of days of doing nothing or I would stay longer and book a lot of excursions.

Traveled from June 9 2010 to the 14th and it was just amazing. Nothing could of gone wrong. The hotel was all we wanted and more. We arrived a few hours early and they had no problem giving us a room at that time. All the bartenders, waiters and staff were exellent. The hotel is small, but the best part about it is you are allowed to wonder onto the Riu Yuchatan, Tequila and Playcar. Riu Lupita is not on the beach, but the convient shuttle drops you off at the beach club and the other resorts are all within a walking distance. Like I mentioned the Lupita is a small resort so if your looking to party this isn't the place, it's a very relaxing cool atmosphere the entertainment staff is great at getting the guests involved and having a good time. Now for the food, for an All-Inclusive resort the food was great. Everyday was something different and very tasty. I have stayed at the Oasis in Cancun and the food at the Lupita was Sooo much better. The beds in the rooms are a little hard, but you do get used to them. Met a couple who were staying at a 5 star resort and told us their bed was as hard as a rock too. I have nothing but good things to say about this resort it met all our needs and can't wait to return to a Riu Resort.

I have stayed at many resorts and hotels in US, Mexico and Europe, from below average to average to true 5 star. In Mexico weighing all factors (some things are to be expected at ANY of the resorts.... the food just isn't great and it wont be, some will be better but none will be a true 5 star meal). However, this resort has been the best of them IF you are looking for peace and relaxation. The pool and beach are wonderful. The service is OK....not terrible BUT not 5 star. The rooms do need updating BUT again, of the resorts I've stayed at in Mexico, this one was the best when factoring all good, bad and indifferent. In the past men's dress shoes were always brought but never needed so of course, this time they weren't packed AND this resort is VERY strict on men wearing slacks, collared shirts (which we had) AND close toe shoes. Even if you look clean and very presentable men MUST have closed toes shoes. Yes, I would return to this resort, just know, if you have been to 5 star hotels or resorts this is not a true 5 star, but in comparison to other resorts this was one of best for the beach, pool and adult relaxation and peace.

In retrospect this was a great place to stay, but the initial contact with the front desk was not positive, unlike the other 2 hotel/resorts we stayed at this trip (see checkin below). Once you got into the rooms and rest of the resort things were nice, hotel employees were cheerful and efficient. Each morning from 8:00 to 10:30 you can reserve seating at one of the four specialty restaurants. We tried the Japanese and the Steak versions. In our opinions we preferred the diverse and well prepared buffet dinners where you can sample many kinds of seafood, good fruits both simple and mixed or topped with something, many fruit juices (at least one requires acquired taste), good Mexican variations of meats and vegtables. All service was very good. Rooms on the north side have substantial bass volume at times from the next door resort's entertainment (bar?) but didn't keep us up after all the days activities. The Riu allows full use of their adjacent resorts (except dinners) so you can eat and have drinks in multiple areas and you can easily walk between them. Mexican style evening entertainment in open courtyard was good (pleasant outdoor weather, free Marquaritas and beer enhance that) and the Riu Palace Riviera Maya also has evening shows. Check in: Our information booked with Hotels.com was acknowledged by the Riu chain, transmitted to the hotel but they couldn't find it on their system for 2 hours after we arrived and seemingly couldn't care less, couldn't go online to verify. Hotels.com tried to call hotel 3 times and tried to fax info twice to hotel but they couldn't get through and the fax machine was broken. My conclusion is that the hotel reservation system is so disconnected from their clients (who book online or through major group travel operations) that front desk customer service is not emphasized. Be sure your travel agent is on top of it because any problems and the front desk tells you to contact them. So front desk staff was 1 and service staff inside the hotel was a good 4. Taxis and Tulum side trip: Security and controlled access to most resorts means you can't get off the main roads or highways without passing through checkpoints so touring other resorts can be difficult. We rented a taxi for the day to see the Tulum ruins and adjacent area. The doorman at this resort was a good guy who got us reasonable prices without negoiation, other places a good practice might be to ask how much, quote the best price you've gotten in the past or offer less, usually they'll match it if you're reasonable. Also when you arrive ask the driver how much, on occasion final price was significantly less than what hotel staff (other than Riu) quoted or arranged. If you're going to Tulum, a good side trip is the Tulum public beach (a very nice place to be) just south of the ruins afterwards or whatever in the area you'd like to see on the way back (Puerto Adventuras?), seems like the taxi price does not vary from ruins-only price. We hired a guide for the ruins tour (after we walked past the ticket area we were offered a rate 100 pesos off posted rate), well worth it if you're going to block out the vacation time to go there. The site is somewhat protected from wind and can get very hot during the day. You can no longer climb the temple steps, like a lot of ruins, but there are good views and stairs to a nice beach at the base of the temple bluff. It was packed when we were there so we went to the picturesque and less used public beach just south (3-4 km?).

This is our second AI resort we have ever been to, the other was a sandals resort. Everything said and done the Sandals resort (Emerald Bay) we went to was better but the reasons were few and far between. First let me talk about the food. Everything was really good my wife and I had no complaints about anything we ate. The only thing were Sandals had the edge on this was all of the places to eat were buffet here and I guess I just prefer the made to order menus at Sandals. The pool was nice we didn't spend much time there however. One thing I didn't like is the fact there was no hot tub. I know most people wouldn't want to sit in a hot tub in Mexico but it was chilly one day and it would have been nice, or at night. We spent most of our time at the beach which was amazing. There were always plenty of chairs for laying out and sun bathing. The drinks and bars were good not great I think they could use more of a drink menu most of the drinks they had were pretty standard fair that people would already know. We liked at Sandals how they had all the different drink and we could just try all kinds of different new things. The rooms were very nice, everything was clean and neat. All of the staff was very friendly. Overall we had a great stay and would highly recommend this hotel. Although we did think the other resort was a little better we would for sure say here over Sandals being that it was less then half the price and we thought a much better deal.
