Prior to travelling to Grand Rivera Princess, I read dozens of reviews in search for pros/cons and travel tips prior to arriving. I travelled with my best friend to celebrate our birthdays and to relax during the last week of September - Early Oct 2021 I'll just keep it short and sweet with some thoughts about my experience & stay at Rivera Princess: Upon arrival at the resort, we were carted to the platinum club for check in and offered a drink. Unfortunately the orientation to our stay (what was included in platinum, what the resort has to offer, etc) was very short and had limited information. We were provided a map of the resort and that's all. Luckily, I had done my research prior to arriving so I was aware of everything included and the layout of the resort, but for those who do not research, this would be confusing. We were then shown to our room. The room was OK - a bit outdated, nothing spectacular. The alcohol provided in the rooms was very low quality, we gave them to other guests in the resort. The beach bag provided was helpful, I just wish there was one per person. AC was working and fridge was stocked. Didn't spend a ton of time in the room anyway other than getting ready for the evenings.*Keep your balcony door shut, as Coitis and monkeys like to rummage though rooms with open doors in search for sugar and snacks :) We decided to purchase the platinum room next to the beach, which is about a 10 minute walk from the main lobby. This is not an issue if you enjoy walking, as the grounds are beautiful and you get to visit the resort cats along the way. *There is an autocart that can take you wherever you want to go on the resort!! 24/7 room service was a huge plus - The food was delicious, especially the club sandwich, pasta of the day and chicken ceasar salad. While we were there, the sports bar, disco and casino etc were all closed due to Covid? Or maybe low resort attendance (20% full). Either way, I was disappointed I could not play pool in that beautiful Sports bar :( We ate at the buffet next to the main pool (with the columns) every morning and the food was great, good selection and not packed with people like the buffet in the main lobby. We spent many nights in the main lobby outdoor space, where there was live music, a silent disco (THE BEST SATURDAY NIGHT) and a dj that frequented the stage. The beach was beautiful, the outdoor grill was fantastic to grab a bite if you didn't want tacos by the main pool. LOTS of people out selling things, which can be pretty irritating if you're trying to relax and be left alone, but most wouldn't push a sale if you respectfully said no thanks. Now on to the best part of the resort... THE STAFF. During our week there, we met so many kind, helpful, energetic and hard working staff. Seriously though, meeting these folks and getting to know them during our stay was a highlight of the trip.. If you have the chance to meet these amazing staff members, you are LUCKY! Martin: He was our concierge for most of our trip, located in the Platinum Lounge. He helped with any/all of our needs, including setting up our COVID PCR test, providing recommendations for things to do, where to go and was generally such a wonderful guy to talk to. We would visit him every night in the Platinum Lounge just to see how his day was going and it was a pleasure to get to know him. His commitment to customer service and making our experience an excellent one was appreciated and I would recommend him to anyone who visits Rivera Princess. THANK YOU MARTIN! Susana: She is one of the runners out at both pools, zooming back and forth delivering drinks with such a wonderful sense of humour. She was very fun to chat with and would always remind us to "take your time!". THANK YOU SUSANA! Neff: She's the bartender at the main pool bar (with the columns). Not only did she provide us with top notch service, but she was very creative in going above and beyond to make us new and special drinks. You should watch her work! She is very good at what she does. I just wish there was a big umbrella for her at her bar because for a couple of hours point during the afternoon, the sun is beaming directly at her as she's working.. wow! THANK YOU NEFF! Marco: We met once at the main pool bar, but he provided us with many recommendations for great Mezcal and Tequila. Also some great recommendations for beautiful spots in Playa Del Carmen. THANK YOU MARCO! To all of the housekeeping staff: Thank you for cleaning our rooms every day! Also for the amazing music recommendations, and for the short dance party in the hallway haha! We met so many other amazing staff members as well but I these are just a few who really made a positive impact on our trip. THANK YOU PRINCESS STAFF! Overall, our trip was relaxing and the resort was beautiful. I would love to return again and spend some time in other areas of the resort when some of the places on the resort are not closed to have the full experience. Thanks for the memories Rivera Princess! <3 - Your admiring Canadian friends, Colin & Mel

We love this resort so much! We came here the first time for our honeymoon, but had to come back again! Lupita Conde as always was perfect! She made us feel like family back in 2019, and the love has grown each time! She is so professional, and caring! We are so blessed to have met her, and we hope we see her again really soon! A few pictures with our amazing friend! The other couple in the photo met Lupita for the first time this trip, and they were in love with her also! Thank you Lupita for being the greatest worker, and for caring for us like family!

Everyone was so welcoming from reception to the massage room. They provided a bottle of champagne for my friends birthday and the massage was soooo relaxing, the cream they used for the facial smelled amazing and I feel so much lighter. Would recommend everyone come here to release tension and unwind. Amazing experience and everyone spoke good English which was good being I am from an English speaking country. Will def be back!! Thank youuu!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay. The service is amazing, the grounds besutifully kept and all the facilities top notch. A few things worth mentioning: 1. Staff will go out of their way to help you 2. Many local travel agencies will approach you on the beach for excursions... true the price is better then direct with the hotel or airline HOWEVER if your time is precious this us where you will likely lose out. Typically with the hotel or airline the trips are quicker as they offer tours with pnly fellow travelers from same resort.... whereas the vendors on the beach make many stops at other resort to fill a van or bus.... we did an excursion like this - the actual excursion was amazing but we wasted 5 hours in transit (should of been 2 - 2.5), stopping multiple times.waiting for other people etc... we regretted our choice for this reason only to save a few dollars.... 3. The Silent dance (Saturday evening) is a must! So much fun! 4. It is true there are a LOT of coaties and you must keep an eye on your things...they are not afraid to help themselves to your food or drinks. Or invade your room if they can get in.. a quick clap of the hands will shoo them away. Not sure though if nothing is done and they continue to multiply that guests will remain tolerable to this as we heard many who were upset :( 5. Waitresses Suzanna (pool) and Marguerita (beach) work so hard and are both deserving of a 5 star review for their service with a smile! 6. Food is plentiful and delicious! 7. Covid protocols are outstanding... all staff wear masks inside AND outside (in scorching heat) and they still smile! There was lots of seaweed at the beach but the staff work all day to clean up as much as they can A vacation is what you make of it! For us it was an amazing time - thank you Riviera Princess! (And thank you for the free upgrade to Platinum...given to us when we told them we were newly married during the pandemic- what a great surprise that was!) Gerald & Bonnie ( or as staff called us Mr.G & Bonita :)

Dear Gerald & Bonnie: Thank you very much for taking the time to write your Trip Advisor review. We appreciate all your feedback and are happy to hear that we were able to meet your expectations. We share your opinion with our staff so that they feel motivated to continue working at a high level. At the hotel we work hard to prevent guests from being attacked by the wild animals that live here, asking guests not to feed them; It is our duty to protect the animals that live in the surroundings, but it is also our responsibility to take care of our guests and our guests help us a lot by avoiding direct contact with the animals. We will forward your comments to the appropriate department. We hope you come back soon Mr. G & Bonita :D !!!!
