My boyfriend and I traveled to Cancun and stayed at the beautiful Hotel Riu Palace! The staff, the food, the cleanliness was remarkable.
The overall experience at the hotel was a wonderful one, and we would definitely stay there again. There are a couple of minor watch outs/suggestions that would improve the overall experience.
-In the rooms, all of the items, the bedding, couch, even our clothing and luggage, was always damp. I am not sure if this is because of the humidity or what, but laying down to sleep on bedding that feels wet is not very pleasant. Not sure if this is something that can be corrected, but it got to be pretty annoying after a while. In addition, once we got home our luggage and clothes had a damp, musty smell that took a lot of laundering and Febreze to make go anyway. Just an FYI
- There is a small 24 hour snack area just off the lobby and although it has free water, which was wonderful, the snacks are certainly not healthy at all. It would be nice to have access to fruit and other healthier options around the clock than just chips, hot dogs, chili, etc.
We definitely plan on visiting Cancun again in the future and were overall very happy with the experience!
