Riu Palace Riviera Maya (AI)

Recommended Posts

The suite was about $2,750 more, but that was for two weeks. For one week, I'm sure it would have been slightly more than $1,000 (probably half of what we paid - $1,375). It was so nice to have the extra space to entertain guests and store all the wedding crap we had. The room has a big walk-in closet, where we could all the vases, gift bags, etc out of site, which was really nice. They say you get an automatic upgrade, but I wouldn't count on it. I've heard from a lot of people that expected to get that and were very disappointed. If you're getting married in June, July, or Aug. there might be a chance, but otherwise, I think it'd be pretty unlikely. The regular suites are very nice though, so don't feel like you need to spend more. The regular suites were by far the best rooms I'd ever seen in Mexico before! I'll post some pics of the regular rooms. Hope that helps!

Here's a few shots I stole from my friends and family. They loved their rooms and the resort. I had many comments about how much they loved the landscaping, the food, the pool, even the beach (with sandbags even)! I also got several comments about the rooms being the nicest they'd even seen in Mexico, the biggest bathrooms, the cleanest, how they would be nice rooms for a hotel in the US, etc etc. Everyone loved it and all my guests had the regular, run of the house rooms, which they call Junior Suites. I've seen some companies say that all Junior Suites have couches... this is NOT true. All the junior suites have a lounge area with a TV, but some have a couch and a coffee table. The rooms with a couch and coffee table are divided into two areas, with a short 4 ft wall between the bedroom area and the living room area. there is one or two steps dividing these areas. The other rooms have nothing dividing the areas and only have two chairs with a small table in between. Either way, they are all nice.

 

These are the views from their balconies. You can see, they were placed in the back of area of the hotel.

Here are some shots from inside my sisters room and a friends room....

 

This is the interior of the room without the divider - notice the chairs, rather than a couch

Here, Michele is standing next to the bed. The photo is taken from the living area where the chairs are. If you look behind here, there is a large closet, your mini bar, and the door to the room in this area. Behind that area is the bathroom - which has a jacuzzi tub, tub sink and is beautifully filled with marble.

Hope those help!

Here's one of Ben and my mom in here Junior Suite. They had one of the nicer Jr. Suites, which had the divider between the living and sleeping area. See the edge of the couch and the short wall :) Sorry these, pictures aren't great for this purpose!

Thanks again Kelly! The pics/ descriptions do really help me get a good idea of what to expect. All the rooms look nice but the suite certainly does look worth the extra cash.... I'll have to check our budget!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
