More and more people are realizing you can get a more authentic Mexican experience with better beaches too by staying in Playa Del Carmen instead of nearby Cancun. If you are one of those people you are going to love this deal, as one of the nicest all-inclusive resorts in the area is currently offering suites (it’s an all-suite hotel) at 55% off their normal rates.
The Riu Palace Riviera Maya Resort is offering Junior Suites for only US$308 per night for two people with everything included, compared to the normal rate of US$684. You might see this low price and assume that it’s a lesser quality resort, but this is a 4-star luxury property that gets excellent reviews from past guests.
A Junior Suite at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya Resort in Playa Del Carmen for US$308 per night for two people.
This deal is only available on Expedia, which is our booking partner, and it includes an Early Booking Bonus so it’s not available for last-minute travel. There is no required length of stay to get the deal, so it can be used even for a long weekend.
Wonderful amenities at a top-rated hotel
This all-suite hotel has rooms that start at 38 square meters, with 1 king or two double beds, a separate sitting area on another level, a bathroom with a jetted tub, a flat-screen TV, and even a replenished minibar, all with European-style décor. You also get many luxury bathroom amenities, just as you’d expect in a top 4-star property.
Something that should let you know that this is one of the best resorts in Mexico is that it receives an average TripAdvisor rating of 4.6 out of 5. Most hotels average under 4.0, so it’s nice to know that the Riu Palace Riviera Maya Resort gets more 5-star reviews than it gets all other kind of reviews combined. This means that guests feel their expectations were exceeded for the price, rather than meaning it’s just a fancy hotel.
Many choices for everything
You can choose from around a dozen different restaurants and bars, with almost everything included at all of them. They do offer some premium food and drink items for those who are picky, but almost everything is included in the room price, with a daily fill-up of your room’s minibar part of the deal.
There is a swimming pool in addition to the excellent beach, plus surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking, and much more, all included in the room price. Most guests, however, are more than happy to just relax by the pool and order free drinks from the swim-up bar or at their lounge chair, and maybe take a nap to rest up for the nightclub visit after yet another fantastic dinner.
For this price, this is easily one of the best all-inclusive deals in Mexico during summer, with still pretty much perfect weather to be expected.
