Riu Palace Mexico - hand painted murals, floral ceilings rimmed in gold, and a tiny Spanish chapel.

A lavish nightclub in whimsical design hosts nightly entertainment, and a pristine white beach along the mesmerizing turquoise sea promises to delight the senses and soothe the soul. Deluxe and spacious guestrooms (mostly split-level) are beautifully decorated in rich wood and granite rose tile, each offering a sitting area with mini-fridge and bar. Ideal for couples and Honeymooners. 434 air-conditioned rooms.
