Built to resemble a red-roofed Spanish beach castle, Riu Palace Mexico All-Inclusive Resort impresses Priceline guests with palatial common rooms, enormous pools and an ideal location. This 434-room hotel on three floors commands a large swath of white powdery sand overlooking the Caribbean. All rooms have a balcony or terrace, flat-panel cable TV, in-room safe, mini-bar, Mexican colonial-style furnishings, ceiling fan and little touches like bathrobes and turndown service at night. The resort's restaurants offer buffets, fusion, Japanese, Mexican, Brazilian and international menus, so you won't go hungry. Numerous lounges around the property mean you'll never be thirsty either. There's plenty to do, including tennis, swimming, a full gym with sauna, and strolling the property's gardens, but you might spend most of your time on a lounger gazing out to sea. That's okay too. The concierge is happy to help with dinner reservations, car rentals and currency exchange. Parking is available. Riu Palace Mexico All Inclusive is less than three miles from the thriving beach town of Playa del Carmen. Cancun International Airport is 37 miles away. Day trips to Chichen Itza and Tulum to see Mayan ruins can be planned at the resort.
