Two resorts, mirror images facing each other across the main pool, with full exchange privileges, the new Grand Riviera Princess and Grand Sunset Princess could really be sold as one resort, but they have decided to split the names so each can be sold through different suppliers (don’t ask us why…)
As with our very well-rated Bavaro Princess and Punta Cana Princess in Punta Cana, Princess Hotels has done it again with all-suite, all-inclusive, great value properties, this time in the Riviera Maya. Not too far from the airport (and only a few minutes from Playa Del Carmen), a Junior Suite is as low as $82 per person, per night in May, which quite honestly is unheard of in Mexico. That price level is where 2-3 star hotels price…we’re still amazed at how great a deal these resorts are.
Again, the Princesses are all-suite properties, with upgraded suites that feature Jacuzzi tubs, direct swim out access to the pool, or even ones that sit on a man-made lagoon. The also have a Platinum category which offers 41″ flat screen televisions, unlimited Internet access in the lounge, 24 hour room service, and much more.
Seven a la carte restaurants, two snack bars, a late night sports bar with snack service and an ice cream parlor means never having to go hungry. And if you’re a pool person, this is heaven – 12 (yes, 12!) swimming pools (including four just for kids) are located throughout the property. Very large beach, one of the “deepest” we’ve seen, gives plenty of space for beach chairs.
Add it all up and you get a great value for your dollar – maybe something to think about when that tax rebate check comes in! Plenty of great pictures from the Grand Riviera Princess and Grand Sunset Princess on our site…
