Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. January 2017 

Palladium Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to upgrade its Riviera Maya Complex throughout 2017. These renovations will include converting and incorporating the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa into The Royal Suites Yucatan.

This transformation will be completed in various phases starting on July 1st, 2017. Construction will mostly take place within the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa and will have minimal impact on guests since the majority of this hotel will be closed. All guestrooms within the hotel, the rocky walkway along the water & the salt water pool area will be closed to all guests during the completion of the project. All other areas including the Riviera Lobby, Disco & Theatre, El Jardin Restaurant and the current The Royal Suites Lobby will be closed during certain dates listed below. During times of closure, the areas will not be accessible to guests and should therefore not impact the guest experience.

Palladium Hotels & Resorts is dedicated to providing guests with memorable vacation experiences and is certain that these renovations will elevate guests’ experience at The Royal Suites Yucatan. The Royal Suites Yucatan will feature a total of 444 guestrooms with premium amenities and services, 108 of which will have swim-up pools, a completely new beach experience featuring an adults-only Beach Club, 4 exclusive a la carte themed restaurants, a “Dinner and a Show” buffet restaurant that will host different types of shows, and a new Infinity Pool. These improvements will provide guests with additional options that will make their stay that much more special.

Below is a complete project timeline:

Disco & Theatre

July 1 – December 1, 2017: Construction will be in progress in the Disco and Theatre of the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa. During this time, alternate entertainment venues will be provided to guests.

Once construction to the Disco and Theatre are complete, the Disco will convert to become one of four exclusive restaurants available to guests of The Royal Suites Yucatan and the Theatre will become the second exclusive restaurant providing guests with a “Dinner and Show” themed experience referred to as the “Cabaret”.

Riviera Lobby and Kabah Buffet:

July 1 – September 15, 2017: Construction will be in progress at the current Riviera Lobby which will convert to the new The Royal Suites Lobby. Guests will not be affected by this construction since all guestrooms in Riviera will be closed. All hotel services will be available at the adjoining White Sand, Colonial and Kantenah Lobbies.

Construction will also be in progress at the Kabah Buffet. During this time, breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available at “La Laguna” as well as the other restaurants within the Riviera Maya Complex.

The renovated Kabah Buffet will feature 2 separate sections – 1 buffet exclusively available to guests of The Royal Suites and 1 for guests of Grand Palladium.

“El Jardin” Restaurant & the current The Royal Suites Lobby:

September 16 – December 1, 2017: Construction will be in progress at “El Jardín” restaurant and the current lobby of The Royal Suites. The current lobby for The Royal Suites will convert into 2 separate a la carte restaurants. By this time, the new lobby for The Royal Suites will be open at its new location and the buffet will be available at Kabah.
