Wonderful experience from start to finish!!!

The Rui Cancun is a beautiful property and very well maintained. Every employee we encountered ( and there were many ! ) were all awesome!!! The Buffett had a large variety to choose from and the Dinner options we chose ( Japanese and Italian ) were fun and delicious. We had 3 rooms in our party of 6 each room was beautiful, clean, comfortable with amazing views! I requested the rooms to be near each other and while we were not all on the same floor we were very close to one another. We plan to return to this resort!! Very pleased with our experience.

Fun Graduation Trip

We went with a group of 12 guys for college graduation. We spent most of our time by the pool bar, lobby bar, and in the pool. We enjoyed the resort bars quite a bit and spent most of our time at them. The food options were pretty expansive, so if you wanted to sit down and dine there were a few options to do so. At the same time, you could very easily eat every meal at the buffet (we had 5 guys eat every meal there), which is as good as anything. The rooms were what we expected but the beds turned out to be a little small, which wasn't a huge deal for us. The nightlife on the resort, which is a club, is pretty fun if you make it fun. The liquor is not exactly top shelf, but it mixes well enough. The only beer is Dos Equis, so you get pretty tired of it toward the end of your stay. Overall, we enjoyed our stay quite a bit and I would recommend it to anyone wanted to have a fun time and enjoy the views.

Amazing Trip!!

This was our very first all-inclusive resort trip. I was very nervous about the hotel and activities, however it was amazing. Very fast and easy check in, very nice and clean rooms, and the service was great. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the resort, they took our bags to our room and we met with our "activities director" right away and he helped us decide what we wanted to do on our vacation. The food in the buffet was amazing, and had so many options! This was out first time to Cancun and we will definitely be back.

very nice resort

We really enjoyed & had a great vacation at this resort. The room we asked for was to have 2 beds. Upon arrival at our room we had one bed so the bellman called the front desk and they changed our room immediately and the bellman went downstairs changed our keys and brought the new ones to us. The buffet had plenty of choices as well as the many restraunt choices that were all inside except for one outside. I would recommend this resort to others and I would return in the future also.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

No golf carts needed here to get around - you can stumble from the pool to the beach to the restaurants & bars easily.

Three pools with ocean views and breezes means you and your travel mate/partner/husband/wife/dog won't be on top of each other.

The soul-soothing whirlpool off the gym. Yea - you can picture yourself there.

The delicious food & drinks, incredible service, fun-loving entertainment - it's like being wrapped in a cozy beach blanket.

At the cooking stations at the restaurants, they'll cook you up something "on the fly" - now that's what you're talking about!

 

What We'd Change

The gift shop at the resort is a bit pricey, but right across the street is a large supermarket so you can pick up any groceries you might want or things you forgot for a lot cheaper.
 

Why You Should Go

It's about 13 miles from the airport & in the smokin' hot Cancun resort area. You've landed in the epicenter of Awesome.

Don't miss Isle Mujeres - stunning beaches, fresh seafood, loads of culture. In town, you can find a museum or two!

You can rent a bicycle and explore that nearby shopping center (or go all the way downtown).

Soak up all that Riu Caribe (sister resort!) has to offer - the diving pool is da bomb.

Map of Local Area

Cancun is definitely Mexico's showcase resort. Built in a location that was named by Mayan people, Cancun has been carefully groomed into one of the most polished resorts anywhere.

Hotel Description

Riu Cancun: In the Heart of Cancun's Resort Zone

Awwww, it's vacation time! And traveling to Cancun is so crazy simple, especially since the Riu Cancun is so close to the airport - aren't you glad you'll be frolicking on those white sands in no time?! The gleaming pool waters, the soothing ocean waves and a big 'ole Mojito (hey, take your own insulated cup to keep it even cooler) are calling your name. It's time to shake, rattle and roll because sometimes vacations only come around every now and then.



DINING

You'll have variety, some traditional favorites (pizza, pasta and salads) and cooking stations throughout the day so you can order up exactly what you want. Plus, it's Mexico so you know you'll feast on someone's Grandma's guac and salsa recipe.

BARS/NIGHTLIFE

You'll find local and imported beverages at the bars and since you're at an all-inclusive, you can order as many as you want - there's no judging here - just like no one will judge your dancin' skills at the disco. And, the sports bar is bound to get a little rowdy, too - you saw that foosball table, right?

La Fiesta
Lounge bar. Open daily.

BEACHES AND POOLS

Three shimmering pools and an infinity pool with drop dead gorgeous views - you're going to be at that swim-up bar lots (unlimited drinks all day, all week!) Of course, loungers, umbrellas and towels are all available to you. Best part - just a step or two off the sun terrace is Cancun's claim to fame - soft sands and sparkling seas.
