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.

Great beach

We have stayed at RIU palace peninsula and loved it. However the beach was rocky. This hotel was nice right in the heart of downtown cancun. If u want to shop or b part of the night life it's great. The beach is absolutely gorgeous here. The water is so clear little seaweed. The only thing was our room smelled like mildew. They put us in another room and it smelled similar. We bought air freshener and it was ok. I would not book this hotel again.

Our vacation

I went to Cancun with my husband and met up with 4 other couples. We were greeted at the door with refreshing drinks. The check in process was fast and easy. Our bags were brought to our room immediately. We headed downstairs to check out the place and met so many helpful resort employees. The resort was very clean and beautiful! The nightly entertainment was great and had some good voluntary participation. The restaurants were good and buffet have endless options. The cooks were so nice and considerate, if I wanted something they didn't make, they would make it. Overall the resort was a positive and memorable experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

What's to Love

24 hours of All-Inclusive means grub at your beck and call - late night munchies will be a cinch.

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 - all you've ever wanted - 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?

BEACHES AND POOLS

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.
