Great time!

The resort was exceptionally clean, with very friendly staff. The entertainment staff was awesome and their shows each evening were a lot of fun. Food was great, not much of a wait, if any at all, for the restaurants. The buffet has great quality food. Crystal clear beaches, clean pools and great food. This was my second time staying here and would go back in a second. Transportation to and from Airport was also great, felt safe the entire time I was on the resort. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a Cancun getaway!

Great time! Great time!

An awesome trip

This was one of the best trips I've ever been on. Went with my girlfriend and we are both in our early 20's. We had an incredible time. The resort itself was beautiful. I thought I was in the wrong place when I walked in. Our room was cozy and great. Had a beautiful ocean view and the mini bar and fridge was always packed. Rooms were cleaned and replenished with fresh towels everyday. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Didn't receive and attitude and not one frown. Every one greeted us with a smile. The pools were very nice and so was the swim up bar. The only downside I can think of was that there was only one Jacuzzi and it wasn't that hot temperature wise. The food was outstanding. The all you can eat buffet had some great food everyday. The specialty restaurants were so great. The food was delicious and the service was awesome. I can't stress enough about the service and how great it was. The party staff that worked there was a lot of fun and kept us very entertained. The shows at night were cool as well. We were in walking distance with all of the cool clubs and bars outside of the resort. I felt very safe outside of the resort no worries there. The crowd as this resort was fun, it was spring break time so there were some spring breakers but also young adults as well along with families. It was a good mix. Long story short this was arguably the best vacation I've ever been on. I highly recommend it.

Love Riu Cancun

WE had an amazing trip!! All inclusive trips from cheapcaribbean.com is the way to vacation. They made everything very easy!! The only thing that was a negative was first week of spring break, so if you want a little less rowdy don't go during March.

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?

Lounge bar. Open daily.

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.
