Very cheap liquor & pool area wasn't very clean. Unable to use the other RIU like you could in the past. Food quality was very poor.

Best Vacation Deal

We originally booked RIU Lupita but upon arrival, we were upgraded to transfer to RIU Playacar!!! On The Beach!!! It was absolutely beautiful! The beach was gorgeous, the food in all areas was surprisingly amazing, and the entertainment was non stop and better than any cruise I've seen! We would highly recommend vacationing with RIU Playacar! Only negative: it was hot, hot, hot at the end of July, and while the air conditioning in the room worked, its ability to really cool the room down was limited. Luckily there was a ceiling fan which helped a little. Overall we loved our visit and the staff was amazing and friendly! We would go back tomorrow if our work schedule allowed!!

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Laying poolside. All day long. Ahhh, swoon.

The full-service spa-some experience at Renova. Massages and facials and a whole lot of you-time.

Delicious Mexican food with lots of chips & guacamole for that necessary afternoon snack.

Basking in the day and night entertainment. Prepare to be wowed.

RiuLand let's the kids burn off energy with other kiddos their age. You get to lounge in peace.

 

What We'd Change

The resort isn't beachfront, but the resort has a shuttle that will zip you there.

 

Why You Should Go

You'll be charmed by Playa del Carmen. To get to those sandy shores, the resort offers a beach shuttle.

You're close to the shopping on "5th Avenue" - Playa's retail hub of local treasures and restaurants.

Local sites nearby that are worth exploring: ancient Mayan ruins, Sian Ka'an Reserve or the Crococun Zoo.

Feeling like an adventurist? Head to the bright blue seas for snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing and more.

Keeping the party rolling at night - letting loose at Pacha nightclub.
