What's to Love

Riu Yucatan Resort in Playacar is within walking distance of the famous 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen; who doesn't love great vacation shopping?


What We'd Change

The a la carte restaurants are popular, so don't delay in making dinner reservations. You don't want to miss making your taste buds happy with these yummy eateries.


Why You Should Go

We loved how you have access to the bars at the other two Riu resorts, too. It's like three resorts for the price of one!

Hotel Description

Hotel Riu Yucatan: Get Into an Island Frame of Mind at Riu Yucatan

Ready to leave the real world behind and get into an island state of mind? Riu Yucatan and the fabulous Playa del Carmen are just what you need. You'll find picture-perfect fun, unlimited drinks and nightly entertainment at this tropical paradise.

Riu Yucatan and its all-inclusive packages will have you feeling the island groove the moment you get your first cocktail. Once you've wet your whistle, it's time to hit palm-fringed Playa del Carmen. This corner of paradise lures pleasure seekers from all over to its pretty beach with sparkling blue water.

After a bit of body surfing, kayaking and snorkeling, make your way to the two large pools for well-earned R & R. Thanks to two swim-up bars, a fresh pina colada is just a dogpaddle away. Two Jacuzzis and a children's pool round out the options for aquatic indulgence. In addition to swim-up bars, this resort has four others to sample. But that's not all: Riu Yucatan all-inclusive deals give you access to all the bars at the Playacar complex, which means you can order up your favorite rum collins or a cold brew at Riu Playacar and Riu Tequila too!

Since man cannot live on fruity drinks alone, Riu Yucatan serves up a variety of goodies at three restaurants. At Sicilia, the newest Italian restaurant will swoon your taste buds with traditional Italian specialties that are cooked to perfection. Theme nights, twice a week, keep choices new and exciting. You can also make reservations at La Margarita for a juicy steak, or check out the Asian buffet at Shanghai. Once you're refueled, get ready to salsa at La Pinata. Your all-inclusive stay covers free entry and drinks at this nightclub at adjacent Riu Tequila.

Don't forget to unwind at Renova Spa. If a massage at a sunny Mexican resort doesn't relax you, well... maybe another margarita will! Either way, you'll enjoy sweet island dreams from a Junior Suite so you're ready for another day in paradise.
