Incredible Time Out

What a beautiful place, only had 5 days to vacation and I couldn't have been in a better place. The hotel was incredibly clean, and well taken care of, the grounds were spectacular, the food was more than a person can imagine. The buffet was endless, the staff was more than professional, extremely hard working, and at your call. Something was always going on in the pool with games, or dancing. There was more than enough to do. Can't wait until next year as I plan on returning. I highly recommend this hotel.

RIU was great

I went on a family vacation with my daughter and her family. There were 7 of us in total. The place is beautiful! The view from our room was incredible and beach was spectacular! Pool is great and staff is friendly! Great value! We will be back! Cheap Carribean was awesome! Flights, Transportation, and hotel was all perfect! Book the higher floors if noise is an issue although nightly entertainment ends by 11.

Cancun in July

My family had a nice vacation in Cancun! The hotel was clean, but only the guest rooms have AC. The beach had a section with a lot of palm trees to create shade which made the heat tolerable. We enjoyed the food in the specialty restaurants; however a couple of nights we couldn't get in because of limited seating. I loved the pizza at the little pizzeria. We didn't visit the steakhouse because it is outside by the pool and too hot to enjoy a heavy meal. The pools were fun, I liked the swim up bar but it's so hot in Cancun the pools feel more like hot tubs. There's also very little wind by the pool so we ended up staying down at the beach so we could catch a breeze. The staff was very helpful and even down at the beach we had someone bringing us free drinks!

Love Cancun! Great Honeymoon!

The resort was gorgeous! Wonderful beach and pool areas! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The room was clean. Loved the shower! The bed was hard. The shampoo and conditioner are hard to get out of the dispenser in the shower. The fan is loud if it's on high. Need more food variety and just some sandwiches and snacks would be nice.

Love Cancun! Great Honeymoon! Love Cancun! Great Honeymoon!

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive and the aqua water that hugs the shimmering, white sand isn't too shabby either.

The liquor dispensers in the rooms. The party starts and ends when you say it does.

The stress-chasing-away massages and facials at the spa. Prepare to melt.

You're near the sizzling nightlife of Cancun. Any time you want to amp it up, you can.

The city buses only costs $1. Yes, you read that right.

The heart-stopping view at night of the enchanting Nichupte Lagoon.

RiuLand, where your kids can be happily occupied for hours while you are busing chillaxin'.

 

What We'd Change

Sometimes it's difficult to get a seating at one of the a la carte restaurants. So, ask about reservations at check-in.

 

Why You Should Go

The always fascinating Mayan ruins are near - Tulum or Chicen Itza.

If you want to surprise someone with a birthday cake, they'll be on it.

Don't miss a trip to Isla Mujeres - scuba there and visit the underwater art museum.

Also at Isla Mujeres, the Garrafon Nature Reserve has flora & fauna to fawn over.

Golfers, there are 18-hole golf courses that are near. Bring your A game.

You can snorkel at Nizuc water park and swim with coral, sharks and rays. Dive in.

There are oceans of water sports - catamarans, windsurfing, water skiing and more.
