What a great resort and deal!

A friend and I decided to book at this new resort through Cheap Caribbean for a quick 4-night getaway. It was astoundingly awesome in every way. We loved the property, the staff was amazing, and everything was easy. I would totally recommend this place to anyone (families, kids, friends, couples, etc.). The only complaint we had was about the service in the restaurants at night, but I think this new resort (just opened in December 2017) is getting into their groove. And the buffet was fantastic.

What a great resort and deal!

Relaxing Vacation

Loved the resort - great pools with plenty of lounge chairs and a lot of room on beach as well with plenty of lounge chairs too. Nice, clean rooms but could use better pillows. Buffet was good and never overly crowded. Specialty restaurants OK, but do not take reservations so you have to get there at opening time 6:30. Overall - good experience, nice resort for a good price. We absolutely loved the adult water slide too !!! Actual ride to/from airport about 30-45 mins "more or less".

Overall great value

This is a brand new hotel built end of 2017 in a new hotel zone in Cancun that is still being build out. Here are my thoughts about this hotel: - There is really nothing around for miles, beach outside the hotel zone is not maintained and is kind of dirty (this was not a negative in our case since we like to stay in the hotel zone) - Food selection was good - You could see that the staff was still learning things, but overall service was good, staff was friendly - Hotel was clean inside and out - Rooms are simple, modern looking. - Room cleaning service was really good Overall we liked this hotel and had really nice time.

Nice, but needs growing time.

This Riu seems to be a cheaper version of the Riu chain we’ve visited. The rooms are nice, but the furniture and room amenities give off a “no frills” vibe. Walking to the sports bar for morning coffee is ridiculous. Need coffee services in the room. The property is in a growing stage with new palm trees and vegetation, and in time will be great. The beach is outstanding. The layout of the property is poorly done, with walking paths seeming to lead you first away, then zigzagging back to your proposed destination. Walking through the theater to get to the restaurants is strange. Makes you want to cut across the grass in several spots. The elevator situation reared it’s ugly head when we there causing us to give up a deluxe ocean view room for a standard ground floor room. The staircase, three flights, was just to hard to navigate for us. The shows go on @9:45 pm which is late if you’ve been playing in the pools, cocktailing, and sun bathing all day, so we never got to see one. The ala carte restaurants need to get a reservation system. Got tired of being to told there was a 45 wait each time we tried, however the buffet had good food, and different carving stations each night that provided a variety during our stay. Now for the staff! Everywhere you went, everyone gave excellent service. If they didn’t understand a request, they went and found someone to help. The front desk, Giovanni, went out of his way to help when my husband found he left his diabetic pen needles at home. The staff at the action pool provided fun games for those who wanted to join. The Friday pool party was the best.
