hotel riu lupita

:( -No WiFi in your room -Bugs in bedroom -The beach was dirty, it smelled and a distance away (you have to take a shuttle) we went to the beach once when we went shopping and the locals said that it wasn't a good time because of the tides and all the seaweed. -The food was okay. I was expecting better :) -Steak house option has a beautiful view of the beach - you do need to have dinner reservations in order to attend/eat at the steak house and i believe they only serve dinner -Good drink service -2 swimming pools (they try to divide the kids from the adult areas but it doesn't work. *Good thought. - we had an amazing vacation and i would say because of our excursions and the free drinks being served all day from the hotel and from our excursions as well.

Okay for the price

Chose this resort because it was a cheap getaway for my boyfriend and I. The resort was clean and the staff was excellent. The food sucked and was always the same. It's not on the beach, which I was aware of, and the pool was okay. There's no swim up bar and you have to go to the one bar they have to get your own drinks. AC in room didn't work well, our room was pretty hot most nights. The coatis were my favorite part. They are so cute. The steak house was my favorite meal. Overall it was a nice 5 day vacation in Mexico for a decent price. Would not stay here again though.

The room was comfortable and clean. The food was plentiful and always changing. If you go to the Mexican restaurant on site, I recommend the skirt steak...it was delicious! We also had several shots of different flavors of Tequila that is only served at that restaurant. Every staff person we met was pleasant and helpful. I think that the only negative I can think of is that the air conditioner was difficult to control...either too cold or not cold enough.

What's to Love

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.
