Nice Vacation

I wasn’t sure at first about this resort. It was small and I wasn’t happy with the room when we checked in. It ended up being a wonderful family vacation. The food was really good and that surprised me. The dervixe was good for the most part. There was an extreme language barrier and even the front desk struggled to communicate with us. They don’t let you charge to the room so bring a credit card. The snacks you buy are very expensive. The only downfall of the trip was an iPad being stolen by a taxi driver.

Great place for relaxation

Nice resort, very clean! The service was exceptional since the moment we arrived! You were never left without a drink in hand while you were in the pool/beach area.

Amazing resort for the value

First let me say the place is smaller than the Palace but for the value it is great. The rooms and cleaning staff are great. The food and restaurants are Awesome especially the wait staff at the Italian restaurant they are what a vacation truly is. The only one low point is the seaweed at the beach which the workers try very hard to clean up but due to the fact it is hurricane season really cant complain to much. Overall I would and have been recommending this place since we came back. We have been going to the different Riu's because their food is delicious and they take pride in fulfilling all your needs.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Sinking your sandy toes into the soft, white shores in Playa del Carmen. Ahhh, swoon.

Top-notch service where you get to sit back and be pampered. It's vacay time. You deserve it.

Keeping the party rolling at night - letting loose at La Pinata nightclub.

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

100% Authentic Mexican food with lots of chips & guacamole for that necessary afternoon snack.

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

 

What We'd Change

The a la carte restaurants at night require a dress code - so for the guys - throw in some long pants in case you need them.
 

Why You Should Go

Eat, play, drink at the other Riu resort's near here - Riu Playacar, Riu Palace Riviera Maya & Riu Palace Mexico.

You're within walking distance of shopping on "5th Avenue" - Playa's retail hub of local treasures and restaurants.

You can explore all the local sites: 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.

There's three glistening pools - perfect for lounging, day drinking and pure relaxation.
