    Perfection in Cancun for adults ONLY

    My husband and I recently returned home after a week at the most perfect hotel. Our checkin process was quick and were explained the property amenities. We were given a perfect room #531. Center of the hotel, perfectly overlooking the main pool & clear view of the beach. We only stayed on the beach (we have a pool at home) and the water was perfectly clear and there wasn’t any seaweed. We had no problem getting 2 lounge chairs front row by 8:30am everyday. A very helpful employee would quickly come over and ask where we wanted a large umbrella. The drink service on the beach was excellent. Thank you to Felipe, Jose Alberto Perez and Luis Miguel. They all work so hard to keep drinks constantly coming & filling our insulated cups with ice and water (btw we never got sick). These men are so friendly, thoughtful, caring and considering it’s so hot and humid, they always had a smile. The food was delicious. We always had breakfast outside at the buffet. The staff constantly made sure all the food was fresh and refilled. We loved all the options. The waitresses and waiters were very helpful clearing our dishes and making sure our juice and coffee was refilled. We loved all the other specialty restaurants too. The shows at night were entertaining. We loved the live bands before and after the shows. The coffee bar was excellent. But the poor employee working there probably needs one more person working there to provide extra support The piano bar is beautiful, comfortable and enjoyable when the pianist is playing. The only thing I wish the hotel allowed, was for us to have disposable plates with snacks (nachos, fruit, and sandwiches) on the beach. This was our second time there, and we will definitely return soon.

    Staying at the Riu right now..

    Let me begin by saying the staff are amazing at this hotel.. They cannot do more to make your stay better.. The hotel itself is in need of some major upgrades if it claims to be a 4-5 star resort.. In the ocean view room.. No kettle.. Only a coffee maker.. Not great for tea drinkers.. Television channels are all in Spanish except for maybe CNN. Room AC is useless.. Even after having the engineer check the whole system.. Room safe does not work.. Same engineer said will take a few days to fix.. Am only here for 4 days! Shower head does not stay in one position above your head.. Slips down.. Toilet does not flush properly.. Need to flush twice! For a #1! The pools are amazing as are all the staff around the restaurants and bars.. But.. You will need to be up and saving your sunbed by 6.30am! Good luck with that! I have stayed in Riu hotels in a few different countries and have never had a complaint.. But I shall not be returning to this Riu..

    Excellent resort!

    We took five High School Seniors to this resort for their senior trip and it was excellent! Great accommodations, nice rooms, great food, drinks and fun pools! The foam party was so much fun along with volleyball in the pool and a great swim up bar. Very friendly staff and everyone was so easy to work with. Highly recommended!
