Beautiful hotel and grounds. Beautiful beach and sand very well kept. Food was just OK. Got food poisoning after eating at Don Roberto’s restaurant which ruined my stay three days. Staff was very helpful and very nice. The waiters at the beach and pool side we’re great very courteous and helpful. I love that it was peaceful and not too much activity and loud music which made for a very relaxing vacation. Hotel gave us a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for our anniversary and followed through on my requests for the room. This room was the best room I have ever had balcony view was beyond. I did not like the smell in the 24 hr lounge. I specially liked that mean we’re not required to wear slacks and dress shoes. My husband was very happy. I would recommend!

First time to Cancun, Hubby and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary there. Riu was amazing, those folks was always cleaning & painting something from sun up to sun down. The waitresses & waiters always showed eagerness and attentiveness toward visitors, waiting on us hand and foot. Guaranteed smiles with verbal greats in the morning and throughout the day from everyone. I have already recommended this hotel to others, and will be returning in the near future. Thanks RIU for top class. Oh, the food was amazing. Still trying to figure our where is all the food coming from. As for the atmosphere, very laid back adult only resort. There was no wild frat students, screaming all hours of the night. We were very welcomed at other RUI resorts with the same curtesy. I'm still trying to understand how the bartenders and food servers remember your name or the drinks you ordered. Way To Go, I am sold. . Cons: More Spanish to English translations. We joins the RUI class and the web page is total Spanish. Not good.

This is a great hotel. We stayed here for five nights in September '18 and highly recommend it. The hotel was upscale, very well maintained and very clean. It is about 25 minutes from the airport. I cannot say enough about the staff - very friendly and accommodating and there was no shortage of staff who spoke English fluently, especially at the front desk. The pool and outdoor beach lounging were quite comfortable and there is a beautiful and scenic ocean view. Wait staff came by regularly to see if we wanted anything from the bar (we often did). We attended one of the nightly shows and it was better than I expected - a good band and excellent singers and dancers. The buffet and restaurants were very good, and the staff remembered us and some even remembered the way we like certain things. If it under performs anywhere it is in the spa, I think. The gym was just ok, and the locker room and sauna were disappointing. To use the sauna, you have to request it 60 minutes ahead of time and it is small...you can't get more than two people there and you can't even put water on the hot rocks...really?!? Nonetheless, when returning to Cancun, I will stay here again.

Beautiful Hotel and great location

Pros: the architecture, reminder of "LA BELLE EPOQUE" and the entrance view to the infinity pool and the Caribbean sea sea
Cons: bed sheets could be better as well as pillows, they are so small for a king side bed, looks like baby pillows.
Location: very close to the shops and disco, bar, restaurants
We stayed 3 nights, beautiful Hotel, very clean, services is excellent, I will stay again , the only thing negative was that the air condition wasn't working properly, we called front desk and they sent a repair person promptly he tried his best , but still no working properly , we did not complain anymore because we spent most of the time outside and it was only 3 night and after dark it was a little bit better. I just want to mentioned that food was ok, nothing out of the world, different places to chose from but I will rate it 3 stars , I do not have any expectations at all inclusive resorts about food, they have to cook huge amounts and I think that's the reason the flavors are no great however, they have a lot of options including snacks and fresh fruits and that make it easy . overall we were happy, view from our balcony was extremely beautiful and the staff was great so we can said our stay was very nice. in general we had a nice time.

Great food, friendly service, and lots to do

Pros: We had a positive experience with all the staff. They went out of their way to make sure you were happy and enjoying your time there.
Cons: The lobby bathrooms should be cleaned on a more regular basis.
Location: It is located right by the Cancun nightlife as well as plenty of shopping within walking distance.
This adults only location had a variety of people - groups, couples, and individuals of all adult age groups from all over the world. There were plenty of options for things to do every day with multiple pools and a large beach area as well as events in the outdoor theater at night. The food was excellent with choices of specialty restaurants as well.
