This is a standard all inclusive. The beach is really nice (not rocky, well kept) but there is nothing that sets this property apart from others in riviera maya. We go to one every year for 25 yrs. Most others that we have gone to have something that makes it unique. If you are looking for a smaller property and don’t care about not having a plethora of activities and the beach is very important to you, this will work well for you.

The property was very clean and the amenities were great as well. The only bad thing was the check in very slow. Other than that our vacations were great.

As in all Riu hotels that we’ve visited, the food and the staff were great. The breakfast buffet was incredible, and the Asian and Italian restaurants were very good. Staff was friendly and accommodating, from housekeeping, to the bartenders, to the Covid testing staff. The facilities themselves could use some upgrades, but overall it was nice, clean, and a good spot for a quick getaway. We did not use the beach because of the seaweed, but that is the time of year, and not the fault of the hotel. The pool was very nice, and we spent the majority of our time there.
