Description

The 24-hour all-inclusive Riu Cancun is located in the heart of Cancun and set on a beach of white sand and turquoise water. This majestic resort soars above the Caribbean Sea, steps from the Galeria and Caracol shopping centers and in the heart of nightlife and activity.

This grand resort boasts a rich decor with high hand-painted ceilings adorned with flowers and frescos, and Spanish-style oil paintings cover the walls. Over the pool bars, domes are decorated with intricate mosaics and have a Moroccan-Mediterranean ambiance. Long walkways front the restaurants and offer seating areas; a perfect place to relax and enjoy a cool drink in the afternoon.

Kids will love the RiuLand Mini-Club. Children ages 4-12 can partake in numerous activities with adult supervision. During the day, the hotel provides entertainment for all ages, including watersports, a tennis court, and one introductory scuba diving lesson in the pool. At night, Pacha Discotheque is the place to go for non-stop dance music. Also, entrance and drinks are included! Afterwards, start winding down at the 24-hour sports bar.

Looking for a vacation full of rest and relaxation? Renova Spa offers numerous types of treatments to put the mind, body, and soul at ease. The gym, sauna, and Jacuzzi are complimentary. Of course, there is always the option of sunbathing the day away and lounging with a tropical drink at the swim-up bar!
