Riu Yucatan is a deluxe beachfront All-Inclusive resort with a Mexican Hacienda architectural style & a privileged location in the exclusive Playacar complex, which is only 3 km from the picturesque town of Playa del Carmen. Tropical gardens surround a fabulous fresh-water swimming pool with a children`s section, jacuzzi and swim up bar. There is also a sunbathing-terrace with loungers and towels at guests disposal. The Riu Yucatan is a great choice for families and couples.
Here is what one guest had to say about their experience.
”We stayed at the Riu Yucatan in September, having stayed at the Riu Cancun. The location is superb – right on the southern part of the beach. We found the food and the rooms absolutely excellent! The staff are what makes the hotel, they never stop working, always cleaning every thing in sight, but they are always smiling and friendly! I read previous reviews about hard beds and poor food choice, but can categorically state on both counts the food was wonderful quality, and loads of variety, and the beds were enormous and extremely comfortable. The Riu Tequila is approx. 200 meters away and you can use all their all inclusive facilities. We saw a Moulin Rouge show there, which was very good. Other people we spoke to who stayed there said the evening entertainment was excellent every night. (They also have a 24 hour Sports Bar).
In the Riu Yucatan grounds, due to the location near to the jungle, there are some wonderful, friendly animals wandering around the grounds.(One looks like a raccoon, one like a giant guinea pig and families of monkeys up in the trees. I also saw an iguana on a couple of occasions. All are safe and friendly, but please do not feed them as they have their own food chain within the grounds).
I would strongly recommend this hotel to people who enjoy a beautiful beach. This is an excellent hotel – as are all the Riu hotels we have stayed at. I certainly plan to go back again!”
So there you go! In my opinion the Riu hotel chain in on of the most popular that we sell. The Riu Palace properties are also available to those who want a little extra pampering! Don’t take my word for it, check it out!
