We stayed at the Riu for 11 nights and loved it! It has something for everyone! The staff work really hard resulting in customer service being impeccable and very clean!! The staff can not do enough for you we felt like royalty! We loved our room and the food was outstanding too! Highly recommend !!

Cannot fault this hotel, staff are excellent very friendly and always seemed to be cleaning! Only thing would be (although you can see in pictures and videos before you go) very rocky on one side to get to water. Beach at this place would be a let down although bar service in beach is ace!!!

All Inclusive NOT Pool Table SAD SPORTS BAR

We are currently staying at this RIU Hotel....one thing stands out to us is the so called Sports Bar, they make you PAY 40 pesos ...$3 or so Canadian....to play a game but NOT a real game of Pool either because if you scratch the white ball etc...you can NOT bring back up any balls for your penalty...So this is not a real game of billiards, and disgusting that this high end hotel wants to charge for this,,,the worker explained that they contract the tables out ...seriously? Can't the RIU afford to buy their own tables for their guest to enjoy.? We are very disappointed in this system and the Sports Bar is EMPTY the majority of the time....and the few tvs that are in their have no volume on ...you walk into a quiet hollow echoey room. (Exception to this is if the entertainment crew do karaoke for an hour... after that everyone leaves) RIU is wasting this area, it was even empty yesterday when we had monsoon windy weather...they brought in poker tables into the lobby and even a PING PNG table in the lobby...and outside the sports bar in the small hallway they had ring toss set up, but go into the sports bar EMPTY and they still are Charging for the pool tables on the rainy day...this is ridiculous. We have been to other 5star resorts that have had 3 billiard tables, they would keep the balls behind the bar, people would sign the balls out and were given 30 mins to play pool...of course could play longer if no one was waiting. The pool tables there were and looked well used, but we did not care about appearance just the game and would enjoy it every evening. RIU may I suggest you step up the to plate and spend a bit to purchase your own pool tables for your guest to enjoy as they do ping pong and other sport activities at your resorts, I am pretty sure you can afford it.

Great trip in Mexico

Just stayed 4 nights at the Riu Peninsula Cancun. Overall an excellent stay we had bad weather but nothing to do with hotel. 1. I give the hotel staff an (11)out of ten for their excellent service. Which includes all the restaurants, room service , bartenders, reception, bell hop . Everyone super friendly 2. Restaurants over all rate (9)Ate at the Mexicana , Italiana, steakhouse and buffet. You can't go wrong, several good dessert options as well. 3. My one complaint is the booze rate a (6)Early Times and Jim Beam was their best whiskey. I like my old fashion. My wife had several mixed drinks and didn't care for them. Beer was tecate light and XX. 4. Gym was small rate (5) 5. Premises very clean rate (10) someone was always cleaning wiping things down 6. Entertainment was on the late side 945pm a few shows that were ok rate (7).
