Email | Share |
All Inclusive    

Riu Tequila was created with attention to decor, beautiful gardens, and wonderful pool areas, and takes the limelight when it comes to affordability and family-friendly concepts! Located across the road from the Riu Yucatan and Riu Playacar, it shares exchange facilities so guests can also enjoy the non-stop entertainment at two more RIU Resorts. Just a short distance from the beach, a trolley winds through gardens past a raised gazebo bar to the beach club.

Old Mexico is featured throughout Riu Tequila. The lobby mimics a small village with grand pillars, arches, iron lanterns, and ceilings painted in swirls and decorated with mosaics. A trolley winds through lush tropical gardens past a raised gazebo bar in a courtyard and down to the beach club. The pool area is Hawaiian-style with boulders and waterfalls. Great carved doors open to the main restaurant, Jalisco, in early Mexican style with international buffets. The informal Lupita Restaurant offers poolside snacks.

This family-friendly resort offers a great vacation value, from live entertainment to an array of sports including non-motorized watersports. Kids will be entertained in the RiuLand Mini-Club and enjoy the playground and supervised activities. Adults can enjoy the nightlife at the popular La Piñata Disco with guests of the other Riviera Maya Riu Resorts. Complimentary 24-hour WiFi is also available in the common areas of the resort (available in rooms for an additional charge).

Accommodations are comfortable and have features such as a fully stocked mini-bar and liquor dispenser. Junior suites with a living area are available, perfect for a little extra room.

We got back from this hotel in June, my mum and dad has been a few times so went went with them and my 2 children there are 7 and 4. We had a brilliant time the weather was great for the 2 weeks we was there. The pools was lovley we mainly stayed in the pool at the top where there was the sit down bit as you walked into the pool. All the food was great and was a great selection my mum and dad went to the alacart a few times and booked it on the way to breakfast about 8.30 and could always get in, the kids loved that they did food for them. The hotel grounds are lovely and I hope they don't update the hotel like the playcar and yutacan as they look more like shopping centres. We walked into 5th avenue one day and only took about 45 minutes and that was walking with 2 kids are there was loads of shops there. The entertainment team was great they was always working doing different games all through the day and they even did games for all the kids there and not only did they do kids disco at night they always did games with them. We meet some really nice people who had been to this hotel before. The cleaner did a great job tidying the rooms I left some money near the tv one day and was still there when I got back so you can trust them. We didn't have any problems with this hotel and non of us was poorly, i would defiantly go back to this hotel More>

Great place

We (7 y.o. twin daughters and my wife) stayed a week in this all inclusive hotel in January. The food and drinks were good, a bit in all inclusive way. The hotel itself is located a few hundred metres from the beach, but they offer an electric car service every 5 minutes or so, for lazy tourists. Local entertainment was ok, although we missed it every second evening due to our trips. The room was OK, not too fancy but big enough and clean. Before getting there, our biggest concern was the safety. I even cancelled our rental car, just to stay on the safe side. Well, I guess first of all Playacar is a closed area where the access is controlled thoroughly. Second, being there we started to understand how things are in Playa del Carmen and the most important tourist locations: yes, you must keep focussed on safety, but you can also enjoy the pleasures of Yucatan in the same time. Decisions we made due to safety reasons: 1. cancelled the car rental for the whole period. - probably good idea, but we ended up anyway renting a car for the last day... 2. booked organized trips to Chichen Itza, Coba and Xel Ha 3. kept the kids always in sight All this being said, I have to admit we were a bit over cautious. Actually, the it felt somehow safer than Miami, at least from a European point of view. Things I'll remember about this trip: -amazing beach -nice warm people -scuba diving -Mayan culture (Chichen Itza, Coba etc.) More>

Amazing holiday

We visited this hotel in March 2016 , we stayed for two weeks and had an amazing time the staff are fantastic . The animation team work so hard and put on great shows . The food was good no complaints and no dodgy bellies .. The hotel is kept clean and our rooms were cleaned every day with lovely towel designs left on our bed .. It was my birthday while we were there and the cleaner made me a cake out of towels and decorated my room with balloons and streamers .. The only negative comment is that they allow large parties , we had some Spanish students that were training to be doctors and twice they pinched my daughters wheelchair to mess about in but security noticed and took it off them .. But that won't stop us returning next year .. And before I finish the Thompson reps were amazing nothing was too much trouble for them .. Can't wait to return .. Please riu don't modernize it More>
