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.

Warmly greeted on arrival and instantly made to feel welcome, allocated upstairs room, which due to disabilities was no good. The Bellboy RAN back to reception, came back in under two minutes, escorting us to a downstairs room in a great location. The whole experience was great, food, entertainment, Staff were brilliant, having researched prior to leaving, we brought a travel kettle to make coffee/tea. I would recommend this hotel highly, to families or couples. Hopefully we will get back for more, Gracias Amigos!

Another great stay

This was our 5th visit to the Riu Tequila. Once again we had no complaints. We took our 10 year old daughter with us this time. Arrived early and our room wasn't ready yet but did everything they could to get us in early. Had requested a room in block 21, second floor and that's exactly what we were given. Room was same, dated yes but always very clean and cool. Resort itself was immaculate as previous years. Love the grounds. Staff ALWAYS friendly and will do anything for you. This goes for all staff. Restaurants I can't say much as we only did the buffet and it was good every night. My daughter did a few trips to the kids club which she enjoyed and kept her busy. Beach not much to say. It's great. I hear they are doing a Reno, would be nice if they kept the old Mexican charm. Will definitely return again.

Brilliant Again

Spent 10 nights at the Riu Tequila from 29th April 2017-9th May. Check - In on arrival was painless with a warm greeting from Joshua at reception who recognised us from a previous holiday. We were given a room as requested prior to our visit which was great, near all ammenities and overlooking the golf course. Having been twice before we immediately got down to enjoying our holiday knowing where all the bars and resturants were and seeing a few familiar faces at each. The food was good and drinks plentiful. We visited the Steakhouse on a number of occasions as well as the Lupita cocktail bar given ample cocktails by Florencio. We were looked after by Edgar in the main restaurant who always made sure our glasses were topped up with 'fluids!' The evening entertainment was its usual high standard and the hotel staff worked tirelessly to ensure we had a fantastic holiday. Thank-you We will be back soon...........

It is excellent but there are a couple of minor down sides to the hotel. Firstly there are no coffee facilities in the rooms which is a miss so if going take your own travel kettle etc. Secondly the speciality restaurants are more or less served at some point in the main buffet restaurant so pointless going to the speciality bit. You can choose Asian which I thought was average, Mexican which is at the Yucatan hotel and I thought was poor or the steak restaurant. That aside the good points.....everything else. The staff are superb and can't do enough for you. Even when leaving they were all very polite and even asked if we wanted to keep our wristbands for drinks until 12 check out time. The entertainment staff are brilliant and give their all, always smiling and working very hard all the time regardless of how hot it was....and boy was it hot !!! The food in the main buffet restaurant was excellent throughout with a huge range. The rooms were great...very big and the beds very comfortable. They are not modern but if you stayed at the other RIU hotels which are very modern, they could be any hotel anywhere in the world. The Tequilla can only be a Mexican hotel. The pool was constantly being cleaned and although dated well maintained. The bar staff again worked tirelessly to serve. There is nothing to complain about.
