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.

Authentic Mexican Hotel
Wendy H, Burlington, Canada

Stayed at the Riu Tequila in January - what a great place. Although not on the beach it is only approx. a 5 or 6 minute walk if you don't take the shuttle. The shuttle is very often full but the walk is pleasant. The beach is beautiful and it is where we spent most of our time. Although the pool area is attractive it is a bit crowded and hard to get a lounger. Preferred the lunch buffet at the beach to the one at the pool area. The buffet at the main restaurant is amazing for breakfast and dinner. So much selection and catering to so many tastes. I really appreciated the vegetarian section which offered a huge variety of food at dinner time. I would go back to the Tequila in a heartbeat. It is a little dated in someways but far more authentic than some of the other hotels along the beach strip. There is talk of the hotel being renovated ..... I say don't please! The only renovations should be fresh paint. A good priced hotel with great food, a fantastic beach and lovely grounds around the resort, along with perfect weather, what more do you want!!

Perfect honeymoon

What a beautiful traditional hotel. Everything spotlessly clean, and staff so helpful and friendly. 3 minute walk from beach, lots of animals around local if you like them. Perfect for couples or families. We went on honeymoon but would certainly take our children here. Plenty of choice of food and drinks and also have access to other hotels for drinks and food. Highly recommended
