Riu Tequila

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 Piata 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.

First time at an all-inclusive. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Great buffets, drinks and staff. Met people from the US and England. Enjoyed our visit and wish we could have stayed longer. Just a short taxi ride to 5th Avenue where you will find a bunch of shops and restaurants. Close to the beach. More>

We have just got back from the Riu tequila after a wonderful honeymoon. We loved the hotel and the area. The food was wonderful as are the cocktails. The Staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. The hotel is clean and tidy. Yes the rooms could do with a lick of paint but are room was very clean and the air con was good. The beach is beautiful, water sports are available to hire. The Thomson reps are excellent and are always available for advice throughout the day. We are hoping to return next year :-) More>

Very good hotel

Very popular hotel with Brits and Canadians as it seemed to be full for the two weeks I was there. First impression was that staff where very helpful and cheerful, which turned out to be the case throughout the holiday. Rooms are comfortable and clean,i have read other reviews saying that decor in the hotel is dated and tired not sure what those persons were expecting but painting was fresh and clean. Food very good with a wide and varied selection on the menu every day,well cooked and presented. ala cart restaurants available are the steak house, Mexican and Asian, as only used the Asian and steak house can only comment on those and found them very good in fact would say the steak house was better than very good. The Animation/Entertainment team are very good in fact the best i have seen for a long time they are certainly heard working and put time and effort into all they do, the shows that they put on of an evening where well presented and professional in all aspects. Well done. The only gripe i have( not a complaint ) is that the pool area is not big enough for the amount of guests that are catered for, and there is to much foliage ie trees and bushes around pool area creating a lot of shade. Also some of the wildlife should be caught and relocated to a more suitable habitat as there seems to be an overabundance of them and can be a nuisance around pool area. You have got the use of the sister hotels and the beach area over the road approximately 7minute walk or catch the golf buggy which Will take you to the Yucatan and beach. Over all i found the Tequila hotel a great hotel 300meters along the road from a small shopping arcade, and 5th avenue shops approximately 45 minutes walk away. It is comfortable and well run with very friendly and helpful staff and certainly to many to name on this review. It also has a lot of repeat visitors returning year on year so i believe this says a lot. And lastly can i say thank you to the TUI reps Rebecca and Mark for all there help More>

First visit & wont be our last

A beautiful 'la hacienda' style hotel that's kept immaculately clean & brilliantly maintained. It is in need of a paint job! I just hope they keep with tradition, over the modern style Yucatan & Playacar. The food is outstanding. Hats off to the chefs. So much choice every day, there really is no need to venture out to the speciality restaurants. However, BAMBOO is delicious! The pools - excellent. The beach - stunning, but more shade needed. The staff at the other 2 named hotels seem so much friendlier. Our pool bar guys & girls are fabulous (Florenceo & Fanny) but that's it!! Not the most polite main bar staff or waiters/waitress in the tequila. Animation - in comparison to the Riu Playacar seem less enthusiastic. (Or any other RIU we have stayed in) If the staff smiled, the waiters waited & the bar guys were friendly, this hotel would be a 5* in my opinion. More>
