Great Facilities at this Hotel, but with the rooms lacking behind somewhat. Communal areas are great and very clean. Plenty of pools, and service throughout was generally very good. Right on the beach which was gorgeous. Activities around the pool everyday to keep you entertained, but you could get away from this if you wanted to. The rooms were not...

We went for a 2 week stay at Riu Yucatan and have to say it was amazing! The hotel, safe and location were fantastic and honestly can't find a fault. We got married on the beach and everything was perfect. I would honestly recommend this hotel.

Just returned from an amazing 2 weeks in Mexico. The Riu Yucatan was a lovely hotel for the money you pay. Check in - after being delayed for an hour and a half coming out, to then traffic on the way to the hotel we were absolutely exhausted after travelling for nearly 24 hours door to door. On arrival it...
