We have stayed in most of the Riu Hotels. this is one of the first to be built in Mexico. We stayed over New Year and for our wedding aniversary, the food is out of this world. The staff are very friendly and the entertainment team should receive medals! The activities programme is full with lots of stuff going on all day and the evening entertainment is excellent. My kids were safe and I was comfortable with the kids club.
My husband and friends used the gym which was well equipped and booking at the spa was easy, we had massages at the beach which were very good
The beach streches for miles and is great for long walks and getting to the ferry port for trips to Cozumel. we also swam with the dolphins which was a fab experiance even for the little ones.
As we were leaving the last few nights the hotel started to fill up with younger groups who were loud until the early hours, which didn't bother us however did bother the friends we travelled with as thier room was near to the 24 hour bar at reception.
The only downside for us was the beds - they were really hard and uncomfortable, also the hotel would benefit from sea view rooms. Other than that would recommend.
