Christmas 2009 – with family and friends and plenty of Sunny Days!
We have a nice stay there: it’s was a large hotel in a all inclusive basis, but with a good standard level. We stayed in a gigantic suite for 4 people. Food was good and the staff was nice and always gentle.
At Christmas Night we had a Special Dinner with a splendid buffet, for all tastes. And the decoration of the tables and dishes was perfect!
The hotel beach was bigger and the water very warm, but with some waves and with lots of people.
The Scuba Caribe crew was very friendly. We do great diving there, we went to Cozumel (one day tour) and we did the Shark Point dive - Bull Sharks (scary and delirious, but safe).
You can go walking from the hotel area to Playa del Carmen, almost 20 min long. But with kids it’s to rather to take a taxi.
We’ve been in Mexico to years ago, so we’ve just done Xcaret Park at night. It’s worthy!
It was a nice Christmas Holiday’s at beach and having fun in Riu Yucatan. I recommend you to go there definitely.
Until my next trip review.
