Awesome hotel and no worries

If you want to stay somewhere where you do no need to think about paying for food/pool/fun this is the hotel for you. We took our 2 small daughters and they had a blast here. It's a family friendly hotel and a bus ride away from shopping. It is a newer hotel so it has more of a modern look to it. We are planning on going back.

If you want to upgrade your room do it when you are booking and ask to see the room before to see if you like it. We upgraded to the 10th floor with the hot tub on the balcony (honeymoon suite and the highest level for this room) we had an amazing view of the hotel and beach.

Do not go there!!!

Staff very rude and not experienced. People smoke everywhere including pool and restaurant. No one pay attention if you have kids. Annoying policy when you change the room and they keep you half a day without the room and access to your belongings. They lie. At the lobby of the hotel are scammers who are authorized by the hotel to sell taxi and attraction trips. People offer the trips and use fliers of other companies. Manager of the hotel said we have to be happy if someone provides any service to us. We were in two room and jacuzzi doesn't work properly. Hotel has a problem with water pressure. Very low quality of food. Don't be surprised if you get diarrhea. Pool is in bad condition, ceramic tiles are flooding all over, especially at Trinidad Pool (Bar Pool). You wont find a cold beer anywhere. They don't use refrigeration, but bucket of the ice. Problem with ventilation. Corridors are very poorly ventilated and not conditioned. Floor in the room is ceramic and when you open the door from the balcony, air conditioning stops working what causes the condensation of the humidity on the floor. That makes conditions very slippery. People brake so many rules, and hotel is very weak with security. This is not place to go, especially with kids. Dont go to the Crystal Restaurant- terrible service, and poor food. Don't be amazed by decoration and interior design.

dont buy anything in the hotel. between riu hotels you have small market where you can buy all gifts and souvenirs and pharmacy- much cheaper than in the hotel. For example, price for ruffles chips is 12 US Dollars in the hotel. In market is much much cheaper. Don't buy any trips from scammers (travel agents) in the lobby.

Awesome resort

This hotel is very new. Nice cool A/C in lobby and since its is so new, the rooms a/c was also awesome. The specialty restaurants are great. Make sure you reserve early every day. Still, the buffet is more than perfect and plentiful for the most demanding. The beaches are nice with a mix of rocks and sand. Rocks will enhance your pictures and there are no big waves, perfect for little kids.

Try Mercado 28, you can get there by bus on R2 or in a cab with no more than 100 Pesos per way. You will find the best prices for handcrafts and souvenirs.

A++++

Friendly staff and a perfect place to unwind. The amenities were great including all the restaurants. However, upon check-in I would recommend that everyone make reservations to the restaurants that require such reservations as they fill up pretty fast in advance. The Buffett and Italian restaurant don't require reservations and are always a good option. Drinks were fantastic with premium liquor. I can't stress enough how friendly the staff where! Simply amazing and always wiling to go the extra mile. Highly recommend this hotel and will be back!!

Very Nice

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful hotel and staff. Everyone goes out of their way to please. There were only two things I would change. 1. By the time you check into your room, there are no restaurant reservations left. I emailed reservation requests before coming, but they are not accepted. We ate buffet, which was very good, every night until our last night. This was very disappointing. 2. The room is very difficult to keep cool in such a humid environment in June. The hallways and elevators are not air conditioned. This was very uncomfortable to get ready or sleep while sweating. Room service is a little hit and miss, but the staff was just fabulous. I'm not sure about any of the animal shape towels. We never saw those. The Cancun airport was very nice. The transportation booked through This site was fantastic. We never felt unsafe. The trip was a huge success. Will definitely return to Cancun but may stay closer to shopping next time. $13 cab to closest shopping.

Wonderful place

Stayed 5 nights at this very nice and clean hotel resort. The food was plentiful and varied. The staff aimed to please in all areas. Tropical drinks were a tad too sweet but there were always other options to choose from. Everyone seemed to have to same goal --- to treat everyone as the "only " guest. Our wish was their command! As for the area--the location was okay as far as on the beach but compared to some of the other hotels which we're closer to flea markets and general souvenir shopping--this one was pretty far removed from those locales. We did take a bus that cost each of us $1 each way so certainly there was no major investment in getting places. We really didn't explore options to party outside the hotel or go to other bars.
