Excellent Beach

The Riu Cancun overall was a very good hotel. The Beach was probably one of best I've been to (and I travel often to the Caribbean). The pools were fantastic! There were a lot of dining options. Although the food was good, I would prefer more Authentic Mexican Food, they offered mostly American food. I stayed in the Junior Deluxe Suite. It had an extraordinary view. However, overall, I had a fantastic time and would definitely go back!

Very Romantic, A great place to spend your vacation with your mate

Riu Cancun was a great hotel experience from start to finish. Check in was awesome and check out was just as great. The staff was very welcoming and the guest were as well. I went with my boyfriend and this was his first international trip and he is hooked as a result of the experience that we had. I would recommend this hotel to anyone: couples, singles and families.

AMAZING!!

Our stay at the Riu Cancun was absolutely wonderful. The staff there could not have been better. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with beautiful views of the ocean. The food was very good, with lots of choices. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone, and can't wait to go there again!

Affordable Luxury

We always stay at the Riu of Cancun (several years in a row). The staff is extremely friendly, the food is great, the service is A+! It has a nice large beach, and it's walking distance to Coco Bongo's. We love the Riu chain of resorts. We have stayed at the Riu at other tropical locations and we have never been disappointed. They have always met above and beyond our expectations. The bonus is they are very affordable.
