family friendly,quiet

The Riu Lupita is a small family friendly hotel. This hotel is not on the beach, there is transportation to their beach club every half hour. There is animation around the pool all day and at one occasion during the week, the animation team do a beach party at the hotel beach club. I have to say the food was very good. There is only a buffet retaurant and only 1 a la carte estaurant. Unfortunitly both are open, so no air conditioning...last stay in june was very very uncomfortable at lunch and diner because of the hot weather. Bedrooms are very small and old. Bathroom is really tiny. Nignt shows are ok. some good some just ok.

Dont eat the bacon!

The stay was merely satisfactory. We had to wait almost an hour for the buffet to be replenished. I also found hair fried into the bacon duing breakfast. The front staff's response was, Oh sorry about that!

Feels like a Neighborhood

We stayed 4 nights here and then 4 nights at an entirely different hotel in Cancun. We would definitely go back to Riu Lupita. It had a very friendly ambiance as one walks outside to all the amenities, and all the dining facilities are outside too. It is modest and not very fancy, but this was fine with us. I was impressed with the food selection and the entertainment every night was great. A shuttle takes guests to the downtown area or the beach or near one of their other hotels every half hour. This actually became fun to explore other areas. One felt a part of a private community and we got to know quite a few of the other guests who tended to be from all over the world.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Take the shuttle to the downtown drop off and then walk into 5th Avenue. Keep going as the further North one walks, the nicer it becomes with lovely shops, bars, and dining.

GOOD LOCATION CLOSE ENOUGH TO EVERYTHING

RIU LUPITA IS IN A GOOD LOCATION TO SHOPPING AND THEY MAKE IT VERY EASY TO GET TO THE BEACH AND OTHER AREAS IN THE SURROUNDING AREA. IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN THE OTHER RIU HOTELS BUT IF YOU TAKE ADVANTAGE AND VISIT THE OTHER HOTELS ITW WELL WORTH THE SMALL WALK OR FREE TROLLEY RIDE
