Great vacations

It was a great hotel. Very clean, nice rooms. They changed towels every day, and cleaned the room nicely. We had a mini bar with different kind of alcohols, filled out every second day. The small fridge was fool of sodas and bottled water. The food was good, great selection of everything. The restaurant also provided different kind of dinners every day (Japanese, Italian etc.). The hotel amenities were very nice. The bars provided wonderful drinks till late at night. There was one open 24h/day. The hotel areas was beautiful. With many trees, palms, and bushes well kept! It was great to walk in the shades. The hotel was just beautiful, we would definitely come back!

Great time in Playa del Carmen

First time in Playa del Carmen, it was awesome! The hotel was beautiful. The people are great. A lot of European people but friendly, the only negative was it is not as close to the sea as you might think. I guess maybe one more thing too. 200 peso trip back and forth from 5th Avenida. We paid less than that to take a bus from Playa to Cancun. The resort is great, very fun and beautiful. We would go back again.

Very nice

Very nice and clean. Food was good but not exceptional. The rooms could use an update but that is not as important to me as how clean it was. Good value for the money. We had a really nice time. The beach was beautiful and the water was amazing.

our getway

Our stay at the riu tequila was great. The nightly shows were spectacular. The weather at this time of the year was warm & humid, but bearable. We spent a lot of time in the pool area with plenty of drinks at our disposable. We met a lot of people from England, Scotland & Ireland. The food at the buffets was good and plentiful. We will surely be back next year for yet, another great week of fun & relaxation. Thanks,
