Beautiful hotel with great service

This was a beautiful hotel. Lots of food and places to get drinks. Only draw back was the walk to the beach. It's not very far but the tram was only available 8-1 3-6. Room was nice and cool & the mini fridge was always stocked. Only complaint was the wi-fi. In this day and age most hotels offer it all day not just 90 min. And it wasn't a good signal

vacation

we have had a great time at Tequila. Great stuff, comfort, amenities. Jalisco restarant was great too unlike Lupita one. Ocean was great but quite stormy - there was either red or yellow flag all the time. use KinMont transfer company from and to airport - the best in terms of price and comfort. it cost me $100 round trip for family of four. if you are going to Dolfins Adventure be ready to shell out $143 for fotos and video only and $120-150 for Adventure itself. this price for one person. but hotel itself was outstanding!

Great hotel

Great hotel. Friendly staff. Room was simple but very clean. 5-7 min walk to the beach and very close to Playa de Carmen (about 10 min drive). The other reviews are very accurate.

Best vacation ever!

This was are 2nd time in Playa del Carmen. W absolutely love this place. The Riu Tequila resort was amazing, so as the workers and the service. We had no 1 complain the whole tired time. The food was more than anybody can wish for and the taste just amazing!!!:-))) We would definitely recommend the Riu Tequila to everybody who loves Mexican style , people and an amazing beach. Oh .. by the way - This resort doesn't have a beach on the resort. You will have to walk ( 5 min-8 min) or take the little open bus/train to the beach. It did not bother us to walk at all. Achli we felt it was refreshing and beautiful!!!!:-))
