Great anniversary trip

Would recommend Fri, Jan 15, 2016
Resort and room was very clean. Great beach, cleanest beach around, they really did great with upkeep on it. Drinks were good, if you want stronger drinks just ask for a double is all. It was nice to have a fridge in the room with water, pop, beer, and hard liquor to mix anytime you want. Safe in room with no charge to use was nice too, some resorts we heard charge extra. Staff were happy and willing to do what it takes. Food was good but not great. You could always find a chair to sit or lay on at the pool or beach. They had activities to do during the day at pool and evening shows they put on.

Good vacation spot

Would recommend Mon, Oct 19, 2015
The place is beautiful. There are many people taking care of the grounds at all times. Wait staff clearing and cleaning immediately. Food is plentiful. Drinks are good. Pools are nice but shallow and once you're in them don't look in the water. The rooms have a modern appearance but when there long enough you notice the little things. Minibar (fridge) has to be adjusted to be cold. And when I asked for more beverages, was told it was only done at certain times and could not be brought to room. Several rooms have a smell to them. The food in the main buffets are exactly the same every day in each RIU I entered in the hotel zone. Definitely need to make reservations for dinner at the other resturants if you want something better. Nice shopping area and Starbucks with free wifi just a 10 minute walk away. Beach and view of Caribean Sea is amazing, especially at sunrise. All in all, even though some things were not the best the place is still nice and a good place to stay. I would stay there again.

Short, but nice

Would recommend Fri, Aug 14, 2015
Very enjoyable for a short get away. Very humid time of the year (Aug) with little a/c. Great staff, pools, fishing, and transportation. The main buffet was excellent but the specialty restaurants somewhat disappointing.

Amazing Getaway!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2015
My boyfriend and I went the first week of June and had no problems with this resort. It was our first time traveling together and wanted something fun. Riu Yucatan was just the place! It was our first time here and loved it. The staff was really inviting and nice and the resort was clean. The Riu Fun staff was an awesome bonus to the resort and we were never bored. No problems with reservations, room, staff, pool, etc. The beach had a lot of seaweed but that is due to later rain season. My boyfriend and I would love to come back here and would recommend it to anyone!

Great value for the Money

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
My stay at the Riu Yucatan was wonderful. The staff is very friendly. The activity coordinators have a lot of energy and really do their very best to make sure everyone has fun. The rooms were very spacious. The shower set up is a bit odd. The toilet is in a separate room, but the shower and sink are not enclosed, which wouldn't be a problem if the shower was not clear glass. Makes it a bit awkward to shower if you are staying in a room with friends. The food overall was good as were the drinks. I felt for what I paid I got a good value. I would definitely stay at Riu Yucatan again.

Really nice

Would recommend Mon, Feb 16, 2015
Loved this hotel. Service was unbeatable, they were at your beck and call. The cute monkeys in the trees were a cheerful little surprise. The food was generally pretty good. The meat wasn't good though. The employees at the pool were so upbeat and nice. Everything was comfortable and clean. Beds a little hard but you got used to them.

Good experience

Would recommend Sat, Oct 11, 2014
The location of the hotel is amazing. It is only a 25 min walk from Playa del Carmen's 5th avenue. Staff was friendly, food was amazing and of course the beach was the best. Food from the buffet was very good. The menu from the reserved restaurants could be better. I was expecting a more gourmet experience like other All-inclusive hotels, but it was fine. I would recommend this hotel, and I am hoping to return to Riu Yucatan for future vacations.

Money saver

Book the tours at Playa del Carmen or at the PlayaCar Plaza kiosk. They are much cheaper that do it in the hotel or even by doing it online.
