Friendly beach side all inclusive

Great scenery, beautiful beach, friendly staff. Food was ok, nightly entertainment was ok. All inclusive, so you don't have to worry about extra cash anywhere in the resort.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Book excursions through one of the stand alone kiosks in the nearby shopping center. Their prices are much cheaper than online or the sales reps that set up shop in the resort's reception area.

Short, but nice

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.

Wonderful vacation!

The location was amazing, the staff was great. Had such a wonderful holiday! The food was not good and the beds were really uncomfortable but those things didn't really matter because everything else was so good. I would definitely recommend this resort and I would absolutely go back! Felt very safe and welcome.

A Good Vacation

Riu Yucatan provides a good value to the vacationer. Location is excellent, so close to Playa Del Carmen but removed from the yahoos in town. Having said that, we did encounter loud/drunk individuals at the resort (singing and yelling at 3, 4 and 5am!) and the staff appeared indifferent to the noise. The food was o.k. with the Mexican restaurant being the best. Mixed crowd from Mexico/Europe provided great people watching opportunities. Beach is wonderful. Be careful at the buffet . . . food-crazed humans appeared to forget manners as they stampeded through the food lines running into others without regard or recognition. With these few criticisms aside, we had a wonderful week at the resort. Definitely a great value for your money! Next year, however, we will look for a more quiet and remote resort.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Prices for things at/near the resort were much too expensive compared with stores in Playa.

Not exceptional but not bad

Nice beach, friendly staff, choice of trips, clean room, quick service, easy access to everything. Could use better menu, not all foods equally edible, some very good, some not so. Mosquitoes. Beware of mosquitoes! Wireless in the main reception area only, not in rooms. "10 minute walk to town" is more like 25 minutes, but safe area, makes a nice walk or a jog.

Great Service

food was wonderful - staff were wonderful - only thing I would change would be the inability to be flexable. Not willing to change rooms even with prior request to check in - will not tolorate any horseplay - if with teenagers may want to find another place.

great resort & location

This was our 2nd time visiting Playacar, last time staying at their palace resort. The Yucatan is a very nice resort.  The decor had a warm inviting Mexican feel.  This resort had one of the nicer strips of beach compared to the others in this location. A pleasant 20 minute walk to Town or $5 cab ride. Would recommend.

Awesome location, Great Price

Check-in was speedy, no wait. Bar staff and waitstaff very friendly. Nightly entertainment was awesome, entertainment director was great. Right on the beach and you can get beach chairs anytime of the day. Food was always hot and more than enough selection available. The way the hotel is laid out, you do not feel as though you are at a resort that has 507 rooms. The mini bar in room was great and when you check-in, they do tell you that it is restocked every other day, but you really are not in the room enough to drink more than what they supply.
