The food isn't the greatest at any restaurant.. they are all mostly ala cart.. The beach is great... the bar service on beach is just about non existence .. Being able to go to the other riu resorts is a bonus.. they are all within 5 minute walk.. Food at Yucatan riu at the buffet was better than playa car. Riu Yucatan has money's monkeys at the resort very cool to see and feed..

Food is great, people is amazing and the weather and views more than perfect.

It’s all in one spot

The resort is in Playacar in a great location right across from shopping center. Food was decent but other than that I was not impressed. Pool area became very dirty throughout the day. Felt very crowded. Chairs on top of each other. Rooms need some updates. Showers and sinks take forever to drain. Night life was the worst part. This resort has absolutely nothing indoors, no indoor bars so on a rainy night or very hot nights it’s not very enjoyable. Shows were lame. No nightlife. The only saving grace was being able to go over to the RIU Tequila which had an indoor sports bar and the show area turned into a disco a few nights a week.

Seems nice and quiet for families but I feel entertainment at night on stage could be better

Had a wonderful 7 night stay. The property is kept very clean. The staff are all very friendly and work hard, and front desk staff was very professional and courteous. The location of the property is excellent with a shopping center in front across the street. You can take a nightly stroll and area is gated and safe at all times.

this vacation was exellent .Thank you and see you soon

Staff was awesome.

Good service good food Good service at the beach

The resort was rather small compared to other properties in the area. However, being able to go to two other properties made up for this. The only negative is that they did not have a smoke free complex. I would wake up every morning smelling cigarette smoke. Going to such a wonderful place should not be impeded by smelling this. These resorts should provide the choice of a smoke free experience for the rooms.

This is the second time we stay at Riu Playacar. We like it because it's quiet and chill since it is in a private residential area. Rooms and place are clean and staff is great. They have so many food options and a different show every night.

We traveled with a kid in February 2022. Simple layout. Lots of seaweed. Huge waves for seven days. Doctor consultation $180, just a consultation. Clean but very simple. Nothing special. We will not coming back to this resort. Iryna.

Lovely facility

What a great family vacation to Playa del Carmen and RIU Playacar. This was my third stay at the resort and the first with our two boys. We had a wonderful stay and thank the hotel and staff for their efforts in keeping everyone safe.

The pools are extremely cold, rooms are smelly, broken lights, didnt get drinks to my room not even water for 3 days. Didnt meet my expectations.

Excellent service!! Great food and very clean establishment!! Will go back!!

I like the location but the Asian food was not good
