ClubHotel Riu Tequila  

Surrounded by tropical greenery, the Riu Tequila has a secluded setting and a great pool scene.

Tucked inside a palm grove in the quiet resort of Playacar, the Riu Tequila is a retreat. It only takes 5 minutes to walk to a peaceful platinum-shine beach from here.

This hotel is in a relaxed part of the Caribbean Coast. When you want to up the tempo, the colourful resort of Playa del Carmen is a 5-minute drive away.

Honeymoon heaven

Lovely hotel . Lovely staff .great food .cocktails amazing ....racoon type animals everywhere that love alcohol so gard your drinks or they come and knock them over to drink them,the pool was lovely beds in the sun but also palm trees for shade. Room a bit damp smelling but so clean and towel art everyday kept me amused. ....apart of rui hotels so spent a lot of time in rui yucatan amazing as on the beach and had growler monkings in the trees so lovely to see. Would go back it was just the air port madness that takes so long to get out with a very laid back Mexican way took about an hour after landing to step outside and after a long flight it wasn't very nice but the departure was very modern and completely different to the arrivals. Would defo go back.More

Jacqueline R,


Excellent hotel for families and seeing as this is the 5th time staying here I never tire of this hotel. Staff are excellent as is the food and drink and all facilities Can't wait for next year!! Gonna try the hotel over New Year's Eve We look around every year for our holiday but always end up here as we know we are definitely gonna have a real good break Over in the sister hotel you can use the facilities and seeing as it's right on the beach it's even more ideally located Howler monkeys fly through the trees and local wildlife strolls through the grounds which is really nice to seeMore

Had a great vacation

We just returned from a week at the Riu Tequila. We had a wonderful time. Staff were friendly. Food was good. There was plenty to choose from. I think the Asian night at the buffet was our favorite, (Sushi was excellent!) The pools are nice and the beach is beautiful! If you want good coffee, get it at the sports bar. More

Mikaela T,

Food was amazing!

Overall: ~In my personal opinion all Riu hotels especially in Playa Del Carmen are wonderful! It was a very spacious hotel with many amenities! Food was incredible! The pool's were very big and spacious! Nightly entertainment is one of the best! Pro's: ~Very spacious comfortable rooms, they would always come in and clean our room,refill the wet bar,leave very beautiful towel creations, overall amazing room's with amazing views. ~Food was absolutely incredible! We never felt the need to leave the buffet as it was always filled with food's to our like and endless possibilities.However, we did go to the restaurant by the pool it was very nice but very limited when it came to options. ~Pool was very fun! They had miniature soccer nets and basketball hoops. There was two separate pools {one intended for kids the other intended for adults} They were conveniently placed right next to each other. Which is great when traveling with a family. ~Staff were super kind and always looked forward to helping you.Although I will say entertaining staff wasn't very fun during the day's and didn't offer very fun games. Con; ~While the entertainment was great it very much bothered me that everywhere you went other than indoors there was someone smoking a cigarette! Especially in the nightly entertainment! If you have kids most likely they won't be fans of the smell! ~Overall great hotel just not a very kid friendly one. HEADS UP: This hotel is NOT on a beach however it is extremely close to one {less then 5 minute walk} Plus there is always a golf cart going back and forth.More

leafy, laid back and friendly.

We loved the laid back, shady and friendly feel of this hotel. All bedrooms are set away from the action in the well managed gardens. It may not be as shiny and new as the other Riu hotels in the area but it does have a Mexican feel and some character.The choice of food was excellent and the standard pretty high.Every member of staff went out of their way to be helpful and always had a cheery smile. It is due to be refurbished, I just hope they keep the character and vibe. The pool area has both quiet and active areas. The Tequilla is set back from the beach but it is only a 5 minute walk or there is a golf cart running backwards and forwards most of the day for those who don`t want to walk. You can have lunch at any of 3 Riu hotels. In less than half an hour you can walk into the town of Playa Del Carmen or to the highway and a modern shopping mall. We thouroughly enjoyed our 3 weeks here and felt it was excellent value for what we paid.More
