Riu Yucatan  

From its trio of pools to its luxury spa*, the beachside Riu Yucatan has a lot going for it.

Sandwiched between jungle-like greenery and a white ribbon of sand, the Riu Yucatan has a tropical setting. Still, the vibrant town of Puerto Del Carmen is only a 5-minute drive away.

The hotel just been refurbished, so bedrooms are fresh from the wrapping. The makeover gave them modern new colour schemes and big new flatscreen TVs.

Really good

Just literally got in from a 9 hour flight and 4 hour car journey... My honest opinion.... The resort is amazing... The staff are beyond hard working.... I saw them cleaning the bin bases and lamp posts on more then one occasion... I didn't realise how big the resort is with 507 rooms which is fine,what I did find hard to grasp is that the rui tequila and playacar can use the resort.... So basically they can pay £300 less at there resort to stay but then come and take up all the space... Make noise and fill the food halls which I think is unfair.... I feel I paid a premium so I didn't have to share with others who didn't pay for the privilege... Pro's Clean... New and swanky.... Staff amazing... Good food... Sea and beach are amazing... Chill out pool is nice... Great selection of drinks... Cons Lesser resorts can use it.... Mosquitoes are horrid.... Toilet door opens inwards so always a pain to get in and close the door after.... Main pool did get a bit loud and didn't spend a lot of time there.... Also the tiles around the pools are smooth so as soon as water is on them its like Bambi on ice,Bad design .... The excursions we done.... Captain hooks is amazing,expensive but worth it..... Coba Mayan ruins is a must for the historical folk,the climb is tough,you get to also go to a Mayan house and cenote as well,good day had by all.... Bar crawl was pretty lame up until 2 hours in coco bongos which is the most unreal experience ever in a good way,if you don't mind being squeezed right in and not planning on moving.... Xel-ha just amazing day full stop,tiring and can get a lot of mosquito bites and sun burn but worth it...More

So relaxing

Just returned from an amazing 2 week holiday. Hotel was beautiful are really modern and the staff were great, they work so hard all day every day. Checking in was quick and easy and even got a wee welcome drink. Rooms were lovely and clean and beds were massive. We brought mosquito repellent plug ins for the room which I think helped. We had 2 rooms together which was great for my wee girl as there was a main door leading into the 2 rooms so we could shut that and keep the 2 room doors open for my wee girl to jump between. Food was amazing loads of choice although like everything it's got repetitive, pancakes in the morning were amazing and my wee girl loved the ice cream that you could get all day. The waiters are so friendly and work so hard. We tried the Asian and steak house restaurants but I wasn't too impressed I preferred the buffet. Drinks were good and good to work down the drinks menu, my favourites were the mango daiquiri with brown rum and the scooby doo shots. The pools were lovely and clean we tried the main pool and the chill out pool but preferred the main one as there wasn't much of a breeze at the chill out. We always had the beds looking out to the sea as it was a beautiful view and nice breeze when it got to hot to lie out in. The beds in the pool were good to lie in and get a wee sun tan and stay cool as well. We went down every morning to the sea with some bread from the restaurant to feed the fish which my wee girl loved, the fish came right up and you could feel them around your legs. The entertainment staff are very welcoming and make you feel involved, they were brill with my wee girl. The entertainment at night wasn't great but they do their best. We were there for the Mexican Independence Day and was a brill day and night they had a beach party and had a games night and buffet by the pool, they had a piñata for the kids which they all loved. We visited the tequila hotel which was nice but much preferred the Yucatan overall we had an amazing holiday and would definitely returnMore
