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 was recently refurbished, so bedrooms are really fresh. The makeover gave them modern new colour schemes and big new flatscreen TVs.

Friendly, brilliant staff. Excellent Hotel on beach.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in March 2016. The rooms are clean, bright come with air conditioning , flat screen TV, optics & fridge, frequently replenished. Also have hair dryer , iron & ironing board . (Not that you want to spend time ironing in this beautiful paradise). Rooms cleaned daily. The staff are so friendly & welcoming & nothing is too much trouble. The beach is a tropical paradise with only an occasional vendor selling Cigars & Jewellery but are not intrusive. Plenty of water sports & daily yoga . Great variety of food and very clean restaurants. Would highly recommend this hotel. There are shops in 5th Avenue which is only a 10-15 minute drive away or can be walked to.More

Great location

Just returned from a two week stay at the Riu Yucatan. The hotel is in a fantastic location on the beach and you feel so safe staying in Playacar. The hotel looks great and has a great lobby and nice pools. Not so great is that the facilities are used by other Riu hotel across the road and it can get very manic at lunchtimes - reminded me of a school canteen. The room was basic, but looked ok. Branded drinks available if you asked for them, though the food was very repetitive -especially at lunchtimes.More
