Me and my boyfriend stayed in the riu yucatan in June 2014 and it was an amazing experience. Location, people,food,surroundings are all a dream ! Weather was perfect (but very humid). Only thing I could fault (nothing to do with hotel just personal opinion) for couples who want to relax it can be abit loud with kids around the pool... More

My boyfriend and I came to Mexico for the first time for 2 weeks in October 2014 (bit late writing this review!) and I can not speak highly enough of the hotel and Mexico. We booked and flew with Thomson from Gatwick. No delays at all there and back. This was my first long haul flight and the plane was... More

We stayed at the RIU Yucatan April 11-18, 2015. Travelled from Minnesota, US. My husband and I went with 2 other couples. We are in our low to mid thirties. We arrived about 4:00 pm. Check-in went very smooth. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and fun and handed us all welcome drinks. They had our rooms reserved and... More

Having recently returned from the yucatan I currently have the holiday blues. The hotel is definitely a great place and ideally located in what is a stunning part of the World. We stayed in block 7 which I would highly recommend. It wasn't too near the busy pool area and too near the jungle area which was riddled with Mosquitos.... More

What an excellent experience! We were at the Riu Yucatan (April 9-18) with our daughter’s wedding taking place on the beach on April 13th. I searched for information on TA regarding weddings at Yucatan prior to going there and couldn't find any so if you have questions about having a wedding there that I don’t answer here please feel free...

This hotel is great an we will definitely return. It is a great location on the beach, the facilities are great. The hotel is really lively, with good entertainment day and night, but it also has a quiet pool if you prefer. My only criticism is the rooms could be better, as although they have recently been refurbished it really... More

this is our 3rd visit to Mexico and our 1st to the Riu Yucatan. The flight over on the Dream liner was excellent. Cancun airport is a bit of a nightmare but you get through it. On arrival at the hotel, the check in was swift and we were welcomed with a cool drink. The rooms are large and spacious.... More

This is our third holiday to the Riu hotels in this area and our second to the Yucatan. We traveled earlier this time, at the end of January and the weather was good but not as hot as when we normally travel in April. It was cooler in the evenings and the pools were cold, although the sea was a... More

My fiance and I visited Mexico in April 2015. We came for my best friends wedding which was brilliant, all the staff at the Yucatan are so friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to help with the wedding preparations. Also the photographers that they have working with the hotel are fantastic, the pictures are beautiful! The only thing I... More
