This was our second time at the hotel and it was as good as the first time. The hotel is situated a 5 minute walk form a small set of shops and about 5 minutes to the beach. The rooms are nicely presented although the beds are a tad uncomfortable. The minibar for soft drinks is filled every 2 days... More

My wife and I came to Playa the week of July 27 2014, as part of a group of friends and relatives, total 10 people. The trip was booked through Lomas travel and we flew out of San Antonio, TX. Transportation to the hotel from Cancun (and back on the return trip) was via a mini-bus dedicated to our group.... More

We stayed at the Riu Tequila from the 29th July til 12th August 2014 for a very reasonable all inclusive price. In advance I had asked for a first floor room close to reception and, on arrival, found that the room was what I had requested. Check in was straightforward with a nice drink on arrival, with towel cards etc.... More

This was our first trip to Mexico and definitely wont be our last! The staff were all attentive and couldn't do enough to help you. The hotel is beautiful and the grounds are stunning. Our room was beautiful and kept gorgeously clean. We couldn't fault the food or drinks and the distance to the beach is no drama! I would... More

We stayed at the Riu Tequila the first 2 weeks in July. From start to finish it was a fantastic break with very little to fault. The hotel is made up of a series of apartment blocks leading away from the reception area and circling the pools so the place feels spacious. The rooms are comfortable and roomy and spotlessly...
