I just got back from 6 nights in the Riu Tequila on a ten night trip we stayed three nights at the Riu, three nights in Akumal, back to the Riu for another three nights, and then one last night in the very southern end of Cancun. We all really loved the Riu and couldn't wait to get back there... More

Spent the first two weeks in July at the Tequila, and overall it was excellent. Worth noting, the hotel was considerably fuller in the second week but it didn't impact on the excellent bar and restaurant service. As reviewed by others; food is good and drinks package excellent. Couple of downsides-the evening entertainment prior to 9.30pm was aimed at children... More

This hotel has it all: every room has its own bar, the pool and it's surroundings with the pool bar, the 24/7 open sports bar (yes, you are able to watch Premier League although at 6 am), proper glasses for the drinks (you MUST try their Mojitos) and small raccoons within the hotel area. The hotel is located some 300... More

I thought the place was very clean...room very nice & I call myself a hotel snob! They have kept this place up so well. I absolutely love the... More

Room was nice, clean and well maintained on a daily basis. This resort has a lush tropical feel ... exotic and manicured! Loved the outdoor bar...very social!!! Food was... More

Beautiful medium ground with lot of vegetation. The pool and the restaurants are well placed. The pool places are well organized with sufficient shade. Professional staff and friendlier than Palladium (reception, restaurants, bars...) The food is ok. The resort is 10 min walk from the beach. Little train is always full. No parasol on the beach. Only small shade is... More
