This was our 3rd visit to the Tequila but felt the need to review it once again after reading a certain review over the last few days!! We were at the tequila from the 8th to the 22nd July - family of 3. We were in fact some of the "chavs" as described in a previous review - can i... More

We had a great family holiday here at the end of June for 11 nights. Private transfer got us to the hotel in about 40 minutes where we were greated with a fruit punch and after the usual checking in process were very soon in our rooms. Second floor towards the left rear corner looking towards the pool. Rooms tidy... More

Did not know what to expect...all I can say is that it is truly amazing, the hotel, food, staff .... super duper, can not fault it. The staff work extremely hard to cater for your individual needs even though they work for £6 a day! The beach is exactly what you see in photos...white sands, palm trees, clear warm sea,... More

Just came back from a 2 week stay here! Arrived here on 16th July, after an easy flight and warm welcome at Cancun airport. Only an hour transfer which soon flew by! I travelled as a family of 4, me being the eldest daughter and I was excited as I chose this resort myself (due to reviews and awesome pictures!)... More

The Riu Tequlia is about a 10 minute leisurely walk to the glorious beach shared with the Riu Yucatan and Riu Palace hotels. Very traditional Mexican architecture, unlike the other two hotels mentioned. But it is due a make over and I hope they don't remove it's character. The accommodation was very good and thank goodness for aircon. The staff... More

This was my fifth stay in the Playacar area over the last five years. I was extremely disappointed with the Tequila compared to the other resorts I have visited in Playa. The check in process was easy, we were greeted with the usual welcome drink. Our room wasn't ready so we headed to the 'lobby' bar for some drinks and... More

Stayed here from 8th - 23rd July with my wife and 15 year old son. Firstly I wanted to say that this is a great hotel for the money and overall we had a good time - met some really nice people. Deciding on a rating was really tough for me since I don't think it fair to mark the... More

I have just returned from two weeks holiday with my husband and daughter. All of the staff were very friendly and could not do enough to ensure that we had a fantastic holiday. The hotel is like a small village with the rooms in small two story blocks that are spaced around the grounds. I was worried that it might... More

We had a great time at the Riu Tequila! The hotel is not directly on the beach, it is a 5 minute walk and there is often a golf cart in the lobby that will take guests to the beach. THE BEACH IS MAGNIFICENT!! The sister hotel Riu Yucatan is on the beach and you can use their pool and... More
