My boyfriend and I went there around 2 years ago and we just cant stop thinking about this wonderful hotel! We celebrated his bday and the staff at the hotel prepared his favourite breakfast and they left wine at the room the night before! I dont think I will ever try another hotel at playa, it was the most amazing... More

Excellent service, clean, and close to everything. My wife and I stayed a total of 6 nights and loved every night here. It was close to all the night life and some excellent eateries. The beach was just a short walk away and the staff was more than helpful with beach towels and a pass for an umbrella at mamitas... More

We had a great experience at Riviera del Sol. The staff is helpful and friendly, they gave as very useful information about trips and restaurants. The continental breakfast was awesome: abundant, nutritious, varied and tasty. The pool was great because it has a kiddie section separated from the deep one. The decoration was charming and the whole ambiance was pleasant.... More

We choose this place to relax after our car trip around Yucatan, it was perfect for this. A few steps and you're on AV. 5 with all the restaurants, bars and stores, maybe a 3 min walk to the beach, the hotel gives you vouchers so you can use Mamitas Beach Club, you're allowed to take your pool towels to...

I discovered this little hotel a couple of years ago via a Google search. I liked the website, the pictures and after reading a couple of reviews I decided it was worth the risk. Oh my was it worth it! My wife and I loved it at first sight and now whenever we travel to Playa we stay at Riviera... More

The hotel is even better than I expected. Beautiful, very clean, and very, very pleasant. Nice amenities with WIFI, a must for us. All are very friendly and helpfu, especially Gabriella at the front desk. Your room comes with a couple of cocktails, and a yoga class if you wish. Also included are beach towels, beach chairs and an umbrella... More

One can spend hundreds of dollars to stay at the mega resorts on the beach. Or you can stay here at this very charming and clean hotel with a peaceful oasis of a courtyard only a couple minutes walk from the beach. Rooms were large, clean, and very comfortable. The pool in the courtyard was nice and the staff was... More

We're on our stay here right now as I write the review, sadly the reviews we read when we booked do not tell the whole picture or we would not have booked it. We knew this area had an active nightlife, but that was an understatement, and reports of bars and clubs closing at 11-12 at might was not true.... More

OVERVIEW! We spent 6 nights at RDS in April. Check in was a breeze, we only received 1 room key and a key for the safe but this was fine. We planned our flight to arrive in PDC around 3pm, standard check in time. During the week we noticed a few people being led to their rooms way before this... More
