I travelled here with my boyfriend at the end of July 2013 and stayed for two weeks, this was our second visit to Cancun but our first stay in the Riu. We previously stayed in the Barceló Costa, however for the same price as the Barceló the Riu is 10 x better value for money, couldn't ask for anything more.
As there were a lot of people to check in at once when we arrived we were taken to a room to check in at once, whilst given refreshments etc, this took no more than 10 minutes and we were on our way to the rooms.
After reading reviews from before I went I have to admit I was a bit worried with some of the bad comments about the food etc as my boyfriend is a fussy eater, however there was literally NOTHING to worry about. The food was fab, fresh every single day; breakfast lunch and dinner! The drinks were to die for and could literally drink as many different cocktails as you could handle!
Location is perfect, with the main strip being a 5 min walk away with restaurants and clubs etc.
As for the cleanliness of the hotel, it was spotless.. rooms were cleaned every single day with fresh towels. Only one thing I could say as a bad point is that the bed sheets could have been changed a bit more often.
The rooms were a tad dated and could do with a little modern update considering the standards of the other Riu hotels however this did not matter much.
The four pools were equally as good with a different atmosphere in each for different types of people.. the pool bar being the most liveliest .. obviously.
Overall, couldn't fault the hotel or the staff and would definitely recommend people visiting this hotel!
