Recently got back from staying at the Riu Cancun and enjoy this chain of hotels as there is always a high standard and expectation.
The beach was beautiful, golden sands and turquoise sea. Just think they need a few more parasols as it's very hot! People ended up using a second sun lounger to help with shade. There are always sun beds available and they are free to use which is good.
There are three pools, we only ever went in one of them, a nice quietish one which is tucked away on the right side of the hotel. We found the other pools too noisy and busy but if you like the party life style and noise then it's good for you.
The food choices were good as you could visit different restaurants to mix it up a bit. We also enjoyed going to the italian at lunch time, didn't have to book, as it was very chilled out and the staff were so friendly there.
The drinks were good and many lovely cocktails.
Location was great and could easily walk into town. Get trips yourself as booking with a holiday company is too expensive.
The hotel is suitable for families with older children, couples and adult groups. Not for little kids really as not enough space to run around.
Only negative was with our room. On the first day we got allocated a room on the 13th floor and we had no view at all, just a big wall. We realised it was because there is a ridge on the building at that point. We went to ask at reception if we could move but the receptionist was quite rude and said no as we didn't pay for a sea view. There was no option of a sea view when booking and all the rooms except the 13th floor had a good sea view so we ended up with the dodgy one! We then later told our rep and luckily she sorted it out for us and we were able to move rooms the next day, being able to look out the balcony and enjoy the view.
