We have been to riu tequila twice so far. We would go back in a heartbeat. We have such great memories here. The staff is what makes this place what it is. They are the best from front desk to the groundskeepers and the bartenders too! The best swim up bar ever and if you get there at the right...

Tequila was an ok hotel but needs a refurbish, it's very dated. I liked the Mexican feel but there are ways of modernising without taking away the character! The rooms were awful although very clean & we were left with towel animals everyday which was a nice touch. When we arrived after travelling for over 16 hours our daughters bed...

Once again we visited the RIU Tequila 4/12-4/19/17, this time for our 29th wedding anniversary. This is our 3rd trip within 18 months and once again, we were completely and totally satisfied with our visit. The resort was aware that this trip was for our anniversary and we were welcomed to our room with a bottle of champagne and 2...

Second time to the Riu Tequila. The food was good, The Hotel staff always accommodating. For me the Mexican theme and decor is what I enjoy. Short walk or cart ride to the beach. It was about a twenty to twenty-five minute walk to town. Beautiful stretch of beach.

Looked at all reviews before picking this place, I was a bit leery of the animals on the grounds but they do not bother you. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are very much in need of renovations,but are very clean. We found the beds to be very uncomfortable and hard, I do like a firm mattress but they were...

We stayed here last June, we had an amazing holiday, myself partner and 3 year old daughter. Overall i give the hotel a rating of 4. Out of all the 3 Rius in the area you can visit (Playacar/Yucatan) this in our opinion had the best friendliest staff, the best food, and best entertainment. However, as this is the last...

If you don't like Animals, don't book. If you like super modern hotels with no personality, don't book. If you don't like tipping good service, don't book. If you don't like all inclusive food, don't book. If you don't like energetic entertainment staff who spend all day making your holiday better, don't book. Basically if you're normal and want a...

Bottom Line: Great hotel that met or exceeded all expectations and was in our price range for a family of 4 (kids 11 & 13). Details: We visited Riu Tequila for a 10 day spring break trip. This was our first visit to Playa del Carmen. On a previous trip to Mexico we stayed at the Barcelo Tropical in Mayan...

Spent the week at the Riu Tequila and have to say it was awesome! When booking this resort, I was a little concerned that it wasn't on the beach. However, once I got there, I realized that it is just a nice 10 minute (if that) walk through the other resorts or the nice walkway. The resort is nice and...
