Just returned from the Tequila a couple of days ago. This was my third visit and I would certainly go back. The staff, cleaners, bar staff, waiters and entertainment team are so friendly and they work so hard. The rooms are a little dated but very clean as are the grounds of the hotel. The pool was very warm and... More

This was our third time back here, but we mainly chose this place because this time we was with our 3yr old toddler and we wanted to go somewhere familiar where we knew we would feel comfortable. The thing I love about this hotel is that you don't just get one hotel, you get the use of the Rui yucatan... More

Fantastic hotel with friendly Mexican atmosphere surrendered by well maintained Jungle. Rooms were OK- Everything you need is there; plus mini bar all inclusive. Short walking distance to the beach. Beach is huge and tropical, in the pristine condition. The staff is working very hard to make sure beach stays clean. You can use Riu Yucatan restaurants and pools which... More

We traveled with our two boys age 16 and 12. Our room was spacious and clean. The food was great! The beach was a nice, short walk. We never took the trolly. The walkway was shaded with beautiful plants and trees surrounding it. The beach was wide and clean with lots of loungers available in sun or shade. We didn't... More

This was our second visit. Hope wont be last. Fabulous beach.(short walk). Fantastic atmosphere. Marvelous food and drink (especially cocktails). Spotlessly clean. Beautiful surroundings. Entertaining wildlife but the best attribute is the staff. Lovely cleaner Nancy, waiter Jeremiah, all animation and great bar staff.. my favourite lady Veronica in the bar behind pool. She is so funny and entertaining better... More

Not a lot of Canadians here, mostly English. Super friendly staff. We had a birthday and an anniversary here and the hotel made it special. Kids age 7 and 10 had a blast. Food is great, buffet especially. Beach is a good 5 minute walk but worth it if you like the ocean. Tons of beach chairs and shade. Not... More
