We stayed for two weeks early in August. Although we prefer a modern decor our room was kept extremely clean and tidy with all bath towels, soaps etc topped up daily. A fantastic all inclusive package which really did include everything! e.g ice creams, branded drinks, beach sun loungers, kayaks, boogie boards, even drinks in the room were part of... More

Really bad hotel "all inclusive"to stay in Playacar...15m walk from Palaya del Carmen. The hotel restaurants are the worst I've ever been...the pool is hot,like a boiling pot and hotel reception organization is a really disaster. Rooms are OK but AC didn't work... Big hotel full of monkeys who ask for food while you are having a romantic dinner....

This was our first time at an all-inclusive resort. The location was ok; we thought it would be on the beach, however the resort and beach are separated by a road. The distance to the beach is just a ten minutes walk or a short, couple minutes drive with the shuttle. The beach is nice, plenty of chairs, shade and... More

After conducting a thorough research on the best location for first timers in Mexico, my girlfriend and I decided to stay in Playa Del Carmen. Our decision was established through the combination of experiencing local culture and also staying in the best all-inclusive hotel that we could afford. After several hours per day on numerous booking websites, we found a... More

We have recently returned from our holiday to the Rui tequila, and we had a fantastic time. The hotel wasn't the most modern and in need of a revamp, but it exudes charm with its bright colours and Mexican theme. The staff were the friendliest staff we have ever had the pleasure to meet, and all in all made the... More

Great vacation, the room was clean and comfortable. All inclusive was great. Restaurant choice was a bit limited. But the food was very good. Pool was to small and the water way to hot. Kids enjoy it a lot. But is was to hot for me, It's like swimming in a hot tub. Overall the experience was great.

Just returned from a family holiday and our 3rd visit to the Tequila. Overall we enjoyed our stay but the hotel is getting tired as others have mentioned and drinks are not as strong as they used to be. The pool with the swim up bar is dirty, it has green algae tide mark! The sunbeds and their covers have... More

The first thing that caught my attention were the colonial decoration and the true mexican Hacienda entrance. Clean rooms, wonderful both food and beverages and above all, super friendly, professional, and helpful staff.
