Hotel is huge & right next door to the Riu Palace.
Appx 30mins drive from the airport.
Lifts are glass ad very hot in the sun!!!
Rooms were clean but a little musty smelling possibly due to the aircon. Aircon was great tho. A must have for Cancun.
2 double beds, optics, seperate bathroom.
Only gripe was the location of the mirror - in the hall and not the dressing area which made it difficult to dry my hair. There is a large mirror in the bathroom but it was always too hot for me in there.
Beach sandy & clean altho there were some large rocks in rhe sea.
We were on the 14th floor & had a brilliant view.
Most rooms seemed to have a sea view, apart from poss some of the lower floors that maybe obscured.
Not the quietest hotel Ive ever stayed at. If you want peace & quiet - try another hotel.
Lots of stuff going on round the pool allday with the entertinment team and music on allday.
There was another quieter pool but it was small & never any beds.
Youve got to get to the pool early if you want a sunbed in a good spot.
We were there in October.
The sunbeds nearest the hotel lost sun early afternoon & the ones nearest the beach were the best.
Infinity Pool was quite cold but it was a relief with the heat.
Snacks & ice cream available allday at the poolside restaurant. Usual sort of stuff, burgers chips, chicken, pizza, hotdogs but also salad, fruit, soup and some more exotic food options.
3 gourmet restaurants - Brazilian where they brought meat, then more meat, then more meat all that had been cooked on skewers at the back. Very nice.
Japanese, also very nice. Included, sushi, soup, main course and deep fried ice cream which i had never tried before.
We didnt try the 3rd restaurant which i think was a USA steakhouse.
All inclusive buffet always had lots of choice & was very good every day.
You can get on a bus for pence and can travel up & down the hotel zone. The buses are every minute or 2.
There are about 4 shopping centres up & down the strip. 1 directly opposite the hotel. Some better than others.
Plus Bubba Gumps is opposite The Royal Cancun where I had the best meal of the holiday! This was a short bus ride away from Riu Cancun.
Within 5mins walk of lots of restaurants & bars including Coco Bongo's, Hard Rock Cafe, Hooters, Carlos & Charlies, Senior Frogs (appx 10mins walk). Plus many more.
You MUST visit Coco Bongo's if youve never been to Cancun before - Amazing!! Get a better spot up in the top area - definately worth it!!!
