I loved the resort!!! I have been to a luxury resort and paid the premium and I think RIU was an awesome resort. Everything was perfect. Lots of food selection, great staff, clean hotel and lots of effort made on everyone's part to keep you happy. The resort is literally a five minute walk from the club district and shopping area. I found the resort to have an excellent mix of people and a variety of ages, singles and couples. No babies or small kids. The only bad thing I have to say about this resort is about the sun exposure. Around 2pm the sun would be hidden by the huge hotel and it became chilly and the beach is very small. The entertainment at the resort was fantastic every single night and they even have a club at the resort. The club was nothing spectacular but the resort is competing with all the cancun clubs and it just won't win. Overall, I think the resort was perfect. Nothing extreme fancy but nothing was bad and lots of variety to keep everyone happy. I should mention that the hot tub on the other side of the resort is not a hot tub!! Wish they had one.
The only part that I was upset with was the club pack we bought from Sunwing. We bought 3 club passes and one excursion deal for $195 USD which did seem like a good deal at the time. But we later discovered that you can probably get club entrance cheaper if you buy directly from the club. And our excursion got cancelled every single day because of the bad weather and sunwing did nothing to compensate us for it. I guess that is the risk you take and its not Sunwing's fault but it would have been nice if our sunwing rep atleast pretended that she cared!
Everyone that goes to Cancun has to go to coco bongo! BEST club ever. Super fun!!
