We stayed here 2 years ago & to be honest, nothing has changed. The staff are still as attentive & diligent, the rooms are still well appointed and the hotel is good for an older clientele.
I guess it's ready to be updated but I hope it isn't turned into a carbon copy of every other Riu. It has a certain charm with the wood features and stained glass ceiling in the lobby & I'd hate to think it'll be another white paint & chrome affair!
The addition of free wi-fi all over the property is a bonus now, but I hope they can improve the quality of the TV reception (I know it's not why we go on holiday) and digital safes rather than key operated would be better.
The food was ok, lots of variety to suit all tastes, although we didn't use the a la carte restaurants this time. They were never full when we walked past which surprised me a bit.
They seem to have recovered some of the shoreline, too. The stretch of beach directly behind the hotel and as you walk around to the Riu Cancun beach are both bigger than I remember from 2 years ago and there are a number of jetties into the sea at both Riu properties.
The renovation work at the Riu Cancun can be a bit noisy when you are at the Pool Bar but can't be heard from the beach or the Family Pool areas.
All in all we had another great holiday in Cancun & will continue to look for Riu hotels wherever we decide to go.
