The RIU Tequila is the best value for money we ever stayed, ( 3 stars in puerto vallarta to 5 stars dominican). The check in was quick and painless,( arrived 8:30 pm, supper was still availible til 10 pm). We were in the 300 block, ground level, near the street and we found it quite central between the pools and restaurants. Minimal noise from the street, more from the birds at sunrise.
The food is excellent. Breakfast is very good but repetative. Lunch is very good. Supper is awesome! Soups are fantanstic, salad bar is 30 ft long.(cheese at least 3 kinds) Mexican station, pasta station, carvery and main course.is very good . Ale carts is very good , you have to book at 7 am to get a reservation though. The beach is a 10 min walk or 5 min ride on a golf cart ( which is free ). The beach is clean and big with lots of laydowns.
The housekeeping staff is very friendly and thorough with the rooms, The groundskeepers keep the resort clean of garbage and constantly pruning and raking leaves and such. The bartending and restaurant staff are polite and very efficient. There is poolside service but quicker just to just go to the pool bar yourself ( no big deal ).
For first timers to a resort I advise to attend the orientation. They are exremely helpful in regards to tours and local behaviors of vendors in Playa del Carmen so you won't get ripped off.
