I have been to many All inclusive resorts, Riu is still my favourite. They really have the best buffets! We only stayed here for 2 days, not sure we would have enjoyed a whole week, This was the quietest AI I have ever seen, quite a nice change, liked the Adult quiet pool, and the beach club was wonderful. Playacar is the best beach on the Riviera Maya (in my opinion). The shuttle is reliable and well used. I wonder if most guests just use this hotel as a place to sleep and do a lot of day trips, as there really was not many people by the pool. Most visitors were from European countries, we were amazed at how many people smoked (it reminded us of the 70's)
Biggest Cons: the rooms are very old, the Air conditioner very loud, old plumbing, you can hear your neighbor shower or flush the toilet. On the positive side, we did not notice any musty smells, and the room was very clean.
Bring mosquito repellant.
Bottom line, you get what you pay for, this was fine for the price, but if you want a nice room stay at the RIU Palace
