excellent 5 star hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 21, 2006

The Riu so far has been the best all inclusive hotel i've stayed at. There are 3 pool areas, with one swim up bar...they were always kept very clean. The rooms are very spacious, with a king bed (2 beds stuck together), and a little living area with TV. There's also a mini-fridge stocked with water and Corona beer....they restock every 3 days but you can ask for it to be stocked everyday. above the fridge are four bottles of alcohol (see pic)...so you can literally drink 24/7.

the food was amazing...the buffet always had a great selection of meat, seafood, pasta etc...there are also a couple restaurants (also great) but we ate at the buffet most of the time. There is even a soft serve ice cream station where you can help yourself. Wake up for breakfast! they make a great omelets exactly how you want it.

the entertainment at night is ok...they put on an excellent michael jackson show...there is also mini-disco room.

an affordable 5 star

by written on June 22, 2003

The newst property in Cancun (June 2003, it may not the newest in a few months) is a great seller and resort for everyone.
RIU CANCUN is for everyone - families, singles, couples, young and "more mature". There is something for everyone here...as well as a "loud" pool and a "quiet" pool area.... food is awsome....beach is nice, with just a few waves.
Fore more info on RIU CANCUN visit my travelogue.

Unique Quality: Right in the midst of everything, walking distance to shops, markets, bars, and on the beach.....
