Loved this property. We were super impressed with how much they kept the property clean. They were consistently spraying and using a UV light to disinfect. Staff was super friendly and any issues that we had(which were minor) were addressed promptly.

We stayed in a Junior Suite Oceanview room 252. The room was excellent, with my only negative comment being that if you stay on the 1st-3rd floors, on the west side of the hotel (where we were) you have a chance at getting a partially obstructed view due to the hotel next door. We still had a great view of the ocean and enjoyed our time on the balcony. The service at this hotel is excellent. Service at all front desk, restaurants, bars, at the pool and entertainment venues were all top notch. The beach areas are a little cramped, but I think that's the case at most of these resorts. There are 3 pools, but really only had traffic at one of them while we were there. I'm sure in non-COVID times, the pools all start to fill up. My only real complaint about this hotel would be the food. You do have a lot of options for eating, but most of the food is average at best. We ate at all the restaurants except for the Japanese restaurant (only because it was closed when we wanted to eat there). The biggest disappointment of them all for us was the steakhouse (Black & White). I ordered the 12oz ribeye and my wife ordered the filet. My ribeye was possibly the worst ribeye I've ever eaten. It's never a good sign when a ribeye comes out about 1/2" thick, but it was also very rubbery and had a weird texture. My wife's filet was ok, but nothing to write home about. We did enjoy the food at the fusion restaurant and had a decent meal at the Italian restaurant. The buffet restaurant (the main restaurant) was just so-so. It's a buffet, so what do you expect. I will say, though, that I was coming in hoping that the specialty restaurants would be somewhat on-par with cruise ship specialty restaurants in food quality and boy were they not! Overall, though, I still rate this hotel excellent because the positives far outweighed the negatives. The nightly entertainment was pretty good and the bartenders always did a good job of taking care of us. Of course, we tipped ($1 a drink), which probably helped in that regard, because I saw most people not tipping, but it was well worth it. Bottom line...I would definitely come back to this resort.

Went here with my girlfriend. The food was very disappointing and pedestrian. Bacon that's not bacon-y. Butter that's not buttery. Facility is very nice. I spotted what I thought was lack of attention to detail. In our shower, the telephone shower HOLDER was broken. I would not hold the telephone shower in a wanted position. Also, the rain shower head was missing nipples, and would spray water in unwanted directions. I called and after a day, maintenance came and took care of it. Climate control in the room was pretty much nonexistent. It was humid. Climate controls on the wall apparently didn't give actual control. The room was humid. You couldn't dry clothes in the room, or towels. The pillows looked plump, but flattened to nothing. I've never heard of Riu, and won't be looking to visit another one of their properties.

My first time at this hotel and I enjoyed every minute. Great staff and great customer service! Karla from entertainment was very helpful and knowledgeable about the events that were happening every night. There were a different variety of restaurants that everyone would be able to find something that would suit their needs. Definitely would visit again!

I was there with my friends for 5 days and it was a perfect holiday. The hotel was so good. The room spacious and clean. The food was very good. The see beautiful. It was different from the other side of cancun where you cannot swim because of large waves. The service of the stuff is on top of everything. They are so nice, so hardworking so polite and helpful. Maximum of rate goes for the staff.
