the hotel lies in a wonderful covered with greenery area, in a variety of unterschiedl. Species lives-( especially pleased it us super cute coatis). The hotel has about 600 rooms-lost but by the size quite good. The complex is very clean and well maintained. The rooms are in individual blocks with 2 floors, per floor ever 8 rooms divided. In our day were many guests from Canada and England since, relatively little German since. Little children. All age gr …  read hotel review

the complex was nice. Nothing special spacious. A walk from 10 minute is enough for everything to have seen. The first room the was assigned to us was directly at the street. Many noise and vacation feeling no trace. The second room was in the direction golf course. During the day it was relatively pleasant. But every morning from 5:00 A.

lovely hotel, very relaxing, loved the pool and pool bar, the room was very clean, never saw a creepy crawlie in the room! we had a quiet room just set back from the pool. food was delicious and the steak restaurant we visited twice was lovely too. perfect place for couples to enjoy time together, all staff were very friendly and every floor was clean enough to eat off, even the toilets. luckily it still has the mexican charm and has not been done up like the other RUi hotels nearby. will definitely visit again read hotel review

    Breakfast: extensive offer the has something for everyone. (delicious freshly prepared fruit juices). Lunch: from our point of view a few to criticize, as selection, optics and quality both in the pool bar as well as in the beach bar (RIU Yucatan must be used) partially not at the level of breakfast and dinner could not reach. With hearty breakfast and dinner, the offer for a snack was absolutely suitable. Dinner: there was a main restaurant and 3 theme restaurants (mexican, steakhouse, asian). We only used the main restaurant and can therefore the theme restaurants are not closer rate. The main restaurant (buffet) was varied, fresh and visually appealing. We were mostly very content with the meal. Basically is something for everyone and the alternation shall barbecue evenings, italian corner and local cuisine. The you also times something on the plates, which maybe not so appealing, could happen. But due to the variety you can always avoid. Also very attractive essenspräsentation including decoration (every evening ice sculptures, carvings from fruit, etc.).

    Always friendly service staff both in the bar, restaurant and at the front desk (german). The cleanliness in general, but especially of the rooms was good. Depending on the cleaning staff there were little touches in from of ' towel animals ' ☺. German speaking doctor in the neighboring hotel RIU Yucatan usable. We had no complaints to report, but were polite at the reception (several times) asked, whether we were happy with everything. This was from our point of view very attentive.

    The entertainment wasn't used. Offer and appearance of the entertainers extensive and pleasant. Beautifully landscaped pool area including a pool bar and enough beach chairs. However, we have the sea the pool early. Every evening entertainment in the theater with daily changing shows. Often dance and singers but also, for example, magic show, casino night etc. Who likes, can the evening with a cocktail.

    The hotel was built in 1998 and as a result, the location in comparison to the neighboring RIU Yucatan rather traditional than modern. (but not in need of renovation!) From our point of view is here more the mexkanische style and provides for a presentation ambience. Therefore the rooms are adequate for the style decorated and furnished. (according to description of catalog, no frills neither positively nor negatively). Drinks in the minibar are every two days refilled (also alcoholic) - all-inclusive. Cleanliness was adequate, and nothing to complain about.

    The hotel is located on the edge Playa del carmen, together with other hotels in the village of playacar. Therefore, you had to a sufficient distance to the center of the lively city Playa del carmen, but also with the taxi or on foot (30 minutes) on an evening stroll through the ' quinta Avenida' in Playa del camren break (highly recommended!). There are various shopping possibilities and small bars. From the airport Cancun is a mins away. The man-made, fine sandy beach is about a privatweg in ten minutes on foot or by golf cart (shuttle) quickly reached. Hotel is located in 2. number, no direct beach location. From our view the hotel is excellent both for trips in the direction of Tulum (1 hour by car) as also in the direction of Cancun (also 1 hour).

Well-kept hotel. Distance to the beach was ok (about 800m) shuttle service is available. The only drawback. Evening entertainment was not so great and if you too late to the beach, (for 11 hours) were partly no more couches available. There it in our vacation often rained, we noticed especially on, that little covered land in the evening entertainment was. One found then a bad a seat. It is a Hotel with reasonable service with normal expectations. Who somewhat special expected is wrong here. read hotel review

We can the hotel RIU Tequila only recommend it! If you're on a beautiful beach, good all-inclusive cuisine and cleanliness, is here exactly correct. The hotel consists of approximately 664 rooms (on several small buildings) and always had 2 floors. The facilities of the neighboring hotel Riu yucantan (freshly renovated) can be used. There were all age groups and many different nationalities were available. Many families, younger and older couples, as well as german, french, dutch, americans, canadians, etc. read hotel review

    The staff was very friendly at the front desk was even german was spoken, which i would not necessarily abroad can expect. The room cleaning was always great, and there were always small ' towel animals' as swan, giraffe, rabbits, etc. For us was tinkered. As we were in a quiet room, had we directly after the arrival the room change, which represented however at all no problem. We could just move and have a beautiful room with a view of the golf course to get. A beautiful view with a lot of green lawn!

    The hotel is located in playacar, but it is not directly on the beach. The beautiful sandy beach could be reached via a private privatweg in about 800 m, but it runs several times a day and free of charge a golf cart. Almost directly next to it is the small shopping center playacar (very expensive!) And a small Starbucks. After Playa del Carmen it was about 3 kilometer (about 20-30 - minute walk). From there out can one also with the ferry to the neighboring island cozumel (circa 40 minutes trip) for 1 3 $each way drive. The transfer time from the airport Cancun is approximately 1 hour.

    We had a very nice and large double room with balcony. The air conditioning system could one central taxes, ceiling fan, separate shower, toilet, hair dryer, safe (at no charge), mini bar (every 2 days was filled up), tv with satellite channels (Deutsche Welle), ironing board and iron. The room cleaning was always perfect and there was always small towel animals.

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    Every day there was a international restaurant, and a fitness room in the Riu yucantan. The gym room was in my eyes too small, since this by two hotels used and the elliptical trainer, bikes and treadmills always immediately occupied. You should not a device more than 20 minutes use, since the other guests also have a chance to have wanted to use them. Otherwise there was still diving, diving, beach volleyball and water sports such as kayaking, catamaran, surfing and snorkelling. Against fee: golf and bike!

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    There are several restaurants: main restaurant with buffet and terrace and 3 theme restaurants (mexican, asian and steakhouse). The steakhouse is absolutely recommendable, we are even 2 time there! The main restaurant (buffet) was always very varied and there was always something for everyone. For breakfast there were delicious and freshly made fruit juice such as banana, melon, pineapple, carrots etc. Of course many bread, - and rolls, cakes, biscuits, eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit and dried fruit, cereals and nuts. The lunch we always Riu yucantan taken, since this hotel is right on the beach and you the facilities allowed to use. There were many salads, fresh fish, meat, rice, pasta, pizza, vegetables, fruit, cakes, ice cream, coffee machine etc. The dinner was just as extensive as the lunch. Of course there was also always a show cooking, several times per week theme nights (asian, mexican etc.) And even vegetarian fare! Top!

The beautiful RIU Tequila consists of the reception and main restaurant as well as the asian and showers for the day of the departure, then you will find the theatre as well as the two bars for the evening and the sports bar which is open around the clock. Overall a nice and, above all, very clean impression. And that is already times the 'half rent'. The pool is located in the middle of the area and is split into two panels. 'in the mitte' of the pools is the pool restaurant/steakhouse. All around were in smaller and larger bungalows ... the room. All about nice leafy paths in a small jungle to reach ☺ here are also always again, especially to later hour the coatis and individual cats on the way. Mixed during our stay. But above all, you met for americans and canadians, german and british. Children were to our time hardly on site. Especially couples or smaller rentnergruppen were to be met. It is a pure universe inclusive hotel, and this also means all-inclusive really all inclusive ☺ around the clock you got drinks and food.

    In total there are 4 restaurants the guests of the RIU Tequila use. The main restaurant in the proximity of the reception. Here you will find every night a huge buffet with changing themes. Everyone should find it here because there really is a huge selection. On the way to the pool directly beside the main restaurant one finds the asians. Here there are likewise to buffet which was to be really recommended (here we were in 14 days the same 3 times ☺ During the day you will find right in the middle of the pools the pool restaurant which in the evening to the steakhouse sends. Here there were soup and appetizer plate directly from the service to the table and you can then his main courses à la carte. Dessert then ice cream also again directly to the table. Directly on the beach you will find during the day the beach restaurant, which was used as a mexican restaurant. Here you will find the starters and desserts on the buffet, the main course there are à la carte. All in all we can say that all the restaurants were always tasty. From our side not as spicy as we in Mexico sometimes would have liked but you could always spice. Which we missed, is a direct beach bar amount of access of RIU Tequila. Is located at the beach you have a choice, if you go to RIU Yucatan and at the pool bar a bit gets or one attracts and strandrestauran is. We found that very unfortunate, we knew so far differently from our holiday...

    The friendliness was as always wonderful. On the super nice front desk by marjun from the reception team, the us already directly by the airport fetched to our cleaning lady, all were always very friendly and courteous ☺ In the restaurants you could sometimes not so fast your glass empty already a new full before itself. At the front desk are marjun and Juan Jose to find (one of the two was actually always there) both speak german. Also in the restaurant spoke a few staff members speak german surprisingly well. Otherwise you could get by with english also still by ☺

    There is a small but nice animation team, which in the evening the great shows organized. During the day you will find oneself preferably on poolhäuschen. Once or twice a day to the beach to Bocce or beach volleyball. The beach we with mixed feelings,. Beautiful clear water, beautiful fine sand, but the purest liegenmassen the everything was very broken. Nice Carribean like is little on, as you from 10:30 a. m. really for being because of couch is appropriate.

    The hotel is located in 2. row behind the RIU Yucatan and the Riu Palace Mexico and is over their own way between Yucatan and palace Mexico with the Karibik connected to beach. You have to just across the street, but since one in the middle of a tourist area is are here almost exclusively taxis, coaches etc. Met relatively cautious drive or anyway by the thresholds in soil be stopped ☺ You could reach the beach from the front desk in about 5 minutes, or with the golf cart which daily from 9a 13 and 15 to 18 hours runs. The actual town Playa del Carmen you can find to the left of the hotel and runs about 30 to 40 minutes to the 5th Avenue, here you will find countless shops however very touristy are laid out. If you left the hotel and go right you leave after about 30 minutes from the tourist zone and get to a main street. If they crossed you can get to the CENTRO Maja, a shopping center with supermarket. Here we have all of our souvenirs and bought much less paid than in Playa the Carmen itself. You don't want to walk far there is also a few meters away next to the hotel on the RIU Playacar a small shopping arcade.
