Loved Riu Cancun!!

Posted Oct 23, 2014
Pros: Location, food quality and selection, things to do / entrainment.
Cons: 1 thing that kinda stuck out to me was the bed in the room. It was uncomfortable to me, just on the hard side.
Location: Mall, clubs and restaurants downtowe.
I went to cancun last year and loved it, I went this year and loved it even more. I stayed at Riu Cancun. I would recommend this resort 100%. Location was awesome, in walking distance to downtown clubs and restaurants. Food was really good, entertainment was fun ( pool side daily, night time shows for kids and adults, cook out at pool, Also the entrainment staff go out at night to clubs in bus or taxi, u can go with them in group vip kinda style- all of which aren't advertised which im really surprised).

Rooms

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: The hotel overall was excellent from the bars to the resturants
Cons: Rooms very humid and had no coffee pots as well as the TV service was very bad. WiFi could be improved.
Rooms very humid, beds could be better and would have liked a coffee pot in room. Hotel overall was great and the food and service was awesome for the cost. Most certainly would recommend this vacation spot.

Nice hotel, close to beach.

It was an overall good experience. They said we were to have a king bed, but it was two doubles pushed together. I was disappointed as they only had one buffet. They do have 3 specialty restaurants, but need reservation 2 days in advance

Great hotel!

Posted Oct 7, 2014
Very big place and friendly staff! The hotel was comfortable and everything had easy access. Definitely would recommend it! Activities were fun. You're on vacation but if you're addicted to your phone you will be disappointed with internet accessibility. You have to pay for WiFi in the room, you get 90 minutes of free wifi but at all at one time and only in the lobby. The staff puts on fun shows for the night except Sundays (unless I missed it).

A place to stay

Posted Oct 7, 2014
We stayed at riu cancun for 4 days, it has some pro and cons, hotel staff is very friendly, food is great! Hotel room is very nice, location is great, the only problem is pool closed at 7:00pm, really? If you are not planning to leave the hotel is cool but if you go to the tours you will never be able to use the pool, the best thing is the theater show at nights, you basically don't need to go out for fun
