"The hotel location is good, not as big as the Riu Grand Palace, Palace or Yucatan.It was better since you have more beach front space. Is worth to visit the other Riu locations and spend a day in the one you like the most. You can have breakfast and lunch in any one. Lots of activities all day. The buffet was good, no fancy sea food or meats. But for the most part satisfactory. The steak night was not what I expected so stay with the Asian and Mexican buffet plus you have the regular restaurant buffet for breakfast and dinner. The AC is not like in the US for most restaurants and lobby so don't dress up like if you were at a location that will make you use jackets. Friendly employees and nice attitude from them. Be careful in selecting your tours if you do so, everyone is on that business. Make a decision on what location or Maya ruins you want to visit before you fly there and then pay what is most reasonable."

"What a wonderful, friendly hotel! My comments are: Hotel - smallish hotel that felt Mexican rather than large impersonal shiney one - exactly what I wanted when I booked it. Reception - very helpful - requested a room change and an extra bed and both were dealt with in a friendly manner. Rooms - adequate for two adults and one child (aged 14), but needed an extra bed as one double bed not big enough for two adults. Quite firm mattress, but fussy sleeper was able to sleep comfortably. Curtain which separates bathroom was 'fun', as was the novelty four bottle optics mini-bar! Maid service was excellent and room was cleaned every day. Air-con - variable. Started holiday in block one on ground floor - air-con was fantastically icey. Moved to top floor of block six - air-con not so good. Food - the food in the main hall was good, so we didn't bother to book the other restaurants. Catered for all sorts - always a Mexican section and a bland pizza/fries/burgers section in addition to plenty of other choices and themed nights. Waiter/waitress service excellent and all staff very friendly and worked hard. Entertainment - the entertainment staff worked extremely hard and were always very friendly and enthusiastic (goodness knows how they manage to remain upbeat the whole time!). All-day programme available if you wanted to get involved, with prizes awarded in the evening for the winners - very competitive! Live show entertainment each evening. Location - perfect beach front location - never seen such a beautiful, turquoise coloured sea before! Choice of sitting at the beach, quiet poolside or 'activity' poolside (with pool bar). Plenty of chairs everywhere, but more shade available at poolside. Mozzies - ever present, but reduced somewhat once the hotel was sprayed. Weather - humidity very high throughout holiday. Had a grand finale tropical storm on the last evening - fantastic show! All in all, plenty of what you want from a holiday!"

"Beautiful place!! Just few complaints our mini bar broke spilled water all over called the desk and reported it they never went to clean it. Called again and nothing after the 5th time they came and changed the mini fridge. Had to take cold showers because the boiler was broken. And they did not serve Mexican food. Only on Friday cuz it was Mexican night. I was looking forward in having there food but they cater to the Europeans. But other than that everything was beautiful and the people that worked there were very nice and Best Day agency were very nice too!!"

"Overall good experience while some flaws. Beach...FANTASTIC. So beautiful, exceeded my expectations, loved it. Staff... Exceptional, everyone very friendly, courteous, and professional, can't praise them enough. Food... surprisingly good, the buffet food that is. Ate at the 'steakhouse', food was sub par, buffet was much better. Room... very good with one big problem. The bed was very bad, hard and cover under the sheets had squeaky plastic. If it wasn't for the terrible bed, I would have rated it much higher."
