"We had a great time at the Riu Tequila! The staff were friendly, the entertainment was fun if you participate, the shows at night were mostly fun, the food was decent and they change theme every night, and the room was clean. The specialty restaurants that we went to is the Bamboo 'Asian theme'. We manage to wake up early for one day to make a reservation for the Bamboo. The other days we miss the reservation times. The Bamboo restaurant wasn't that good. We had better Asian food here in the Bay Area. I guess our standard is pretty high because we live in the Bay Area. I really have no complaints here. There were some cons but it wasn't really a big issue. Cons: -The toilet seat cover does not stay up. So when you need to use the toilet, you have to hold the seat cover up. It annoys our family after the first day there. But we decided not to change rooms because it wasn't a big issue to bother the staff about. -The bugs! Our family had a lot of insect/mosquito bites. It itches so bad. We should have bought an insect repellent the first day but on the first day there, we didn't get any bites so we thought there's no issues with the bugs. We were wrong! So BUY INSECT REPELLENT if you go there!!! -You have to walk to the beach which is about 10 minutes. It wasn't a big deal for us but could be an inconvenience for some people. However, if you willing to wait, there's a shuttle that takes you to the beach. The shuttle takes a break from 1-3pm and after sundown, there's no shuttle. -The bathroom in our room kind of stink a little and we don't know why. That is even when we just got to our room on our arrival at Riu and after the cleaning person cleans our room. It has a urine smell to it and we couldn't figure why or where it smell. "

"Just back from a wonderful 8-day family vacation at Riu Tequila in Playacar. The hotel was lovely and we loved this destination so much that we are planning on returning. Pros: - staff are friendly and efficient - really wonderful - kids club was fun for the couple hours offered each day (only 10-12am and 3-4:45pm) Kids can only be signed in at their actual hotel Kids Club. However, the Riu Yucatan kids club has better facilities and was near our location on the beach during the day - they kindly allowed our kids to visit when they had room. - lots of buffet style food options available - but only until 4pm then you have to wait until - beach is amazing - enjoyed the free beach facilities and sailing - shows are surprisingly good and lots of fun - highly recommend 'Michael Jackson show', 'Mayan show' and 'Fright Night show' Cons: - short walk to the beach - not really a problem but you should be prepared in advance. - room was so warm at night, we were all sweating in our beds (they are covered with a plastic protector and with our suntans this made the beds uncomfortably warm). We asked for them to make the room cooler but the technician (who came promptly) said there was nothing he could as it was preset. - there are not enough beds to make the 2 Kids-under12-free a realistic option - they only have enough room for one extra cot. Despite assurances given when we phoned twice beforehand. - having to wake up early to make a reservation for same-day Dinner at a restaurant- first come first serve - reservations open at 7am "

"We had an excellent one week vacation at this hotel! The room and facilities were very clean, the staff was incredibly nice and helpful, and the setting was fantastic. Other resorts in the area were laid out like hotels, but this is a much more private setting. The pools and programs were great and we made a lot of great friends there. Many of the guests are European and very friendly. We felt safe and generally had all of our needs taken care of.. High Points: - Great pools - A five minute walk to the beach (along a private path) - Quiet - Peaceful - Safe - Fresh and good food - Kid friendly - 24 hour game room ('sports bar') Low Points: - The TV in our room was broken - The only free internet is 1.5 hours every 24 hours from the lobby - The local shopping district ('5th Avenue') is -very- expensive and salespersons are -very- pushy - All dining (even most dining requiring a reservation) is 'buffet' style - The dance club is tiny - Wrist bands (This is just a personal pet-peeve) - Had to pay for the video games and pool in the game room Overall, I plan on returning. It is difficult for me to imagine what would have made our trip significantly better. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family!"

"Where do I begin? I work in food service so I guess we can be the most picky of guests when it comes to F&B. Good stuff first: Property well maintained, room was clean, liquor dispenser in room was a great perk (however, not used due to having a child with us), food selection and variety was fantastic!! and having an on-site rep. from our tour company in the lobby was a HUGE perk! Down side: If you are use to being around food - (like I am and I have the 'Freedom' to eat when I want to) - plan your meals accordingly!! The burgers are horrible, they have time slots of when food is available. Drinks are way too sweet The bar do NOT use much in the way of premium liquor. You have to request it once you figure out where it is hidden. The dining room near the pool has very rude employees. It was late in the day and I asked for a small container for pineapple. 'NO!' - Beach side dining: They did have chaeffers set up and a portable bar at the beach. The food there was terrible. One day they have potatoes wedges - hard (undercooked) - I mentioned to Chef and he didn't seem to care. Burgers, dogs and leftover Paella from the restaurant from the night before. Good side, the bar staff does often bring trays of drinks down to the beach area and serves the guests. Hungry from 4 - 6 p.m.?? You can get a snack 24 hours a day from the bar. But, you will have to microwave it! Yes, I was shocked to see hamburgers that you can microwave. We didn't spend $3,000 to microwave a burger. Again, the burgers were horrible. Main dining: Overall, due to poor beverages and rude waitstaff, I would't come back to this place."
