The RIU Cancun, with it’s enviable beach side position in the Cancun hotel zone, friendly staff, 24 hour all inclusive and amazing views from the guest rooms is a wonderful choice for a Cancun holiday. Enjoy direct flights from The UK to Cancun and stay in The award winning RIU Cancun.

Centrally located in Cancun’s hotel zone with shops and nightclubs nearby. The RIU Cancun is directly on the sandy beach and is next to the sister hotel, Riu Palace las Americas. To downtown Cancun, it’s about 10 km with a very frequent bus service. A wide range of excursions are available.

With over 500 rooms at The RIU Cancun, this is a large hotel, but with tall ceilings and large public areas there is still a feeling of space. The air conditioned guest rooms, all of which have a sea view are equipped with optic liquor dispensers and mini-bar, ceiling fan, Satelite TV, balcony and hairdryer.

At the RIU Cancun you can eat and drink 24 hours a day! The breakfast gets great reviews – a full featured American style breakfast with virtually everything on offer including freshly made eggs to order at the cooking stations. For dinner there is sumptuous buffets with cooking stations adding freshly prepared food on the spot.
In terms of speciality restaurants at The RIU Cancun, there is a steakhouse / grill, plus a Japanese and an Italian. Whether you are staying for a week or a fortnight, the vast majority of guests really enjoy the food on offer, we hope you will too.

RIU Cancun Review

Conclusion of Tina, From Swansea.
Holiday Overall
We loved it!. Evening entertainment in other RIU hotels in The Caribbean we’ve been to is in some respects better, but this is no big deal for us as Cancun has so much to offer.

We were already the second time in this hotel. The only small drawback being Americans on holiday weekend, the seemingly only go there for the purpose of alcohol consumption

Staff super friendly, even without constant tips. The front desk staff a little different, although polite and efficient, not friendly in the same way.

Central in Cancun, very good location if you want to be part of the action but still not loud if you don’t!

Food & Drink
In the restaurants it’s all very well looked after, great selection at the buffets, but of course it is repeated all over again each night. The A La Carte restaurants were superb.

Sports & Leisure
We have used the Catamaran fora good half-day trip and more snorkelling.

The beach directly in front of the hotel is in places rather narrow, but you can go quite far in one direction. Fine white sand just like the brochures say!. Wonderful variety of fish and good snorkeling right from the shore.

Very well maintained. If you want to get a place directly by the pool you should get up rather early – but that was no problem with the time difference anyway !!
5 stars –
