ClubHotel Riu Tequila All Inclusive Playa del Carmen Mexico- View Rates & Availability»

Surrounded by tropical greenery, this hotel has a secluded setting and a great pool scene.

Location, food and décor – the Riu Tequila’s got a lot going for it. Setting the scene is the sumptuous reception lounge. With its graceful archways, elegant sofas and warmly-lit gold décor, there’s no mistaking that this is one smart hotel. And the comfort trip continues in the bedrooms, dressed in vibrant shades of gold.

Outside, two swimming pools are framed by tree-lined sun terraces dotted with coconut thatch umbrellas. The pièce de résistance is the enormous thatched swim-up bar. If it’s the beach you’re after, step out through the lush gardens and in five minutes you’ll be on powdery white sands. But if you want get there even faster, a shuttle service will whisk you down.

On the food front, big buffet breakfasts get the day off to a satisfying start. After that, you’re spoilt for choice. There’s a steakhouse and an Asian restaurant for evening meals, plus a beach club serving Mexican specials and more tempting buffets.

If all that’s not enough, the Riu Tequila is part of the lively Riu Resort Playacar which means you can hop across to the neighboring Riu Yucatan and Riu Playacar, too.

We stayed here for a week in November and we had a great time. Food at the buffet was good and lots of it! The room was nice, was always cleaned well daily and drinks replenished every 2 days. The pool area was nice but I spend most of our time during the day at the beach, it’s a 10 minute walk or you can take the shuttle. Once at the beach we would eat and get drinks from the RIU Yucatan which was part of the same all inclusive. Overall, beautiful clean hotel, with excellent service and great food choices. Would recommend.

The hotel is one of the nicest AI I’ve been to, the rooms are a good size very clean, the reception staff were very helpful, the food was very good and varied and the specialist restaurants were also good, the bar staff at the pool were great fun and always made sure we enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is very close to the beach which is easily accessed by a short walk or by the hotel shuttle cart. Hotel is in Playacar, a gated community which is gorgeous and safe to walk around. There are tourist shops, Starbucks etc. It is an hour from the airport, 1hr 15mins from Cancun and 3hrs from Chichen Itza. Overall, this is a great hotel and well worth going to. Room Tip: Go first floor if you can, rear of any block will be quieter than front.
