Hotel Riu Yucatan All Inclusive Playa del Carmen Mexico – View Rates & Availability»

Ready to leave the real world behind and get into an island frame of mind? Riu Yucatan and the fabulous Playa del Carmen are just what you need. You’ll find picture-perfect fun, unlimited drinks and nightly entertainment at this tropical paradise.

Riu Yucatan and its all-inclusive packages will have you in the island groove by the time you get the first drink from your room’s endlessly restocked mini bar. Once you’ve wet your whistle, it’s time to hit palm-fringed Playa del Carmen. This corner of paradise lures pleasure seekers from all over to its pretty beach with sparkling blue water.

After a bit of body surfing, kayaking and snorkeling, make your way to the two large pools for well-earned R & R. Thanks to two swim-up bars, a fresh pina colada is just a dogpaddle away. Two Jacuzzis and a children’s pool round out the options for aquatic indulgence. In addition to swim-up bars, this resort has four others to sample. But that’s not all: Riu Yucatan all-inclusive deals give you access to all the bars at the Playacar complex, which means you can order up your favorite rum collins or a cold brew at Riu Playacar and Riu Tequila, too.

This is a great place for those who want to lay on the beach because the beach is absolutely gorgeous. There was no seaweed, and a nice walkout area with shallow water and gentle waves and a wonderful breeze. There was only one main restaurant with a large variety to satisfy the pickiest of eaters. The nightly onsite entertainment was mediocre. For those who just want to get away and relax – it is more than adequate. For adventure seekers it is close to Tulum, Xcaret and Playa del Carmen.

We stayed for 2 weeks in Dec for my birthday. As other reviews I agree the bedrooms were not up to scratch but the dining rooms, outside areas, bars and terraces were all excellent. All the staff from the barstaff, restaurant staff, glass collectors to the animation team were all lovely. The dancers in the nightly shows, some of whom were the animation staff were excellent. The beach was clean with plenty of sunbeds but you have to get up early to get one by the pools. All the drinks were plentiful so its not an issue as we were having cocktails most days. The food is varied and good with something for everyone. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Room Tip: We were towards the front of the hotel in Room 8101 and it was great. A nice walk to the beach.
