Positive Reviews

Fantastic location

Guests who've stayed at the Riu Yucatan love it's location. Although everything you need is within the complex (shared with a handful of other Riu hotels), those who wish to venture a little further afield are only a five-minute walk from the local shops and bars.

Sit back, relax and be entertained

The entertainment at the hotel gets great reviews. Starting mid-morning, the animation team work tirelessly to keep you entertained right through until the evening. Guests report that the night-time shows are varied and great fun to watch.

Ten out of ten for cleanliness

Guests have commented that the rooms at the Riu Yucatan are kept incredibly clean, with maid service seven days a week. Minibars are restocked every two days and linens regularly changed, with housekeeping staff always nearby to resolve any issues if necessary.

Negative Reviews

It's getting hot in here

Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel, with the best signal strength being found in the lobby area. Some guests have commented that the lobby is not air-conditioned making it an uncomfortable environment to sit and surf the web.

Bit of a walk for a morning cuppa

Some guests have mentioned that they would've preferred if tea and coffee making facilities were available in the rooms. That said, fresh coffee is available from the bars and restaurants on-site and guests are more than welcome to take them back to their rooms.

Pesky mosquitos

Although not the fault of the hotel, many guests who've stayed here have commented on the presence of mosquitos. Guests are strongly advised to invest in a good insect repellent before travelling.
