It is a great hotel overall. Its rooms are comfortable and clean, the food is really good, the customer service is excellent and I had so much fun with the animation team, there is always something fun to do everyday and I really enjoyed their show at night.

Spent five days 3/26 to 3/31 at Riu Playacar with our Son & Daughter-in-law..Enjoyed everyday..Staff was great, especially Bartenders Oswaldo,Antonio,& Nelson,amd their Supervisors. Food & Dinning staff, along with the Housekeeping staff, great also..Rooms very clean. It was hard to come back to our cold weather in Wisconsin. And Omar, I beleive that is his name,was great in assisting people from Funjet & Apple vacations..In conclusion, this was our 6th year in coming to Riu Playacar and never had anything bad to say about the Resort..God willing, I hope to make a return trip again next year..
Sincerly,

I stayed there last year for Christmas. I had the time of my life. The people were wonderful and the food was out of this world. Can't wait to go back there.

A wedding and a hurricaine

Booked to get married on 22 August, but Hurricaine Dean put in an appearance on 20th-21st, so wedding postponed til Saturday 25th. Hotel very efficient in Hurricaine preparations and did not feel panicked. Had a hurricaine party in the room with wedding guests (those who could make it) and enjoyed the Thunder and lightning. Wedding was perfect, just as I had wished. Everyone on the beach came to watch as we exchanged vows and the photos from the photographer were brilliant. The staff looked after us and made the day really special. Thanks to the Wedding co-ordinator, the bar and restaurant staff, Diana the rep and the reception staff.

Just returned about a week ago now from the Riu PLayacar, MX. Cant say anough about this place! My partner and I were ooking for a relaxing but fun destination in Mexico for not too many $ and stumbled upon a worryfreevacations package at the RIU. Very happy! FOr anyone wanting luxurious, elegant accomodations, please look elsewhere, but for those wanting comfortable, but very very nice rooms/facilities/services - here it is! Rooms: Comfy with all you need. Little musty, but Ive lived in the tropics all my life - welcome to it! AC works well, lots of space, well stocked minibar! Food: Great! ALl well prepared and presented. Tasted great, large variety... tho hard to go past the chips salsa and guacamole! A la carte is very good for a quiet change of scene. Drinks: weeeeeeee! Not top shelf unless you ask, but plesae do! They are more than happy to booze you up!!! Great variety of tropical bevs - big list. (I suggest going through one by one, then coming back and trying it three by three!) And finally, STAFF: FABULOUS! Cant say enough! Always willing and wanting to help in any way! Animacion guys are a riot! Entertainment nights are great fun. This is the biggest asset to the place - STAFF. like I said, Cant say enough! I loved this place. No ritz, but definitely no super 8! well worth it.

Top Local Tips for Playa Del Carmen

Cenotes We loved our cenote experience. These underground rivers are a combination of fresh and sea waters, and exist in limestone formation no other place in the world. The snorkeling through stalagtites and stalagmites, open rainforested areas, and bat caves was one cool experience -- even though the water stays constant at about 74 degrees!

senior frogs If your're looking for a wicked night out and a great laugh, go to a bar called senior frogs in 5th avenue in playa del carmen. Such a good laugh, live band, dancing, conga line!

g i would go back
