You'll find a quartet of pools here, including one with a swim-up bar, plus a children’s pool with waterslides. Five restaurants have dining covered and you can get snacks 24 hours a day. The Riu Yucatan and the Riu Playacar are just next door – you can use some of their facilities, too.

Please Note

While you're away, you can speak to us anytime - we're available 24/7 via the TUI App. You can also reach us by phone and SMS if you prefer. The easy-to-use TUI App is packed with info and tips. It sends you important updates, like your airport transfer times. Download the TUI App for free from the App Store or Google Play - if you switch on notifications, we'll be able to keep you updated.

Pools

The hotel's pool count is a whopping four. One's an activity pool and another's set aside for quiet dips. What's more, they're all framed by lounger-filled terraces, plus the pièce de résistance is a swim-up bar.

Pool Scene

Kids can enjoy their own pool which comes with waterslides, too.

Food & Drink

You've got five restaurants here. Big buffet breakfasts get the day off to a flying start. Later, a steakhouse, an Asian restaurant and a Mexican eatery join the buffet on the billing. There's an Italian à la carte eatery where you can tuck in, as well.

This place is sistered with two other Riu hotels. If you want a change of scene, you can use the restaurants at the Riu Yucatan and Riu Playacar during the day.

Entertainment

There’s something in the spotlight on the big stage every evening. The billing on one night might be a show, the next it could be a musical act. Themed parties are put on every Friday, too.

There’s a Pacha nightclub at this hotel. It's free entry for guests, and your drinks are part of the All Inclusive package, too. For quiet drinks, there's a lobby bar, a sports bar and another with a terrace.

Sports & Activities

Watersports are left right and centre at this hotel. You can try sailing on a small catamaran, kayaking and body boarding while you’re here. Or sign up for an introductory scuba diving lesson in the pool.

There are also daily group classes held in the RiuFit area. If you go to the Riu Yucatan, close by, you can use the snorkelling gear at the watersports centre.

Health & Beauty

There’s a Renova spa* pavilion close to the neighbouring Riu Yucatan. It’s scented by candles and you can get treatments like Swedish massages here. Back at base, there's an adults-only gym.

Facility Overview

Facilities-wise, there are four pools, plus a kids' number with waterslides. There are five restaurants to dine at, as well. One's a buffet and the rest are à la cartes with menus that hail from the likes of Asia and Mexico. After dark, you've got a handful of watering holes to drink at, along with a nightclub for dancing.
