Location Information


• On the beach
• Close to Cancun's bustling hotel zone
• 5 minutes' drive from many shops, restaurants, bars and discos

Inside, the hotel favours a modern look. The high-ceilinged lobby, for example, is all white walls and bright-orange accents. Bedrooms follow the same minimalist theme, with stark white offset by royal blue.

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

Three huge pools wind their way around the grounds, and come complete with little bridges and in-water loungers.

Pool Scene

The three pools are surrounded by sun-trap terraces that are dotted with loungers. Hammocks hung from pillars close to the water are ideal for chilled days in the sun.

Food & Drink

The main restaurant is a buffet set up, and the menu is inspired by a number of different themes during the week. There’s always a freezer on standby, though, serving ice creams for dessert.

You can grab a table at three themed places when you stay here. Dine in the open-air steak house, the Asian restaurant, or the Mexican.

Entertainment

The Riu Caribe’s entertainment team take to the stage every night, putting on shows and live music.

Four bars serve drinks in the evenings. The cocktail list is tailored, with drinks like the Riviera Maya on the list.

Sports & Activities

There’s a lot laid on activity-wise. As well as favourites like tennis, beach volleyball and aerobics, you’ve got the likes of scuba diving* and body boarding to try your hand at.

Facility Overview

The balconies at this beachside hotel all have full or partial sea views. You can also see the sea from the 3 pools, which have in-water loungers sunk into them. At night, you can look over the beach from the terrace of the steak restaurant, which is one of 4 eateries here.

Little ones have their own activities programme at the RiuLand Kids’ Club, where they can join in with games, competitions and arts and crafts.

Health & Beauty

The Renova spa* is styled in earthy colours and statues of Buddha keep the peace. The treatment list features everything from hot stone massages to mango wraps.

As well as the indoor treatment rooms, massages* are available in outdoor areas – there are pavilions by the pool and on the beach.

This ain't it. The room look like college dorms. The air don't work. We got checked in and had to get a second room because they initially gave us one bed and we asked for 2. Oh and the double bed...

quiet relaxation

in the time of covid, was a very welcome respite to get away!! The hotel has pared down some of the amenities for safeties sake, operating at lower capacity surely means a less crowded environment...
