This resort topped them all. Playacar is a gated community in which the hotel resides. Cleanest place we have stayed. Delicious variety of food from 5 restaurants. Lots of activities and entertainment. Privledges at 2 other resorts in walking distance. Beautiful white beach. Hotel rooms as pictured in Expedia. Unique coridor off the main hall that divides into two separate rooms-kept the hall noise down and ability to lock main coridor door and keep two room doors open when traveling together. Grocery store and gift shopping across the street. Safe walking a couple miles to Mayan ruins. Staff very frendly and attentive. Large diverse guest population. I don't have a negative thing to say about this resort and 5 day stay. It will be our go to place for all future travel.

A nice clean and smaller RIU. Great location with shopping across the street, if you don’t want to go into Playa de Carmen. There are some Mayans down the road and a bird sanctuary you can explore. And also a half an hour walk down to 5th Ave to Playa.

Here is the not so good: We had a party of 7 with 3 rooms. The beds were pushed together to form one big bed. Not very comfortable for 3 people and the beds are awful, think motel 6 style. There are a lot of smokers at this hotel it seems. The good: Froy in the lobby bar was amazing. The grounds are clean and well kept. There are sufficient chairs on beach or by pool. Food was very good for an all inclusive and there were plenty of options. The service is top notch. We would stay again becuase if the positives but they can certainly use an upgrade on the rooms.

Beside the hotel is in a great area, the staff been so great and beverages selections is good, the hotel food is TERRIBLE. Every single restaurant is a buffet style some how, dinner in some restaurants only part of the menu is A la Carte and the rest of the food again is buffet style and yes the selection is big, but by the time you serve yourself the meats, fish, pasta, rice or anything else is way overcooked and dry that is tasteless. Pool food is full of hotdogs, burgers, pizza and French fries, what happen with a good taco, guacamole and some delicious MEXICAN FOOD. There is NO a room service instead they have a snack area overnight full of frozen/microwave food, YES!!!! Microwaveable food. Mexican Gastronomy is recognized all over the world for been one of the best and non was represented on this hotel, I didn’t travel to Mexico to eat burgers or buffets and definitely no microwaveable food, out of my 7 days staying we eat 4 days outside and my all-inclusive money when out of the window. Very disappointed, very upset and mostly very certain that I will NOT comeback to this hotel or any of the RIU chain because I am afraid that will be the same.

Very nice hotel. Room was comfortable and the balcony was nice. Noise was an issue sometimes as we could hear a lot of commotion in the hallway when sleeping. Beach did not have enough loungers, also the beach area itself is small. Food was decent, the New Year’s feast was spectacular. Room keys kept malfunctioning towards the end of our stay. Staff was mostly kind. We did not enter the pools only the beach!
