Definitely a 5 star hotel .We had an amazing holiday .When we arrived at the hotel the reception area very clean ,and very spacious with great decor . The check in staff at reception where so friendly and we received a very warm welcome to the hotel and we where asked if we would like a twin bed room or a king size bed we took the king size as I was on holiday with my husband ; we thought having this choice was lovely and great . The bedroom was a great size and the double skinks were great .Big spacious shower .Great view of the gardens and we could see the sea from our balcony . Staff in the main Buffet restaurant were so lovely and friendly excellent service from staff at all times .The food from the main buffet restaurant was great breakfast , lunch and dinner . The dinner at the Italian restaurant was great. Bar staff where great and service was excellent Bar staff went to the beach to provide guests with drinks and this service was excellent and work very hard . Drinks served around the pools too . Loved the choice of 5 pools outstanding so was the splash world slides great fun . Beautiful gardens and kept immaculate by the gardening team . I used the Renova spa and had the Tropical Dream massage the was amazing and relaxing my skin felt amazing afterwards lasted 2hrs so worth the money .

    The (mostly) Good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Just returned from a 5 day stay at Riu Latino and here is my no frills, unopinionated (mostly) review of the place. First off, unlike a lot of the reviewers here, I know you REALLY don't care if Pepe made the best drinks, Maria was the nicest maid, or Pablo in animacion was a great dancer. Here is the nitty, gritty stuff you need to know. 40 minutes from Cancun airport you will have arrived. This place is listed as a 5 star but it's really more like a 4 or 4+. There is no room service, no butler service and the a la cartes are mediocre at best. That being said I would rate the buffet as one of the better ones I've ever been to with an excellent, varied selection. Large and spacious, with plenty of tables and a top notch staff that don't keep you waiting and are always pleasant. The 3 other restaurants are a bad Italian, buffet only Japanese, and a good seafood/steak place. Alcohol is plentiful and varied at all 7 bars with excellent, capable bartenders. The 4 pools, 2 with swim up bars, and 5 water slide park are excellent, warm and clean with plenty of shaded lounging options. The beach is average. The sand is tough to walk through until you reach the surf but then you can go for miles in both directions. The water was cloudy and very warm but had lots of grassy debris. I'm sure its better in other months. The water also gets deep after just a few feet. There are plenty of loungers but they run out of umbrellas by about 10am. At one end you could find a half dozen hammocks under palm trees if you felt like a nap. Servers would come by often with a tray loaded with mixed drinks to pick from as there is no bar near the beach. The nearest bathroom was a good hike as well. No vendors on the beach, just the usual massage ladies. They will ask you 20 times a day if you want a massage but graciously take "no thank you" for an answer. I don't really care about the shows at night but they seemed decent. The rooms are modern, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Coat hangers, a safe, hair dryer, iron, everything you need. Keep in mind the place is only 2 years old so nothing is beat up. The large gift shop has plenty and is open early and late. The sports bar has snacks 24 hours. Hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, tacos etc. I read one reviewer who said he was "literally starving". I honestly can't imagine what this guy eats on a daily basis. I didn't encounter a single rude or unpleasant staff member here during my stay. Not a single one. They are all excellent, smiling and ready to help. Our safe wouldn't unlock one day so I had to go to the front desk for help. She said a technician would be there in 5 minutes. He was there in 5 minutes. I read one reviewer who went on and on about how horrible everyone treated her during her stay. She either stayed elsewhere and made a mistake or is the most awful, entitled princess on the planet. The atmosphere is more party than relaxed. If you are over 55 and looking for a quiet, peaceful week, perhaps look elsewhere. If you are 20-30 and want to party dusk till dawn you could do a lot worse than this place! We were woken at least 3 times a night every night until dawn by people yelling down the halls as they went stumbling to their rooms. It is what it is. The A/C units in the rooms are loud enough to wake the dead when they kick on. You've been warned. I think I've covered it all. Hope this helps, enjoy!

    Good experience

    Went on a last-minute trip with my mom to this resort. (Travelled June 3-7, 2024) Beach: We carefully chose this place because we’d heard that seaweed season was in effect and we didn’t want to go somewhere where the beaches were non-swimmable. There was some seaweed but the waters were still clear enough to swim in. There were enough beach chairs and umbrellas by the beach. Temperature: Perfect temperature and weather (28-31 degrees) - no rain or cloudy days, during our time there. Pool: 4 pools (2 with swim up bars). All of them shallow throughout, going up to a little over 4 feet in height. There were enough pool side chairs and cabanas that didn’t need to be reserved. Resort: We chose an adult-only resort so that there weren’t any screaming/crying or children running around. Everyone was very mindful of each other and it was very peaceful. The resort is very new and very very clean! Workers did their best to keep it clean throughout. Number 1 in cleanliness. Food and drink: 5/10. A bit surprising for Mexico, but food was mediocre and rather bland. Their specialty restaurants (4 in total) don’t need reservation but weren’t worth going to. We ended up staying with the main buffet. They need to work on their food and flavors. Lots of variety but it all tasted the same. Drinks were very watered down but tasty! Service: excellent. All the waiters and bellboys and front desk were so great. Kudos to all of them for being so receptive and prompt! Entertainment: not a lot to do, but there is a main stage area where there are a few shows every night. Karaoke night was the best but too short. They limit it to one hour. There’s only one souvenir shop on site, so there’s not much to look at…but if your aim is to sleep, eat and relax, this place is for you. room: exceptionally clean. We opted for an ocean-view room. We were given a room on the 4th floor. The ocean was to the side and not front-facing. Close to the pools and easily accessible by elevator. Beds were squeaky and pillows were tiny and not fluffy. Air conditioning was good. Water pressure was great. Mini refrigerator was fully stocked and all contents free to drink. Overall review: very good resort. New and out of the busy Cancun hotel strip. Affordable and clean and chill. If the food and entertainment were improved upon, we would return. Otherwise, there are other all-inclusive hotels we would rather go to.

    Don’t miss this!

    This place is absolutely fantastic! Some of the food was meh, but we didn’t starve. Cesar at the swim up bar is the best and Charley at baggage is very helpful and knowledgeable. I was hesitant at first, but this one is a winner! Absolutely amazing pools, clean beach, friendly staff, it was the best!

    Manny best worker at RIU Latino

    Manny was the best. He was very professional and relatable. You can see by the way he carry himself he is a very good man. Respectful, honest and great man. Each time we return to a different bar we were looking for Manny reason the other bartenders were not as involved as Manny. You can tell he would get tired and he would hit a second gear with a smile. He is definitely a man for his family.
