    Pretty good- wasn't up to my expectations seeing it as a 5 star resort.

    Resort was small- definitely not up to class with the other riu hotels, food was decent, beach overpopulated. If you want seats get up early and reserve with towels (signs say not to do it yet everyone does it anyways) Entertainment team pretty good. Probably wouldn't visit this resort again but definitely interested in other resorts that riu has to offer.

    Highly recommend Yucatan

    Amazing resort. We just returned from our trip. We stayed at the Yucatan. Our review....we had an absolute blast. Yes, the rooms are a little outdated and there is no door to the bathroom, so you have an open view to the shower. There is a door to the toilet. Very few plugs in the room. Food was great, activities were amazing, staff was wonderful, evening shows were great. Beach was great. A few days had heavier sargassum, but they worked very hard every day to help clear it. I'll post pics of this. Lower quality liquor, but okay. Overall, we would definitely stay again.

    Dream holiday

    The Hotel was perfect, food was outstanding and the complex was immaculate. Staff very friendly and helpful with anything you might want to know. I would definitely return. Very safe walking around outside the complex even at night. Trips were well organised and a reasonable price.

    Beautiful Hotel

    We've just returned home after 11 nights here. Before coming I was a bit worried about the reviews I was reading. No need to worry at all! The Hotel is fabulous, spacious and lovely and clean. The staff are fantastic! Massive shout out to Leo, Vincente, Martin,Falcon,Dulce,Felix,Lena and Betty they were Amazing! Rooms were spacious and clean we were in block 6 which was great all the animals were always around they were great to watch! Food was great always fresh and lots to choose from. Drinks were great! Beach is absolutely beautiful we spent most days at the beach never had a problem getting a sunbed after 9am. Water sports on the beach were great. I broke my foot on day 2, the staff were fantastic, tui reps were very helpful and hospital was amazing and helpful. Shame it didn't have a games room with a pool table in though! I would definitely come back to Mexico 🇲🇽
