Riu Yucatan

Riu Yucatan Photo

Riu Yucatan
Ever since it opened as the original Riu on the Riviera Maya, the Riu Yucatan has been causing a great sensation! Themed in an early Mexican Colonial style, the resort features a lobby modeled after an authentic Mexican town with hand-painted frescos of flowers, angels and clouds. The Hacienda Restaurant extends to a terrace amidst jungle greenery, offering a great variety of tantalizing buffets and on-the-spot cooking. Guests are sure to enjoy the informal atmosphere of Margarita's specialty restaurant, as they dine alongside the large pool area and take part in the delightful theme nights. Relax beneath one of the many palm trees sprinkled along the white sand beach, or enjoy the array of water sports for fun in the clear waters of the Caribbean. Play tennis on one of three lighted courts, or sip a sunset cocktail in one of four bars. Bright spacious garden rooms come with two double beds, mini fridge and bar. The Riu Yucatan is a great choice for families and couples. 507 air-conditioned rooms.
