Me and my partner have just returned from a 2 week holiday in the RIU Cancun. After reading some of the reviews on here, it made me a little worried but i can reassure everyone there is nothing wrong with this hotel! Some of the comments are so picky.. we dont go on holiday to sit in the room all day and watch tv!
We got down to the pool about 8am every day and had no problem what so ever with getting a sunbed in a decent spot! Best spot for the sun is the bottem pool by the steak house on the side closest to the beach, otherwise the sun goes in around 3ish. Or the beach is sunny all day!
The staff are so friendly and they would do anything for you, working all hours of the day for little money, bringing drinks to you on the beach and on your sunbeds.. What more can you want!
The Buffet was nice, plenty to choose from but it did get a bit boring by the end of the second week! The restaurants in the hotel are lovely, we only ate in the Brazilian and Steak House, we dont eat sushi so gave the Japanese a miss.
Lifts were slightly hot but didnt take too long to go up and down. (we were on floor 10 - AMAZING VIEWS!)
As for the hard bed comments, they have either taken notice and replaced the matresses or we just got lucky - they were absolutely fine! very comfortable!
Our room was cleaned every single day, with fresh towels, the maids work very hard! The mini bar and fridge was restocked every other day which was perfect for the pair of us.
The entertainment in the daytime was good, we didnt join in but was fun to watch. The evening entertainment was too cheesy for us but after a few drinks was happy to have it going on in the background.
Location was perfect, right near the main strip - with a few Clubs, Bars and Resturants. I was a bit dissapointed with the lack of Mexican Resturants though!
Overall we had an amazing two weeks at this hotel and we would definatly return again! Please dont let the bad reviews put you off!
