Dear faustinolg, Thank you for sharing your thoughts! On one hand, we appreciate your positive comments regarding the good quality of our gastronomic and beverage offer, our beautiful beachside, the great work of our entertainment staff and the professional customer service our staff members provided you during your stay! On the other hand, we lament that our decoration did not match your liking and that you could not take your desired Instagram picture with our recyclable cups, which are designed to be friendlier with the environment. Lastly, we are sorry to read that you did not agree with the layout of the room and the bathroom. We would like to inform you that the design has been thought out in order to make the rooms brighter and more modern. In addition, we do have adapted rooms for handicapped people. We hope to host you again in one of our worldwide hotels in the future! Best of wishes, Hotel Riu Yucatan Online Reputation Manager
