We are going to the RIU Yucatan 7/12/08-7/19/08

How was the beach? Were the beds as hard as everyone says? LOL!

Did You do any tours or go into Playa?

Also did you request to stay in a certain section of the resort or just took what they gave you?

Thanks for anyinfo, this will be our first visit to Mexico, have been to Punta Cana several times & have stayed in RIU's there & always had a great time!

We went 3 years ago had a wonderful time. Thinking of returning next year. There are two things putting us off though There has been lots of talk about the beach been washed away is this true? Quite a bit went to Hurricane Emily 2 weeks before we visited (August 2006) so was wondering what was left. The second thing is we stayed in the Riu Negril in Jamaica the year after and there was a midnight cut off for the drinks unless you went in the disco. When we stayed at the Yucatan only the lobby bar served after midnight, but this was ok. We met lots of people over a drink at that bar and the bar man Roger was an excellent host to be honest this made our holiday as much as the wonderful hotel.

I have to say I am impressed to see that some of the same bartenders are still working at the Yucatan that were there when we stayed in Feb of 2005. I have seen some recent photos posted of the guys. They were what impressed us most and made our trip great. We have not encountered any staff like them at the other resorts nearby. Anyone who goes here will appreciate their service!
