Staying at RIU Tequila, playing at all 4 riu s?

Hello!

We've booked at RIU Tequila, does anybody have any comments about being able to have access to all 4 of the RIU resorts. Can we drink at any of the bars? I've been told we will have to go back to RIU Tequilla to eat, other then at the beach. Is that the case?

You can use all the facilities of the Tequila, Yucatan, Playacar and Lupita but you are expected to eat dinner at your own resort. Bars/breakfast/lunch all ok at the others. You don't though have access to the two Riu Palaces.

Daniel,

As mentioned, can use all the resorts with the exception of Palace. If the beach club at the Tequilla gets too busy, I would highly recomend going down to the Lupita Beach Club. It is quite lovely there, never as crowded as Tequila / Yukatn beach, and you can get food, beer and wine.

Beach club is about a 10 minue walk towards playa del carmen (turn left exiting the resort) located right beside the second RIU Palace. You will pass a Palace on the way there. You can also catch the Lupita shuttle at the entrance, which will drop you off at the entrance to 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen.

Tahnk you for that info. We are going to the tequila for two weeks and would like to go into town quite a bit. Hopefully it is easily marked. Can you catch the shuttle back from town?

Yep. It will pick you up across the street from where it drops you off. It runs every 30 minute, and I think it leaves the beach club 15 mins past and 15 mins to the hour, and leaves the Lupita resort on the hour and half hour. Drops passengers off from the Lupita going to Playa on the way to the beach club, and this is when you would get back on. So pickup from 5th Ave back to the beach club would be around 5 mins after the hour and 35 mins after the hour. The schedule is posted right at the entrance to the beach club.

You can even take a day trip up to Cancun and use the non Palace hotels. The Riu Cancun and the Riu Caribe, well worth the effort in our opinion.
