GBP Akumal, Golden Rooms.......

We have leaflets stuck in our doors asking if we'd like to spend some time 'visiting' Riu Playa Del Carmen, particularly if going home soon anyway as it's closer to the airport!

Sounds like GBP currently overbooked again.........

We were tempted to do that in February when we received that option....the big problem is they want you out your room by 10am and the room at the Rui or what ever they offering isn't ready till 3. They were offering the new Hard Rock back in Feb. 2014

Since 1st only had 1 afternoon when it was a proper thunderstorm for a few hours, block 66 had it pouring in under their doors! Rest of time mostly humid &sunny, quite breezy location but very pleasant.

Would only consider move to Riu if in last couple of days as gbp & golden rooms big & comfy, tho a touch 'tired'. Might be full but still plenty sun beds, particularly on beach. Be wary of moving mid holiday in case they aren't too quick to bring you back!

Think those with Thomson safe enough, the independant travellers are most likely targets for being dumped elsewhere on arrival think.
