First time visiting Cancun with my boyfriend and chose to stay at an all-inclusive resort. We stayed for 5 nights in August. I was excited since this resort was recommended by a friend and my expectations were all met. When we arrived, check in was quick and the waiter brought us a drink after we received our room keys. We spent most of our afternoons on the beach or in the pool, drinks in hand. My only complaint is the difficultly with booking a reservation at one of the specialty restaurants, which must be booked 2 days in advance between the hours of 8am and 8pm. We were able to make one reservation during our stay. There are two restaurants that do not require reservations but the food selection could have been better at the buffet restaurant. The resort has a sports bar as well as a cappuccino in the lobby; great place to unwind after spending time on the beach or after our meals. We booked our airport transport and excursions prior to our arrival in Cancun. During our last night, we had a couple's Swedish massage at Renova Spa inside the resort. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting other RIU resorts in other countries.
