We have just returned from the Riu Yucatan and have had a wonderful holiday. The hotel is right on a beautiful beach and the hotel pools are brilliant, clean and lovely and warm. We could always find a sun bed round one of the pools or on the beach, although the best spots were reserved with towels etc. very early in the morning. The food is varied and very good and there is no restriction on the number of times the speciality restaurants can be used.
it is quite easy to walk to 5th Avenue either along the beach or by the road, there you will find bars and shops and lots of night life. A taxi only costs about £5 if you find the walk too much. We went to Coco Bongos which is worth a visit but makes for a very late night.
The only down side to this resort is the damp smell in the rooms, due to the humidity, but if you are not happy with your room the staff are very obliging and will do their best to find one to your satisfaction. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
