Tucked inside a palm grove in the quiet resort of Playacar, the Riu Tequila is a retreat. It only takes five minutes to walk to a peaceful platinum-shine beach from here.
This hotel is in a relaxed part of the Caribbean Coast. When you want to up the tempo, the colourful resort of Playa del Carmen is a five-minute drive away.
The hotel’s two swimming pools are framed by sun terraces dotted with coconut thatch umbrellas. The pièce de résistance is the enormous thatched swim-up bar.
You’ll find in-water loungers in among the hotel’s two swimming pools. Plus, there's a roomy sun terrace.
FOOD & DRINK
Big buffet breakfasts get the day off to a flying start. Later a steakhouse, an Asian restaurant and a Mexican eatery join the buffet on the billing.
The Riu Tequila is sistered with two other Riu hotels. If you want a change of scene, you can use the restaurants at the Riu Yucatan and Riu Playacar during the day.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Water sports are left right and centre at this hotel. You can try catamaran sailing, kayaking and body boarding while you’re here.
If you go to the Riu Yucatan, close by, you can use the snorkelling gear at the water sports centre.
There’s something in the spotlight on the big stage every evening. The billing on one night might be a show, the next it could be a musical act.
There’s a nightclub at this hotel. It’s called Pinata and it’s open late. The drinks here are all part of your All Inclusive package.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
There’s a Renova spa* pavilion close to the neighbouring Riu Yucatan. It’s scented by candles and you can get treatments like Swedish massages here.
Rooms here are classic in style yet warm and bright with lots of natural light. They feature air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, and satellite TV. Plus, you’ll also have a balcony or terrace. They sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults.
