    Riu Cancun

    RIU CANCUN

    We stayed here in September 2003.

    Walked in to a beautiful huge lobby, and we were handed a welcome drink.

    We met Maribel at the front desk, and she could not have been sweeter!
    She gave us our towel cards, lock for our safe, our wristbands, and a list of the restaurants.

    She said our room was ready, and if we were not satisfied to call her, and she would see to it that we'd be moved to a different room.

    Now that's customer service with a smile! We were impressed!

    The bellboy took our luggage, and we headed to our room on the top floor, room 1512.

    We took the elevator up to room 1512, and immediately stepped out on the balcony...........
    WOW! ... What a view!

    Our room was nice, 2 double beds pushed together, 2 nightstands, a small table with 2 chairs, a dresser with adequate drawer space, a large closet with lots of hangers. There was a clock radio, a t.v., a hairdryer, a safe in the closet, and our very own liquor dispenser.

    We had a mini bar filled with Corona, Pepsi, 7 UP, and lots of bottled water.
    All of this was included in the all-inclusive price.

    The hotel provided soap, shampoo, bath gel and a shower cap.

    There was a private balcony with 2 chairs and a small table.
    Everything was spotlessly clean.
    We never saw a bug or even an iguana the entire time at the hotel.

    We were very satisfied with our room, and the view from our balcony was just breathtaking!

    We were so pleased with the Riu. The hotel is beautiful.

    You never felt "crowded", there were plenty of lounge chairs, we never waited for a drink or a buffet line.

    And the service was superb!
    Every employee greeted us when we passed by, and they always had a smile on their face.

    This hotel is in a great location, the staff was friendly, the service was excellent, and the
    food was good, always a big variety.
    They had entertainment every night, and they also had a disco.
    We would recommend the Riu Cancun! :cool:

    I love the liquor dispenser

    My friend and I are going in June for a girl's week. I love the liquor dispenser....we will get a kick out of that now that we are old.

    I just talked my hubby into going The first full week of April. we will be staying at the GR Solaris.

    I booked the June trip several months ago and I can't wait to see the RIU and those cute little liquor dispensers. I think we can get some funny pictures out of that.

    I dont know for sure with the Riu, but I do know that many hotels include a pass for Senor Frogs on their bracelets, so there is a good chance it is true. But this will only be a 'no cover charge' not open bar so will save you $5 or so. You'll still have to pay for drinks. Carlos N Charlies is free cover anyway, so there is nothing to be saved there.

    Hey Hey Hey....


    I am planning a trip for my crew of of 10 ( 4 boys / 6 gals ) all in our mid twenties who love to party and have a good time... We are an all smiles no drama crowd who usually end up on top of the bar / tables @ the clubs and wanted to get some opinions of the RIU...

    Some are partial to the Oasis / Grand Oasis and others partial to the RIU... We like the style / new feautes of the RIU and figure we can have a good time / start a party anywhere but are also attracted to the party atmosphere of the Oasis/Grand Oasis...

    - HAs anyone been to both?
    - Any strong recomendations
    - Hows the AI package @ RIU
    - How many bars / resturaunts does the RIU have and how late are they open?
    - Can we ask for doubles @ the bar w/ AI & would they allow my Beer Bong down in the pool area?
    - ANy events / shows / activities @ the bar / pool?

    Thanks in advance...
