The rooms are always clean. There are mini fridges with beer, pop and water and booze dispensers. The grounds are...

Room was a good size but a few minor issues - plug socket was hanging off the wall and toilet extractor fan did not work. The glass shower door was no issue - we took some pegs and pegged a towel over the door. Minifridge...

Husband and I stayed for 6 nights, had an awesome time. Beach is beautiful, resort very clean and well maintained. Food was good with some selections at the buffet being very good. Service is outstanding everywhere in the resort. Close to Playa Del Carmen if you need more excitement! Also very close to playa car plaza for shopping. Highly recommended!

Stayed for one week in January. By far this is the best beach we have stayed at in Mexico. Very wide and long without any rocks at all. Rui Yucatan is a medium sized property and not too big. Most rooms centrally located close to pool and ocean. Just three restaurants, one requiring reservations. Italian restaurant was fine but nothing...

Facility is very well maintained and cleaned. Food is great, lots of options for the picky eater. Wouldn't call it a five star, but definitely a good solid 4. A couple minor things... all the light switches in our room were dirty. They were supposed to restock fridge (beer, alcohol, water and pop) every two days. Hadn't been by in...

This was our first visit to Mexico and we were not disappointed! We received a very warm welcome from the minute we got off the plane to the minute we arrived at the hotel where we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist. The hotel is situated in a gated community amongst a number of other hotels, many of which...
