Riu Cancun is certainly a party hotel, lots of young adults drunk to the hilt. One young girl was so inebriated she literally peed herself at the pool bar before her friends carted her off to bed!
Now I like to have fun and I must be getting old but was really annoyed by this fact and the alcohol continued to flow while drunken youth nearly drowned in the pool. Finally security stepped in to stop the party at least for an hour.
The rooms are dated and could use a refresh ... the smell of vomit wafts in the hotel lobby bar which is a bit gross, as there is old carpet on the floor. Considering the way past drunk patrons I don't doubt there was an accident or two.
Staff are hard working and really kind and funny. They crack lots of jokes and ensure your table is cleared while dining. The food is probably one of the better all inclusives I've had to date. Lots of fresh vegetables, fish and fruit.
The adult beach area is the best! Soft white sand almost no rocks and a quiet area to escape the partiers.
So all in all if I was 20-25 this would have been the most amazing vacation ever if all I wanted to do was drink my face off. We took the offer to go to their sister hotel in Playa Del Carmen and we were sure glad we did! We finished off the vacation at a more family oriented hotel and a bit more quiet. Now I can say I've been to Cancun ... don't think I'll return but I will continue to head to the Mayan Riviera and the Riu properties there.
