We really enjoyed our stay here, so did our friends (another couple). It is primarily a 30 and up crowd, which we enjoyed. We didn't want to deal with teenagers/young 20's partying it up all hours of the day. We were here to relax and have a good time. It is all inclusive and the beverages and food options were good. If you want to sit at one of the sit down/dining restaurants instead of the buffet make sure you arrive early and not when you are already starving. The beach area, pier, and pool are nice as well. They have nightly shows/events on a stage out by the pool; which was nice entertainment so we could stay and enjoy what we paid for. They play some games and have some entertainment throughout the day too. The only down fall is the losing the sun at a certain point in the day at the pool because it falls behind the building. However, I think this is probably an issue at most resorts due to them all facing the same direction.

I dont even know where to start...
This was a mess.
Now I should mention that this is a 3 star hotel but I have been to many 3 star hotels that were a lot better.
The service was indifferent...The rooms were ok.
Riu is a Spanish Chain that caters mostly to Europeans and all of their hotels are All-Inclusive.
European All-Inclusive resorts have lower standards so that is one of the major differences.
The food was verging on bad...and you had to make reservations 3 days in advance for any specialty restaurants or you were syuck at the buffet.
I hated this so much I cant even reccomend it.

De las mejores vistas de Cancún. Además de un excelente servicio, las habitaciones del Hotel Riu Cancún tienen vistas espectaculares hacia el mar color turquesa de Cancún. En mi estancia disfruté de unos días de relajación gracias a que tienen servicio Todo Incluido las 24 horas. Entre la playa y mi habitación también me di un espacio para ir al centro wellness con excelentes tratamientos locales. El buffet principal fue uno de mis favoritos ya que contó con platillos mexicanos. Durante el día es posible elegir entre diferentes actividades acuáticas, mientras que por las noches puedes disfrutar de espectáculos en vivo o ir a bailar en la discoteca del hotel.
