The new Riu Cancun has a modern look and new services that are a perfect addition to its excellent location on the seafront and in the heart of Cancun's hotel zone. All this, together with its 24-hour, All Inclusive programme, have made it, since its initial opening in 2003, one of the most popular RIU hotels in Mexico. The renovation, an investment totalling 30 million dollars, included all the guests’ rooms, restaurants, pool areas and gardens as well as the lobby and façade.


Guests will be pleasantly surprised when they arrive as they are greeted by a modern metal and glass entrance, while the lobby has been completely redesigned to offer a new look and atmosphere.

Rooms at the Riu Cancun have been fully refurbished with a fresh, modern style using light colours that contrast with a cheerful pink and purple. Large showers replace baths, except in the suites which have, in addition to the shower, a whirlpool bath. There are new items to make guests’ stays more convenient such as electronic safes, flat screen 40" TVs and WiFi internet connection.

The main restaurant Miramar has also been renovated as has the pool restaurant which is now divided into two sections: the Coral area, enclosed and heated, and the Turquoise terrace, which offers an evening steakhouse menu so that diners can enjoy dinners under a sea breeze. In addition, the hotel has a Japanese restaurant, Kawachi and a new Italian restaurant, La Toscana. All are part of the All Inclusive RIU programme, which has no limits on the number of reservations during your stay.

The four bars have also been renovated, the most notable of which being the new aquatic bar, Wet’n Drinking and the large Bar Lounge La Fiesta that now has a large terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea, and keeps its enclosed area. All the green areas, terraces and swimming pools have been completely redesigned, there are now three pools with new designs and a fourth newly built pool, infinity.
