"great if youre on a budget"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Sep 20, 2012
Stayed here for only 2 nights, and although it is the least fancy of the other Riu hotels in the area, it is also the cheapest, so it makes sense. If you're trying to save money I would stay here because as a guest of Riu Lupita, you get access to use the facilities at the other fancier Rius, Tequila, Playacar and yucatan, which are all within walking distance, or a short shuttle bus drive. Playacar and yucatan have nicer, less crowded pools and have access to the beach , which is very nice and clean. you can also get drinks, breakfast and/or lunch at any of the 4 (Just not the Riu palace). The snack bar was okay, can hold you over till the next meal, and the buffet is better. nothing extrodinary, but good. I liked the breakfast buffet more than the dinner buffet. All the staff is super friendly and work hard to serve you, especially the bartenders and servers. The bed was a little hard, but not enough to disturb your sleep, plenty of alcohol/drinks in the mini fridge.
