Great stay!
We had a great stay at Riu Lupita. The resort is small, but intimate. The location is good, and it's wonderful to have access to the other location on the beach (just a short, free shuttle ride). The rooms are okay, and like a few other people said - there is a musty, damp smell. But they're comfortable enough and the resort is small, so you're always close to everything. The food was decent and comparable to other resorts. The drinks were good, accessible, and diverse. The entertainment was good - there wasn't a lot of it, but we enjoyed everything. I also went to the spa for a pedicure and it was great - affordable, good, and friendly service. What makes this resort great, though, is the service. It was phenomenal. Every one was very friendly, personable, and helpful. We stayed 3 nights here and then 3 nights at a larger resort in Cancun, and the service really stood out at Riu Lupita. Although we expected to like the next (nicer) resort more, we like Riu Lupita better. We would choose this resort over another next time. If you are looking for a great stay, with great service, and more intimate - choose Riu Lupita.
