RIU Playacar in Mexico reopens following refurbishment programme

Following an extensive renovation programme, the RIU Playacar has finally reopened to guests.

The hotel in Playa del Carmen near Cancun in Mexico underwent a $32 million refurbishment project that has transformed the property into a modern haven on the coast for holidaymakers.

The resort’s 396 guest rooms and suites have been upgraded and feature new furniture and décor in shades of blue. Modern amenities include flat-screen TVs, electronic safes, and newly-renovated bathrooms.

Facilities have also undergone a makeover with the remodelling of the lobby and reception area, and four bars.

Restaurants at RIU Playacar have been transformed and guests can savour delicious international cuisine at The Palms with its three thematic areas: the Asian restaurant Jade, Italian restaurant Traviata, and the steakhouse Turquesa.

The property’s gardens have been redesigned, with the creation of three swimming pools, and a children's pool with slides. The pool bar, Las Olas, and the solarium-terrace have been redesigned, and the gym and Renova Spa wellness centre have been refurbished.

Guests will enjoy an all-inclusive service that include water sports and activities on the beach, theatre shows and live music, and all-night dancing at the La Piñata Club at the neighbouring RIU Tequila.

Families are extremely well-catered to here too, with a children's pool complete with fun slides and a dedicated entertainment programme at Riu Land with crafts and activities organised daily for children aged 4 to 7 and 8 to 12.

Situated on the strip of Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, and the city is full of beachfront hotels and resorts, gourmet restaurants, nightclubs, tourist attractions, shops and boutiques, world-class golf courses, and fun activities.

Playa del Carmen is located nearby and is home to white sand beaches surrounded by acres of tropical jungle and lush mangroves.

Holidaymakers can go zip lining through lush jungles; scuba diving beneath the surface of the crystal clear turquoise ocean to explore the famous underwater museum and spectacular marine life; trekking through lush rainforests that are thriving with diverse wildlife; or take tours to the region’s ancient Mayan ruins and temples.

RIU Hotels & Resorts is a family-run Spanish hotel chain with over 100 hotels in 16 countries across the world.
