The atmosphere is enthralling! Enter a lobby adorned by grand pillars, arches, iron lanterns, ceilings of painted swirls, and mosaics with suspended fans reminiscent of the classic film, "Casablanca." The resort's very own trolley sweeps guests through landscaped gardens, past a raised gazebo bar, arriving at the private Riu Beach Club. Great-carved doors open to the Jalisco Restaurant, bedecked in early Mexican dicor with an extensive international buffet. Or enjoy informal dining at the Lupita Restaurant (reservations required). Tropical greenery and boulder rock landscaping encase a gorgeous swimming pool, and the La Pinata Disco attracts the dancing crowd from all of the Riu hotels. Great choice for families and the young at heart. 568 air-conditioned rooms.
The All-Inclusive program includes all domestic and international alcoholic drinks in any of the bars, restaurants and hotel discos, as well as the re-stocking of the mini-bar. There are three lighted tennis courts, a Mini-Club and fully equipped gym.
Riu Tequila is just 3 km from the small town of Playa del Carmen, with its restaurants, shops, bars and nightlife. The convenient location makes the island of Cozumel and the archaeological sites of the Yucatan easily accessible.
The Riu Tequila shares the same beach as The Riu Yucatan, which is just 400 meters away (5 minutes walking distance). The resort does provide shuttle service to the beach, where guests will find free towels and sun umbrellas.
The beautiful gardens surround a fresh water pool area of 1,500 square meters, with an artificial beach, a separate pool for children, and jacuzzi. There are also free towels, loungers and sun umbrellas.
The championship-level golf course was carved right out of the jungle by the Robert Von Hagge Associates. This 7,202 yard course is rated 73.1 and has plenty of tee boxes for every level of play. It is situated next to Playa del Carmen.
