After a $15 million investment, Riu Yucatan is readying to reopen its doors on July 27.
The Riu Yucatan, the hotel chain's first property in Mexico, has invested this large sum of money in the renovation which, together with the Riu Palace Mexico, Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Riu Playacar, ClubHotel Riu Tequila, Riu Lupita and the Playacar Conference Centre, forms the RIU complex in Playa del Carmen.
The 507 rooms will receive new furniture and a brighter feel. The hotel will have three fresh water pools, including one new one and another with a swim-up bar. The hotel will debut RiuLand for tots with a menu of activities as well as a playground. Guests will also have access to sporting facilities as well as a gym, jacuzzi and spa.
Veterans of Riu Yucatan will be happy to return to the 24-hour All-Inclusive service, which includes a range of dining options from the La Hacienda buffet restaurant to specialty restaurants like Shangay for Asian cuisine and La Margarita for Mexican fare. There is also ClubHotel Riu Tequila and Sicilia, which will be the new Italian restaurant.
