The last thing anybody wants on vacation is to be packed into a crowded place where rest and relaxation are impossible, and with Cancun’s RIU properties, you certainly don’t have to worry about that.  The properties are so huge there’s plenty of room for a lot of guests to be able to spread out.  Most of the resorts have anywhere from 3-5 pools, beautiful green spaces for taking a walk or relaxing, and multiple restaurants to choose from.

The locations of all of the Cancun RIU properties might be another reason guests keep returning when vacationing in Cancun.  Each property is located on the beach, either on the main beaches of Cancun or in nearby Costa Mujeres, and some even have their own private beaches with chairs or hammocks set up for guest use.  The beachfront location also makes for some spectacular views from some of the rooms at these hotels and resorts.
