  • The hotel looks pretty new
  • Beds are awesome, very comfortable for a good rest and sleep

Karen's restaurant (playa del Carmen)

  • I got to this place after recommendation from the hotel  receptionist, who also provided a 10% discount coupon. Later, I found out that I could get a 10% discount at the front of the restaurant too, from one of the employees standing on the front)
  • Pretty good food , very good service, and live music. I recommend the Mexican Parrillada

Hotel Riu Tequila

Big hotel, all included (lots of very good food and drinks included)

Hotel Riu Yucatán

This Riu hotel seems to be nicer than the Riu Tequila.
