Riu has reopened one of its most popular all-inclusive hotels in the Mexican Caribbean, the company announced this week.
The Riu Tequila has relaunched in Playa del Carmen on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, following a large-scale renovation project.
The renovation included transformed culinary offerings and a totally redesigned pool area, among other changes.
Changes to the pool included a transformation from two large pools to a total of five rectangular pools, including one dedicated for children.
The Riu Tequila has also added new offerings for kids, including a MiniClub and a playground, adjacent to a new gym and “Riu Fit” area.
Upgrades include the addition of free Wi-Fi throughout the property, along with a hotel disco called Pacha.
The culinary changes are also wholesale, with a new steakhouse called Black Cow; a 24-hour sports bar; a lobby bar; a cocktail lounge called La Fiesta and a new Italian eatery called Rinascita.
It’s all part of what is a sleek new look for the more than 600-room hotel property.
Riu has a collection of 20 resorts across Mexico.
