Riu Cancun Opening Following Renovations

Word is starting to come out about the completion of the Riu Cancun renovations.  The resort was reportedly re-opened as of Aug. 2, 2014, having had a $30 million makeover.  Here is a list of the renovations:

  • The renovation has affected all rooms, restaurants, pool areas, gardens, lobby, and resort façade (in other words, it was a “gut job”).
  • Contemporary metal and glass entrance
  • New lobby
  • Bathrooms of non-suites now have a large shower instead of a tub/shower combo.  Suites also have a whirlpool tub.
  • Rooms now have digital safes, 40-inch flat screen TV’s, and WiFi.
  • Four bars have been remodeled including the swim-up bar.
  • There are four pools with all new designs including one new infinity pool.
  • Main restaurant Miramar has been renovated along with the pool restaurant which is now divided into two sections (one which is enclosed with A/C and heat, and an outdoor terrace which offers an evening steakhouse).
  • Addition of a new Italian restaurant, La Toscana.

There are pics starting to come in as well, check out the one on Twitter by Travelbybob:  https://twitter.com/travelbybob/status/493182845406691328/photo/1.  Also, check out the new Riu Cancun resort reviews on TripAdvisor.com and look under the Traveler Photos to see the new additions and changes.  It’s been a while in coming, but the changes initially look awesome.

    • Sorry for this late post, I have been out of town. This YouTube video was just posted a few days ago and should give you a better visual of the new renovations. I like the refurbishment, what do you think?
