The Riu Cancun resort will be closed from May 2014 through the end of July 2014 for a complete renovation. As is typical for these type of resort renovations, there is not a lot of official word out about the extent of the renovations from Riu headquarters; however, rumor has it that a theater will be added, restaurants will be relocated, the pool will be re-done, and guest rooms will undergo full renovations. As of this date, the outdoor renovations are still being worked on as well as working on room balconies. Given the scope of this renovation, the re-opening date may be in question.
