What can I say? We had a fantastic holiday at the Riu Lupita, check-in was smooth, and we were greeted with a welcome drink. The hotel rooms were lovely and the shower quite sturdy, which was nice!
The only downside is that with my children being 15 and 18 we had to have two separate rooms (which I had requested overlooking the quiet pool), and the places we were given were on different floors, so I felt a bit uneasy about this at first.
The staff in the buffet restaurant couldn’t do enough for you, they were so lovely with the helmet diving cozumel tour tips, and I looked forward to seeing them as they were so beautiful, especially David and the other lady who is in the picture below. The food was amazing, never got bored and didn’t even go to the Italian, steakhouse or Mexican.
The MAJOR problem I do have is that we were not told by our tour operator that the private beach was closed even though I had phoned them the week before we went to find out… we were looking forward to the private beach and pool, we could use the beach at the Playacar, but this wasn’t for us, too noisy and big.
You must go to Holbox if you can see it really is Paradise but not cheap to go, for a.family of four it was £532 again this was booked through the tour operator ( who use a second party for the trip) 5th Avenue was an experience you do get hassled and it got a bit much. Sometimes, which spoilt the background, if they just let you look.
And leave you alone I think there would be more chance of people buying! Oh yeah and haggle, we got a poncho from $45 to $20. All in all a great holiday, the lady who drives the bus to the beach and 5th Avenue was ace, pleased .and.played good music!
Excellent place. Having read several bad reviews of the food, I have to say that the people leaving bad reviews must have had a different experience, or something has dramatically changed. All of the food was the excellent quality, diverse, and not repetitive day today. The waiting staff (Ceasaro in particular) were excellent, attentive, and well turned out.
