"My friends and I stayed at the Riu Playacar in July 2012. The hotel is actually 3-star not 5-star. But, the pool, beach and food are great. The staff and guests are very nice also. I especially liked that there were palm trees on the beach instead of beach umbrellas. The hotel’s alcaholic drinks are not watered-down like the discos in town. The air-conditioning in the room is not so great. The chamber maids are cheap with the soap. They want you to use your old soap from previous days. It’s not fun to go out and beg them for more soap. The thing to look out for is that the scuba diving company wants to be fully pre-paid in advance, before they train you for it. They will not give a refund if you can not actually go on the scuba diving trip for medical reasons or if you dont like the starter class. They do their best to avoid a refund. They are not like American companies that give refunds to maintain customer satisfaction. Before the scuba diving is paid for, they are so nice and friendly. But, if you want a legitimite refund, suddenly they become all about the money and not so friendly. So, as far as the scuba diving is concerned in this hotel, it’s buyer beware!" – Debbie from New York, New York
"Our family of four spent 7 days at the beautiful Riu Playacar. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. The property was wonderfully maintained. Our rooms were very comfortable. The set up allowed for complete privacy between our two rooms. Very convenient. More like a suite instead of two separate rooms. The buffets were enjoyable with so many choices. The Playacar is a family friendly resort, not a spring break getaway. The Playa Del Carmen area is gorgeous with many activities and tours. I will recommend the Riu resorts to everyone." – Melissa from Grand Junction, Colorado
