Located on the northeast coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, this is a beautiful beachfront resort. The resort is inspired by Mediterranean architecture, right up against the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, creating an incredible backdrop for the wedding ceremony you have always dreamed of. A RIU Cancun wedding will provide you with a fun and thrilling ceremony, as well as an incredible nightlife and an adults-only nightclub.
Take a 5 minute walk to downtown Cancun and explore all it has to offer from flea markets to nightclubs, and all the rich history.
The resort will no longer accept US dollars, and does not provide currency exchange into pesos. The on-site ATM machines will allow you to withdraw pesos.
Sun at the pool and beach can sometimes be blocked in the early morning and late afternoon due to the size and way the building is facing.

“So far so good! They are very clean especially after the virus.” – Ruberman R. 6/20
“Had an amazing 10 nights stay in May last year for our honeymoon, we got champagne and fruit basket on arrival. Cleaners were fantastic leaving petals and towel animals on our bed and general cleaning duties. Food at the hotel was nice, the pizza bar was fantastic and the steak restaurant was lovely. Staff were so kind and really really happy to bring you drinks while at the beach for a tip which we didn’t mind. Even the staff who cleaned the seaweed from the seafront early every morning did a fantastic job, if I were to go back I’d go back to this hotel x thank you to everyone.” – Gemma H. 4/20
“Amazing experience at this hotel. I spent a week with my wife and it was one of the best vacations. The food was delicious and fresh. Cleanliness was up to the mark. The sports and entertainment team was the best. Check in time should be a bit flexible for early birds. Especially people coming from long flights. Would definitely recommend everyone to visit this resort and would also go back there soon” – Shabaz K. 4/19
