Good trip to Cancun!

Travelled to Riu Cancun during Canadian March break 2019, family of 4. Food: Very good, large variety at buffet, i.e seafood, pastas, meats, Asian food, Mexican food, desserts, etc. All three meals, breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the buffet(Miramar/Turquesa) were very delicious. Often they had grill at the pool for lunch. All a la carte restaurants(Japanese/Steakhouse/Italian/Kulinarium) were amazing! Fantastic service by waiters, bar staff, kitchen staff, and resort throughout. Beach: White sand, clear turquoise water, some areas have rocks on the ocean floor, plenty of beach loungers available at all times. Pools: 3 pools in total, family oriented one, swim up bar adults pool, and a quiet pool with a warm tub. Rooms: Great views of beach and ocean, clean, beds so so, weak sound insulation therefore can hear neighbors. Property: Modern, medium sized, clean. Amenities: Very close to bars, restaurants, flea markets, malls, etc. VERY SAFE! Lots to do, mainly tourists everywhere. Entertainment staff: Funny, skilled(dancing), interactive, give 100% to entertain there guests. Shows at night were really good, i.e Bruno Mars, Madonna, Beyonce, to classics like Queen, Guns and roses, Abba, Cher, etc. We would return but not during any spring break, alot of obnoxious (Brits/Americans/young men and women) drinking, swearing, returning from the discos after hours and making noise in hallways and rooms. Called security and they dealt with it fairly quick. Lack of washrooms available around beach/pool area, one by sports bar, one in lobby, and one in quiet pool area. Good vacation overall, loved Cancun!

The strong points
Food, property, near by amenities, beach, entertainment

The weak points
Lack of washrooms near pool/ beach area, room walls to thin, spring break attracts undesirable patrons.
