    I am currently looking to book my honeymoon at either Riu Playacar or Riu Yucatan. Can anyone tell me which would be the best resort? I have been to Mexico multiple times and stayed on the same Playacar beach at Sandos. I also do like how Riu Playacar is recently upgraded.

    Hi, At the hotel they say that you need to make a reservation, but you can just turn up. Be aware that at least the Asian is not a la carte, it's just a buffet with Asian food. Hope this helps.
