TORONTO — Following a $30 million renovation, the Riu Cancun reopens this month and is exclusive to Signature Vacations in Canada.

Centrally located, this all-inclusive beachfront property features completely renovated and upgraded guest rooms, revamped on-site restaurants, and a newly designed façade and lobby.

Guest rooms are complete with 40-inch TVs, expansive showers (some rooms also feature whirlpool baths), satellite TV, electronic safes and WiFi.

Dining at the Riu Cancun has also been transformed. Completely renovated, the main restaurant, the Miramar, offers a range of different world cuisine.
