Already looking at options for next year as it's my turn to pick. Right now the Lupita looks like a possibility as does the Jalisco on the Pacific coast - both based on early pricing.

Just wonder as I thought I had read it somewhere... Are Stephanie and Gerry still the bosses at the Lupita or have one of them moved? For some reason I thought I saw something about one of them moving to another Riu.

Just curious as they were both very friendly and helpful when we were there last time.

Thanks.

Hi Bryan, Stephanie is still the Lupita director, with Joseba the sub. Gerry is one of the subs at the Tequila, with Natalia as the director.

When we stayed at the Playacar in November we went to the Lupita to see the changes. The new restaurant is quite an improvement over the old. They also have a steakhouse, for dinner, at their beach club. We ate there one night and the views to Cozumel can't be beat.

Do you think the NO sharing for Lupita guests have affected it at all.

Thanks Keith!

Trish, I know the change in sharing policy turned one of my group off. Hope I can convince them to go again.

I priced out the Lupita and the price was not that much lower than the the Tequila and Playacar. mmm.
I sometimes think I would like to stay there and then I remember how remote it seems. I am spoiled by being in Playa and walking between resorts is not too bad. Now if I was younger that would be another story.

I also priced it out for May/June a couple of weeks ago & for me the Tequila was coming in way cheaper, using my points, than the Lupita. I prefer the other Rius over the Lupita because of the exchange privileges, but I would still go back to the Lupita if the price was right (it usually prices out pretty good if you want to go as a single).

For me the fact that the Lupita is far away form the sister resorts makes me think twice about going there.... but that is just me...

For us the Lupita is about the only affordable Playa Riu and it is one of the few that haven't been converted to the open concept bathroom. Why they do that us beyond me. Even my travel agent can't sell that format to families.

I agree with you, my girls are old enough that they charge adult rate for them so we are getting 2 rooms.
