Reservations No Longer Required For Restaurants At Riu
There was a round of applause from travel professionals gathered for a Sunwing/Riu holiday gathering in Toronto yesterday, when Riu’s Hugo Aguilera announced that guests of its Mexico and Caribbean resorts will no longer have to get up early in the morning to make a la carte restaurant reservations.
“We have worked hard to adapt our systems and are very happy to announce that restaurant reservations are no longer required at any of our Mexico and Caribbean properties,” said Aguilera, Riu’s Director of Business Development & Partner Marketing, USA & Canada.
In the past, Riu guests often had to queue up early in the morning to make a la carte reservations. With other AI groups figuring out ways to offer restriction-free dining, there was pressure on Riu to follow suit.
Judging from the response, the move will be a popular one with both Riu-selling agents and guests.
