1st time in Mexico and couldn't have picked a better hotel , upgraded room which was worth every penny. It was a proper all inclusive no added extras, named spirits without paying extra , food available 24 hours a day and bar open 24 hours a day. Decent entertainment and excellent food. Staff are all friendly and helpful. Room was cleaned twice a day and unexpectedly there was optics in the room with 4 different spirits and fridge was filled with water , coke ,sprite and lager and was refilled everyday and spirits replaced when empty. Treated myself to a massage which was excellent. Would highly recommend and will be returning

Having a great time until.....

The check in was over within seconds with a complimentary cocktail to cool us off after a very long flight...I would definitely recommend the premium seats...the airport experience was horrendous but that's the airport not the hotel....lobby area was very impressive as were the grounds. We couldn't fault the food...so much choice...tried the krystal and mexican restaurant...couldn't get in the steak house...it was booked out for 3 private receptions whilst we were there and if you didn't start queuing at 6pm (for both sittings) you had no chance...pool area was nice could do with an update and a crack down on certain rules eg no smoking in the pool bar and no putting towels on beds before the crack of dawn....could get a bit raucous at times with certain people thinking it was spring break for the over 50's....we used the beach...it's not like the Caribbean but we didn't expect it to be as we had done our homework beforehand and actually looked into where we were going! Our room was on the 8th floor it was spacious and a little dated but it had everything we needed....the hairdryer was great....I had informed the hotel that it was our 20th wedding anniversary, however there was no recognition of this...I would have expected a 5 star hotel to acknowledge these type of things with a little something in your room when you arrive....this was disappointing....the main issue we have is the fact that we had money taken out of our safe...2000 pesos...and from other reports we weren't just the only ones...this was reported but as per usual an investigation was under way with nothing to report by the time we went home...there was no offer of compensation even though it was taken out of the safe...this is the first this has happened to us and was very unsettling...I would probably recommend this side of Mexico to people but maybe a different hotel.

Good stay but not amazing

Stayed in Jacuzzi Suite - Room was perfect size for our 10 night stay - it's huge and it great views and everything we required. Dated but really it didn't make much difference to stay. Pool was good with plenty of chairs to soak up the sun. Swim up bar was average. Little smelly due to some grotty people thinking it's ok to release themselves instead of taking a short walk to the rest room. Daily games & activities by the RIU crew were enjoyed. Every night there was some sort of show in the main arena. Shows from interactive games with the crowd to a Saturday night show from a Michael Jackson Impersonator. It's what you make of the nights but wife and I had fun! The only real disappointment was some of the food. Krystal restaurant and the Japanese restaurant (which was really more a mix of Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese and Thai) were both good whilst breakfast in the buffet was well above average (thanks to a beautiful lady whom made my eggs to order perfectly) but that's where it stopped. Guacamole restaurant was average BUT make sure you asked for a flaming Mexican coffee at the end (pretty cool how it was made) & the steak house Toscana was poor. Buffet for dinner was terrible Some handy tips ...... - Do yourself a favour and get a massage down at the beach. It's a 25 minute walk once you turn right from the hotel and it's the 2nd white tent/marquee. Asked for Sandra as that's whom I got a brilliant and soothing massage every 2nd day from. Sooooo good! The best I've had. It was $20 USD or 300 pesos. - After your massage, walked a further 100 metres, head up some stairs and head to Bucceras. Grab yourself a chilled Cervesa (Corona) for $1 from the small mart/deli shop and check out some of the old and new skool eateries - If heading to Puerto Vallarta on the Malacon, best to avoid Tuesday & Thursdays as this is when the ships come in with tourists. Vendors see this as an opportunity to inflate prices. Other than that, we found it average. Pretty much mwah zzzz. - Don't bother with two other Rui's. Palace Pacifico leaves for them dead. There like a poor mans version of the real deal. But each to their own I guess

great first time to mexico

My family had such a relaxing stay at the Riu over Thanksgiving. The hotel is just beautiful and meticulously maintained. The staff are cleaning and pruning the hotel and landscape around the clock. The pool and beach are very relaxing. We spent the entire week by the pool and beach and didn't want to move. The food is very good. I actually liked the buffet food more than the specialty restaurants. There's enough variety at the buffet to eat something different each day. Especially with the Mexican and seafood dishes, and you'll be very happy. The real standout is the staff. Each person is so friendly and helpful, especially the staff at the buffet restaurant. They made me and my family feel so welcome and well cared for. Tipping is not required or expected. But if you're able, it's great to tip a few dollars when you get great service. The staff certainly appreciate it, and it's a small way to thank them for taking care of you.
