Still a great hotel
mningham, Blackburn, United Kingdom

This was our second visit and it was every bit as good as the first. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and all the staff are very efficient and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. We ate in the Peninsular restaurant and the food was plentiful, varied and excellent quality. Our waiter Gama, was exceptional, and the tables were always beautifully laid. The only downside was some of the guests came down to dinner in what can only be described as beachwear. It just seemed very disrespectful, when the waiters were better dressed than the diners!! The shows were good and although we did not take part in the daytime activities they were fun to watch. All in all a great holiday.

Another wonderful visit!

Our 7th visit and always wonderful. Tomas, Bruno, and Alan always greets us with a smile. The best waiters ever. Loved our stay. Blanca at registration is always gracious and sweet. Make sure to leave a tip. A dollar means so much to the staff and the ladies that clean your room. You will love this place!! Very clean, organized and the staff couldn't be better than this. We will be back!!

Another Wonderful Vacation!

This was our 2nd time at this resort and we enjoy it! The food is great! Entertainment is amazing! The staff is super nice and friendly! Couple things we didn't care for this time was: The resort isn't just adults only. The pool isn't really set up kids, so kids were splashing around the water chair loungers because the water was shallow in those areas... I wanted to relax in a water chair lounger but that didn't happen. Also, at check in time they really didn't explain much how the restaurants work, talked about the resort or explained how you have access to the other 2 Riu's. The restaurants no longer take reservations, it is first come first serve. We liked having reservations, so you knew when you were going to eat. We didn't have a problem getting into the restaurants, we just made sure we got there when they opened so we could get seated or get a "buzzer" to come back. We knew we had access to the other 2 resorts, but other checking in at the same time as us they didn't know that. We are debating if we will go back or not... it is a very nice resort, but prefer a adults only resort.

Beautiful but beware

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful resort the staff amazingly friendly the grounds impeccably kept. However two of us in our group ended up deathly ill. At first I associated it with going into town and having something to drink there however on Monday when another person in our party got sick and hadn't any food or drink other than from the resort well that leaves me inclined to believe that it came from the resort. Also there were several other people we had talked to that we're having the same issues. I've been home for 5 days now and still not quite feeling myself.

Staff is great, entertainment is good, pool security is too much.

The hotel here was good but caters to an older crowd (but they still can party). We went for a bachelor party and still had a great time but the pool security was a little much. We were drinking, having a good time and making some noise (by the pool bar) with no one complaints, but the pool security guard Simon (I think) kept threatening us with "Mexico has rules, mexican jail is no fun". Everyone seemed annoyed with his babysitting antics. But on the bright side, the bartenders are great, the staff are all very welcoming and helpful and the buffet is above average. Also, booking at this hotel gives you access to the other 2 Riu's (Jalisco is the better one in my opinion).
