We stayed from March 25th,2014 til April 1st,2014. I would like to agree with the reviews of this resort. The resort is super clean, the food is great,the service is excellent. I stayed at Riu resorts before and this resort didn't disappoint. I would like to thank the staff for making our stay wonderful. We took couple of trips. Trip... More

Paco and David in the lobby bar were the best bar tenders I have ever seen. I am not sure why anyone would be hungry at this... More

For the most part I had a good vacation. Food was good but a bit salty. I do have to say that the staff was excellent! Friendly, catered to your needs and helpful. Elevators are not the greatest but was not a huge deal. On the negative side, I found that the hotel is a bit tucked away so there... More

1st let me explain that I had reservations about this trip after listening to or reading about the location of the hotel and the local area -- I am glad that I made the decision to visit. We travelled on the first of April till the 15th. The weather was perfect, the accomodations were first class and before we go... More

My husband and I just returned from the Riu (April 8-15th) and we were a little disappointed. We read the reviews and thought that this would be the best all-inclusive resort ever and this was not the case. If we had spent over 1100 a person we would have been really upset but because we got a really good price... More

The beach is nothing short of amazing. I am not a beach bum by any means but this beach has changed my mind. Water is wonderful. Waves are great! Hotel is super clean and the only compliant would be the elevators. They are slow and they shake like crazy. Food was good. All in all a good stay and good... More

We returned on Friday April 11th from a 1 week stay. We travelled with a group of friends so there were 9 of us altogether with 2 children around 10 yrs old. This was absolutely the most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. I was slightly hesitant before we left due to some of the reviews I had read so I... More

Mazatlan has to have one of the world’s best beaches – long, clean, and picturesque. The RIU is certainly worth 4 stars – an unbelievably clean property (rarely did I visit the Men's washroom when there wasn't a young lady in there scrubbing away - a bit unnerving at first but you get used to it). The service is bend-over-backwards... More

Was at Riu Emerald Bay from April 1st to 8th. The grounds are kept perfectly clean. Always someone sweeping, wiping, etc. Even during lunch, the little lady is sweeping under your table.! The buffet was good. Always something to choose from. Omelet stations, carving stations, fruit salad. Must mention Enrique the waiter for breakfast and lunch. He is amazing and... More
