Just got back from mexico, all I can say is it's a very long way to go, when there are other riu hotels closer to home, grain canaria for example. The people are so warm and friendly and the hotel is very good,though I do think it is well due for a makeover.if you like rustic Mexican charm then you... More

Having never been to Mexico before I was excited to experience it, however through no fault of the hotel it was no different to any other resort I had been to before. My criticisms (quite strong ones at that) was that you had to get up at 6am if you wanted a sun lounger in the sun. Half of them... More

We went to the ClubHotel Riu Tequila in October 2012 and had a great time with two teenagers. The hotel was a little tired in places, but has since been refurbished so is probably much more modern now. There was plenty for the teens to do during the day - lots of activities, and the entertainment staff worked really hard... More

I have stayed with the Riu chain before but this was the first time in Mexico and sadly it will be my last. Probably in need of referb, and new management. I was only there for the week of which I was glad. Mega shortage of sun loungers by the pool, we were up at 7 - 7 30 but... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Huge rooms and excellent restaurants. The main buffet hall has plenty of options for all and has themed nights. I defy anyone to find someone not just ok but delicious to eat. Has a great healthy breakfast bar too. The oriental restaurant is amazing too. Sushi, noodles and lots of other great dishes. The Mexican... More

Checking in was speedy and efficient. Staff were very warm and welcoming, and the luggage was quickly taken to the room. Each bag had a sticker attached so no lost luggage. The room was very comfortable, spacious for the money, clean and tastefully decorated. One downside was that there were no tea or coffee making facilities, but other than that... More

This resort has some minor problems, but overall it was very nice. I'll start with the good. The rooms are nice-very clean, didn't see any kind of bug, and really quiet. I never heard any noise from the hallways or nearby rooms. The Asian Restaurant was good, and the breakfast buffet had everything you could want. The pool looked pretty,... More

Flew from Manchester on March 26 and others have said, the queues to go through security at Manchester were a nightmare! I sincerely hope they sort that out - and soon! Flew on the Dreamliner which was great and really comfortable. Getting through the airport at Cancun was dreadful - again, queueing and yet more queueing. Thankfully, that was the... More
