Two families visited from July 26-31. Four adults and four kids in two family rooms. Kids: 17 year old girl, 15 year old boy, 13 year old boy, and a 12 year old boy. Overall we had a good time at this resort. The resort was very crowded the week we were at the resort (as people have mentioned it... More

This hotel is fantastic for families with kids! Went in the second week of August (because prices are low). I would definitely recommend this Riu hotel over the Vallarta or Palace, if you have kids. We visited all three Riu hotels while we were there. The Vallarta is a bit nicer (newer), and the Palace is a LOT nicer... but... More

We stayed here for my husband's 50th birthday in April. The resort is beautiful and the weather was perfect for the entire week. The beach is amazing, there are vendors which can get annoying at times, but a simple, friendly "no, gracias" takes care of them usually. The staff around the pool are fun and hilarious. One day they dressed... More

The resort was very nice and kept well. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was better than most all-inclusive resorts that I've been to. Instead of the typical choices at resorts, there were much more and higher end choices of food each day at the buffets. We did go to the steak and Italian restaurants on consecutive... More

It was our first trip to this side of Mexico. The resort was smaller than we were use to but lots of amenities. Room was very nice and comfortable. Always cleaned well. Nice view. The buffet food was always tasty but did often they run out of things. Service was very slow but that wasn't the fault of the servers.... More

This was a place we visited based on a great deal we got with flight. Always wanted to see the Pacific and the beach here is really nice! Waves to play in all day and nice stretches to walk along. The resort itself left something to be desired. Did not "feel" like Mexico to us. Purples, pinks and silver. But... More

The hotel is located about 15 mins from the airport and 20 mins from shopping. the hotel looks impressive from the outside and the grounds are very well kept, the inside is kept very clean and the staff are all very nice and work hard each day. The food is good, mostly buffet style, even in the specialty restaurants. The... More

Having read warning advisories about drug cartel, dated accommodation and unsafe food, we were a bit paranoid planning the trip. We were pleasantly surprised to find wonderful staff, safe, comfortable facilities and a huge selection of food. The resort was clean, well maintained and within minutes walk of the beach. The all inclusive food, drinks and accommodation was better value... More

I have stopped here twice without disappointment! I love the location of this hotel as it is not as a commercialised area like Cancun. The rooms are spacious with A/C and drinks optics, and your fridge is constantly full of your favourite beverages. It is beach fronted with 5 restaurants, 2 pools and has a gym. The food is excellent... More
