My husband and I just returned from the Riu, Dec 13 - 20. We had a great time. We traveled with FunJet and it was the best. The hotel is very nice, the rooms are clean, yes the bed is very hard and the shower does drain slowly. We did not have to stand in long lines at the buffet... More

We went down with 17 family members and had the best time of our lives. Included in our party were grandparent, sisters, brothers, and 8 children aged 7 to 13. If you cannot have a good time at this resort you should question whether or not you would have fun anywhere. What caught us by suprize was how clean everything... More

We stayed at the RIU from December 13th to the 20th, since this is our fifth all inclusive and our trip prior to this in June was to the marvelous Moon Palace this resort was just okay if this is your first all-inclusive you'll love it the reason I'm just rating it as okay is because at the other resorts...

We just returned from the Riu Jalisco (12/8-12/16) and we had the best time! The Resort was fantastic, great friendly service and sparkling clean surroundings. You cannot go wrong. I too was a little worried after reading some of the reviews, all I can say is that most were written by spoiled Americans. Some even went as far as complaining... More

I just returned from 1 week at Riu Jalisco (12/7-12/14). I actually felt guilty at times that the value (cost vs. quality) was so tremendous that I felt as though I was stealing. The hotel was as nice as any in PV, and on the same level as my last trip to the Ritz-Carlton in Jamaica. The breakfasts were excellent,... More

The Riu is an exceptional bargain -- a truly beautiful, spotless and efficiently run resort within anyone's budget. The food and drink were better than expected (yes, it's essentially the same buffet put out each night, but there's so much to choose from that you can have an entirely different meal each time you go), and the staff was unfailingly...

I went to the Rui from November 30th until December 6th 2003. It is or was in the midst of a really bad time in my life. I had gotten laid off, a neighbor died and some family things. I was quite hestitant to go as I am not a good flyer and because things were tough. The minute I... More

First of all, like I say ignore the negative posts and book up for this wonderful hotel. It is beautiful, clean and the staff work incredibly hard for you. The food is lovely and plentiful, and I never had any drinks watered down or heard any stories of this. Maybe they put a little soda in the tequila shots, but... More

My boyfriend and I just got back last night after a week at the Riu. He is 41 and I am 32 and we had an amazing time! We planned our trip through SunTrips, and Andres, one of the SunTrips reps that was at the hotel every day, was awesome, helped us plan little excursions and find great restaurants. The... More

Aside from being treated horribly by the airline (which I will not go into), and being completely evaded by the vacation company rep, we had an absolutely wonderful time at the Riu. We visited the week of Thanksgiving, and the resort was immaculately kept, and more wonderful than we could have even imagined. Having read the reviews here, we were... More
