We stayed here for a week, and for a very reasonable price for two people. The staff was always willing to help and all were very polite. I appreciated that the resort had shows every day during pool time, and every night. It made the resort more fun! The food was excellent as well! The maids were always cleaning and... More

If you have the option, book transportation to and from the airport! Get your luggage and walk straight out the door of the airport. If you don't, you will get sales pitches from every new resort in Mexico. Once I arrived, the receptionists were ready. They upgraded my room to a full ocean view in the front. The room was... More

My (new) hubby and I booked this last-minute for our honeymoon, and based our decision on the price (great deal) and reviews. Pros: our room was very nice - spacious and clean, with a mini-bar and alcohol dispensers, all included. We had a partial ocean view and faced empty land, which was fine. The staff were great, and although our... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the riu palace Pacifico from July 13- July 18. We made sure to call in and confirm our reservation a few days before our arrival, just to make sure. Upon arriving the gust of heat you feel stepping out of the plane is insane!! We also made sure to have transportation ready there to... More

First and foremost, my family and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday at this hotel and would highly recommend it. As the title suggests, it is a 5 holiday grade hotel but not 5 star! It does its best to live up to its rating though and is probably the most meticulously cleaned holiday hotel I have stayed... More

Arrived and greeted by staff with a glass of champagne, very cool. Booked a Jr. Suite Partial Ocean view, instead was given a regular room on the 8th floor and faced an empty lot, very disappointed. Went downstairs to ask why I was not given what I booked and the guy at the reception said I was assigned what I... More

We have recently returned from a week at the Rui Pacifico Palace hotel. After an initial 4 hour delay due to plane problems with Tomsons new “Dreamliner”, we finally arrived by taxi at the hotel shortly after landing. We were greeted at reception by the staff with a glass of champagne, very friendly. The hotel was faultless really, great service... More

We just got back from a week stay at the Riu, we had a fabulous time. We weren't huge on the food. Actually preferred the buffet to restaurants, we didn't really enjoy any of the restaurants. We ended up going downtown to eat a few nights. Really enjoyed the restaurant called La Dolce Vita downtown. Another tip was that we... More
