Great x-mas holiday at the Riu. Very friendly staff and clean hotel. Buffet was one of the best we have been too. Mexican a la carte resturant was not very good, poor service. Stayed with the buffet the rest of the trip. Recommend the upgrade to the honeymoon suite little bigger room with double balconies. All rooms in this hotel have an ocean view which is nice. Read lots of reviews about rough ocean conditions and not being able to swim, however this is not the case. All ages of people were in the ocean while we were there. My wife an I felt very safe travelling by ourselves in Mazatlan, no issues everyone was very pleasent and helpful. Lots of Canadians around town as well. Would absolutly go back. Weather was excellent 30C + and blue sky. Travelled with Sunwing and the staff were also excellent.
