Really important info first...My partner and I both used our credit card at the spa in Riu Mazatlan. He got a call yesterday from his credit card company for fraud alert and I got a call this morning saying that someone has spent close to $5000 in Mazatlan after I left Mexico. During our entire trip to Mexico(Mazatlan), he has only used his credit card at the spa in Riu Emerald Bay and I did too.
We stayed at the following resorts and here is the order from the one we love the most to the least: Dreams Tulum, Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton in Jamaica, Dreams Puerto Vallarta, and Riu Santa Fe
Riu Emerald Bay is between Dreams Puerto Vallarta and Riu Santa Fe.
The resort itself....We upgraded to the JACUZZI SUITE and it was very very worth it. The Jacuzzi suite, the beach, and Mr. Lionzo down the beach were the highlight of our trip. Staff and service was great.
Don't both with the a la carte restaurants. Buffet is your best bet. Pretty good food. Pretty decent variety with lots of fresh fruits. The Christmas and New Year special buffet were great.
The entertainment was just okay.
