If Golden corral had a resort this would be it. Dirty, dated, unsafe and cheap. The food is cold, cheap, greasy and boring. The rooms have mechanical issues. The bartenders put fingers in drinks. The chef's don't wear masks. I'm lucky me and my wife didn't get covid or food poisoning.

Hotel's Favorite
Clean rooms and property, great view of the beach, friendly staff, taxis always available at the gate. We enjoyed the shows, and also enjoyed the bands on the beach. We loved the atmosphere. Most of the staff we talked to spoke English.

This was my first time to Mexico let alone a Riu and was the best vacation I’ve had! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was extremely clean and the staff was always seen cleaning something. Buffet was good never had an issue,loved the Italian restaurant the best! The beach was nice (except the venders but expected) always could get a chair. The two swim up bars were great.Lobby bar was good when it was opened and they make a mean Spanish coffee! The room was clean and my fridge was always stocked!! I highly recommend this resort and will definitely be back!!

Very friendly staff. Beach vendors are not aggressive like other resorts that I have been to before. Beach and pools were great. Never an issue to get a seat by the pool or a seat on the beach, even for larger groups of people. Food was so-so but the drinks were great. Taxis to town are easy to get, but there are a few shops up the way within walking distance. Overall a great vacation and loved the hospitality.

Great time again at the RIU Emerald Bay. Went with Five Adults and 2 young kids. Everyone enjoyed the resort, shows and food. The beach is great and we like the bands on the beach. If you don’t move back up to the pools and you will hardly hear them. CoVid protocol was enforced but not restrictive. Good deal for the price!! 6th visit for the wife and I.
