Had a fantastic time here in May this year. Location, Staff, beach all 1st class. The room was ok and cleaned every day. The food was excellent and there was always plenty of it. Would definitely recommend this place if you are coming to this part of the world.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay here. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff were amazing, very hard working and attentive. The bar staff were flat out all day making cocktails but were always happy. We never had to wait more that a minute or so at any of the bars to be served,... More

We booked this holiday back in April 2015,so we've waited along time for this holiday to come around. We love the Riu chain of hotels so when we arrived on the 5th of September we hoped we wouldn't be disappointed. We wasn't. From the moment we entered reception we felt a warm welcome from the staff who couldn't do enough... More

I've been to Mexico a few times and this was the first in a "package" type hotel. It was a nice hotel, food, drinks, staff excellent. Unfortunately Riu chain is owned by Tui and the British tourist seems to over run the hotel, which means their bad habits. Sunbeds being saved at the crack of dawn and then not sat... More

Good experience. When we arrived at the room it was not smelling very well however manager was very quick to swap our room. Food is good, however if you are expecting good sushi you won't find it here, well if you are used to Brazil "all you can eat" you will dislike there and any other hotel in Mexico. Others... More
