We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Riu Vallarta. I was a little sceptical having read a few reviews, but I have never yet stayed in a bad Riu hotel and this again proved to be the case. We had a fab room overlooking the pool with a lovely sunset view. We found the bed huge and very...

This is a great vacation spot. Staff are very friendly, courteous and helpful. Restaurants are all excellent with many food offerings to suit any taste. Hotel, grounds and rooms are very clean and well maintained. Our only wish would be for more comfortable beds(they are very hard) and larger softer pillows. We will be back here.

Ok it's a cheap holiday booked through Thomsons. But if you want to sit next to your partner it's £120 extra! And they don't tell you it's about £65 tax in cash each to leave Mexico collected at airport. And it's a long flight 12hrs. You will be bombarded at the Airport by timeshare reps, so go straight through and...
