We stayed at riu mazatlan three times in the last year. Grounds are beautiful, beach is great, rooms are modern. And yes the beds are like sleeping on concrete slabs. Many times I thought of going to Walmart and buying a foam topper, that's how bad it was.
Buffet was typical, lots to chose from, but got very boring after three days.
I'd love to tell you this a short walk from town, but it isn't. Even the taxi takes at least 20 minutes.
The beach is huge, no worries about vendors bothering you, unlike other hotels where they are literally at your feet.
If you want seclusion, this is the place. If you like to party, won't be happening here.
