Perfect long-weekend!
carlosag277, Nuevo Laredo, Mexico

I arrived before check-in time so I had to wait a couple of hours before get access to the amenities sooner than the room. The room was very comfortable, wished they refill the fridge sooner. Had a couple of issues but the personnel took care of them very promptly. This gained my trust on the resort. The hotel shut down the elevators due to storm, this speaks for itself about its security protocols. The amenities are great! Big swimming pools, great beach area too.

Awesome place

First of all, the place is awesome, very friendly people at the front desk, and clerks are friendly too, they really help and assist you. Some reviews said there is no AC, and its true no AC T the lobby and that's cause it's an open place, yes it's warm, but at the lobby there's no need for AC, the AC at the rooms works perfectly fine. I had a duplex room, and it's really cool, first floor, not too noisy, so it was good. Pools, obviously crowded near the weekend, good pool activities, the bar at the pool its more than ok, the kids activities are fine. Late night show, my respect for the crew, first level show, so professional the guys and gals performing. Sports bar: good place to be if you have nothing to do after 12am, kind of noisy, but it's ok. Btw, they always have food and beverages available. Beach: the most beatific sunset i have ever seeing, it's a must, take 30 minutes of your trip to see the sunset. Restaurants, good food, maybe my only suggestion would be to have more variety on the menu from one day to other. Excelente service from the waiters and waitress. Obviously I will come back to Mazatlan and Riu. Great experience!!

Awful experience

No free internet in the rooms and only 2 devices in social areas Poor food quality No AC in restaurants or lobby or Elevators Elevators take too long so you have to use the stairs They steel the hotel towels at the pool areas. People with regular clothes in the pool and children without them. Loud tambora music all afternoon Sports bar is like a kindergarten at night. Awful experience.

All Right For A Good Deal

this is a little late, we were here in May for a week and if it wasn't for using some airline points to travel I don't know if we would go back paying full price. The buffet food was what all Riu's are like enough options available that we don't leave feeling hungry, and we like to find a server and stick with them all week so that they get to know you and what you like. I can't remember his name but we had the best guy there for breakfast and dinner he was directly to the right as you walk in the dinning room and after the first night he knew when to expect us and sometimes had our drinks ready (wine spritzer) as soon as we sat down. There is some beverage service around the pool area but very limited. they have portable bars that they move around the pools that service the pool area but you are better going to them then waiting for them to come to you. There is no beverage service in the theater area but there is a bartender that works at the outside theater that speaks very good English and looked after us very well and was very willing to have a conversation with us, he to had our drinks ready as he saw us walking up. There is a nice restaurant up the beach that we tried out for lunch one day it was very good but kind of pricy when you break down the exchange but was good for a change from the resort food. The beach is okay but cant really enjoy the water very much as the waves can be very big a times and we saw quite a few times where the life guard had to run in to get people back in because they got swept out by the waves. The rooms higher up have great views with an awesome sun set every night, they all face the water and have no complaints about the rooms or cleanliness. Overall it was relaxing which is what we go away for, we don't do any excursions so I can't comment on any but would only return if I found a good deal.

Fun and Restful.

Resort is clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Whenever we needed anything they responded in a timely fashion. I highly recommend getting out of the resort and going up the hill for coffee at Looney Spoons. The coffee and the staff are exceptional. They speak english too. We took a palmania into the city centre and walked the sea wall it is just gorgeous. The bakeries, churches and shopping are worth the seven dollar cab ride down town. The only thing I was craving was good salsa and tortilla chips which the resort could improve on. It is Mexico! Great resort and a great price!
