Good for the money I guess

The food was close by the same every day on the buffet. The stake house is horrible with only on type of cut on the manu.

Not a awesome stay

Staff was awesome, for the most part. Rooms were not up to par, our room flooded. They had no laundry service on Sunday, that could dry our clothes. So we came back to the states with wet and smelly clothes. The location of the hotel was nice, the jolly Rogers pirate ship, and señor frogs were the highlights of the trip.

Wet Vacation

Room face parking lot was hanged next day to nice ocean view. Very nice except for severe thunderstorm which swept the wind driven rains under our balcony door. Spent night drying floors. not happy. This was my 2nd stay here 1st was great. Too much time in hotel lobby searching for wifi (Paid wifi) because all outdoor activities cancelled due to bad weather.

Sister's wedding

Spent three nights there just to attend my sister's wedding. Service was great and so was the food. The night life at this hotel wasn't so great and late night snacking options were very limited.

Great Honeymoon

They were great at check in and the whole stay. We did get a room that was already taken but they apologized and went above and beyond to make up for it. We got a temporary one for 1 night and then for the rest of our stay we got upgraded to a JR suite with a ocean view balcony. They also came every day and would make cute figures with the towels and would put petal roses on the bed. The pool and activities were pretty good and the beach part was pretty big and clean. Definitely would recommend.

Just OK

It was a bit dirty and the food was ok. My husband and I were not impressed. We have stayed at other Riu's and expected the same type of atmosphere but did not have that experience here.

First all inclusive/amazing

This was my first time in an all inclusive hotel, it was simply amazing, couldn't ask for more. My fiancé and I couldn't think of a single complaint about the hotel, so we joked around one night at the steakhouse saying "wow this table is rocky, this is an awful experience" and the waiter eventually came over without hearing us and stuck papers underneath one leg on the table to stop it from wobbling. We were absolutely shocked that even our joke to ourselves was notices by the staff and corrected!!! The staff is sooooo friendly and attentive! Mexico and this hotel are amazing, I recomend it to everyone! Liquor is a little watered down but it's like that at all the resorts.
