On checking into the hotel the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us some sort of rum punch drink, a porter took our cases to our room. A very quick, efficient service. Our room reflected the Mexican decor which is continued throughout the hotel. It was very clean, plenty of drawer and wardrobe space! We had a...

Have just come back from a three week holiday at the Riu Tequila with two other friends. The food and the animation team at the hotel are excellent. Also the hotel dancers are incredible. The shows were brilliant. It is only a five minute walk to a most gorgeous beach and they also supply golf buggy transport to the beach...

Once again we stayed at Riu Tequila. It is still an outstanding resort with great food, excellent staff and great accommodations. Nothing has really changed since our 1st visit in 2005, and we are looking forward to future changes whenever that happens. Visits to the nearby Riu Playacar and Riu Tequila for lunch took place several times - they have...

A long planned family holiday for 11 Nights. Booked through Thomson as an all inclusive.The Riu Tequila is the older one of the Riu group hotels along that road and not directly at the beach. Easy access to the beach however with a dedicated pathway accross the road and the lazy one can have the use of a shuttle. Great...

We stayed at the Riu tequila for 1 week. Our stay was awesome. As soon as we checked in we knew that we were in the right spot. At the front desk Alix, Luis and Samuel were friendly and helpful and most importantly loved to joke and have fun. The cleaning staff were friendly and professional. The entertainment team...Victor, Ricky,Eddy,and...

I spent 2 weeks at the Riu Tequila and just returned. I booked through Expedia.ca and the trip provider was Sunwing flying round trip out of Saskatoon, SK. The 737-800 plane's 179 seats were all occupied - a totally full flight. My flight times were acceptable (although I didn't love the 6:00 a.m. departure time). Sunwing advertise their "Champagne Flight"...

Went to celebrate my 50th birthday for two weeks from 20/01/17, best choice of hotel. Food was good and varied, use of Asian and steak restaurants which were very good, regular bar-b-que during the day and evening meals, all very good. There were 15 of us and the restaurants accommodated the large group with table every time we all ate...
