Stayed for the week of Feb 17-24 and I would definitely go back again. Food was great at all locations we tried: the buffet, the steakhouse and the asian food restaurant. Didn't venture down to the Mexican restaurant because we found enough variety at the main buffet to keep us coming back. We stayed at Riu Lupita the previous year...

We stayed for a week at this hotel and loved very minute. The walk to the beach was just 5/10 minutes under a tree lined walkway and plenty of sunbeds so no reserving needed!!!! 4 Riu hotels in very close proximity but we felt ours showed true Mexico rather a clinical hotel you could find anywhere. Staff were really friendly...

We had a male cleaner who was excellent, spotless in fact. The food was out of this world, Lobster, Prawns, Smoked Salmon, chinese food, japanese...

We have been going to the Tequila since it very first opened, usually 2-3 times a year. It has changed over the years, but not that much. It would be tragic if the hotel was destroyed the way the Yucatan and the Playacar have been and turned into pink gin palaces, all their character ripped out. Please, do not destroy...

We have just arrived back from a 11 night stay - 2 adults and a 9 year old and 11 year old. We have had a lovely holiday - the hotel is in a great location with well thought out landscaping making you feel cocooned within a palm grove. We had a nose around some of the other Riu hotels...

If you want a traditional themed Mexican hotel on your visit to Mexico then this would be the perfect place for you to stay! I stayed in August 2016 and I couldn't have had a better experience. All of the staff were excellent and were always happy to help you out (the entertainment team were also fabulous and if asked...

This was our second visit to o the Tequila. We never return to hotels as there are always more things to see else where. But this we thought was worth a second visit. Everything was great food, entertainment, cocktails. The only problem and it was a problem. We're the Soti. There where hundreds of them. They where quite cute first...

It was our second time at this wonderful hotel. We spent 10 great days. The rooms are large, the food is excellent and the staff is very smily and ready to please. Every day, there was a surprise ( to celebrate Valentine day, to teach the customers how to do "towel art", to test local food...) On top of that...

Thank-you to the staff of the Riu Tequila for our best holiday to date. We were a little apprehensive reading mixed reviews about this hotel but this soon subsided on arrival. The location, rooms and grounds are amazing and I personally preferred this hotel to the Grand Serenis which we visited last year. This lovely hotel holds its own amongst...
