We travelled at the start of January for a week from Canada. Right from immediate contact with the staff of the resort we were impressed by the efficiency and hard work that we witnessed. The food is excellent and if you cannot find something that you like to eat, I would suggest that you would only be happy cooking for...

Super friendly staff and very well managed by competent staff- food was excellent with lots of variety and healthy choices. Lots of activities around the pool and great evening shows. The walk to the beach (500 metres) may not suit everyone but I found the walk pleasurable. The beach is lovely and the city is a 25 minute walk or...

It has been a while since my trip to RIU Tequila but my memories are pretty good! At the time, the beach was being reconstructed but was still enjoyable. The food was average? The steak dinner was my favorite! The rooms were clean and the staff added the foam mattress tops for comfort. We spent most of our time at...

We have just returned from a week's holiday in the Riu ClubHotel Tequila and my family all agree this hotel is fantastic! The staff deserve most of the credit as we felt like royalty being pampered and fussed over without them being 'in your face'. The hotel is spotless and the cleaning staff are amazing and I could not fault...

I read these reviews before leaving, trying to find a negative review, but there is nothing bad to report. The place is beautiful. New Year's Eve was the best ever! The staff are wonderful! There is a variety of food. The vegetarian in our group was very satisfied with her choices at the restaurants. The a-la-carte steak house made her...
