Riu Tequila--lots of power outages

Just back, had a great time and will write a review in the next few days. One glitch--sort of major, apparently the Tequila is having electricity problems, power is always coming and going--and not always for short amounts of time... friday night went out around 9:30 came back Saturday am between 7-9. No lights, no a/c, pretty hot and miserable.

Last night went out at around 11 and as of 4 :30 this am when we left, still no lights. SOmetimes they had powerful generators in the commons area, this am those weren't even working--we had to navigate the walkways with luggage in total darkness...

Other than that, fantastic time! Questions?

This was happening when we stayed there in 2005! Also we were without water for TWO DAYS because of some problem. But regardless of this we loved the place!

Hopefully that kind of problem will be rectified when the Tequila does the big reno next summer.

Have others had this problem at Riu Tequila? It was the first I had heard of it.

Some of the workers there said they would be closing (maybe Feb?) for renovations. I really liked this place and would love to go back, but power and water are sort of important to me! :)
