My wife and I have been going to the Riu Tequila since 1997. Went for the fifth time this July and had a great time. What makes this resort so unique is that it has the Mexican Style architecture, paintings, furniture and setting. The resort is set in Tropical surrounding, local trees and landscape with plenty of shade (if you... More

Hotel for everyone. If you need to rest and you like silence you will find over there. If you are looking for fun and crazy hours in disco or by the bar with lovely cocktails in your hands you will find it there as well. The best ever night shows. Excellent animation team and bar staff. They will all make... More

The rooms are in need of some tlc now, fresh lick of paint, new linen and re tiling in the bathroom. The food is in abundance and there is a huge selection,... More

The shows are full of enthusiasm and particularly the way they mingle with the audience. If you want... More

The Room The room was stocked daily with lots of bottled water and fresh towels and the drinking glasses were spotlessly cleaned every day. The A/C worked well, and plenty of hot water in the shower even at peak times. The bed was firm but comfortable, however the pillows were rather old and flat, not light and fluffy. The only... More

We have just come back from an 11 night stay at this hotel and definitely didn't want to come home! We booked through Thomson so it was really easy getting from the airport to the hotel - we just followed the exit signs and there were TUI staff telling you which coach to get. The transfer was quick (about an... More
