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...

Further to my other reviews this review is from my recent visit on the 30/01/2017 to update and answer some Q & A's. Tequila VS Lupita - Tequila every time - no comparison and I've stayed in both.

Fab hotel, clean and staff friendly, food excellent and plenty of choice. Yes it probably needs a lick of paint and a few less animals in my opinion but this didn't take away the fact that we had a wonderful family holiday with my 5 year old. The only slight disappointment was the kids club well lack of it, the...

We have just returned from Mexico. This was our fourth visit to Riu Tequila, the last time being in 2006. The hotel is absolutely fantastic as it was all those years ago. You cannot fault any part of the hotel or holiday destination. The staff, rooms, food, entertainment are all exceptional, particularly the food. You cannot fail to find something...
