This was our second time at the Tequila and it is still a great resort. It is showing some wear and tear but on the day we were leaving they were replacing all of the sun loungers around the pool. I agree with others who have said they much prefer the Tequila's decor over the more modern changes at the...

Where to start! We stayed here in February 2017 for 2 weeks with Thompson. Check-in was efficient and easy, and a drink on arrival was definitely welcome after the flight and transfer! Our bags were taken and we found our way to our room. The room itself was spacious with a balcony - we had requested a first floor room...

Had another really great holiday at the Riu Tequila. The food and drinks were very good our favourite was the steak restaurant, which you no longer have to book. The Riu Tequila is now looking a bit tired and could do with a refurbishment, but still holiday choice as you use the facility at two of there other hotel that...

Third time visiting Mexico. Previously stayed at moon place and decided to try this hotel. It's in need of a little update, the rooms smell of damp and some of the grounds need some tlc, however there is a strong Caribbean feel to this hotel which is lovely. The staff however can be very rude... if you dare take a...

Yet again another fantastic holiday in the Riu Tequila. Still a great hotel with fantastic service from some of the best staff I have ever met, nothing is too much trouble. Food is still good with a wide selection to choose from, never needed to try the speciality restaurants. Reviewed this cracking hotel the first time we went three years...

I never wanted to leave this place, as soon as I got home I had already wanted to go back! Plan to go back for sure someday! Resort was amazing and beautiful, staff was always kind and always made sure we were satisfied. Food was amazing, and of coarse the entertainment staff was the highlight of the trip for me....

A 664 room hotel but you would not think it as the accommodation is in blocks of no more than ground and 1st floor set around the grounds which are landscaped with trees and lawns so you can not see the full size of the resort nicely done, with pool bar and restaurant in the middle of the resort and...

First thing I have to say is make sure your slider is locked! Unfortunately my phone was stolen the first day I was there. At first I doubted myself, I was sure that I left my phone on the nightstand, ironically because I didn't want to lose it. When we returned from dinner and drinks and I couldn't find it...
