Our room was great, staff (all staff) super friendly. It was our first Riu visit we were a little disappointed, maybe our expectations were too high. There is hard liquor in each room but very little pop and fridge only gets restocked every two days. A bus leaves for the beach every half hour, drop off is at the Riu...

Our honeymoon in Riu Lupita was exceptional apart from having money stolen from our room safe. Can't be sure that we 100% locked the safe but I am 100% sure that 2,100 pesos were stolen from the safe. Reported to management who took details and promised we would gat a copy of room and safe access logs when we got...

First things first: I really enjoyed this place. It's in a tropical place and has a wonderful tropical feel to it. The palm trees and the pool do the job...as does the heat. As in most places of service, the workers make it or break it; in this case I can say that every individual I dealt with was great!...

The club isn't too big, and I appreciate it. The rooms are clean, recently renovated. You want to get a room by the 11 block if you don't want to have too much noise of the bar or the nightclub (which is around 20) Also the view on the lake is nice. There is a show by the bar every...

First time at an all inclusive, and the first impressions are great. Actually exceeded expectations. About the location, no - it's not on the beach, however it's a short bus ride (or bicycle ride) away to the exclusive beach club. The resort is great! Nicely laid out and the facilities are clean and modern. The food was really good! The...

This hotel is a great find for you if want value for money. It was a fully inclusive holiday. I've done a few of these with Club Med in the past which were fantastic, so I didn't set my expectations highly at the Riu Lupita. I'm happy to report that they outdid my expectations hugely. The food was very good...
