Good holiday resort
Reviewed 6 hours ago

Overall hotel is in good shape, food above average, love the fact one could access the a la carte restaurants without much problem, although one needed to reserve in the morning. The general buffets and a la cartes were very good. About 30% were Canadian and 70 % Mexican nations end of November. Pools very crystal clear, lovely beach, surf was a bit rough during the week and one had to be physically strong to endure the waves. Night entertainment was pretty good overall.

Reception, bar and restaurant staff were super cleaning staff and room staff tops, everyone at hotel were pleasant, fast efficient and very hard working.
Can not say enough. Local bus in front of hotel can take you to city centre or marina for 11 pesos 90 cents.

Hotel also has a great free excercise room and spa in front, try them not many do.

WIFI was free and worked.

All Inclusive Stay in Mazatlan
Reviewed 11 hours ago

We stayed here as a package vacation with Sunwing Airlines. The hotel did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Although the facility is much larger than the one we usually stay at, for its size, the RIU was very clean, well attended to and the food was fabulous. Two of the themed restaurants, the Italian and th Mexican restaurant were not open and the wifi was a bit spotty at times; however, overall this is a great choice. Although a bit distant from the old town area, buses run frequently just outside the door and cost only 11 pesos ( about .80c ) for a one way fare. Definitely would return to this resort.

Mazatlan in Nov

Always enjoy our stay at the Riu Hotels. Food is excellent and there is always a good variety. Rooms are all oceanview so you don't have to upgrade. Only complaint we have is the Mexican band on the beach drives you crazy. They play everyday from 3pm to 7pm and it is very loud and annoying. Can't even get away from it if you go to your room. All the people we talk to find it very annoying too.Apparently there is nothing the hotel can do about it as they are not on hotel property. Because of this I do not think we would return here again. It was the same last year.

This was an amazing place to go to but not in the locals summer months

Even though this is a nice hotel with lots of pools, nice pool bar, beach and hotel is close to pubs, restaurants, stores that you can enjoy a nice walk to, issue was that is was overly busy with the locals and lots of children due to it being their summer time. I have no issues with the locals taking vacation but I won't go back during their break time as its a whole different world when I also have spent money and time to relax and enjoy my vacation. When I went in April, it was fabulous, when I went in November it was not so fabulous. The pool bar was really disgusting and cool tub that run off of it was terribly bubbly showing lots of dirt floating around. Didn't stop it from being packed at this time but it sure wasn't for me or a lot of other people visiting.
Line ups were a lot more longer of course and when you know the language it truly helps get the food quicker on plates.
I met a lot of nice people that we hung with every day and nite which truly makes a trip fun. The pool staff were fabulous and one of them actually remembered us from a few years back and was very attentive to our needs once again. They keep the hotel clean inside and surrounding areas, just all the pools I find need to have a lot more attention when its at is max capacity - which is was every day.
I have been there twice and now I know which months to go though I've been twice I most likely go back as I like to visit other hotels and locations. I understand now as well why I got it for such a low cost in November, and here I thought I just lucked out.
