Very nice affordable trip

Frst, we LOVE Riu's and that's only where we go. RIU TEQUILA is 2 stories, less people and we LOVED IT!! It was a nice change from the big level Rius. We will go back here. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and didn't bother us at all that we didn't see the water since we live on East coast and see the ocean. The golf cart brings you there with ease and the beach is gorgeous!!! You also can spend the day at RIU Yucatan who has a hopping pool with activities. Then when you want more laid back you go back to Tequila. We are 60 years old - so all these options were fabulous!! (very young 60) The people are so nice and friendly also. Perfect trip

Riu in October

Great value vacation. This resort is one of the better all inclusive's we have been to for the price. The buffet dinner is better than specialty places, choices and tastes are outstanding. Drinks are pretty good, bars were spaced out but service was fast and they had a cart that went around the pools. They had shows every night some were good...some average. because of venue it was hard to understand. Rooms were very nice and very nicely stocked !!!! Would go back...about 45 minutes from airport. Bought roundtrip transportation package..they picked us up 4.5 hrs before flight. Long time to sit in airport. Took 30 min to check in and clear customs. Next time we are taking a Taxi.

Mostly good

My wife and I went here for our 2nd anniversary trip, which was our 3rd trip to Mexico. This resort is not beachfront, but that wasn't an issue for us. The beach is about a 10min walk away from the front of the resort. I enjoyed getting a bit of walking in, and the whole walk was well labeled and shaded. They also run shuttles every 10 minutes if you don't like to walk. The beach was great! Soft sand with lots of shaded chairs. The water was quite clear and not rocky at all. There was lots of seaweed close to the shore, but they did their best to clean it out throughout the day. You can also use the sister resort pool which are right next to the beach. This meant that there were plenty of places to get food/drinks near the beach. All of the pools were somewhat small and the water was way too warm. I did like that each pool had a different atmosphere. Some had lots of kids, some only adults, some more relaxing, and some more of a party scene. The room was good. Nothing great, but also nothing bad. I really enjoyed the food. The steakhouse had very large ribeyes, sirloins, etc. The buffets were pretty good (still a buffet), but I found something I liked at each one. Not my favorite resort, but based on the low price I got probably the best resort/dollar.

Not worth it

My gf an I went to fui tequila to celebrate her 25th birthday. Once we got to the hotel, the front desk administration had an attitude to attend us. He also charged us a $3.00 fee and did not explain why. Once we got to our hotel room, it was infested with mosquitos. We were bitten all over our legs, and arms. Even in the shower we could not relax, because it was flying and biting us. The restaurant bamboo was terribly disgusting. There were mosquitoes flying around the food, and it taste old. The entertainment was terrible. The lady sounded like she got denied by other hotels, and this was her last resort. I was also overcharged for excursions and the people were an hour late to pick us up to go to the airport ... NEVER AGAIN
