    Money stolen

    We visited in Feb. On our last night, we had money stolen from the pool chairs when it was less busy (at around 6pm). Hotel security took our belongings to the front desk while we went for an evening swim (mind you the pool was open) and about 200$ had been stolen from inside our bags. Unfortunately the front desk staff initially accused us of lying, which was very frustrating…Ultimately we had to talk to the manager but the money was never found. Aside from that our experience was pleasant, but this experience certainly put a damper on things. Lesson learned! Do not lose sight of your belongings for even a few moments!

    Just what we needed!

    Right from the start, everything was great. The staff there? Absolute legends. They made sure we felt more like friends than guests. Honestly, we spent our days just soaking in the good vibes and exploring around. Can't wait to head back. It's like we found our go-to spot for when I need to hit the reset button. 100% recommend!

    30th Birthday Surprise!

    This was a beautiful experience. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. They made sure I enjoyed my birthday. Everything was convenient to book excursions! When my husband and I had an issue with our room, Andrea at Reception was super understanding, supportive and was able to get us a room with the better ocean view. She made us feel valued as we were asking for what we needed. I am so happy that my husband booked this trip for my 30th birthday with friends because the staff made me special especially when they decorated the room for my special day! I did not want to leave and experience the hospitality of this staff my first time in Mexico was a beautiful blessing and pray that I have many many many more opportunities to experience this again!

    Could have been a better stay

    We arrived on a monday and le tthem know that the tv remote was not working and the tv was supposed to be 40" and the one in the room was maybe 20". We mentioned 3 different days and they said there was a "report" in .We never got the remote fixed or larger tv brought tht they advertiseThe tv's are not infront of the bed they are in the other room infront of the couch so for people with bad eye sight it was an issue. The staff is all very nice and the beach is beautiful . If it was not for them ignoring the tv issue it would have been a great stay. This was our first time at an Riu so it was a little dissapointing as we travel a lot and usually most places get right on an issue. If it was the next day or even 2 days that would have been fine but a whole week is a bit
