Our Family of 3 stayed here the last week of March 2012 for our Spring Break. This was our first visit to Mazatlan. The Riu is a really nice place and is far away from the golden zone which is a reason why we booked this resort. The food was overall good...not great.. They were lacking in their seafood category as we only had 1 night in which shrimp was offered. We did not eat at any of the specialty places so it was just buffet.
The water in the pool was too cold for me to get in, but my son and wife enjoyed it. The ocean was the same way at that time fo year.
I would not hesitate to go back to this resort due to the price mainly....we spent about $100US per night for our week stay for 3. That is really inexpensive and allows more money to do other things.
We were apprehensive about going to Mexico with the warnings and all, but once we arrived, there was really no worry on our minds.
The nightly shows were pretty good and my son had a great time at the kids club.
Overall, good experience for us and good value for what we paid.
