We flew on the Dreamliner for the first time and were impressed with aircraft and its more modern facilities - point to note - pay the...

As it was my first time in Mexico I wasn't sure what to expect with this trip, but it was excellent. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly. The cleaning staff was always working hard and it showed. Our room was comfortable and always perfectly cool which was nice after all of the humidity. We ate at the...

Visited the Pacific side of Mexico for the first time staying in the Riu Palace, one word- fantastic! Hotels great, always something to do round the pool area with the entertainment team and on a night. Always got a sun lounger round the pool and there were plenty available on the beach too, which is good to say we went...

Very nice place for people who like delicious food, a lot of drinks, comfortable rooms and excellent service. But if you like to swim in the ocean ,you'd better find the different place. Waves knock down.

We were looking for a good relaxing hotel with great food and we did well with this choice (thank you Trip Advisor). We went with First Choice who typically had poor flights both ways (despite a nice Dreamliner plan), but really good prices. The hotel itself is almost a Las Vegas style place sitting on the pacific coast of Mexico...

Everyone in the resort was so nice!! The whole staff was helpful and always willing to point you in the right direction. If you stay here, then you have to take the Zumba class with Raul!! He is so passionate about dancing, friendly and really good at simplifying the steps, so I had a ton of fun. Raul was awesome!!!...

The first thing to say is opinions are subjective on here and everybody has their own interpretation. We are a fairly well travelled English family. Who have stayed all over the Caribbean including Cancun in the past few years. However we wanted to try the Pacific side of Mexico and the Riu Palace looked great on paper and not cheap...
