we flew with thomson on the Dreamliner so I want to start by saying it was a good flight, very smooth even though it was 11 hours. Once outside we were ushered into coaches with Mexican names (ours was taco) and was told 150 people from our flight were going to our hotel. Check in was the easiest thing I've...

Yes the hotel is big, but you can always get a sun bed, you can always get a table in the restaurant, and get served drinks, and the bar staff do serve everyone whatever country you come from. Check in to the hotel was...

We picked the Riu Vallarta and then seen some bad review on tripadvisor, but I was glad I used balanced judgement as our stay was fantastic. You could not ask for a more friendly environment and it was very clean and with a good selection of specialty restaurants. This is a totally all inclusive hotel that refills your fridge with...
