    Style over substance

    My family and I are currently at the hotel, 2 adults and 2 kids. The hotel is stylish but that is where it ends for us. We've stayed in many hotels and this was the worst for us. It's a good-looking hotel but did not come off as family-friendly- very sterile. People weren't warm, accommodating, or thoughtful. We asked for washcloths and we were advised those were considered an " amenity". What does that even mean? We had food that we wanted to reheat and we were told there were no microwaves on the premises, please bear in mind they have a restaurant and offer room service. The young lady at the front desk actually told us to visit the Oxxo to reheat our food (this is a 15-minute walk from the hotel, based on Google). The elevator was a pain in the butt, you had to insert the card multiple times to get it to work. Then all occupants had to insert their respective cards which usually reopened the elevator doors. Unless you like your pool crowded, it's a no-no. They open up the pool to outsiders for a pool party. This hotel is definitely about money and not about nurturing relationships with its guests. Both my husband and I are RIU class members and this is our first RIU plaza visit and unfortunately our worst RIU experience. Great if I was single and wanted to party as that's a big focus here but for a family- nope not at all. Overrated if you ask me, highly disappointing.

    Riu stay

    The beds are too small, should consider using queen size beds and not full size. 2 people in a full size is not best idea. We didn't have enough space to turn over without having to bother my spouse. Other than that Resort is amazing!

    Very nice and friendly hotel

    It was the best hotel among we stayed in this travel to Mexico. We could make early check-in. The view is good and free mini bar was amazing. I would stay at this hotel if I travel to Guadalajara again.

    I’ll be back!

    Great hotel, wonderful breakfast - overall a great hotel to stay at! Location is central to everything. The only thing that needs changed is their ice machines are every 5 floors . . . Really? You cant have on each floor?

    Family Vacation

    Excellent customer service, facilities and location. Arrived earlier than expected and we were provided our room earlier than check in time. Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Truly enjoyed our stay.
