I have been visiting puerto vallarta with my family and friends since i was a kid, and stayed at mamy different resorts, however riu vallarta is by far my favourite! The food is always fresh, rooms are clean, and service is perfect. Last visited the only con was very rude and loud guests, but of course that is not the...

Very fast check and cool drink provided - but it took 45 minutes and a phone call for our cases to get to our room. The staff at this hotel are generally excellent and they are constantly cleaning - but it just wasn't for us. We'd asked for a quiet room and got one of the outside facing rooms but...

Having stayed at a Riu before in Mexico, I had high expectations but if I'm honest I felt a little dissapointed, we had a junior suite on the 7th floor which was spacious, bathroom needed a bit of TLC as there were big cracks in the tiles & the handrail in the bath was coming away from the wall.Pool towels...

Just returned last Friday. For a one week vacation, this hotel is very clean. Stuffs are very helpful. There are many choices for the food.Fruits are fresh and delicious. Beach is very close to the hotel. I like the fried fish in Flamingo restaurant. My room is mountain view but very quite, better to sleep at early night 9-10 PM.

We booked for a week and we were disappointed when we saw the weather review the week prior- all clouds and thunderstorms! We needn't have worried, it didn't impact on our holiday at all and we saw not a drop of rain! We are two friends in our 30's and this was our first all inclusive and I was impressed,...

Got home yesterday after 2 fantastic weeks at the Riu Vallarta. We travelled Premium club on the Dreamliner – good value for money and a great start to the holiday.
