Keep looking if you want to relax

The hotel was far from the center of Puerto Vallarta and there is nearly nothing to do in Nuevo Vallarta. The hotel claims there are 5 restaurants available for dining, but really only 2 are open every night and reservations are available for less than 75 people. The food at the international buffet is mediocre. The hotel environment is VERY loud. Bring earplugs if you plan on getting any rest.

Take the bus to Puerto Vallarta. You'll save yourself a lot of money if you skip the taxis!

This location-5th time

Golfing is close by but don't go during rainy season. Only 1 restaurant was open. I guess because of economics. There weren't many people there. We have been to this RIU 5 times and will go back. It is an average hotel but very clean and quiet. The food is good but buffets get tiring. But for the price we were able to go out and eat 3 times. Would recommend this hotel.

Worst Hotel Ever!

I have been to Mexico several times and have always enjoyed the wait staff. This group was not very happy to be working. The hotel looked clean from a distance but wasn't even close when you went to sit down. Ran out of knives and forks several times so we had to wait to eat and then I wasn't sure if items were cleaned properly. Because of this experience Mexico is off our list for awhile.

North of PV

Ok so there were a lot of kids there, that is fine, everyone needs a vacation, but if you stay in August and want to avoid a lot of families, then start after kids go back to school (8/23). Also this hotel has a nice beach, north of city, takes around 45 minutes to get to PV. Would not recommend if you want to be closer to the city action and nightlife. Sailing included, but you can go to other RIU for that too. Beds not very comfortable linens are cheap. Overall you get what you pay for. Cheap getaway with a focus on booze and beach, Great! Romantic anniversary or honeymoon, not a good choice.

Think of the hotel like an Island. Sure you can walk to other nearby hotels along the beach. But don't you want to get out and do other activities, snorkel, shop, etc? You will need to take a cab to get off the island. ;)

"Oh, so-so"

Our stay at the RIU was average, the rooms were clean, not spotless, our room fridge was never re-stocked, the hallways were very noisy until at least 3 am. The resort was very crowded - from the pool to the restaurants. Even the restaurants that you did not have to make reservations at had a wait at times. The best experience I had was an amazing massage at the spa.

"Kids On"ly Resort

The resort was nice, but there were way too many kids...and I understand kids come to resorts too, but they have a separate pool for the kids, yet there was no one monitoring the kids that were constantly overcrowding the adult pool. The resort is too far from the city and the cab fairs coming and going begin to dig in your pockets after awhile. The hot food was good, but I could never eat a salad or fruit because they were always infested with fleas and/or fruit flies.
