Beautiful beach, fun ambiance, EH food

Visited Rui Jax Saturday De 13- Wed 17, with my little family Hubby, 18 month and I. It's a great family resort. A lot of families, pool was kid friendly, great lay out of pool, palms, beach chairs. Only got to go to one show Michael Jackson which was GREAT! The buffets were convenient. Food was not best, sit in, nor buffets but I didn't expect great food in a budget hotel. I loved being able to go to buffet by beach for lunch and bring food back to beach. Also hamburger stand was convenient, just wished it would've been tacos al pastor we were in Mexico. Saturdays there was a Mariachi at La Cantina. Wished they had them every night. Sunday staff was short and Michelada bar guy wasn't cruising the pool as much as Saturday so that was unfortunate. But bar staff is FAST. Even if you see a long line you won't wait long. Reason only giving a 3 was because of food. I've been to Puerto Vallarta before and on a weeks' stay EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS at each and every different restaurant we ate! So I was really excited to come back and have delicious chilaquiles and coffee which I did not :(. Food was edible but definitely not authentic and delicious.

Nice trip with daughter

Good place to spend less $ and have a nice experience with adult daughter. RIU was standard - nice rooms (small) and well kept (hard beds with plastic sheeting), grounds were beautiful, pools not large enough to accomodate size of property - crowded - beach was perfect. (Didn't like sea snakes) Very tired of buffets - and like every other review - the line at 7:30 am to get a speciality restaurants was ridiculous - had to stand in line for over hour one day. Total waste and irritant on a vacation. Why can't RIU figure it out like other resorts have?? Otherwise, good value.

Great hotel

This was our first trip to Pto Vallarta and we were very nervous. The hotel was far away from the city, very safe and clean. A lot of people with kids, but we loved it because we were with family and friends too. The buffets were amazing, great food and very friendly staff. Enterntainment was also great, from shows to karaoke, to fiestas at the beach. This hotel has something to offer to everyone and I would strongly recomment it to families with kids. Just a tip: the kids pool is deep so keep an eye on your kids.
