couples trip

We loved our stay with another couple at the RIU! Great rooms and wonderful resort! The food was decent but not the ultimate all inclusive food. The hotel is really nice and friendly staff! Loungers were hard to come by unless you got down really early!

It was quite borring

Riu Palas Pacifico is a beautiful hotel. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is friendly and very helpful. However, we did not enjoy the trip so much as we enjoyed the one a year before at Riu Vallarta. Riu Palas is a hotel for vacationers who want quiet and no fun or action. The hotel had no clocks anywhere so the guests have no concept of time. The entertainment and music stopped at 11PM so there was nothing to do.

Best Trip Ever

Hotel was clean and beautiful. Staff was wonderful. Shows at night were fun. Buffet was incredible with great selection of foods at all meals. Restuarants varied, the Crystal and Steakhouse were very good. The Kyoto and Mexican were so-so. The selection of drinks was also very good.

beach and sun

The hotel was very elegant. The rooms are spacious. Food and staff were amazing. However, the hotel is big and takes up the entire resort. There's no walking paths, no vegetation to look at, no wildlife to be seen. I go on vacation to enjoy the beach, not the inside of a hotel. The beach is nice but there isn't a restroom in sight. You have to trek 5-10 minutes back to the hotel to use one of the two public restroom on the entire resort. They have no food zones, the bar and outdoor patio! They are also picky about men wearing shirt inside and sandals are needed as well.

Lovely location

The Riu Palace Pacifico was stunning and was absolutely worth the money spent. Everything was included and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only part that I wish I had known about prior to arrival was that the dinner reservations are made 4 days ahead of time, so everything was fully reserved for the first 4 days of our 6 day trip! But we ate at the buffet-style restaurant and ordered room service, which, to my surprise, was also included. We would definitely go back again.

Awesome couple's trip

The hotel was very beautiful and clean. The staff was more than helpful. We were really impressed with the medical staff and how helpful they were as my girlfriend ended up getting a double ear infection while we were down there. Even though we were not at the RIU where the dr was at, he made a special trip to our room (in a very timely matter) and also took phone calls with questions that we had while she was recovering. The front desk staff went above and beyond with checkin/late check out and restaurant reservations. They were even able to squeeze us in to the restaurant of our choice late in the evening without a reservation.

Excellent All- Inclusive Resort

This was our sixth stay at the Pacifico, which tells you how much we like the resort. The positives are: high quality resort layout, construction and finishing, superb buffet restaurant, excellent bars, very friendly and helpful staff, high standards of cleanliness and maintenance, great pool and swim-up bar, great beach location. Minor negatives are: washrooms too far from the beach, clumsy system for booking specialty restaurants, weird menu system in the specialty restaurants (but the food is excellent).

Great getaway

This hotel is perfect to get away for a few days, relax, eat, and have fun. The food isn't amazing but they provide tons of options to choose from. The unlimited alcohol is also great but can definetly get too intense for some. Overall I would stay here again because of the location and accessibility.
