Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Walk down the beach about 40 minutes to the town of Bucerias where it is half price on almost everything that they sell at the resort at night. Also, have nice restaurants and street vendors if you are tired of eating the food at the resort.

Fantastic Family Gateway

The service was excellent: Bar, Restaurant, and room. Room was clean and done everyday, even created towel sculptures daily. All inclusive was the best part, anything anytime.

Another day in Paradise

Another great stay! The employees did so many little things for us. We mention a Birthday and whole cake with a candle appears-and the Birthday song!!! Excellent bar service around the pool and beach!!! Jimmy in the Sports bar making sure a Birthday was special! Waiters making us feel special. Always impressed at the cleanliness of the public restrooms! Our Birthday girl was in her mid 70's and had a great time. That said- the shower/tub is harder for some people to get in and out of and a few more handrails are good for everyone, especially around the pool. The week after Thanksgiving was really good-not prime time for the masses but superb weather. This could be an annual thing!

Riu Palace Pacifico

The Riu was excellant, the staff was exceptional, always there to help you. We had no problems getting dining reservations at any of the 4 onsitge restaurants onsite for any of the evenings that we were there (we have been at other all inclusive hotels and it was a challenge to make dining reservations). Travel to down town Puerto Vallarta was easy, either by bus (just outside of the hotel or via taxi). On selected nights they had markets set up to sell authentic mexican made products, with no pressure to buy anything. We had a late flight (after check out) and the hotel let us check out and still enjoy the amenties until our flight left. You won't be disapointed when you stay at a Riu.

RIU Palace Pacifico

Great Resort, Great Services, management is very friendly and easy to work with if you need something... The first thing I noticed when I walked in, was the most beautiful staff of all resorts I've been to (about 20). and all are very friendly. Puerto Vallarta does have rules regarding no noise after 11, so partying outside is hard to do afterwords and there is no club on the inside... However, there is a sports Bar that's open 24/7 with pool tables, air hockey, music, and drinks!!! room service is great. twice a day. pool is small but great service... awesome spa... food, for my taste, was ok. not bad but nothing special. beach has no umbrellas like most usually do but plenty of palm trees.. the best part was probably the rooms (that you don't spend all that time in). all rooms have clear or partial ocean view. Spacious. the luxury or bridal suits are amazing. on the edge of resort (ocean side) with huge balcony with Jacuzzi. also a walk in closet and Huge King size bed with a jacuzzi inside as well. also a small living room (studio style). Over all good relaxing experience.. HAVE FUN!!!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Vallarta adventures can take you on a boat (30 minute speed boat for up to 10people or 1 hour cruiser for up to 60 people) to Las Calletas beach. very nice beach, lots of water activities, very pretty scenery, and nice dining... they do a lot of weddings there at night because of how pretty it is... Don't try to get there in a car, it's not possible.

Great Vacation

The food was great and it was nice to have a good gym to help with all the food we ate. Would have liked a better scale in the gym to track what we were gaining. We were at the Palace last year for two week and liked it so much that we came back with frineds for 3 weeks this year.

Thanksgiving week vacation

Everything was absolutely great! (except beds were a bit hard and a double bed is not truly a double bed...it is in between a twin and a full)
