Great Resort

This is a great hotel. I like taking pictures and this place has a lot of picture perfect spots. The hotel is very clean and the lobby of this hotel is really nice. Hotel staff are very friendly and very helpful. The room is also great. I booked for an ocean view room and initially family was disappointed because the only ocean view available was on the 3rd level of the hotel (which is really 1st level). But I just requested for a different room the next day and they were able to accomodate the request and that really made our vacation more exciting. This hotel also offers a lot of entertainment day and night. The only think i just dont like is the themed restaurants reservation. they have 4 themed restaurants but i only was able to book 1 in our 5 days stay there. It is always fully booked. So if you want to eat in their themed restaurants do it right before you get your room number or else it will be too late. Overall, I recommend this resort. All the people who saw our pictures said that the resort is really nice.

Puerto Vallarta 2010

This is our second stay at Riu..Again they out did theselves and showed that the service is second to none!! [...] and many many others are the BEST! Room service to SERVE! They NEVER stop cleaning this place...SPOTLESS.. the food great and never ending. GO horse back riding...mountains rivers and again great food. Downtown PV is cool and you can find anything, YES even a LOT of timeshare hounds...just say No Gracias and smile and keep moving. The beach is miles long and you can see dolphins in the morning. No bugs!! It is noisey at night but fun noise as far as entertainment. Great place for couples, families or groups...so much to offer. We will probably go back but mostly for the awesome wonderful people who make up this Resort ....service is impecable!!

Just About Perfect

The RIU Palace Pacifico staff have been very well trained to provide every possible service needed to keep guests happy, and with a smile. Almost all the front line staff speak fairly good english. The rooms, restaurants, pool and beach facilities are all excellent. Our only complaint is that beach users have to wind their way along a very roundabout route around the pool area in order to get to a washroom. There should be washrooms nearer the beach, and a more direct beach access route. The hotel is about a 45 minute stroll along the beach to Bucerias, a small town with an interesting market and numerous tourist shops.

Take enough Mexican pesos for cabs, souvenirs, etc. You can use US dollars but the exchange rate will not be good.
