Worth the travel to get to this location

Staff was exceptional. The facility was spotless and well maintained. The food was quite good, however there were some items in the specialty restaurants that may not meet your expectations.The pool area was nice but you need to have your deck chairs reserved by 8:15 AM or you will not get a poolside location.

So glad we went into Puerto Vallarta on Saturday. The market shopping was fun - bargaining is an acquired art! The Boardwalk was cool with the statues and awesome sand art. Food options are endless. We had a great day adventure!

Hard To Beat

We have stayed at many all-inclusive resorts. The Riu Palace rates at the top. The food, rooms, pool, staff, and more are exceptional. I have read reviews from other travelers about the buffet. The food is very good here. If you can't find something you like then you are too picky. I tried a lot of different things and never had anything that I didn't finish. There is a wide variety every day. The staff at the resort is the best. The front desk, wait staff, bartenders, housekeeping all were very helpful and friendly. I am sure I could think of a few negative things to say but they would be very trivial and not worth bringing up. Some people like to always find something to lower their rating of a resort but I can't with this one. This is a place that you can be assured that you will have a great vacation.

Spectacular!

We went for a beach wedding which was beautiful! The entire stay was great. We hung out at the pool, went on a great catamaran sailing tour to Marietas Island and did snorkeling. The sail was great and highly recommended! The food at all the restaurants were very good, but having the buffet at La Peninsula was the best! It had a huge variety! The entire hotel staff was extremely friendly and courteous and always willing to help. We highly recommend Rui Palace Pacifico!
