Riu Palace Pacifico

Excellent hotel. Wonderful service. Stick to the mexican fare for lunch. It's the best thing on the buffet. Upgrade to the full ocean view - it's worth the difference. Rooms spotless. Great staff. wonderful entertainment. Perfect vacation!

tremendous value,fanastic staff

have stayed at 10 other riu hotels in mexico, this one is great. all the staff from the entertainment staff, bartenders and waiters were super friendly and helpful. the head lady of the resort, [...] was super accomodating, the young lifeguard,[...], was great, in fact he saved a young hispanic boys life who had virtually drowned, but [...] worked on him for 5 minutes and brought the kid back to life. the parents wereon the beach, 100 yards from the incident in the pool. had two great beach parties during the week.the staff constantly had my wife and myself dancing. the michael jackson show one night was very,very good.if you like to drink, order doubles or dobles, and you will never complain about watered down cocktails. food in the buffet was better than most and the sspecialty restaurant ,[...] was fantastic.would highly recommend staying here. we will go back

VERY GOOD HOTEL AND EMPLOYEES

PUERTO VALLARTA DOES NOT HAVE MUCH TO SEE, SO WE ONLY VISITED THE CITY ONE AFTERNOON. WE STAYED AT THE HOTEL THE REST OF THE TIME, 9 NIGHTS. THIS HOTEL IS THE BEST OF THE RIUs IN PVR. THE BUFFETS AND RESTAURANTS ARE VERY GOOD, ALTHOUGH THE SEAFOOD WAS LESS THAN FRESH ABOUT 20% OF THE TIME. IE. ONE SHRIMP OUT OF FIVE WOULD NOT BE GOOD. SAME WITH THE MUSSELS. DESSERTS WERE THE USUAL, ADEQUATE ALTHOUGH NOT OF HIGH QUALITY INGREDIENTS. BUT PRETTY! A LOT OF PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. THE ICE CREAMS AND FRUIT WERE BETTER ALTERNATIVES. THE QUACAMOLE RESTAURANT IS THE BEST OF THE FOUR RESTAURANTS. THE HOTEL ENTERTAINMENT IS OK SOME NIGHTS AND GREAT OTHER NIGHTS. POOL IS VERY NICE, BUT THE DANCERS AND LOUD ANNOUNCER DAILY AT 3:OO PM WAS VERY ANNOYING. WE NOTICED ONLY ABOUT 15 PEOPLE PAID ATTENTION TO THEM EACH DAY, SO, MANAGERS, WHAT'S THE POINT? THE BEACH IS NICE, THE WATER COLD AND MURKY. TO THEIR CREDIT THE BEST PART OF THE HOTEL ARE THE EMPLOYEES. 100% FREINDLY AND READY TO DO THEIR BEST TO PLEASE. AND THE BUILDING ITSELF IS NEW AND VERY NICE, ALTHOUGH A BIT QUIRKY IN THE DECOR. IE. BRASS FANS IN THE LOBBY, AND ROMAN AND GREEK STATUES IN THE GARDEN. OVERALL THE EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT AS GOOD AS ONE CAN HOPE FOR FROM AN ALL INCLUSIVE. WOULD I IN HINDSIGHT VISIT AGAIN OR REFER THIS HOTEL, THE ANSWER IS YES!

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE WHALES UP CLOSE AND SAVE TIME, WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE ABOUT 4-6 BOATS IN THE BAY ABOUT NOON. THIS HAPPENS DAILY. THESE ARE THE WHALE WATCHING BOATS THAT HAVE FOUND SOME WHALES. NOW GO TO THE BEACH AT THE HOTEL AND RENT A JETSKI FOR 2 FOR 35 MIN ($45) OR 60 MIN AND GO SEE THE WHALES! NO NEED TO SPEND HALF A DAY OR MORE ON A BOAT WITH WHO KNOWS WHO! SAVE TIME AND $$.

Awesome stay at the RIU Palace Pacifico

This was the best all inclusive that I've ever stayed at and was nearly perfect from check-in to check out. This is definitely much more relaxed than the Cancun/Riveria May side of Mexico. The attentive service was non-stop. The room was wonderful and more than expected as the partial ocean view was 80% ocean/mountains. We were able to book all 4 theme restaurants with the Steak House being the favorite. The buffet food was very good but the variety tends to be the same over the course of a week. My only "complaint" is that there are no bathroom facilities at the pool so one has to walk either to the spa or lobby. I had read that the tub surface could be slick when stepping in and out of which is very true so one had to use extreme care when showering. Other than those two extremely minor inconveniences everthing else was awesome. I would definitely return to this beautiful paradise!!
