RIU PALACE PACIFICO

The best part of this hotel was the view of the Ocean from the pool or from almost any room you could see the ocean. However the alcohol was diluted or watered down, there were only 3 restrooms on the whole resort and very far away, we had items stolen out of our room along with many other couples we talked too there, food was just average, I recommend going to Riviera Maya, Iberostar resorts way more variety food is better, friendlier people,

girlfriends gone out

The wait staff and pool staff area were great. The nightly shows were very entraining. The food was good and everything was nice. The front desk staff ruined the trip. If you check out five minutes late they want to charge you more money. There is never a manager to talk to and generally had a no care attitude. Because of the check out process was horrible I will never return to this hotel again..

Overall a decent place to stay....

For our first time to Nuevo Vallarta we had a great time. The location and views were awesome. The rooms were decent but the beds were not comfortable. We rated the food a 3 out 5. We found the buffet was much better than the food in the restaurants on the resort. My friend utilized the spa on the resort for a pedicure and manicure and didn’t have a good experience. They were inexperienced and not fully equipped. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Book ground transportation to and from the airport with your travel agent. Also, avoid talking to the agents in the airport when first arriving. They are selling you additional trips and packages if you sit in on 90 minute seminars.

Good service some inconveniences

Great customer service. Reservations required at all but one buffet restaurant was a pain. Took two days to get a reservation. Buffet was set up horrible and difficult to get good fresh food especially at breakfast. Other restaurant food was great. Room service a nice perk but only has cold food. Lounge chairs at pool fill up quickly. Pool was nice but would have preferred an adult pool as well to get away from the kids and large crowds.

A Queen for a Week

Glamorous surroundings in a truly royal Palace with all the included amenities, activities, entertainment and luscious dining and beverages that spoil you so much you are certain you have become a royal dignitary. We have made it a rule that on each trip, our royal selves must always stay at a Riu Palace.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Taxi north of the Palace to the small town of Bucerias to the beach market with several lanes of vendors with lot of fun shops at better pricing than going clear to Puerto Vallarta...

Great place to stay in your next vacations

This is the second time I stayed at this hotel and for sure I'll continue going. The rooms are very clean and spacious, you also have drinks in the rooms. The food is good although kind of fatty for my standards. The pool is jus great and there is a huge pool bar that makes it better.

enjoyable

The staff were polite, friendly and provided very good service. The accommodation suitable. The Peninsula is excellent, Kyoto bad, Krystal OK, Steak house mediocre.All the bars were well done with good service. The Italian restaurant has no idea of what a pizza is. I would return and recommend Riu to others
