Needs that Something Special

The room was great and the location was very nice. However, we felt as though the staff was not gay friendly. Also, the food was the same thing every single day and the quality left a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, we will probably not be visiting another RIU in the future.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

We had a wonderful lunch about a 1.5 mile walk north of the hotel at Karen's. That was by far the best food we had that week and the staff was super friendly.

Top. Notch.

From the second you step into the Riu Palace Pacifico lobby you instantly know that your vacation is going to be great. We stayed 5 nights at the Riu and spent the majority of the time at the hotel relaxing on the beach. I was concerned the beach area would be overcrowded and dirty, but that wasn't the case at all. No problem finding chairs and moving them out to a comfortable area in the sun. Most of the kids and parents seemed to stay around the pool area where the Riu staff were hosting games and water activities. "Super Mario" always seemed to keep them entertained. Why go to Mexico and sit around the pool - when you can relax next to the Pacific ocean on the beach? The rooms are kept in top-notch shape and very clean. The À la carte restaurants offer the best dining experience you'll ever have, in contrast to the buffet restaurants you will visit for breakfast, lunch, and casual dinner. There are a few things hotels in Mexico just don't get right: ketchup, maple syrup, and coffee. Aside from that minor gripe about the buffet restaurants, the food was pretty good. But to top it off - the best part about the Riu is the nightly "themed" shows they put on. From Elvis to Mamma Mia, they rock the house. I wasn't quite ready for the insane dancing and performance dished out every night by the staff. Would definitely go back to this resort and recommend it to friends.
