perfect honeymoon

This was our first ACTUAL vacation we have ever taken in over 9 years together, that didn't involve a friend's wedding, family reunion, or camping in the woods. The Riu Vallarta is so beautiful and clean. It seemed like there was ALWAYS someone cleaning something - but the staff was courteous enough to wait until about 8am to start (letting us sleep in). Because we were one day late arriving due to weather, we didn't get the upper floor we wanted/reserved, instead got room 1021 - which turned out to be perfect - got the breeze off the ocean, but not too much sun in the afternoon plus, we were just steps away from the plaza. Once we closed the inner door, the hallway and disco sounds were gone! The bed was pretty hard - I suggest calling the front desk for a soft pad. The shower is the most amazing thing ever! Bigger than some apartments I have lived in!! Others have complained that they can't get a chair by the pool or the beach - I found the secret - get up at 8am, just walk down and PICK whatever chair you want! The pool always had chairs in the afternoon - just in time for the Crazy Game! Unfortunately we were a little disappointed with the food - too American-ized or geared for tourists - we would have loved to see more traditional Mexican food than the 3-4 options each day. maybe a traditional Mexican restaurant could take the place of the VERY loud, not very tasty Nirvana - we had to dress UP for buffet?? We did go to Mariscos Gordo in Bucerias a couple of times via taxi and that place is SUPERB!! Otherwise, the ever-flowing chips and guacamole made me happy! Teresa and Victor at the lobby bar are super funny and fast - why can't American baristas make a latte as fast as them - thank you Teresa for suggesting a Chelada (beer, little sour mix, ice and salt rim) - perfect for the hot afternoon. We will definitely be back and hopefully not another 10 years until our next vacation!

Very Nice!

My husband and I had a very pleasant time. The hotel was gorgeous, food was awesome, and service was great. We spent a great deal of time on the beach and our room was to die for.

Spring Break Vacation

My family and I stayed at the RIU for one week during spring break. It was a great trip and the staff is very nice. There are many restaurants to choose from and the food was great! There are many activities during the day and the beach is really nice compared to the older part of Puerto Vallarta we have stayed at. The rooms are comfortable and come stocked with water and soda that is replenished everyday.

Family Vacation

We enjoy staying in Nuevo Vallarta because the beaches are much nicer. We also enjoy the walk to Bucerius for shopping. The people all over in Puerto or Nuevo Vallarta are always friendly and always helpful. We have been going to Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta for the past 10 years and hopefully will continue. The RIU is one of the nicer hotels in the area. It is very clean. The staff work day and night to assure the facility is clean. The bar tenders and waiters were very helpful, always smiling and ready to go the extra mile.
