Stayed Feb 19-25th at the Riu Palace with my wife, and 8 others that included family and friends. There were never any issues with the resort itself. The location is in a newer part of the area, so a long 45 min ride is ahead of you if you want to go into the Puerto Vallarta area. We did this...

First trip in August 2016 which was totally excellent, staff could do not do enough to make you happy. Evening entertainment was varied and excellent highly recommended, we ate in the main restaurant most nights as we were always looked after and wanted for nothing with fabulous service. Have booked again for this year and cannot wait to return. Individual...

This was our fourth trip to Mexico but the first to the western coast. Although this hotel is in the tourist zone, PV and the surrounding area is much more authentically Mexican than Cancun or the Mayan Riviera and on balance we preferred it. We've stayed in Riu hotels before in the Caribbean and North Africa, the Pacifico meets the...

Sorry this review is late based on travel dates. But, If you’ve read any of my reviews, you’ll know Riu is my hotel of choice; I like their model. This Palace reminded me of the one in Cancun (layout, shape etc). Since there’s not much between models, I’ll touch on some of the differences. Let’s get to it. As with...

This was our fourth visit to the RPP, and overall we had a very nice vacation. Check in is quick and easy, and front desk was efficient throughout our stay with the exception of our check out at 5:15 a.m. for our early flight. We waited about 10 minutes for someone. Our Junior Suite room in the corner of the...

The Palace is a beautiful fully enclosed hotel so if you like to spend your vacation indoors this is your place. There are some small areas of outdoor eating but only at buffet. I prefer open air resorts so you can always feel as though you are outdoors. The pool is incredible and very likely one of the best I...

We just returned on Feb 16th from a 10 day stay at Riu Palace Pacifico. We fully enjoyed our time in Puerto Vallarta and the Riu Palace. Arrival - We arrived at the Puerto Vallarta airport on time and the weather was great. No issues navigating the airport or finding our Amstar representative. We got to our van and were...

Specialty restaurants were great. Most restaurants were full by 6:30 shortly after they opened and the wait list usually started about 7:50 - 8pm which was great as we were late diners. Get in line and get a cue and you are all set to enjoy a drink and wait for your table. Morning buffet was the least interesting as...

We travelled with friends and stayed for 2 weeks at the end of January. The weather was brilliant. It was hot, but not too hot around 27 degrees, absolutely wonderful and wonderful to get away from the English winter. GOOD POINTS The hotel is very clean and the staff very friendly. I had requested prior to travelling, for rooms close...

There are several reasons for four stars. My main concern: we travel as a family of four with friends and I booked this trip two months ahead, one reservation and same last name for all of us. Specifically requested the rooms to be close when made reservation. We still got rooms on different floors on the opposite sides of the...
