Riu Vallarta VS Pacifico

I have stayed at the Vallarta before but I can get a deal to stay at the Pacifico for about

120 bucks extra per person. Can anyone tell me if there are any real advantages to staying

there. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Pacifico is newer and from what I have read, more upscale (rooms, food, booze) and usually more couples and fewer families with kids.

We've been to both - I think that the Pacifico is less crowded maybe. Wait staff at pool and beach were always there to get drinks - very rarely did we wait long. It is quieter - less of a party atmosphere, but it was still good. For an extra $120. pp, I'd go there.

Wow. for 120 each well worth it. .

If you go to the Palace you can go to the other two. (Jalisco is closed until Mid NOV..for Reno.)

Palace has NO Disco.. so if this is your thing... you have to go to the other two.

Palace has NO sep. Adult pool..just One big pool... so whatever kids are there are allowed at the swim Up BAR.. Not Good IMHO.

been to both, liked Palace better in terms of food, service, facility, etc. Also, palace has room service in case you came back from a day trip late and the restaurants are closed ...

plus as said, you can use the other two Riu's...
