While visiting Puerto Vallarta for the first time, I stayed at the Rivera del Rio. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Diego, who ran instantly to the kitchen to make margaritas and guacamole. We then sat and visited in the main lobby (which is more like a cozy living room) and Diego explained the ins and outs of the B&B. The staff was amazing and offer a variety of choices for breakfast in the morning.
After a short tour, I was thoroughly impressed and amazed at how beautiful the Rivera del Rio was. All of the rooms have their own separate entrances and it is very quiet and peaceful compared to the average hotel/resort.
We stayed in the Candelaria suite and it was incredible!! It included a private terrace and kitchen upstairs, the room and bathroom downstairs. The bed is the most comfortable thing I've EVER slept in!! The room was a great size for two people and the bathroom has a tub the size of a jacuzzi!!! (Air conditioning and WiFi is also a plus) Truly amazing...
The location is perfect as it is only minutes away from restaurants, bars, shops, and the beach. The locals are very friendly and I felt completely safe in this. Also, if you're not big on walking, the taxi rides are a flat rate of 50 pesos ($5).
As an airline employee, I have many choices as to where I choose to vacation and heard through the grapevine that the the Rivera del Rio was the place to stay. I couldn't agree more and will definitely be staying here again in the near future.
