We are here on holiday at the moment and it's our first time in Mexico. Our room is great, a little noise at night but for gods sake people are on holiday enjoying their selves. Staff are awesome except for a sleazy bar man in the lobby bar. Beach is gorgeous, views of sunset and sunrise amazing. Drinks and food...

My wife and I stayed with our 9 year old, my parents and an aunt and uncle. While overall, we had an excellent time, it was more in spite of the resort rather than because of it. The beach is very nice, although also very crowded and they have a security guy that comes by and harasses people to bunch...

This was our 4th stay at the Riu Vallarta and would come back anytime. Bar and restaurant staff are friendly and cleaning staff did an excellent job of rooms. food was plentiful and there was always something to fill up on. If u don't like the food here there is something wrong with you. The only drawback is the location,...

I would recommend this property. Have stayed at about 10 all inc. The best part was there were lots of loungers at the pool and at the beach; and lots of shade in both places. We rarely ever put towels out and always found a nice spot. Only thing is the people that smoke. Money exchange can be done at...

What can I say...we love Riu Hotels. They are always at least a North American 4 star; the staff at all levels go out of their way to ensure you have a great vacation. The food is top notch. I get tired of people complaining about free wi-fi - turn the tech off! I get tired of people complaining about...

The rooms and location was very nice. The employees were excellent. The staff was very attentive. The beach is great for kids and families but, they pack people in at the beach. Be prepared to get up at 6:00am to save your chairs. The shows are very good. Our favorite was Michael Jackson show. The food was very disappointing. Even...
