From the first moment of arriving we felt very welcome, the check in is super-fast. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Cannot fault the rooms, restaurant or the service. The only problem we found was the pools and surrounding area was way too small for the size of the hotel and most of the sunbeds round the pool...

We travelled September 14 and had a great time at this hotel. The entertainment staff went above and beyond, same with bar and housekeeping. The only bit that let them down very occasionally were the restaurant staff who sometimes ignored you. We did some of the excursions which again were all great, you have to get a taxi to the...

All the staff were attentive, efficient and ensured you got everything you desired. Food was hot and well served. It always looked good, with an excellent selection of food types and the other...

As most people do I work hard to enable me to go on holiday. This said I try to choose wisely so make sure that those two weeks are of a high standard and meet our needs. Riu hotels are one of the few hotel chains that always fit the bill. You basically know what your getting before you go....

Went a couple years back with my family. Must say that this was the most beautiful resort we have ever been to and everything was phenomenal ! The food was magnificent and the staff were just great. The only downside was every time it rained lots of jelly fish would be washed up into shallow waters so people would get...

Just back from a 2 week holiday at the amazing Riu Vallarta. The staff at the hotel can't do enough for you they work so hard. The food is great we ate at the buffet most of the time but the other restaurants are very good too. Drinks are great especially the blue ocean cocktail. Hotel is spotlessly clean and...

We spent at Riu Vallarta 2 wonderful weeks. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. It´s not the latest type of hotel - it might need some alteration when it comes to furniture and facilities as somebody would point out but we didn´t mind. The room was clean, the beach was nice with plenty sunbeds and also the restaurants...

We are just about to finish our first beach holiday in a number of years having been on cruises with Cunard and P&O for the past five years. We found that the flight was excellent.
