Fantastic Hotel, Superb Staff
Adam S, Castleford

We stayed at the Riu Palace Pacifico in July/August 2017, having previously visited the Riu Palace Peninsula, Cancun in 2014. Puerto Vallarta is a much more natural destination when compared to the relatively man made Cancun, with jungle backed beaches, and traditional Mexican towns with markets etc. The weather was great, very hot 30-35 Celsius all day, with rain/thunderstorms most evenings (it never rained during the daytime). The hotel was great. Fantastic location, exemplary service, great traditional style rooms and outstanding food. The Thompson tour rep, Kia, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Nothing was too much for her. We took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer on excursions with Vallarta adventures (which is great value) choosing luxury sailing, off road adventure and rhythm of the nights. Would highly recommend all the these activities. The biggest plus for this holiday, apart from the outstanding food, was the Riu staff! All staff were fantastic, friendly, approachable and delivered service second to none. Please try speaking a little Spanish! It goes a long way! Special mention to the following staff who made our stay extra special, and are a credit to Riu hotels: Janet & Araceli (Buffet Restaurant) Lucero & Johanna (Buffet Restaurant) Julian (Buffet Restaurant) Lili (Piano bar) Veronica (Piano bar) Rolando (Sports Bar) All staff in Pool Bar (cannot remember names) The only slight complaint/suggestion would be the the pool requires some attention, particularly the tiles that need replacing. Perhaps a full pool refit is in order? Also, use mosquito repellent! Without it, unless you are lucky, you'll be eaten alive! We discovered 'OFF!' spray, available in most shops, and didn't have a single bite when using it. Stock up, and enjoy! Would 100% recommend this hotel, and definitely recommend Puerto Vallarta over Cancun any day of the week!

wonderful Holiday

we visited this hotel as a birthday surprise for my mother (75) & my daughter (21) we had lovely rooms, the only drawback is that we were on the first floor, and if you wanted an early night that was not possible as you could heard the band in the evening. food was plentiful and everything from a light snack to a full meal we had a wonderful holiday, one we will never forget

We started with a room on the 4th floor with a partial view of the ocean and it was a good view and the room was big and very clean, we upgraded after 2 days to a room with a full view of the ocean and a Jacuzzi on the balcony and this was paradise, My wife was overjoyed on the room and really made the trip over the top. The room was very big with a separate shower and bath tub next to the bed. also has a full bar with 4 types on liquor and a fridge full of water, sodas and beer. feel free to help yourself to any and all as they will refill the next day. The room service was fast to act on any needs we had and all the staff were great. Food time now, so many choices to choose from and so much food to eat you will not be hungry during your stay. The steak house was great with big plates of food. the steak was outstanding, and the chicken and shrimp cabob was just as good. they also served Lobster and a few other dishes. Also their was a Mexican restaurant that we did not get to,

Nice place

Hotel was beautiful! This was our first time staying at any of the Riu Hotels. It felt very "standardized" if that makes sense. The highlights are the swim up bar is set-up like a little bar separated from the pool which was really nice. The full staff was amazing. The daily pool side games are fun and very entertaining. Everything was super clean. They have a ton of options for food. I felt the food was only ok compared to other resorts we have stayed in the past. Nightly shows are really well done. Over all we had a great time. I felt the hotel has a little older crowd and was a little far from downtown PV.

Great Vacation

A wonderful place to go unwind for a week. The staff is friendly and courteous. The food is above average for an all inclusive. There's always plenty to eat and drink. Everyone there wants you to enjoy yourself.
