This has become our annual vacation and this year we decided to stay at the Riu Pacifico Palace in Puerto Vallarta. It was between this and the Fiesta Americana (which we stayed at in Cancun Last Year and was amazing). We decided to try something different and were not disappointed. We all read a ton of reviews before booking and...

When we arrived we were greeted by Blanca who gave us a nice glass of...

Good value, food was OK. Hard to be great when making that amount of food 24/7. Good value for sure, too bad I didn't realize until the last day mojitos came in different flavours. The champagne of sparkling wine wasn't very good, just about any bottle of Prossecco would have been better.

We were at the RIU from June 27th & left July 3rd. Had a blast. Food was great! Staff amazing. Enjoyed the entertainment. Everyone speaks English!! Went on excursions and they were all safe. If you want a good seat at the pool, go early and save a seat with your towel. I highly recommend this resort!!
