My husband and I, along with our sister and brother-in-law, visited the Pacifico 5/23 – 5/30/15 through AppleVacations. Our ages range between 52 - 64. This was our 7th RIU visit and AGAIN did not disappoint. Weather was gorgeous, in the high 80’s the entire trip with absolutely NO rain. As RIU Class Gold Members, we contacted Blanca in customer...

We are sitting here at the airport thinking back to our 8 nights at the Riu Palace. This resort is a solid 4 star. I read a lot of reviews before coming and everyone pretty much described it right on. I did write customer service an email before we showed up to book one dinner reservation, tell them about my...

This hotel lives up to its Palace rating! We stayed for 2 weeks in May and can't fault the hotel - first class service from everyone. The buffet and other restaurants serve hot tasty food - you would have to be really choosy to not find something to your taste. The hotel is spotless and well maintained. The only grumble...

I have a new Mexico many times; Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, San Jose del Cabo, in this time we were in Nuevo Vallarta. This was our first trip to Nuevo Vallarta and our first fall ( October 2013) trip to Mexico and our first stay at a RIU Resort. Everything was spectacular and clean. The food and all the restaurants were...

Two weeks ago my girlfriend and I had a week in this hotel and could not fault the service, food and cleanliness. The taxi transfers when booked through Thomson really helped after a 11 hour flight. The room was large, clean and had a fantastic sea view, oh and a hydro bath to take away all your travel stress :-)....

My wife and I had a week break at Riu Palace Pacifico. The weather for March was a bit hit and miss, some very warm days and other days filled with clouds and rain. The hotel itself is very good, the rooms are very good, we had no complaints where we were situated and we were a few floors above...

We stayed for a week - May 22-29-2015. This is a very clean resort, except for the pool in the afternoon.
