We are a family of four, two adults and two boys under 10 and we loved it! Check-in was a breeze, the lobby is beautiful. I was initially concerned when I read reviews about the rooms still having keys instead of key cards, but it was fine. The only complaint would be the size of the key chain, it was...

We stayed here for two weeks as a family of four. The hotel is lovely and only about half hour from the airport. As soon as you enter the foyer you are greeted with a welcome drink and handed your room key. Suitcases are then taken to the rooms by the very efficient bellboys. The foyer is dark and provides...

This was our 3rd time in PVR and our 6th time in Mexico at All-Inclusives and I have to say it met all of my expectations. First off the staff was amazing! Started with a very easy check-in to house keeping, to bar and wait staff, everyone was on point with a smile on their face. The resort had a...

The resort wasn't anything spectacular. Staff was courteous and polite. We booked the lowest prices rooms, basically no view of pool beach courtyard. Upon arriving we paid $120 and upgraded to a junior sweet and a king room on the sane floor for for nights and five days. The food had a lot of variety but nothing to write home...

This was our second trip to the Riu Vallarta and we enjoyed it as much as the first time. All the staff are very hard working...from the dining room (Enrique had our cappucino every morning and Tavo took good care of us at dinner) to the kids club staff to the maids to those who keep the pool bathrooms clean....

We booked this as a last minute getaway. It was our first holiday as a couple, and we enjoyed it quite a lot. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because I think there are a few things that put a downer on it for us. One of those reasons was the food. For the first week it...

The property was beautiful and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and pool bar was fun and relaxing. The beach was clean and even had drinks brought out. Our room was clean and included a mini bar with bottles that was cool. The mattress was uncomfortable so request a mattress topper. The view from our balcony...

I did have a good time at the Riu Vallarta. It was just nothing special. The food got boring after 3 days! And some of the staff weren't all that helpful, but they did work very hard! The beach was nice and the hotel really wanted to give you an authentic taste of Mexican traditions. Overall my stay was mediocre,...
