Great Get Away

We had a great time at the Riu Palace Pacifico. The resort is on the smaller side, but is very well maintained. Staff were constantly seen cleaning throughout the resort. There was one theatre that offered entertainment at night. The specialty restaurants offered a good variety and the lunch buffet was pretty much the same every day. You were able to visit the other Rui resorts, but they were too far to walk to at night in the dark. While the area seems like it's safe, our group wasn't willing to risk it. The rooms were also on the smaller side. We upgraded to a partial ocean view suite. We'd recommend asking for a room on a higher floor facing the vacant property next to the resort. The beach sand was nice, except for areas where little rocks had been pushed to shore. Overall the stay was great, the staff was accommodating and it was great for a long weekend get away!

Great Getaway for the money

The place has a great first impression and the staff was excellent. Very friendly.....spoke good English and were patient. The view was very nice. The beaches aren't the best, but it gave us exactly what we wanted.....Sun, relaxation, and a dip when we needed it. They only thing I wish they had was some background ambiance music. Other than that we were very happy to spend our 25 year anniversary at the Riu Palace.

Not Quite Palace

Room not ready; check in clerk rude did not care. Hotel showing its age; needs update and refurbishment. Pool good, but also showing age; Room cleaning frequently late. Buffet restaurant marginal to fair; Selection and cooking style marginal. Lunch at beach had poor choices. Specialty restaurants: Steakhouse - fair; Japanese and Mexican - Good; Krystal; - Excellent. Entertainment; 5 days - 2 good shows, 1 fair; 2 poor. Multiple bars but limited choices in liquors; bartenders had unusual styles for cocktails; sometimes unrecognizable. Definitely not up to the standard of the Riu Palace in Riviera Maya; Questionable if worth the plus cost compared to other Riu hotels in the same location.

What's to Love

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

The teal ocean and breezy palms on the white sand of Flamingos Beach. Swoon-worthy.

RiuLand, where kiddos can get immersed in arts and crafts while you enjoy some sand 'n surf therapy.

Sipping on cocktails and watching the crazy beautiful pinky orange sunsets over the water.

The spa where you can descend into stress-smashing messages & thalassotherapy, a seawater treatment.

The in-pool loungers where you can chillax, swim around a bit, then return to work on your tan.

 

What We'd Change

You'll love venturing into downtown Puerto Vallarta, but keep in mind, the cruise ships generally come in on Tuesday and Thursday so it can be busier on those days.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 8 miles away from the airport. Blink, and you'll be there.

Don't miss horseback riding in the Sierra Madres or swimming with the dolphins in Banderas Bay.

There's an 18-hole, championship golf course that a coconut's throw away.

Check out the bodyboarding (it's very popular), windsurfing, catamarans and more. Dive in.

On land, there's volleyball, billiards and for the flexible/bendy types, there's gymnastics.
