We arrived on Saturday 11th July after a ten and a half hour flight to a cold drink and an upgrade to a suite which overlooked the ocean and had its own patio and hot tub. So far, excellent! The views from the room were lovely - you could see clearly for miles along the coast on either side, and...

Our other two experiences were great. Here are reasons to book at the RIU. 1. Service - bars, meals, lobby, restaurants -people bring you to tears with their warmth and heart for...

My fiancee and I stayed at the Riu Palace for a full week. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but would we do it again? Only if we were looking for a completely trouble free resort where we don't really do anything else but lounge around next to the pool/beach, eat and drink. Annoyances - Too for from downtown Puerto Vallarta...

The front desk staff, the entertainment crew, the bar men , everybody was charming all of the time. Loved everything coming back in November hope we get room 2074 great views...

This is a typical Riu Palace, you can expect clean, comfortable room, nice grounds and good service with or without tip. Food is superb, if anyone is complaining I feel sorry for them, because they don't know what to choose or are used to fast food places. Get room service for their cheesecake, they only have it with the room...

My husband and I just returned from our vacation where we celebrated our best friends wedding as well as our 10.5 year wedding anniversary. We were greeted with yummy drinks at the check in and were complimentary upgraded to a Suite from our Jr. Ocean view Suite. Talk about being spoiled!
