    My wife, daughter and I went for two weeks, for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we couldn't have wished for anything better. Loved everything about this holiday. All the staff were attentive, efficient and ensured you got everything you desired. Food was hot and well served. It always looked good, with an excellent selection of food types and the other...

    So I had read lots of reviews but went with an open mind - will try to put each area into a section so not a long paragraph: Pool: Yep the towel game had to be played - didn't want to but at 8am each morning I was down securing a few beds - we got the seats we wanted... More

    As most people do I work hard to enable me to go on holiday. This said I try to choose wisely so make sure that those two weeks are of a high standard and meet our needs. Riu hotels are one of the few hotel chains that always fit the bill. You basically know what your getting before you go.... More

    Went a couple years back with my family. Must say that this was the most beautiful resort we have ever been to and everything was phenomenal ! The food was magnificent and the staff were just great. The only downside was every time it rained lots of jelly fish would be washed up into shallow waters so people would get... More

    Just back from a 2 week holiday at the amazing Riu Vallarta. The staff at the hotel can't do enough for you they work so hard. The food is great we ate at the buffet most of the time but the other restaurants are very good too. Drinks are great especially the blue ocean cocktail. Hotel is spotlessly clean and... More

    We spent at Riu Vallarta 2 wonderful weeks. The hotel itself was clean and well maintained. It´s not the latest type of hotel - it might need some alteration when it comes to furniture and facilities as somebody would point out but we didn´t mind. The room was clean, the beach was nice with plenty sunbeds and also the restaurants... More

    We are just about to finish our first beach holiday in a number of years having been on cruises with Cunard and P&O for the past five years. We found that the flight was excellent. There was plenty of room and the service was very good. The transfer was very quick as was the check in at the hotel. We... More

    Although it could do with redecoration, the great staff at this hotel kept everything spotlessly clean. Room was comfortable and cleaned every day. And mini bar/fridge replenished. Plenty of choice and variety of food. Service in bars and restaurants was very good. There were some large groups who got a bit drunk and rowdy while we were there but this... More

    My adult daughters and I returned from Nuevo Vallarta on Sunday after staying two weeks at Hotel Riu Vallarta. After reading the very mixed reviews about this hotel I was concerned but there was no need to be. We loved the art-decor lobby, definitely does not need updating, perfect as it is. Our room was spacious and cleaned daily. The... More
