We travelled on the Dreamliner to the Riu Vallarta in August 2014. The plane was excellent although the cabin crew on the way home were at best grumpy. The hotel and food were excellent. Riu certainly know how to make good use of all the land available. The food in the Don Raphael was excellent so much so that we... More

A typical 4 star Riu Hotel, well worth the extra for the studio bedroom and sea views. We were at the end of the hurricane season but still managed a few swims in the sea. The katmaran trip was well worth it and the trip to the Tequila distillery. We were first on the beach every morning and the beach... More

Lovely old art deco style hotel, spotless, great staff, very good food although repetative. Very noisy hotel not the place to go for a relaxing holiday. Yes there are two pools but screaming children were using both, also lots of sunbeds but the usual towels on beds at 7 in the morning and not a german in sight! Local transport... More

Riu Vallarta: First things first when we were picked up at the airport (by sun wing) an off colored joke was made by our guide that our hotel was inferior to the Riu palace. It was an innocent joke but after spending a lot of money on a trip you don't want to hear that. Not appreciated. Bad way to... More

My partner and I stayed at Riu Vallarta from 18th – 25th Sept 2014. It was booked for a really reasonable price on a last min deal. We flew like most others on the Thompson Dreamliner which is a nice plane but in all honesty still very similar to any other plane we have flown on. Arriving at the airport/hotel... More

The Dreamliner was fantastic but we had leg room seats at the front row and was very quashed. Seats could be wider & the tray was too small. The Hotel was lovely, but I wouldn'd class it as a 5*. I have been in 5* hotels and this was not at the same standard. Food could be better but OK.... More
