My family likes to go to Riu chains. We love to stay in Riu Palaces due to the best service and great food. Well, Riu Palace Pacifico had great location and magnificent building. There is no complaint about room. It was cleaned every day. No problems with safe deposit box or bathroom. It has 24 hours Sport bar, plus 2... More

Had a few days off in December. Decided to get away. Mexico popped up on the 'good weather' front, but did not fancy Cancun . The Pacific coast it was. 5* Thompson graded. Fab rooms, housekeeping was outstanding. Bathrooms spotless. Choice of buffet or restaurants. Tried to use the restaurants as much as possible to get away from chaos of... More

Lots of beach to walk although the water is not good for snorkeling. Waves are high and fun to maneuver. Fresh fruit was passed out at the pool along with four days of grilled food that was... More

And with traveling with a group this large and this many age groups we have a lot of expectations. The rooms are large, we were upgraded to ocean view, which... More

This is my first time in Rio all inclusive resort. I have very mixed opinion regarding this resort. The property defiantly is very good. Beautiful hall, very nice furniture and nice Mexican team of other surrounding. The room is nice with nice furniture and amenity. The resort is very good maintained. But still, with all this nice things, I think... More

We came here back in May 2014 and I meant to write a review for it when I got back and I am just now getting around to it. I have been to all-inclusive resorts in Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen, and Cancun. The water in those 3 is a clearer blue but the dark blue water with the mountains in... More
