Everything about Rivera del Rio was unique and wonderful. Every single staff person was kind, courteous, and took extra time to make me feel welcome. The vibe in and around the public areas of the hotel (lounge/sitting area/breakfast zone) was relaxed. My room was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. I went to Puerto Vallarta for a friend's...

I have been visiting Vallarta and the surrounding towns for many years and I have stayed in many wonderful hotels. This year on a solo motorcycle ride, I discovered my favorite. From the moment I arrived, Grant and Mae (managers) took care of me and provided perfect service during my stay. Traveling alone, sometimes gets a little lonely. I immediately...

After reading the reviews here, I couldn't wait to make it to Riviera del Rio, and it more than met expectations. I mean, the place is stunning. It's unique, it's accommodating, and it's an island of solace in the city. This was our first stay in Puerto Vallarta, and I honestly couldn't imagine staying at one of the sterile, all-inclusive...

Don't usually write reviews, but I was so happy to stay at Rivera del Rio. It's off the beaten path and its not your typical hotel - there are masterfully designed rooms with beautiful beds, bathrooms, etc. And the walk from the center of town is cool - through a park walking across wooden bridges. If you want an authentic,...

Rivera Del Rio is a fantastic option for being in the heart of authentic Puerto Vallarta. The hotel has all the installations anyone could need and even though it had a few spring breaker guests, I didn't have to hear night clubs all night just the occasionally rooster!

The receptionist was excellent. He was welcoming and helpful with every aspect of my trip. As soon as I arrived, he took my bags, gave me a bottle water, a towel and had me sit and cool off from the heat outside. Check in process was seamless. He provided me with a map of the city. He told me the...

I normally stay up north in Punta de Burro for the great surfing. I wanted to escape the remote jungle and get the city feeling. Rivera del rio is artsy and has great service and close to everything. I'll be back

After much research, I decided on this hotel and it exceeded my expectations. This hotel was beautiful and in a great location. The staff were all helpful and very friendly. The room was beautiful and clean. The breakfast was beautifully executed and I couldn't have been happier.
