This charming hotel is a must if your planning a trip to Puerto Vallarta. The staff makes you feel like family! The ambiance is amazing and the rooms are unlike anything you'll ever experience at a larger impersonal hotel.

We had such an amazing experience staying at riviera Del Río. The moment we walked in we were greeted by staff and offered complimentary drinks and snacks. We were checked in quickly and shown to our room. We stayed in the green room which had a door that led out to the pool and outside bar. The freshly made breakfast...

Loved this place! The owners, Alex and Diego, are both fantastic hosts and provide an amazing environment for out of town people to feel a little bit more like they are apart of the real experience. The funky layout for the hotel really gives it the personality that makes one remember a place unlike the larger, more monotonous hotels in...

Quick walk to the beach, cab from airport for 2 was $21. Upon arrival to Rivera del Rio, greeted warmingly by Ignacio like old friends and handled our baggage up to our room. No elevators, so be ready to climb the stairs. Great hillside views, we had the penthouse, over-looking the pool area and honor bar. Met Alex the next...

We had a great stay - would highly suggest staying there if you are in PV. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff, and the pool was gorgeous. The area is very quiet but it's easy to walk to the beach and business area.

It has been the highlight of our trip. A boutique hotel with a kitsch decor, yet charming and modern. By the Cuale river, walking distance to the waterfront pier. The staff is kind, helpful, understanding and friendly. I couldn't take advantage of all the amenities, but will do next time I visit Puerto Vallarta, I would not stay anywhere else.

This was my second stay at Rivera Del Rio and it's truly timeless . This hotel feels like a fairy tale castle. The rooms are divine and you can't get a better location to explore town but still be off the main roads. They were starting to do some things with the house next door. The wonderful manager Ignacio let...
