We stayed at the Rui Vallarta for two weeks in August. The hotel it's self is lovely and couldn't be cleaner. There is always maids out cleaning the hallways and grounds. We were upgraded to a suit and it was worth it the room was always cleaned and we had great views of the pools and sea. The food is... More

The restaurant by the ocean was wonderful and served a great 3 course meal in the evening. Breakfast was also excellent. This is a wonderful place for... More

We loved this hotel! The staff were great and nothing was any trouble. The surroundings were beautiful and the there was plenty going on for every family member. We enjoyed massages on the beach and in the spa. Both were incredible and topped off with a sneaky glass of all inclusive champagne!

Was here for 2 weeks with my boyfriend. We made the most of it and had a good time but this is definitely NOT a five star resort!!!!! Check in: Very swift. Had a private taxi so got there before the coach transfers. Bell boy called Marco brought our luggage up to our rooms which was a nice touch. Refreshments... More

We travelled to Puerto Vallarta for a sun/beach holiday outside of Europe as we seemed to get more for our money travelling outside of Europe than we would have got for 2 weeks in say Spain. It was me and my partner and our friends another couple. The hotel was a little dated. The sister hotel next door was definitely... More
