Positive Reviews

Clean as a whistle

Guests who have stayed at the Riu Vallarta have commented on how clean the rooms and communal areas are. Housekeeping staff work around the clock to ensure the hotel is always spotless, and are quick to respond to any queries or requests.

It's the little things that count

The waiter service at the beach for drinks is an example of how staff at the resort will go the extra mile to ensure that guests are happy. Guests feel that it's small touches such as this which would entice them to return.

Delightful dining

The buffet restaurant "Don Rafael" receives great praise from guests. Not only is the quality of the food consistently excellent, but the choice of dishes offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner is extremely wide - there really is something for everyone.

Negative Reviews

Entertainment could be improved

The evening entertainment at the Riu Vallarta doesn't get great reviews from guests, with some commenting that it's repetitive and a little corny. That said, most guests appreciate that the animation team work extremely hard to keep guests entertained.

Refresh wouldn't go amiss

Some guests have commented that the hotel could do with a slight refresh. For example, some mentioned that the ceiling in the lobby area has a tendency to leak when it's raining which is a potential hazard during Mexico's rainy season.

Do you speak English?

Both the evening entertainment and the in-room televisions at the Riu Vallarta are more geared towards Spanish speaking guests, which has left some guests perplexed as the majority of people staying there are British, American and Canadian.
