The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful nothing is too much. Yes the rooms are a little dated but very clean and spacious. The food catered for everyone and was always freshly cooked. We have just spent 2 weeks at this hotel and I really can’t fault the place apart from a couple of storms which the hotel can’t be blamed for. I’ve read some reviews from recent holiday makers and can’t believe how they their complaints there really unfounded. If the other RUI hotels are anything like this one then we will defiantly be traveling to them in the future, fantastic all round memorable holiday.

Had a lovely time here. The staff were amazing and always friendly. The food was beautiful and the buffet was the best we have ever been to. The hotel and rooms were spotless and they were forever cleaning the lobby, grounds, pool etc. Only had to wait once for a speciality restaurant, about 20 minutes which is good considering you don't book and in 2 weeks as well. Really can't fault the hotel and ever so friendly staff who always said good morning and were ever so pleasant. Were not one for shows but watched a few and they were brilliant, especially the Michael Jackson show. When the shows weren't on there was entertainment on before and a live band afterwards. A Big Thank You Riu Vallarta for a lovely time in Mexico.

Visited 31 may - 14 jun 2018 with Tui. Hotel was lovely. Staff were amazing. Special shout out for Lola in animation, bar tenders Diego, Pedro, Vanessa, Victor and Theresa, waiter Georges, housemaid Veroniqua. All did amazing jobs. Only faults really are the pool area and food. Food needs to be a lot hotter. Variety was ok but everything seemed to be luke warm. The pool areas definitely need to be upgraded, especially the floor. It is filthy as are the sunbeds and tables. Other than that lived the hotel. Evening entertainment was good especially the opera singer who stole the hearts of all the ladies 😁 Room was spotless although bed a little too firm for me. Staff were all so friendly and a credit to Riu.

This was our third consecutive holiday at Riu Vallarta . We are a couple in our 50s and have traveled to many parts of the Caribbean & Europe.......this is the only hotel we have ever wanted to revisit. The staff are so friendly and it has a lovely ambience. We left just over a week ago and miss this hotel very much. The waiting staff in the main buffet restaurant are hard working and attentive....special thanks to Rogelio who looked after us most days at breakfast. The bartenders also worked hard and our glasses were never empty if we dared to sit next to the lobby bar or the bar in the theatre!! The animation team are a real credit to the hotel. We took part in stretching, aqua aerobics and dance classes....all good fun. A big thank you to David for the dance lessons and the very personalised stretching classes. Also thank you to Gardenia, Javier, Pepe, Liz, Ramon, Luis & Ismail.... We have fond memories of this hotel and will definitely return again one day. I hope that when the hotel is refurbished it does not lose its charm.

Riu Vallarta is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Hotel We were there for a week in early August and expected more from a 5 star resort. Food was average, very crowded during the breakfast buffet so it was difficult to find a table every morning, let alone getting to the food items. Communication was challenging with front desk staff, housekeeping was marginal as we constantly had to call for forgotten items, like washcloths and bath mat. We ended up fixing the toilet on our own, as the front desk could not understand what we were asking and many days when we got back to our room at 3:00 our room was still not cleaned. A beach security staff member named Roberto rudely made a point of telling us our beach stairs were too far forward and couldn't seem to understand English, or why my wife couldn't speak Spanish. And being that it was almost 5:00pm, we weren't sure why it became an issue at this late stage of the day. When we spoke to the assistant manager about Roberto the security guard he didn't seem too concerned. Entertainment was marginal and not very exciting....only enjoyed the Michael Jackson impersonator. Room and beach were always clean and the bartenders did well to make connections with us and others during their shifts. Would not travel to this resort again or any other Riu resort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great getaway! So happy that I took this much needed vacation. The booking experience was flawless and the vacation was extraordinary! Definitely going to do his again. Red Tag has been my go-to vacation site and will continue to to be. The Riu Vallarta was amazing. The staff, food, accommodations and drinks were exactly was I was expecting. The nightly entertainment was quite good too. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great views, extremely clean and felt very safe Love the views, excellent staff, very clean premises. However, rooms need refurbishing and when done would be awesome. Beach is lovely and could walk a very long way. This hotel really tries hard to please their guests and had the best entertainment when compared to Riu Playa Blanca, Riu Cancun and Mazatlan. Love Jose Curiel a local singer. No bugs or mosquitoes. Food is average and the buffet staff were great, special shout out to Della. Would be nice if people tipped the hard working staff as a show of appreciation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short but excellent vacations This great hotel has all the essentials you're looking for when you go on vacation. We had a great suite facing the ocean and the sunset is beautiful. Food is good (only missing Jamon Serrano being a Spanish chain), only 3 a la carte restaurants that I couldn't try because you have to wake up really early to book. Beach is spotless, no seaweed at all and easy to find a chair to laydown. Same with the pool if you go before 9 am. Staff really nice, specially the waitress in the bar next to the theatre, she was incredibly good! The only "but" (and it's not important) is not to announce that you can't bring a floatie to lay down, you can use a small one, but a regular one to lay down is not allowed. Great experience overall!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Found the hotel rooms to be clean, the food was good, beach and pool were good as well but had to get there by 9am to get a chair which was a little disappointing. Booking suppers was a huge disappointment. We stood in line at 8am the second morning only to find out the next 2 nights were booked already and you could only book two nights in advance so were told to come back. We never went back. We have seen where they use computers to log in under your room number and book your suppers which is so much better. The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased overall! Resorts are getting so huge now that my favorite thing about the Riu Vallarta was the size.. It was definately a 5 star resort but not too large. All food, service and amenities were excellent.
