Our Opinion

Riu Palace Pacifico is easily the best of the 3 Riu resorts in Riviera Nayarit. This awe inspiring resort is a true 5 star from its intricate interior to is grand exterior. Top notch service and true pampering are to be had at this fine resort which is perfect for couples. Families with children may enjoy the Riu Jalisco or Riu Vallarta over this resort, as there will probably be more activities for the children at the sister resorts. However, If you are looking for one of the nicest resorts in Riviera Nayarit, this is it!

Riu Palace Pacifico

Riu Resorts latest resort in Riviera Nayarit, the Riu Palace Pacifico has been spared no expense to get it just right, as evidenced by the momentous exterior, a fitting tribute to the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations of Mexico. Here, rush is a four letter word and relaxation on the powdery fields of palm fringed beach is the highlight of the day. Expect sizzling afternoons to melt into halcyon evenings with the same ease as the ice in your favourite libation.
Location: Located in Riviera Nayarit, on Playa de Flamingos beach, 2 km from Nuevo Vallarta, 15 km from Puerto Vallarta, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, 13 km from the airport.
