Our Opinion

The Riu Vallarta is a beautiful property in the Riviera Nayarit area, about 10 minutes drive from the market at Bucerias. This is the middle property in terms of quality amongst the 3 Riu resorts in Riviera Nayarit. Riu Palace Pacifico being the best and Riu Jalisco slightly more economical. This resort is great for any couples and families looking for a fun resort with very good service. In our opinion the 5 star rating by the Riu is a bit generous, 4 star is probably a better representation for this resort. A renovation may be in order to bring this resort back to a 5 star rating.

Riu Vallarta

Located directly on beautiful Flamingos Beach, the Riu Vallarta wonderfully combines the brand's trademark service with Vallarta's charm. Every stay includes buffet and a la carte dining options, 24-hour all-inclusive service, a variety of non-motorized water sports, great pools, a fitness centre, an introductory scuba lesson, daily entertainment for adults and children, live music, theme shows, a disco, a supervised kid's program and so much more.

Location: On Flamingos Beach, 2 km from Nuevo Vallarta, 15 min. from the airport and 20 min. from downtown Puerto Vallarta.
