We stayed at the Riu Vallarta May of 2017
The one positive about this resort it is very kid friendly. I have stayed at many Riu resorts and this one was definitely my least favorite, other than they were great with the kids. So if you are taking kids this would be a good choice! My least favorite about this resort is the beds are so hard it's almost miserable. The staff and service was great. I just felt for instance the Palace a few hotels down was more elite in every way.
-Hope this helps

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Most speak English and are very polite. The resort grounds are very well maintained. Many beautiful palms and flowers. The beach was perfect and groomed every morning. The resort is 20 to 30 minutes from the downtown PV boardwalk, it cost us $10 US for the taxi ride there. The food was great, the French restaurant is a must!
