Watching sunsets paint the sky just doesn’t feel the same from your bedroom window. Experience the real deal at beachfront Riu Palace Pacifico, where families get the royal, all-inclusive treatment. Beautiful architecture and design come together at this resort where guests enjoy relaxing on Flamingos Beach and spicing things up with a visit to downtown Puerto Vallarta for the lively nightlife.
Families soak up seaside sun on Flamingos Beach, where spectacular sunsets splash the sky with oranges and reds every day. Build sandcastles with the kids, or dive into the cool Pacific. If a pool is more your style, you’ll love the in-water loungers at the resort’s two pools. Go ahead and let the kids splash up a storm; the swim-up Marlin Bar has liquid love in the form of icy margaritas.
I found the Riu Palace Pacifico to be exceptional in decor, cleanliness, atmosphere, food venus, and overall staff in the resort which all make your vacation everything you would want it to be and more. The food at the buffet was delicious, several restaurants with different types of food. The pool was fantastic and the beach is really clean and beautiful, with boogie boards and kayaks free to use. Wonderful trip and would recommend to others.
Chat up fellow guests on the terrace-solarium until it’s time to eat at one of the resort’s five restaurants. Try the tempting gourmet seafood fusion at Krystal, fresh sashimi at Kyoto or a thick filet mignon at La Toscana. Dance off your dinner or laugh through an evening show courtesy of the resort’s jam-packed nightly entertainment lineup. Five bars round out the action nicely: Petit Pigalle has a fantastic martini menu, and the air hockey and pool tables in the 24-hr Sports Bar are a blast.
Offering a high-end vacation experience for discerning travellers, the Riu Palace Pacifico is an exquisite jewel along the sapphire Pacific Ocean in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. The Riu Palace Pacifico offers an array of all inclusive activities for all ages. Revel in a variety of land and water sports, take a dip in the phenomenal swimming pool, and relax on the glorious beach. For an extra treat, indulge in pampering treatments at the fabulous Renova Spa. Supervised activities at the RiuLand Kids Club will keep children entertained so parents can hideaway for some much needed time alone. Featuring elegant accommodations, first class service, and exquisite cuisine, the Riu Palace Pacifico is truly a palace of delights.
We stayed with a group of 12 friends and family from Dec 2 to Dec 9. This resort more than made up for its name “Palace”. The staff were extreamly pleasant and helpful. If something was needed the staff jumped to provide that service. The tours and facilities were all well thought out and everyone had a great time. The staff are always smiling and can’t do enough for you. It’s obvious they love their jobs – we’ve never seen a cleaner, better cared for resort. As for the beaches…we loved our endless walks on the beach, in all honesty we prefer these beaches over the Mayan for this reason alone! I personally can’t wait to go back and enjoy everything all over again.
