relaxed. very old, basic rooms for a 4* but this tends to be traditional Mexican/Riu style. Our stay was overall t real complaints about the resort (especially for the price). The pools open at 9am, but we still saw people before 7am going to put towels on sunloungers! We traveled to PV in May and stayed at a different resort and the weather was much better (way less humidity and still hot) The comments and opinions on this Ratings and Reviews section of our website are the views and opinions of TripAdvisor members.Nighttime music was good, but would have like some more easier listening, or softer music, as it went later in to the night. Food, drinks, entertainment.all good. RIU Vallarta, bRET. Bar service was excellent. At first the hotel wanted to switch us to the Pacifico, which is not what we wanted, so wasted time the first day and part of the second day dealing with the changes. Second Trip To NV RIU, dritan. Food was better in the sit down restaurants.
