Overview

This hotel was fully renovated in winter 2019, which means there are plenty of fancy new features to get your hands on. They include a new pool - raising the total to four - a glitzy Italian restaurant, a posh gourmet eatery and a hefty kids' club.

You'll find the Riu Vallarta perched on Playa de Flamingos Beach, a humongous strip of almond-coloured sand. Here, you can spread out and make sand angels, float in toasty-warm water and get behind the controls of a small catmaran sailing boat.

Please Note

While you're away, you'll have access to our 24-hour digital service, and a rep will visit at least once.

Pools

Four dipping spots pack out the pool scene. They include a swanky number with a swim-up bar and another with some submerged sunbeds. Sprogs, meanwhile, can whizz down the slides over in the splash pool.

Pool Scene

You can sink your toes into the sand of Playa de Flamingos Beach, which is a stone's throw from the pools. The whole thing's dusted with sunbeds and tropical trees.

Food & Drink

Grub's dished up in five restaurants. You can chow down at the international buffet, or sink your teeth into Italian, gourmet, Asian and grilled options in the à la cartes.

Evening tipple's on tap at the three bars. One's a sports bar, one's in the lobby and another's near the lounge.

Entertainment

Rugrats rule the roost in the new RiuLand kids' club. It's got a load of arts and crafts stations, as well as a hefty list of team games.

Sports & Activities

Small catamaran sailing, kayaking and bodyboarding top the to-do list down on the beach. If you'd prefer to stay dry, a volleyball court's plonked on the sand, as well.

Facility Overview

The pool scene's had a fresh lick of paint, and it totals up four splashing spots – one has a swim-up bar. Five restaurants are plopped around the hotel, including an international buffet and a brand-new Italian à la carte. A top-notch RiuLand kids' club's new to the scene, too, complete with arts and crafts areas and some team games. Parents, meanwhile, can curl some iron in the top-of-the-range gym.

Health & Beauty

While the young'uns go off and play, grown-up can treat themselves to some me-time in the spa.

If pumping iron is more your style, you can curl some dumbbells in the gym. It's also stocked with some treadmills and strength-training machines.
