Resort Information

The Hotel Riu Palace Pacifico (24h All Inclusive) is located in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico, and is undoubtedly our most luxurious hotel in the area. The high quality service and professionalism of its staff make this hotel the perfect place to spend your holidays.

If you want to escape from the hustle, bustle of the city, and leave behind the stress of everyday life, this Palace offers you the best facilities to cater for your every need. You’ll find a fresh water swimming pool, Jacuzzi, solarium-terrace, gym, sauna and spa with a range of different treatments and massages.

Thanks to the All Inclusive system you can enjoy Mexican cuisine at its best. It includes a wide variety of recipes and is recognized for its distinctive and sophisticated flavors which incorporate many spices. It is a combination of gastronomic traditions, including Mesoamerican and European ones, as well as many others, which is why the buffet restaurant and the different themed restaurants of the hotel offer the best menus and made to order dishes.

You will also find numerous activities and sports to enjoy during your stay. You can play volleyball, do gymnastics, windsurfing, catamaran, kayaking, bodyboarding, golf and many other water sports at the beach. At night you mustn’t miss the different shows and live music organized for you by the entertainers. If you want to go dancing we invite you to the “Pacha club” where our DJs play the best beats. Your children will have a ball with other children in the RiuLand program where crafts and sports are just some of the leisure activities organized by the entertainers.

Surrounded by the beautiful Banderas Bay and protected by the impressive Sierra Madre you will find Nueva Vallarta, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico. With excellent beaches and water sports, this city gives you the opportunity to get closer to nature, at its most unique. If you want to go on excursions and discover the surroundings, we recommend you to make a stop at Banderas Bay to see the release of sea turtles, swim with dolphins, observe blue whales, go horse riding in the Sierra Madre, and for the more adventurous we suggest bungee jumping. In the beach area, you will find many restaurants, bars, cafés, shops and businesses where you can buy souvenirs.
