Riu Vallarta re-opens with new features, refurbished facilities and enhanced amenities

Top-rated family resort, Riu Vallarta, has re-opened following extensive renovations and modernizations. Featuring a contemporary and elegant style, the property now offers three new dining venues and a refurbished pool area.

Situated on the shores of Playa de Flamingos in Riviera Nayarit, Riu Vallarta now benefits from a stylish new lobby with décor and architectural elements inspired by the Art Deco era. In addition, all 678 guestrooms were fully refurbished with a modern tropical vibe. Vacationers can spend their days lounging by the revamped pool area, now with a total of five pools, including a swim-up bar with breathtaking ocean views, and kids pool with mini water slides.

Guests can now choose from six different dining options with unlimited reservation-free dining included in their stay, with the addition of three new venues: an Italian restaurant, a grill, and a steakhouse. The existing restaurants, Kulinarium and Nirvana, were updated with new contemporary décor and Don Rafael now features a larger terrace and air-conditioned area.
