    Our stay here and the Riu Vallarta was amazing! Don’t pay attention to the negative reviews! Food: breakfast and dinner buffets are delicious! Lunch is just ok. Didn’t try restaurants which you do not need a reservation for. Drinks: Liquor possibly watered down but it seems that way with many all-inclusive resorts. Mango margarita and spicy mango shot is a must! Just tell them extra strong! Staff: very friendly and work hard to make sure you are happy. Be kind, say hi and you will discredit the negative reviews that people say staff are rude. Because they are not. If anything there were many rude guests Property: is very clean and staff are constantly cleaning to make sure it stays that way Covid testing is free and hassle free. They schedule the appointment for you and doctor comes out to resort. CONS Only downfall is that it is very far from town and the Malecon. Taxi rides back and forth can get pricey. Resort should consider a shuttle And entertainment especially at night (shows and music) was not so great also. They definitely need to work on that
