We thought the grounds were kept up very nicely and the entertainment and activities kept you busy if you wanted to participate. They could have had more restrooms around the pool area.

Upon our arrival I heard the staff beside us telling another family that was checking in all the amenities that the hotel had to offer , different activities, restaurants ect. When it was our turn to check we got the next staff over . Our staff member took our passports for check in told me to download an app with all the hotels info and sent us on our way. We got to our room on the first floor and immediately were struck by the musty smell . Of course with it being Mexico we assumed we would get used to it and move along. We are a family of four and there was two beds pushed together that were no bigger than a twin. We separated them and got a roll in bed for our daughter. Now if you like to sleep I would not suggest this hotel . The beds are to small for 2 adults. And the beds are hard as a rock. I asked for extra pillows one night and they brought me pillows that actually smelled like had been in someone ls sweaty armpit . It was disgusting. Back to the smell in our room . It never went away it only got worse. Now I know other rooms did not smell like ours as we went with 2 other families . At one point we invited them to our room and they could not even stay because of the smell. I phoned Expedia as I was to nervous to complain to the hotel directly. Their answer was that they would give me a 50$ credit . All and all with the price we paid I’m disappointed with the hotel and Expedia and will not book another vacation with either

My daughter and I had an amazing week at Riu Palace Pacifico mostly thanks to great people that work at the hotel. Starting from the reception and fabulous Diana and Gaby who went out of their way to find us a perfect room. Hotel, restaurants, pool, beach, public washrooms - all super clean and constantly attended to. Food had good varieties and meal times nicely spread over the day to make sure there is always an eating option. Good drinks (not watered down) and OMG best sangria ever! We tried Mexican and Steak House restaurants and they were both good. No advance reservations needed for specialty restaurants which was refreshing and appreciated. Good nightly entertainment. We will back for sure and once hotel goes through a planned renovation at the end of the year and opens up as an adults only resort, I am sure it will be spectacular.
