The Riu Vallarta lines up five restaurants, four pools and a high-spec spa. Plus, a recent refurb's added a kids' club and a gym to the mix.
You'll find this hotel pulled up along Playa de Flamingos Beach, a sweeping strip of amber-coloured sand on Mexico's Pacific coast. You can flake out on a sunbed here, or hit the waves with a catamaran sailing or bodyboarding session.
You've got free rein of a handful of new facilities, courtesy of a recent refurbishment. An Italian à la carte brings the restaurant count up to five.
There are four pools here. One of them has sunloungers sunken into the water and another has a swim-up bar. Little splashers have their own pool with some slides, too. If saltwater and sand are more your scene, you can chill out on a free sunbed on Playa de Flamingos beach.
