Rising from an oasis of palms on a long stretch of beach, triangular turrets glimmer silver in the Vallarta sun. A white Mediterranean Palace, Moorish style with arches and columns, has walkways and gardens that surround 2 lagoon pools. An impressive brass Crown (reminiscent of the legendary Vallarta cathedral), in the courtyard faces the green blue Pacific Ocean. Pelicans skim waves which gently break over miles of gold sand - a beach lover's dream.
Lobby and restaurants are enriched with polished wood, frescos, hand painted floral ceilings and mosaic tiles - the artistic flair, the signature of extraordinary Riu Resorts. The theme, the state of Jalisco, Mexico is intermingled with the décor. Scrumptious buffets are offered at Don Emiliano, and Dona Adelita, Italian specialties at Rodicio Nayarit and lighter fare by the sea at La Bontana. A Grand Opening Special welcomes you to this spectacular hotel.
