I believe you have to call ahead and request it. You will want the south end of the building, as pool number 1 is at the north end it is very noisy and is the party spot until about midnight.
-Definitely go to the mexican a la carte it was delicious. the Italian was very good as well. (it's the only restaurant with a/c). the japjap (japanese) and the wok(thai) were ok but I think I would rather had more choices at the buffet.
-the cleaner the maids use smells so good! weird but it's one thing both my fiance and I loved haha. The show's at night were awesome! you have to go. 95% of the tourists are Canadian so the staff plays up the Canadian pride. (I almost felt bad for the Americans)
-We read a lot of reviews on tripadvisor before going, so I feel we were prepared for most things you need to know about. It's a long way to Peurto Vallarta from the resort. I underestimated the distance. it's a 40 taxi ride to downtown PV. it will cost 200 pesos each way. We only went once which was fine by us, as Bucerias is an awesome little authentic mexican town that's right beside the RDC.
-our room was one big shower only.
We are going to go back to the RDC when we get married as that's where we got engaged. it's a perfect AI resort at a good price. We haven't decided if we are having the wedding at the resort or off.
Hope this helps
Do you recall if there were bus trips that go to PV for clubbing/bar hopping?
