This is one of the most terrible places I have ever been to in my life. First of the breakfast and lunch buffet are terrible, in fact so terrible that the first day we just went hungry because we couldn't stomach the food. The room they gave us had a smell of mold and mildew so strong you couldn't hardly... More

I have traveled extensively on cruises, all inclusive and stand alone. I read the negative reviews thoroughly before going and I came into the vacation with an open mind. I travelled with my wife and 2 kids (10&4). From July 13-20. We got a great last minute deal for $2448 for all 4. Going to the resort flight was 32... More

My friend, and my 3 kids just returned yesterday from our 7 day stay at Riu Jalisco. This was our first experience with an all-inclusive and we weren't disappointed. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The food was good - good variety of restaurants to choose from. Buffet had a lot to choose from. I was very impressed... More

They came in to clean out room but they just took the sheets from one bed and put them on the other. No clean sheets till we checked... More

The Riu Jalisco delivered for everything it is. A clean room, some good food, at a great price. This hotel is not five star luxury, it is a basic resort with basic amenities and is advertised and priced as such. This is a great place for someone’s first Mexico all inclusive experience. The resort itself is huge! There are a... More

Travelled to the Riu Jalisco during the week of June 27-July 4/15. Our overall impression was that this is a very nice resort. Very modern looking, well maintained and grounds are kept impeccable. We travelled with a large group of family and friends (36 ppl) and most of us have pretty much the same feelings for this review. Check in... More

My daughter and I stayed here the first week of May. We hit a really good deal and enjoyed ourselves. It wasn't 5 star but I wasn't expecting that! Good food, clean rooms, a lot of great drinks, friendly people, what else could you want?? My only comment was that the bathrooms around the pool and beach could be kept... More

Beautiful grounds. Standard room was very nice. Pool seemed good but the beach was so nice to swim in, we didn't even bother with it. Food was above average for an all inclusive. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only complaint I had was if you want good beach chairs you have to wake up pretty early, many are broken. We... More

Myself and 4 of my friends stayed here from June 15 to the 22nd. Let me begin by saying the hotel was OVER RUN with children from newborn up. Both pools were small and you would not be able to even outstretched your arms without touching someone!!! There are NO bathrooms on the lower buffet level of the hotel you... More
