Just got back from the Riu Jalisco, we were there from 10/3 through 10/10. Actually we were there with 9 other couples, all leaving our kids at home (woohoo!) for an adults-only getaway vacation. We're all in the 35 to 45 set and like to have fun. My wife and I have been to several Mexican resort destinations - Cancun,... More

The staff are very friendly and the bartenders make your day fun! We read the reviews and I can't believe some of the things people wrote about the Riu. Go and have a good time and don't... More

We stayed at the Riu Jalisco 9/27 - 10/4. Some of the reviews on this site gave us pause, but we found a fantastic package through Suntrips and decided to give it a try. We were VERY glad that we did. The hotel was really beautiful and impeccably maintained, the beach was nice, the staff were helpful, and we had... More

We returned home last night from the Riu after spending a glorious week. Our overall experience rates the Riu as a very good 4 star All Inclusive. We have been to both hotels and All Inclusives in Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo, Ixtapa, Acapulo, Mexico City and Cancun and consider the Riu equal to some of the best. The buffets were fresh... More

I have just returned from a week vacation at the RIU, 9/18-9/25. I must say I also read up on this resort. I have no problem standing up to the quality of this place. 1. Service is outstanding, in the front resturants, Pedro was great. Food is of choice, and others with bad coments on food must be real picky... More

My husband and I stayed at the Riu Jalisco from Sept. 11-18. This was our second time in Puerto Vallarta at the Riu. We are both normal, average, hard-working people who spend a year saving up cash for a week of pleasure. We are ages 29 and 32, both working in the healthcare field. We were delighted with our experiences.... More

If you want peace and quiet or just a good nights sleep don't go to the Riu. It was non stop noise. I should have done more research and I will take some responsibility with my choice of resorts. Food- ok much of the same thing everyday. we were so tired of it we took a cab the last night... More

We returned from Riu Jalisco on September 19, 2004 after a week’s holiday. Like many readers, I checked on-line what others have said before we went made our choice of hotel.
