We just spent two weeks at the Riu Jalisco and were very disappointed in it. The hotel is beautiful, the gardens awesome. However, there were 3 families that had their room safe's drilled open and valuables stolen in a matter of a couple of days. It makes you wonder about the ones we did not hear about. Towards the second... More

Just returned from the Riu Jalisco. I must agree with others who reported a funny, musty smell in the rooms. It became quite nauseating at times. Rooms are small and beds are very hard, and uncomfortable. The resort is very noisy and it was hard to sleep at night due to the noise from the halls and from the show... More

My family - ages 43, 43, 24, and 21 ust returned from PV 4/12/04. We loved the Riu with very few exceptions and I am surprised by some of the bad reviews. True that the rooms do not have clocks, shower gel or lotion, but I did not expect it to and brought my own. Also true that some of... More

The RIU Jalisco is an absolutely beautiful environment. We only had one negative about the entire stay. We felt that the food at the "sit down" formal restaurant was tastey, but not really what I was hoping the menu to contain. I guess I was comparing it to the Grand Club Marival where you had a much wider variety of... More

My girl-friend and I had a such a great time. I just made plans to go to the Riu Jalisco again in May 2004. The entire staff was amazing. The food was always tasty. Just the way the maid would make my bed was always a nice treat including towels in the shape of elephants and other animals. If you... More

My husband and I just got back from 8 fun-filled days at the Riu Jalisco. The hotel grounds were goreous, staff is extremely friendly, beautiful beach and pool, massive amounts of food & drink. The food was delicious, but I do agree with all the other reviews, it gets repetitive. That just means you should venture off the resort and... More

Just got back on 4/3/04 from PVR. Timing may be everything as our visit included spring break season. The property was beautiful, but the ammenities and guests had much to be desired. Too many privileged teen-aged spring breakers (16 & 17 year olds) traveling with parents who didn't mind their flock. The underaged teens were very drunk and running wild... More

I have just returned from a week at Riu Jalisco and unlike most of the other reviews was not overly impressed. If you are between the ages of 18-24 or a couple with young children this place would be OK. The food is adequate (although the selection limited), the service is O.K. the rooms are small and basic and the... More

My husband and I just returned from our honeymooon at Riu -- fabulous! The grounds were kept as clean as possible, there were plenty of activities, easy access to downtown Pta. Vallarta by cab or bus, beautiful white sand beach, very good food with a good variety. The menu changed a little every night we were there. I'm wondering, reading... More

We were there from Monday 3/22-Friday night 3/26. Beautiful grounds, lovely beach area, but no shade on the beach. You can walk for miles on flat sand. Plenty of chairs everywhere. Shade is to be found under palapas by the pools. The 5 of us found the food to be delicious. Plenty of fresh fish, grouper, mahi mahi, salmon. Yes,... More
