My husband, brother, and his fiancee' just got back yesterday, 2/25/04, from a week's vacation at the Riu Jalisco. Overall, it was an excellent vacation and property, especially because we got it for an excellent all-inclusive value through Apple Vacations. I have just two main complaints: 1. The rooms are musty/damp. I read that before we went, and figured that,... More

Ok, heres the deal. I read all the reviews here before I went to RIU Jalisco. It is so amazing that I only noticed the good reviews that where on here. But I did notice that all the bad reviews where exactly as the where written. I am going to start that a 5 star hotel should be a five... More

I would highly recommend the Riu Jalisco in Puerto Vallarta to anyone. It is an amazing resort. There is always some kind of entertainment going on. The food is never ending and the people are great. All of the employees of the Riu Jalisco were very energetic and always made sure we were having a good time. The hotel and... More

We just returned on 2/22/04 from a 7day stay at the Riu. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking and postcard-like. The rooms, not so nice. There were no alarm clocks to be found, little fruitflies flying about, and the entire room was continuously damp and musty. Be sure to bring slippers for the cold tile floor, or you'll end up paying... More

After looking for a resort to stay at we decided on the Riu Jalisco for the week of Febuary 9th to the 16th. When we arrived we walked into what we thought would be a wonderful trip. Many things were okay, but our two main complaints would be the entertainment and the service. The entertainment was poor and not well... More

Riu is in a nice location located about 30 min north of Puerto Vallarta. You get a great designed building and a staff that will make your holiday great. The beach is lovely and long. The grounds are kept spectacular. The resort can seem too large at some times, but you'll get use to it. If you are younger than... More

We visited the Riu Jalisco from November 1 through November 8, 2003. It was a fantastic resort all around. The food was great, the rooms were beautiful, and the bartenders were the best. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Mexico.

We've been to Mexico 11 times, stayed at 9 different resorts and 7 different all-inclusives (both 4 & 5 stars) on both Mexican coasts. The RIU was our least favorite. Though the building, grounds, and rooms are beautiful and clean, our room ( and thus our clothes, the bed, etc. ) smelled very musty, probably because the shower drained so... More

Stayed at the Riu Jalisco 2/7 - 2/14. POSITIVES: Grounds, with fountains, reflecting pools, and knockout building architecture. Beautuful and endless beach. Food - more cook stations than most AIs, but less variety. Over all, better than average AI food. Rooms colorfullly decorated and still have "new" feel (hotel is only 2 yrs old). NEGATIVES: Room locks use KEYS (with... More

We spent 7 days at Riu Jalisco and enjoyed every moment of the day. The buffet dining was very good. The evening meal at the Nayarit was not very good, this could be improved. The noon meal at the Nayarit was very good. Many people expressed the same comment. The shows were very low budget and also need improvement. The... More
