The hotel was very clean and very large. I had no idea how large the self-contained compound was. The room smelled musty at first but I understand alot of the hotels have this common problem with the air conditioning. The musty smell went away after running the air for awhile and keeping the screen door open. The pillows are small...

On Monday April 9, 2007 I checked into the Hotel Riu Jalisco, advertised as a five-star club hotel in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico. I booked this trip six months in advance through a local Apple Vacations broker, in anticipation of the high school senior Spring Break trip. There were approximately 50 people in our group who chose the Riu Jalisco...

17 of us ages 11 to 70 stayed at the RIU Jalisco from April 6th until April 13th and had a wonderful time. The Resort is huge, so there is a bit of walking involved. The staff is awesome and the place is very clean. Beautiful grounds. The Bathrooms are too far away from the Beach and Pool. They need...

The Riu Jalisco is a wonderful resort - we loved everything about it! We recently returned from a two week stay and have nothing but good to say about it. In fact, we're going again in December and taking our boy's & their girlfriends with us. After reading numerous reviews about this resort before we left we were not quite...

We just returned from The Riu Jalisco. There were 11 of us ranging from 2 to 89. For the most part we had a fantastic time. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Everything was very clean even though we were there during spring break and there were a lot of people staying in the hotel. The food and drink...

After reviewing some bad reviews we were a little scared. We went with a group of 12 for a wedding. Upon arrival we had to wait to get into our room. No big deal, I changed in the bathroom and went to the lobby bar. I thought the drinks were good. We are a group of beer & whiskey drinkers...

My partner and I decided to go on a relaxing resort-style vacation where your meals, booze/drinks and entertainment are taken care of. Well, you'll get it at the Riu Jalisco. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The buffet food, though repetitive at times, was adequate for a buffet. The 'special reservation' meals 'Brazillian' - well it was nice but...

I have been to many all inclusive resorts, even some that were very cheap and this is by far the worst place I have ever stayed. I would say my standards are relatively low so for me to say a place is bad – it has too be pretty darn bad. The food is the worst part of the hotel...

My wife and I are a late middle aged English couple. We stayed at the Riu from March28th to April 13th 2007. We can honestly say that our holiday was one of the best that we have ever had.

We took 25 family and friends to the Riu Jalisco last October 2006 for our wedding. It was fabulous. The wedding coordinator was great, the photographer even better. The grounds were beautiful and clean. One of the restaurants was closed for renovations, but we still had lots of variety. There were plenty of activities offered and no one was ever...
