First Stay at this RIu. I brought my kids with me on this trip and was very happy with the accommodations and the service. They had a blast and enjoyed the amenities the resort had to offer. enjoyed going boogie boarding, playing water polo, competing in resort Olympic games, and aqua aerobics. room was nice and clean, a little smaller than I thought it would be from pics but still more than enough room for the 3 of us.The staff was awesome especially the event and RIu fit staff. Very fun and comfortable stay.

The hotel was very clean and well kept but I think a little to big. It was hard to get two seats together at the pool even if you went down early in the morning. Also did not care for the restaurant arrangements. You needed to make reservations for dinner 2 days in advance and usually when you tried they told us there were none so we ended up at the buffet that never served anything different. We probably would not stay here again.

My husband and I recently visited PV for a week of R&R. We booked the ClubHotel Riu Jalisco all-inclusive with Apple Vacations and got a very good deal. We flew non-stop from Philadelphia on Aero Mexico. These were chartered flights and were not overbooked - very nice! The resort is absolutely gorgeous. Impressive fountain courtyard with beautiful landscaping, beautiful pools (loved the swim-up bar!) and clean inviting beach with plenty of lounge chairs and palm trees. Swimming in the Bay of Banderas was a delight - gentle, rolling waves, clear water and clean sand under your feet. During our stay, the resort was kept meticulously clean. Staff could be seen throughout the day mopping the expansive tile floors, shining glass and wiping down furniture. Our king size bedroom on the 6th floor had a great view of the courtyard. The bed was very comfortable with crisp white linens and fluffy pillows. Very nice finishes in the bath area with a large step in shower and separate WC. There was a large flat-screen TV, but very limited English channels. Large closet with lots of hangers and a safe. Maid service was excellent, as was all the service in the resort. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. On the whole, the food was good, but we were a little disappointed with the quality of the evening meals. Perhaps it was due to our later dining habits, or the fact that meals here are mass-produced, but some of the entrees were dry and unappetizing. Breakfast and lunch buffets were much better. All meals had a nice variety of choices, though there are a lot of repeat offerings. Another point worth considering is that there were lots of families at the resort. Couples seeking a romantic getaway may want to consider an adults-only resort. That said, it's a great place to vacation with the kids, with separate swimming and play areas. The spa is lovely, including the secluded hot tub area. Nadia and Alejandra were very sweet and attentive - a very relaxing morning! The outdoor bars were very lively during and after the entertainment each evening. Discotheque is loud and pulsating for the younger set. Dance lessons and fitness classes round out the day. I loved that you could find activities to do if you wished or (like me) you could find a quiet spot on the beach to laze the day away. Plenty of day or half-day trips to take - go into town to shop or into the jungle to zip-line or horse-back ride up to a hidden fresh-water falls and swim in the grotto (my fave). I recommend Vallarta Adventures - the staff is awesome! My favorite thing about the all-inclusive: doing tequila shots in our room! : )

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor with a view.

We stayed at the Riu Jalisco April 6th-9th, 2014 and would highly recommend this resort. When you first walk in to the hotel it is beautiful. We arrived at 11am and check in is normally 3pm but they already had a room available for us. The hotel was very clean with maids mopping the floors all the time, staff was exceptional, food was wonderful. The bartenders were excellent and right on top of getting your drinks. We enjoyed watching the fun interactive games at the pool and the shows at night. We would definately return to Riu Jalisco!!!

I had a review about this resort with pictures... somehow they seem to have disappeared.
The resort was very clean.
the rooms were clean .hated the bad it had a plastic cover on it. you can hear everything in the hallways like screaming teens that are coming home at 4 o'clock in the morning!
also it smells like a litter box in the hallways maybe because of all the wild cats peeing everywhere.!!!
the staff was amazing bartenders were great entertainment that was amazing...
