We flew back from Riu Jalisco today and instead of repeating what everyone else is saying, I'll sum up the other points that I found would've been much more usefull had I known about them in advance.... First of all-the property is huge. The rooms are spacious, and a little air freshner will help with any smells you might have....

The hotel is just gourgeous and the service is impecable. The grounds were well kept and the rooms were very clean. The only downside that my family and I (my husband and two college students)experienced was the variety of the food. The restaurants seemed repetative and the selection was limited. We have travelled to other all inclusives and found the...

After reading several reviews for the Riu Jalisco (some were bad and some were good), we decided to stay there on our vacation to Puerto Vallarta. We spent 7 nights there in late July. I will say that we will most likely never stay at another Riu again. From the exterior the hotel looks very nice, the landscaping, etc. However,...

Since it was my 1st holiday anywhere tropical my 1st night was amazing. Although when we arrived someone was in our room so they double booked it oh well no harm no foul. That didn't ruin my mood. The rooms were immaculate considering I've stayed at hotels (not 4 or 5 star though). Free liquor bar in the room! A...

While most of the tourists in this hotel are nice, respectful people, unfortunately, there are some american tourists with a profound lack of respect for others at this place. Between 23:00 and 4:00 you can hear people yelling in the halls, constantly slamming the doors over and over again, throwing food at each other, and even howling at the ice...

Our family (2 adults and 3 teens) stayed at the Riu Jalisco from August 1st-10th. Some of the concerns posted by other travelers have merit, but he majority do not. Overall, I was very satisfied and recommend this hotel as very good for the price. CLIENTELE: I estimate that guests were 50% American, 30% Mexican, 10% UK and 10% Canadian...

I really do feel that there are people that should do the rest of the world a favor and stay put in their negative mental cesspools. The RIu Jalisco was an overall great experience. Sure, one could complain about the food becoming somewhat repetitive if you only stuck to the same old buffets and there was a wide variation in...

Regarding about the Riu Jalisco. I think the hotel need to be update, it looks very good outside, I would rate 4 stars, the room and food service, I would rate 2 stars.
