Beautiful views lovely staff

Riu jalisco was so clean, big, enough for kids to keep busy. They need to change their reservation policy for their restaurants as we stayed for 4 nights and could only get a reservation for 1 restaurant. Bar tenders are the friendliest and nicest people. When we checked out i was not asked how my stay was, or thanked for staying... The customer service/check in needs more training in friendly manners.

awesome couples trip

We had the best room in the resort. It was awesome. The only downfall was the air was not very cool. Maintenance checked it and said it was blowing cool nothing else they could do..other then that staff was awesome no other problems. They do need some help with their nightly shows. We attended one and not again.

Beach for miles

Very friendly staff, excellent buffet style meals. The hotel is about 30 min from the Malecon (downtown boardwalk) but I really like this hotel district north of the airport because if you like the water and walkable beach front this is where to go. I would not pay the transfer fee that are sometimes offered with the trip!!! It's more affordable to cross the bridge right outside of the airport and catch a cab that way. It's around $20 US dollars to most anywhere in the area. Usually there's kids or teenagers by the cab that will help load your bag. They are looking for work so be sure to tip them! PV is a very safe & friendly town. Take walking shoes & be sure to hit the downtown Malecon on a Sat night.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

About 30 min from the airport. Nice ride! (See notes above about grabbing a cab there rather than paying the transfer fee with the inclusive purchase. AND VERY IMPORTANT....after you go thru customs you will be a greeted by a whole bunch of staff that will try to give you maps and ask if you need a taxi....they are all timeshare people. if you want the best trip of your life, just keep going til you get outside THEN get a cab!!

Beautiful beach, fun ambiance, EH food

Visited Rui Jax Saturday De 13- Wed 17, with my little family Hubby, 18 month and I. It's a great family resort. A lot of families, pool was kid friendly, great lay out of pool, palms, beach chairs. Only got to go to one show Michael Jackson which was GREAT! The buffets were convenient. Food was not best, sit in, nor buffets but I didn't expect great food in a budget hotel. I loved being able to go to buffet by beach for lunch and bring food back to beach. Also hamburger stand was convenient, just wished it would've been tacos al pastor we were in Mexico. Saturdays there was a Mariachi at La Cantina. Wished they had them every night. Sunday staff was short and Michelada bar guy wasn't cruising the pool as much as Saturday so that was unfortunate. But bar staff is FAST. Even if you see a long line you won't wait long. Reason only giving a 3 was because of food. I've been to Puerto Vallarta before and on a weeks' stay EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS at each and every different restaurant we ate! So I was really excited to come back and have delicious chilaquiles and coffee which I did not :(. Food was edible but definitely not authentic and delicious.

Riu Jalisco

Excellent staff, very clean hotel. Dining is excellent, entertainment staff at the pool and the shows are incredible. The whole area is very safe and there is security on the grounds and at the entrance. Awesome experience! Gama & Roberto provided great services for water sports at the beach. Very professional & we had a blast!
